Smuggler Mine Tour w/ Elk Mountain Expeditions

We took the entire (minus 1) brewery team to Smuggler Mine, Aspen’s and the United State’s top producing silver mine for a fun team outing with a little local history built in.  Our friends at Elk Mountain Expeditions, yes the same crew that has tossed countless ABC employees into the Roaring Fork River on an annual basis, now offers a “Mine & Dine” adventure catered by the world famous Hickory House Ribs.  In the late 1800’s Aspen was a silver mining town with a population of over 20,000 people.  The largest silver nugget ever mined came out of Smuggler Mine.  Aspen’s miners drank the equivalent of nearly 20 barrels of beer per day.  All fun facts our team learned while touring the mine, drinking beers and looking out over Aspen.  #Drinkintheview
