Denver's Best Brewpubs

A. Southern Sun
Old-school Boulder: Tie-dye banners, jam-band music, a happy=scruffy crowd, and some of the best beer along the Front Range. Try the "Kind Beer."

Open until 1 a.m.

B. Boulder Beer Company
You'll want to visit this, the first brewpub in the state. It will be host outside - try the Sweaty Betty Blonde, a wheat beer.

Open until 9 p.m.

C. Wynkoop Brewing Company
Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper doesn't own it anymore, but this is where it all started. The 'hood was rundown when Hick opened this pub, in 1988. Now it's booming. If they have it, try the Patty's Chile Beer.

Open until 2 a.m.

D. Breckenridge Blake Street Pub
Liky Wynkoop, this pub is near Coors Field (yes, our ballpark is named after a brewery). But some of the beer made here is also available in six-packs around the state, and these folks take their beer seriously. Try one of their "small batch" series.

Open until 2 a.m.

E. Falling Rock Tap House
Want beer selection? You sure? Head to this LoDo place and you might find yourself a bit overwhelmed. You could go with a Corona, but please. Just don't

Open until 2 a.m.

F. Pint's Pub
You will visit the Denver Art Museum (you had better), and when you're finished, have a home-brewed beer and some fish 'n' chips.

Open until 2 a.m.

G. Oskar Blues Cajun Grill and Brewery
When you head to Rocky Mountain National Park (like the art museum, you'd better), you'll pass through Lyons. Stop here for some excellent microbrews, and take home a six-pack of the good stuff - in cans.
