Firefighter Appreciation Week was celebrated in Colorado for the third consecutive year in 2014. Across Colorado, businesses and communities joined together to celebrate and say 'Thank You' to the brave men and women that help protect them 365 days a year.
The Week was culminated in the heart of Denver with the 3rd annual Fight Fire With Beer Festival.

Governor Hickenlooper also announced the winners of the Governor's Cup Beer Competition and talked about his passion for the craft brewing industry. A little fun fact - He was co-founder of Colorado's second craft brewery, the Wynkoop.
