Denver Brewery Tastings

Earlier in August we headed west to Denver for a friends wedding. We arrived mid-day Thursday which gave us plenty of time to take in the Rockies game and all-day Friday to explore the city. Of course in such a great beer town like Denver we made sure to hit up handful of local brew pubs.

Thursday after the baseball game we walked a few blocks down to Wynkoop Brewing Co. for a late night snack and a few craft brews. They had a wide selection on tap of their beers and a few guest taps as well.

Having all day Friday proved to be good planning on our part. A group of 5 of us headed out to explore the city and take in a few tastings at the brew pubs. First stop was the Great Divide Brewing Company

They had a pretty sweet set-up with 20 taps available for tastings and even a short 20-30 minute behind the scenes tour if you wanted. We stuck to the beer, as I have been on a handful of tours and feel that they are mostly the same. We were able to check out the facilities from the windows inside the tasting room. Don't worry the 5 of us shared those samples!

The next and last stop was Breckenridge Brewery. This was the public house right down by Coors Field, a restaurant and not a brewery/tasting room. They had a handful of there beers on tap and a bunch of guest taps. I was a little dissapointed in the small sample size of their beers, but I was able to get a Small Batch 471 on draft.

Cheers and Happy Drinking!
