Flying to CO for family vacation. What beers should I try? I can get some of the bigger CO brands in FL, but availability is poor (Oskar blues, Fort Collins, flying Dog for instance). I will def try those for sure. I know there is limited Russian River distribution, and I plan to try and seek some out. Also Odell, and Firestone walker.

Any other highly recommended breweries and specific brews y'all can recommend?

Thanks!

TD

CO is beervana! O'Dells, Oskar, Avery, Breckenridge, Ft. Collins Brewery, Boulder, Great Divide, Funkwerks, New Belgium, Ska, Tommyknocker, Wynkoop.

If you're in Aurora, Dry Dock is my local favorite, I'd love to meet you for a pint, PM me. Crooked Stave, Prost, and Denver Beer are local but awesome.

I'd plan on taking a few cases home, at least.

Odell's is a must, 90 shillings & easy street wheat, just a couple to mention but all their beers are awesome! Fort Collins brewery! New Belgium Tour is fun! Lots of great beers in Colorado I miss the college days! Go Rams! Sucks that I moved out of Colorado and have to now only enjoy PDX Beers & HB! Life is good!! :-)

It's a family trip so brewery tour is not an option.


Grabbed some st lupulin and rampant so far. Will keep an eye out for the others.

Thanks

We stay in aurora I think on the last night of the trip. Any recommended restaurants? Dry dock is a brewery or a brew pub?

Woodcut series from Odell or Lips of Faith series from New Belg are good limited release options.

Found these at a random small nothing special shop in Durango.. You folks from CO don't know how good you've got it!


I guess if I could buy great beer with a wealth of variety though, I may never have become a homebrewer,

In Utah now for a bit. After a long day of walking, traveling, and some low intensity hiking, settled down for dinner to discover the whole town is dry....
