COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 11, 2015) – While preparing for Independence Day festivities, look to space to help find the best Colorado spirits.

The 8th Edition Beer, Wine and Spirit Drinker’s Guide to Colorado, published by Motion Pixel Lab, Inc., and recognized by the Space Foundation’s Space Certification program as a Certified Imagination Product, is on shelves now.

The 27-inch by 36-inch full-color map “pintpoints” in full color Colorado’s breweries, brewpubs, wineries, cideries, meaderies, distillers and beverage makers statewide. The guide also includes information on state and national parks, ski areas, fourteeners, historic bars and coupons for more than $300 dollars in free beer and merchandise at 54 locations throughout Colorado.

The map was developed using two kinds of space technology — digital terrain data gathered by Space Shuttle-borne radar was used to create the topo-physical relief map, and global positioning system (GPS) data was used to calculate accurate elevation data for the list of Colorado fourteeners.

The 8th Edition Beer, Wine and Spirit Drinker’s Guide to Colorado is sold at the Space Foundation Discovery Center Store, 4425 Arrowswest Drive, in Colorado Springs. Buy the full guide, map and passport coupon book package for $22, or just the map and passport coupon book for $14. For information about the Discovery Center Store, call the Space Foundation at 719.576.8000.
