Colorado in the fall means lots of fun to be had, especially now that we have all these “cool” breweries all over the state.

Pumpkins and beer, beer trollies, and Halloween parties.

Leaves are changing and fall begins with pumpkin painting parties like the one I attended this last weekend.

We met at one of the finest breweries in town, picked out our pumpkin and grabbed a brew.

After some family-friendly fun, pumpkin beer, and actually having a very productive afternoon at getting my pumpkins done for the holiday it was clear that Colorado has become so clever with their breweries.

It made me think about how clever Colorado has come to be, and how many fly breweries we really have.

If you like having a good beer and want an enjoyable atmosphere there are plenty to choose from, but here are 10 you most definitely won’t be disappointed in:

  • 1

    Ale House

    Do the “Hoppy Dance,” there are four of these wonderful places in the state. If you’re craving a Breckenridge brew, but are thinking it’s too far to go all the way to Breckenridge, don’t worry the Ale House has got you. Magnificent food and drinks.

    Mother Tucker’s Brewery

    Hometown feel, small, but mighty. Mother Tucker’s holiday brews are superb. Smooth taste that is absolutely fab.

    Denver Beer Co.

    Denver Beer Co. is all about keeping the earth clean and being involved with the community. Denver Beer Co. has come alongside environmental learning for kids as their 2018 non-profit partner. So cool to see them give back and be involved.

    Left Hand Brewery Co.

    Left Hand is just rad. It not only represents the unique ways of Colorado's "cool culture"  with their cool labels but the beers are tremendous. Definitely a favorite.
