Boulder: Booze

Boulder: Booze

We have more Master Sommeliers per capita than any other major U.S. city—and 5 of Colorado’s 10. And beer? There are 9 brewpubs and microbreweries, notably Avery Brewing. Cocktails? Mark Stoddard of the Bitter Bar (pictured) was on the gold-medal team at last year’s Cocktail World Cup in New Zealand. And we never turn down Evan Faber’s mix-and-match cocktails at Salt bistro.

Score: 8
