Agreed. Also look for Steamworks when you are down there- their Kolsch is a GABF medal winner.

That list covers a lot fo ground as far as the denver metro area. as for good food with great taps...

Hops and Pie
Mile Hi Tap and Burger
Euclid Hall (call in advance it will save you time and frustration)
Alehouse at Amato's
Jonesy's Eat bar


For a cool speakeasy experience: Williams and Graham.

I went to school in Durango for a year. SKA, Steamworks, Durango Brewing co, and Carver Brewing Co are in Durango.

SKA is a must visit. I would also visit Steamworks as their food is really good as well. Durango Brewing co was a bit lack luster. I don't remember much about Carver Brewing co though.

I would suggest the Denver Brews Cruise. For value it cant be beat.

you get:
Breckenridge-
Strange-
and a place called Pint's Pub (Live Cask Ales)

Check out Wit's End Brewery- I think the guy is doing single barrel brews. I went, admittedly I was a wee tipsy at the time but remember the beer being pretty darn good.
