Some say the Colorado mantra is "work hard, play hard, and drink beer (hard?)," so it's no surprise that plenty of places excel at encouraging that last item. When you want to ensure you're drinking nothing but the finest brews (and if you didn't, why would you live here?) these are the places you need to go.
*Note: brewery tap rooms are great, and you should drink at them, but they were not included in this exercise, which is devoted to bars serving a bunch of fine selections from different breweries.
If you’re going to throw the beverage of choice in your name, you'd better have a list to back it up. While whiskey and patterned sweaters are abundant, the beer list is nothing to mess with. The locals are represented with Renegade, Oskar Blues, Avery, and Bull & Bush’s Release the Hounds cellar-grade bomber, among others. Look for cask selections like Great Divide Yeti aged on cocoa nibs.
