A friend and I went to the mountains of Colorado to check out a few breweries. We didn't pick the best weather day - it was raining and sleeting a little bit but we had a great time.
First stop was the DAM Brewery in Dillon.
We had samples of:
Extra Pale Ale (brought home a growler of this one)
Sweet George's Brown
McLuhr's Irish Stout
Their logo is so cute - 'Get your own DAM beer' - we had to each buy a t-shirt!
Next stop was Breckenridge Brewery in Breckenridge. This place felt more corporate and the service was crappy. In fact, I didn't even take any photos. We had their Belgium Wit.
As we headed back towards home, we hit up the BackCountry Brewery in Frisco. We sampled their Telemark IPA and Peak One Robust Porter. Both were delicious.
Our final stop was Tommy Knocker's Brewery in Idaho Springs. Here we tasted their Cocoa Porter and their Black Powder Stout.
As we drove down the canyon into Golden, CO, we spotted three young Big Horn Sheep.
It was a great day. I hope to do something like this again soon.
