About 60% of Colorado’s breweries are concentrated in a 20 mile wide strip of land along the western edge of the Great Plains running north from Colorado Springs through Denver to Fort Collins. These include the 2 large breweries of Molson Coors and Anheuser-Busch, regionals like New Belgium, chain breweries such as Hops and Rock Bottom, as well as over 3 dozen independent brewpubs and microbreweries. Certainly this range of options will have something for every beer lover!
However, just as with the dramatic scenery of the Rocky Mountains and the rich heritage of the ancient inhabitants of the Colorado Plateau, the brewing scene in the western 60% of the state is varied and well worth the trip. Looking at the map, you can see these smaller towns and their breweries can be found from within an hour to 8 hours west of the I-25 metroplexes and from 1 to 2 hours south of Colorado Springs in Pueblo and Trinidad.
So hit a few brewpubs in the big cities and then head for the mountains and plateau!
