Delicious State-ments | Colorado + Peaches

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Colorado Peaches

Peaches are believed to have originated in China where locals assigned them mystical attributes, claiming that the fruit brought luck and abundance to whoever consumed them. Many centuries and a few Spanish-exploration-trips-to-the-New-World later, Colorado has become well known – world renowned, in fact – for having arguably the best peaches on Earth.

It seems a self-fulfilling prophecy, then, that anybody biting into a fresh Colorado peach is extremely lucky to be enjoying such anabundance of juicy, rich flavor. Furthermore, Coloradoans are lucky to live in a state with such anabundance of amazing qualities, so it’s no wonder we’d choose peaches to represent The Centennial State.

Colorado peaches are truly one of nature’s candies, so adding them to any dish brings otherworldly deliciousness. Try the three Colorado peach recipes below from some of the state’s greatest food minds and see what new mile-high flavor heights your tastebuds can experience.

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #1 – All That Sunshine

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

CO Sunshine

Sitting atop our list of 10 Things We Love About Colorado, number one needs the least explanation of all. We at DRY HQ in Seattle pine for the sun, and when we’re in Colorado it always seems to deliver on its promise of 300 days of sunshine.

While some will refute the state’s official claim of “300 days of sunshine,” it’s less about scientific qualification and more about what the bits of sunshine each day enable one to do. Illuminating landscapes, promoting active lifestyles, helping grow fresh local food: it’s amazing what that big ball of light and vitamin D can do.

So thank you, sun, for making all other things on our list possible. We hope you’ll take an extended summer vacation up to Seattle soon.

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #2 – Snow Culture

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Ski Colorado - Zach Dischner

Time for a little word association: when we say “Colorado,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Exactly.

Whether rope-tow-beginner or seasoned thrillseeker, draping Colorado’s incredible landscapes with fresh powder makes the outdoors that much more perfect on the slopes. There’s a reason why Colorado is is one of the snow sports capitols of the world. The state even boasts the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum and Hall of Fame.

The 22 resorts in Colorado, along with plenty of backcountry, offer a diverse range of snow experiences. It’s just up to you to get out and explore them!

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #3 – Conquering a Fourteener

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Pike’s Peak

We thought we’d get through this list without mentioning anything outdoorsy again, but we simply couldn’t resist; the allure of climbing one of the state’s many fourteeners was just too good (and just too Colorado) for us to pass up.

A fourteener (14er) is a mountain that exceeds 14,000 ft above sea level, and Colorado is lucky enough to be home to the majority of all fourteeners in North America. Some of the more popular climbs, such as Pike’s Peak above, have inspired experienced climbers with the goal of climbing all of the state’s fourteeners. This pastime of climbing fourteeners is one more embodiment of the active Colorado spirit. That being said, we’re still catching our Washingtonian breath just thinking about it.

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #4 – Museum of Contemporary Art Denver

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

MCA Denver

As much as we’ve fallen in love with Colorado as a hub for our outdoorsy side, our foodie side and our local business side, MCA Denver helps nourish our design and culture side in ways we thought only Seattle could.

MCA Denver is a unique spot as it does not house any permanent collection, instead rotating its five exhibition spaces with travelling installations of new/mixed media, photography and modern art. Throw in the fact that the building is LEED-Gold certified, and we may have just found the perfect place to beat the heat in a Colorado summer.

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #5 – Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Whether we’re hanging out at Make Music Pasadena or hosting parties at SXSW, we’re all-around music junkies here at DRY Soda. Since we’re also nature junkies, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre feeds both of our sensory addictions more than suitably.

While most people know it only as a concert venue, Red Rocks Park is also an astoundingly diverse environment where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. During the day, visitors can treat themselves to guided tours, hiking, shopping and dining, then stick around for a concert against an incredible backdrop of nature on full display. Think of it as an area where you can see both dinosaur fossils and U2 in proximity to one another.

The venue’s most unique aspect is that it is the world’s only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world, making it a big draw for all sorts of musical acts. Just looking ahead to the next month, the likes of Wilco, Dr. Dog, Alan Jackson, Foster the People and the Beach Boys will all grace the Red Rocks stage.

All of this begs the questions: why haven’t you bought tickets yet, and what could possibly be better on our 10 Things We Love About Colorado?

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #6 – Bolder Boulder

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Bolder Boulder

If the photo above doesn’t give enough of an idea as to why Bolder Boulder makes our list, we’ll expand a little bit.

Started in 1979, Bolder Boulder has become a world-renowned 10-kilometer race that most recently hosted 54,000 racers from all over the globe, and for good reason. The 6.2-mile road race starts in waves (as its popularity has grown significantly over the years), winds through Boulder’s unbeatable scenery and ends with a movie-like stadium finish and Memorial Day celebration. The experience is so impressive that Bolder Boulder was named Runner’s World’s Best 10k Road Race in America.

In a greater sense, Bolder Boulder represents the healthy, active, adventurous spirit of the Colorado lifestyle. In a day and age in which our nation concerns itself with national health, obesity, food politics and sugar regulation, tens of thousands of Coloradans race at altitude on a national holiday. This is the spirit we try to embody at DRY HQ in Seattle, and one we hope we’ll see take hold nationwide.

The scenery, the fanfare, the history and the Colorado spirit collectively make Bolder Boulder one of the 10 Things We Love About Colorado.

10 Things We Love About Colorado | #7 – New Belgium Brewing

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

New Belgium Brewing

DRY Soda got its start in a kitchen and has grown into a full-fledged all natural, better for you soda company with the help of amazing fans and partner accounts. That being said, we’re very inspired when other local businesses do things the right way; with New Belgium Brewing, this is absolutely the case. Based in Fort Collins, CO, New Belgium has worked its way to earning status as the third-largest craft brewery and seventh-largest overall brewery in the US. The brewery’s Fat Tire Amber Ale is a well-known and beloved brew celebrated by beer lovers all over the US.

The importance, however, comes in the details.

New Belgium Brewing is employee-owned and therefore places a heavy emphasis on worker wellness; it’s no wonder that it was named Outside Magazine’s Best Place to Work in America 2008. Whether it’s a cruiser bike on your one year anniversary or a free trip to Belgium, this brewery knows how it’s done. Additionally, New Belgium uses many different eco-friendly, energy-saving practices to run its facilities, including sourcing the cleanest energy possible from Fort Collins Utilities or powering part of their production off of the methane byproduct of their water treatment plant.

In all, New Belgium truly embraces the Colorado spirit of doing things well and doing things right. Our bottles are raised to you, New Belgium, and you’re absolutely one of the 10 Things We Love About Colorado.
