FROM AP MEMBERS:
CRAFT BEER OUTLOOK
DENVER — After years of double and triple digit growth, craft beer is slowing, weighed down by intense competition and even systemic changes to Colorado’s beer market. There are more than 300 breweries now in Colorado. Competition to be the cold one you reach for is coming from both the biggest and smallest breweries. Craft beer owns the market here and Bart Watson, an economist at the Brewers Association, said we “may be reaching that point of a mature marketplace where it’s more difficult to grow the overall share.” By Ben Markus, Colorado Public Radio.
FUNERAL HOME MYSTERY
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Families involved in the Sunset Mesa funeral home case hoped to answer at least one question.

By Erin McIntyre, The Daily Sentinel.
DENVER — When 23-year-old Curt Baker had two buddies visiting from Arkansas over to his new Denver digs last week, he knew there was one spot everyone had to check out: the Denver Central Library. “I’ve only lived here about a month, but I love the connections and public resources available here at the library,” Baker said Friday afternoon at the public library’s downtown location. “We all really like libraries, so I thought I’d show my friends while we explore the city.” By Elizabeth Hernandez, The Denver Post.
