Found in beer distributors and bars all across the country, the Great Divide Brewing Company has been making craft beers since 1994. There are four locations in Denver, one in the Ballpark District, one at the airport, one on 35th Street, and one in Castle Rock. All are open daily with loads of options on draft as well as bottles to take home. Beers currently on tap range from a strawberry rhubarb sour to a double IPA. Try the Zooski Lager for something classic and easy to drink or taste the Pumpkin Ale to get in the mood for fall.
Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery got its start in 2013 on 20th Street in Denver. Inspired by the city and its dwellers, this brewery strives to craft adventure and excitement into each brew.
