Lots of good suggestions. Here are a few more of my favorites. Wynkoop, Upslope, river north, steamworks, boulder beer, Oskar blues. Some of these might be pretty hard to get bottles at the liquor store and a few of them I know are distributed outside Colorado but maybe not to your neck of the woods.

They bottle and distribute in house but they are really proud of their product and charge accordingly. If you are up for that and they have bottles available, the merle is awesome and if they still have bottles, they did a collaboration brew with black fox brewing for 12/21 called little death ride that was quite unique and in my opinion worth the bottle price.

If you want to blow 25 bucks on an imperial ipa that's been sitting for months out on the shelves, got to Hazel's in Boulder. I guess they're following the Mikkeller pricing model on that beer.

Ah, I think I misread your original post and that you were looking for beers for him to try. So, I should have said if YOU like funky and/or sour beers, have him pick up some Crooked Stave.

Mountain Standard might be my favorite beer. I have to haul it to Chicago from Minneapolis.

Upslope IPA for sure. If he's traveling in such a way that he can bring back a growler (or two), Strange Brewing Company is my favorite in Colorado. Last I knew, they still weren't bottling though.

While not a beer, you can only get Stranahan's whiskey in CO. I took a tour of the distillery while in Denver. Man, it is fantastic. Kind of a hybrid of scotch and bourbon. I wish I had more.

If you are talking Steamworks in Durango there are much better choices like Ska (Pinstripe) or Carvers (Old Oak Amber).

TS where in Colorado is he going?

I do agree that ska is better than steamworks but it had already been mentioned before my post. Carvers, I know the name but don't think I have ever had any of their beer and I am very seldom in Durango.
