Though Black Bottle Brewery hosts guest drafts on its lengthy line of taps, its own creations are immediately recognizable by the matte black bottles that serve as handles. These beers bear names matching the oddball humor of their creators, such as the "Mexican Hipster," an IPA aged in tequila barrels, and the "Social Insecurity," a low-alcohol Belgian session ale. The brewers may be seen tending to the fermenters in fake mustaches and Batman briefs, but their craft is entirely serious, extending to the use of a true copper kettle and locally sourced ingredients. The brewpub's menu shows off a similar level of artistry, from the savory flavors of a meat and cheese plate to the pure efficiency of a fresh-shucked oyster immersed in a shot of the house's beer.

True to its name, Feisty Spirits' logo is a winking specter. This image emblazons every barrel of the distillery's aged whiskey, its winking visage hinting at the mischief and wonder inside. For there's a sense of playful experimentation that goes into crafting the flavor profile for each drink. The flagship bourbon, for example, is subtly nutty and earthy, while the cinnamon whiskey uses only a dash of the aromatic spice, which makes for a sweet finish and prevents you from roaring flames after every sip. Guests can see how these creations are made from the tasting room, where a window peers right into the distilling area. Here, ingredients boil and condense in a large, shining still.

To raise funds for youth ice hockey leagues in northern Colorado, NCYH Power Play celebrates another great American pastime: running. Hosted at the NoCo Ice Center, the third-annual USA Track & Field-sanctioned event lets loose runners of all ages and ability levels in the 5- and 10-kilometer distances. Launching from the starting line early in the morning, racers beat a path through areas such as the Highland Meadows neighborhood, Highland Meadows Golf Course, and the backyard of the local high school's beleaguered principal. Back at NoCo Ice Center, a beer garden welcomes returning runners with chilled brews, water, and snacks.
