I'm heading to a conference for work tomorrow outside of Denver (Littleton, CO to be exact). It seems like they have their own functions for most of the evenings, but assuming I do get away for an evening or two, can anyone recommend a brewpub or good eatery nearby that would have a good selection of local craft beer on tap???

Thanks! :rockin:

Wow, such an open ended question. Where in Littleton (address or major crossroads)? How long will you be here? What are your transportation arrangements?

Sorry! Conference is at the Marriott Denver South (10345 Park Meadows Drive). We will have a car so I could drive, but I'm not gonna be able to convince my coworker to drive too far for beer (he doesn't care to drink). So anywhere close (within a 10-15 min ride) that would be open past 9pm would be best.

We fly back Thursday morning. So I've basically got Saturday night (we land at 6:30 i think) and wednesday night open. Sunday night, Monday night and Tuesday night there are conference events, so I'll be busy till 8 or 9pm I'm guessing.

Cool, closest place that actually brews their own stuff and serves food (bar food) is:
Rock Bottom
9627 East County Line Road, Englewood, CO
http://www.rockbottom.com/south-denver-park-meadows-mall
The beer is pretty much standard fare, but good.
Two Thumbs up for this one.
5 minute drive.

Falling Rock is definitely an awesome place. They have a wall of taps (Taphouse) so if you can imagine it they probably have it on tap. It is in the middle of the Lower Downtown (LODO) area and gets to rocking on the weekends. They don't brew their own stuff, but WOW what a selection.
4 thumbs up for this one.
30 minute drive, but parking is a B***H. You pretty much have to pay to park. However the light rail will take you right to the downtown area.

You will need the "Regional Fare". $10 round trip.

If you make it to the downtown area there are a couple brew pubs to choose from.

Wyncoop.
http://www.wynkoop.com/
1634 18th Street
Denver, CO 80202
4 thumbs up from me.
30 minute drive or light rail.

Great Divide Brewing
http://www.greatdivide.com/
2201 Arapahoe Street, Denver, CO
4 thumbs up.

There are a couple brewery "Tasting Rooms" where they brew, but don't serve food. You can bring your own take out in and drink their stuff.

Elk Mountain is the closest.
http://www.elkmountainbrewing.com/
Ste 104, 18921 East Plaza Drive
Parker, CO 80134-9679
I give three thumbs up for this one.
15 minute drive.

The one I would HIGHLY recommend if you can find the time is:
Dry Dock Brewing Company
http://www.drydockbrewing.com/
15120 E Hampden Ave
Aurora, CO 80014
5 thumbs up for this one.
30 minute drive but well worth it in my opinion.

There are many others, but these are the ones I have been to and can personally recommend.
