    East Coaster (from NJ) heading to Denver the last week in October for a business trip. I land Monday afternoon, working most of the day Tuesday and then flying out first thing Wednesday. Either way, I hope to have an opportunity or two to hit a few local breweries while I'm out there.

    For those who live there or have visited, if you had 2 or 3 places to recommend to an out-of-towner as ones that they absolutely should go to, what would they be?

    If you can only hit two or three places then Falling Rock, Great Divide(Barrel Bar) and Crooked Stave. If you have a little more time then since they are close Black Shirt and Epic and perhaps River North but they may be moving when you are here. You could really do this in two hours if you just got a beer or two at each place and didn't fuck around too much(good luck doing that). There are a lot of smaller places doing great things by these are real close to one another(CS and GD are across the street from each other) so I would do that. If you have time I think the new Avery place is pretty bad ass and then since you are there OB's Tasty Weasel is close by so hit that then well since you are close Left Hand is right there and then Ft Collins isnt that far...things can get out of hand quickly here.

    Bumping this as I am in Denver Sunday through Wednesday for work. I am hoping to find a good craft beer bar that will have the Stanley Cup playoff game on this Sunday. Any suggestions? Would Freshcraft or Falling Rock fit the bill?

    Falling rock will be your best bet.
    Beer battered mushrooms are good.

    Falling Rock worked out perfect. I really enjoyed Juicy Banger and Superpower, some really nice IPAs coming out of Denver. The beer battered mushrooms were great too. Thanks again.

    I'm staying at the Hyatt Regency in Denver near the convention center, any good bottle shops that may have whiskey store picks or good craft beer I can't land in Chicago? No car this time around, but I'm motivated and know how to work Uber. Thanks in advance!
