Taps to Tap in Denver

Here is a guide to some of the best taps and craft brews in the Denver area.  We always love a good pint and wanted to share this with you.
Alehouse at Amato’s – You can find Alehouse at Amato’s in the Lower Highland area.  Inside they pay tribute to Colorado craft brewing with 42 beers on tap, starting with a delicious dozen from the beer-mad scientists at Breckenridge Brewery. But theirs is a big-picture focus: they showcase 25 beers from their favorite Colorado comrades, including inventions from their allies at Wynkoop Brewing. The beer lineup changes daily, so stop in often to try the Colorado craft industry’s latest and greatest.  As the weather is changing enjoy their beautiful rooftop and the view.
Falling Rock Tap House – There is no question Falling Rock has arguably the most extensive and unique tap wall in Colorado. Located in the Northwest/Capitol Hill area it is no wonder they are considered by most brewers the unofficial headquarters of the Great American Beer Fest. If you love beer, you’ll fall head over heels for Falling Rock; you just won’t find a wider selection of the finest brews in Colorado.
– 80+ beers on their taps
– 130+ bottled beers in their coolers
– Specialty selections such as: Mead, Cider and Cask Beers
– Gluten free collection in bottles and on tap
Freshcraft –Located in the Northwest/Capitol Hill section Freshcraft offers 24 rotating taps for the beer drinkers delight.  Freshcraft is a great place for a quick lunch, a relaxing dinner, or something to fill you up after a night on the town. They make nearly all of their food from scratch using fresh ingredients and you can taste it. Their kitchen stays open late, serving a great menu well past the regular dinner hour. Their huge selection of craft beers have been handpicked for pairing with the food. Of course they’re great to enjoy all on their own as well.
Highland Tap and Burger – With 20 rotating taps and 58 bottles Highland Tap and Burger is a must visit in the Highland area.  Highland Tap even has a “Captain’s List” of rare and unique brews including Firestone Walker XIV Anniversary Ale and The Bruery 5 Golden Rings.  They pride themselves on great selections and a menu to match.  We suggest their HTB Meatball sliders (house made marinara) or their Root Beer pulled pork sandwich.  If seafood is what you want to pair with your pint we suggest the Pilsner battered fish and chips or the blackened shrimp Po Boy.  Happy Hour twice Monday-Saturday from 3:00-6:30 and 10-2 and Sunday late night Happy Hour from 10-2.
Rackhouse PubLocated in the Lakewood area Rackhouse Pub serves 24 Colorado Brews and 5 out of state drafts.  It also serves more than 60 Whiskey options.  They have a weekly “I’d Tap that Night” every Wednesday featuring a new brew.  They serve an eclectic menu from specialty mac n cheese to chili to pizza.  Beer enthusiasts will have no problem pairing their pint with a menu item.  Rackhouse Pub serves a unique “beer cocktail menu” including an Ould Tom Martini (Downslope Ould Tom Gin • Dry Dock Paragon Apricot Blonde • St. Germaine • pineapple juice • grapefruit juice • lemon juiced) and a Whiskey Cider (Leopold Bros Apple Whiskey • Colorado Cider Company Pome Mel rosemary lavender cider • cinnamon) to name a few.  Happy Hour twice a day 7 days a week from 3-6 and 10-12.  Join the Rackhouse Pint Club and drink 200 pints and receive Happy Hour prices for life.
