Colorado Heritage Magazine - Spring 2019

In conjunction with the History Colorado Center exhibit Beer Here! Brewing the New West, this issue offers more about Colorado’s brewing evolutions and revolutions. From the first mining camps to today’s booming cities, the history of beer illuminates our experiences as Coloradans. Also in this issue, Louise Sneed Hill ruled over Gilded Age Denver society for four decades with Southern charm and a passion for success. And, 2020 marks a hundred years since the Nineteenth Amendment; read about the Women’s Vote Centennial Commission and Colorado’s own—and earlier—suffrage legacy.
