Denver: Booze

Denver: Booze

While Boulderites sip lavender-infused cocktails, we’re drinking microbeers that make us the Belgium of the West. Besides having 24 indie breweries and 5 cicerones (beer experts), including Ryan Conklin at Euclid Hall (pictured), Denver hosts the yearly Great American Beer Festival. We have our own award-winning mixologists too, like Sean Kenyon at the Squeaky Bean. They pour Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey—distilled where? Denver.

Score: 9
