Our Suggested Breweries
Avery Brewing, Boulder: Named one of the country's top 15 craft beer breweries by USA TODAY, this 20-year old company, which began as a humble home-brewing experiment, now churns out small-batch beers that have garnered a cult-like following, including the Out of Bounds Stout, the heavy-hitting 10.4% Maharaja, and the perennial favorite, Avery IPA.
MillerCoors Brewery, Golden: It’s hard to pass up a chance to visit the country's single largest brewery, especially when it’s free. A 30-minute, self-guided tour of this 130-year old titan offers a glimpse into the malting, brewing, and packaging process, as well as the history of the company through artifacts, such as antique beer cans and old neon signs.
Oskar Blues Brewery, Denver: The self-declared leader in the canned beer revolution, Oskar has won its share of awards over the years, but it hasn’t let fame go to its head. A visit to the company’s brewery and tasting room called Tasty Weasel feels more like a summer block party with skeeball, free peanuts, live music, and hearty samples of their flagship beer, Dales Pale Ale.
Great Divide Brewing Co., LoDo District: Brian Dunn spent five years sampling drinks in developing countries before opening Great Divide in downtown Denver. He wanted his beer to be “distinctly Denver” with international flair. In 2010, Beer Advocate ranked Great Divide 7th in its list of the “All-Time Top Breweries on Planet Earth.” During a tour of the facility, you can taste world-famous creations such as Yeti Imperial Stout, and the classic Denver Pale Ale. The brewery allows food trucks to park outside, so it’s a good place to grab a quick, cheap lunch.
