Rocky Mountain Food Tours

Tour our great state and enjoy some tasty brews

We branched out from our home city of Colorado Springs to tour the state in search of some stellar Colorado breweries. Not only do these breweries have some tasty brews, but they also offer tours of their facility for those who want a behind the scenes look.

 

1. Great Divide Brewing Company (Denver, CO)

Located in Denver, Colorado, this nearly 24-year-old brewing company was started by a man with a dream to brew good beer. Eventually, his dream turned into one of America’s most decorated breweries. Great Divide’s beer ranges from nitro stouts to double IPAs, and they always feature a few unique seasonal beers as well. Their original brewery, called The Ballpark, is open for daily visits, while their bar, Rino: Barrel Bar, is only a mile down the road. They offer tours and private party rooms. Dedicated to leaving a smaller footprint, this brewery gives back by making sure their packing is recyclable while also recycling their glass and cardboard in-house.

 

2. Avery Brewing Company (Boulder, CO)

For almost 25 years, Avery Brewing Company has stood above most with their ingenuity and sense of community. They strive to create a personal experience for each beer drinker. They offer guided tours of the brewery and restaurant, at which they allow lunch and dinner reservations. Avery offers a whopping 30 different kinds of beer, including their famous Rumpkin, a pumpkin ale aged in rum barrels, and Joe’s Pils, a hoppy pilsner with German hops.

 

3. Odell Brewing Company (Fort Collins, CO)

Rated one of the best breweries in Colorado, Odell Brewing Co. has a beer for every fan out there. Their brewery is open to scheduled tours, while their taproom hosts events often and is open daily. On their website, they offer a “mood pairing” quiz that asks nine questions including which celebrity you’re channeling as well as what type of weather you like. Eventually, it suggests one of their unique beers to match your mood. Their unique beer selection is only offered in Colorado. Odell also encourages their employees to experiment and test their way to new beer horizons. This allows ingenuity to present itself in new flavors and unique tastes, making each visit better than before.

 

4. Dry Dock Brewing Company (Aurora, CO)

Its rare pairings make Dry Dock Brewing stand out. Tours of the brewery are available if pre-scheduled, while their two taprooms, North Dock and South Dock, have events. South Dock, though, holds the Brew Hut. The Brew Hut offers home brewing kits and classes to teach people how to brew different kinds of beer, and their online store can send these products right to your door. After being the first brewery to open in Aurora, Colorado over a decade ago, the Brew Hut expanded into Dry Dock, as we know it today. They have won award after award and continue to grow, impacting their community and encouraging others to brew.

 

5. Left Hand Brewing Company (Longmont, CO)

Beginning in 1993 in Longmont, Colorado, Left Hand Brewing worked from the bottom up. Sold throughout the United States, their beer serves up a balanced palate. Their taproom is open daily, and plenty of days you’ll find food trucks to pair a bite with your pint. The brewery is open daily and their tasting room offers one-hour tours. They offer a variety of merchandise, both in store and online. As their 25th anniversary continues this year, events and brand beer will be released. To add some fun to your visit, they have a Sticker Sighting hashtag involving a sticker of their logo and a selfie. Make sure to snap one if you go!

 

Check out these breweries and more throughout our great state!
