Phantom Canyon Brewing Co.

One of Colorado Springs' older brew pubs is located in a historic three-story building downtown, with a restaurant, pool hall and banquet space. Try a Queen's Blonde Ale or Railyard Ale, or something a little more experimental. Hit happy hour from 3-6 p.m. or after 10 p.m. for $2.75 pints. phantomcanyon.com

 

Tony's Downtown Bar

When you don't want to spend $5 a pint on craft beer but want cheap beer and lots of it, this Tejon Street tavern with a Midwestern vibe in Colorado Springs is the place. With staples such as Pabst Blue Ribbon and Old Style on tap and a menu full of affordable sandwiches, you can have a night out without breaking the bank. tonysdowntownbar.com

 

Falling Rock Tap House

The Denver area has too many great breweries to suggest only one, so instead visit this LoDo tavern known for its wide selection of beers from around the world, with 80-plus on tap. It's only a few blocks from Coors Field and makes a great pre- or post-game stop when the Colorado Rockies play at home during the summer. fallingrocktaphouse.com

 

Elevation Beer Co.

This Salida brewery has only been open since 2012, but it is making a name for itself for a wide variety of beers and oak cask-aged brews that push the envelope. Stop in the brew house - they don't sell food - to relax after a day of hiking fourteeners in the Sawatch Range or rafting the Arkansas River. elevationbeerco.com

 

San Luis Valley Brewing Co.

If you have visited Colorado's majestic San Juan Mountains, you know the longest part of the drive home is through the dusty San Luis Valley. So break up your drive with a rewarding stop at Alamosa's brewery, which has beer with a southwestern flair, such as the Valle Caliente chili beer, and a full menu. slvbrewco.com
