📍 State reveals preliminary congressional map
On Wednesday, Colorado was the first state to unveil a 2022 preliminary congressional map, which includes a new, eighth congressional district that is tentatively mapped for the northern suburbs of Denver. But don’t get your heart set on this version of the map. Beginning July 9, the congressional commissions will go on a public hearings tour to get community input on the map. [Axios Denver]

🍺 Here’s your chance at free beer for life
Denver Beer Co. is holding an auction for an NFT (or non-fungible token). The floating, spinning, digital coin is titled “Beer For Life,” and whoever wins the auction gets — you guessed it — beer for life. Well, four free beers per day at any Denver Beer Co. taproom for life. The top bid, when I checked last night, was $2,019.35. The auction closes July 7 at 5 p.m. [Craft Brewing Business]

⚾ Everybody’s leaving the Rockies
Following the footsteps of general manager Jeff Bridich and assistant general manager Jon Weil, Zach Wilson (another AGM) resigned earlier this week. Wilson was with the team for 20 seasons, and reasons for his departure are unclear. The search for a permanent replacement will take place after the season ends, leaving the Rockies relatively short-staffed ahead of next month’s MLB trade deadline. [Denver Post]
