Ramen is Golden! Owners Noah and Brandon (yes, of Abeja) operate this delish hipster locale! Light and bright - it's fun to sit at the bar and have dim sum with Noah's notoriously unique cocktail of the day/week. Easy social distanced tables inside or enjoy the outside street tables in front/on 12th Street behind The Rose.

Your neighbor to the East runs the local and (not so local) New Terrain - the most frequented and popular Brewery in Metro Denver. Wait time for a table can be an hour at peak times (4pm-6pm) so get there early, or late to avoid the lines or meet the locals with their dogs in tow while waiting on the lawn out front. Near the Golden Railroad Museum off 10th street a 5 mile drive to the east of downtown. Park on the street and avoid the parking lot - or better yet - bike to the brewery like the locals do!

Out of the way brewery - a hidden gem and a one-of-a-kind gluten-free brewery! Who knew gluten-free could taste so good? Karen Hertz did! Big Henry's Hazy IPA is my favorite and I don't miss the gluten, esp. in their experimental beers and ciders.
