Advice from all those who live in Boulder,Co
 
So my brother and I are road tripping to Boulder to visit friends at the University for spring break. Me being the craft beer lover that I am I want to spend my week enjoying the local beer scene. I would love some suggestions as to what breweries and beers are your favorite beers from the area. Thanks Josh

Last time I was there I went to Coors (gotta go just to see the sheer size of the place.)

Also went to New Belgium and Odell Brewery. Both are really cool and very close to each other. Got to try the New Belgium IPA before it was released to the public which was sweet.

Boulder brewing is there as well as Twisted Pine.

Those are in Ft. Collins. Coors is in Golden, which is like 45-60 min away from Boulder

Thanks I will definitely have to check out Avery and as for Coors it will be a nice comparison to AB, I live in St. Louis and have gone on the tour at least five times.

Avery and Mountain Sun are my favorites in the boulder area for breweries. If you can get to Longmont (25 minutes) there is Oskar Blues and Lefthand.

For beer bars in Boulder, The West End Tavern has about 40 taps and a pretty decent bottle selection. Backcountry Pizza just opened and has 50 taps, but I haven't been yet, so I'm not sure what sort of selection they carry. Reuben's Bistro has a pretty good selection of Belgian beers too. If you can make it down to Denver, make sure to go to Great Divide Brewing Co. and the Falling Rock Tap House, both are awesome.

No love yet for Upslope - definitely a fun one to visit.

I did a bike to brewery tour last fall, these were on the route:
Southern Sun - brewpub (also have a location on Pearl St - Mt. Sun)
Avery
Twisted Pine
Upslope
Boulder Beer
Asher (organic)
Redstone Meadery (if you like mead)

Mt Sun/So. Sun and Avery are definite must sees. Upslope and Twisted Pine, both first time visits for me, really impressed me.

If you want to drive:
Oskar Blues
Lefthand
New Belgium
Odell's
Wynkoop
Great Divide

Enjoy

+1 for Twisted Pine, they always have something totally off the wall on tap.
