Beer

The Beer Is Here

Colorado is home to more than 10% of the nation’s craft breweries and home to around 230 breweries in total. Fitting, as legend has it that Denver’s first permanent structure was a saloon.

Whether you’re traveling and looking to see the rave of Colorado beer or you’re a local looking for a new spot to try out, there’s no shortage of options. There exists a formidable and continuously expanding presence of these unique and individual establishments all over the state.

Out of the list below, here are a few of our personal favorites:
