The Tasty Weasel aka Oskar Blues tasting room. This was a cool space with open windows on the far end. We sat down at a nice bar that stretched a good 30 feet and was able to enjoy beer while talking with the bartenders. They also have a nice swag area.
Cool recognition of Coors Banquet outside the entrance to the tasting room and gift shop.
I can only assume this is the Rocky Mountain stream where they get their water. Their beer may suck, but the location is great.
The behemoth that is Coors. If you don’t want to wait a long time for a tour and just want to drink, tell them at the tour gate. They’ll give you a pass to go straight to the tasting room and gift shop.
Inside the Funkwerks tasting room. Very small spot, but not very crowded at the time, so quick to get beer. We had a decent cheese plate to go with our beer. A small patio, but we didn’t try it out.
Some of the barrels Funkwerks uses in their brewing process. Small place, but still nice to have this window into the brewery.
Odell has a cool tasting room area that is even larger than New Belgium’s. This room was nice, but the best part was the expansive patio with some nice rock landscaping.
The New Belgium tasting room. It was a cool, rather large space, but very crowded. No tours, but you could take a mini-one yourself.
The room where the magic of the New Belgium sour program takes place. I’ve never seen more barrels used for creating sour beer.
Inside the Coors tasting room. Nothing special, but you do get three free tasters. Tables to enjoy the beer and some snack machines.
Couldn’t resist taking a photo of this classic 80s advertisement. The sad thing is those damn shorts are making a comeback.
