It kind of depends on whether you demand your beer & food in one venue, or are willing to accept them separately. We've been on tours of Twisted Pine and Boulder Beer in Boulder, and New Belgium, O'Dells, and Fort Collins Brewery in Fort Collins. Also Breckenridge, up in the eponymous town in Summit Co. All were good tours. Breckenridge and Boulder Beer have restaurants, and we ate good food in the Breckenridge Brewpub.

If I were looking for food in most cases, though, I'd pick the food and let the beer follow along however it worked out. For most stuff like burgers and the usual bar food, I suspect there are lots of good places. If you like game, the best place I've ever been is the Buckhorn Exchange in Denver. Elk, Deer, Bison, Ostrich, Rattlesnake, and others. Or, you can always just get something like a big 'ol steak. Somewhere in a shopping center near Denver, next to a vast Asian market, is a Vietnamese restaurant (shouldn't be hard to find with that description) that has wonderful food.

Here is something to add to the list. I will definitely be checking this out!

Love trying new breweries!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." --Jack Handey

Forgot about Stranahan's Distillery/Rackhouse. Colorado whiskey and awesome chili.
Also - Sweet Action ice cream on Broadway is rockin'!
