After spending a couple days in downtown Denver, we ventured north for a night in Boulder. If you’re into nature, you’ll love Boulder. There were plentiful hiking options and beautiful mountain scenery. In terms of beer, I didn’t love the city as much as Denver though. However it’s a short drive and worth the trip even if you just visit the first few I list- my favorites! Oh, and the churro waffle sundae I had from Fior Gelato. A MUST!
Modern space, cool vibes, juicy beer! We liked basically everything we had on tap at Odd13 and it was one of our favorites of the entire trip.
Another top brewery on the trip! While I was probably swayed by the garage door and planks (per usual), the beer stacked up to some of the best in Denver.
Avery has one of those bigger “campus” type feels. They had a large outdoor area and an adjoining taproom/bar area with food. There’s another space upstairs where they have a gift shop (with awesome hop hats) and offer self-guided tours to get a behind the scenes look. We both got one of course- then proceeded to take a lot of selfies on the tour.
After hitting up these three, I’d recommend the others (in this order) if you have additional time:
- VisionQuest Brewery
- Sanitas Brewing
- Oskar Blues Brewery
- Left Hand Brewing
- Twisted Pine
- FATE Brewing
- West Flanders Brewing Co
Have a blast!
