Food Scene

Drinks & Nightlife

Favorite bar in Golden. Be careful if you are coming up from sea level - alcohol works quick out here. (At altitude, tired, dehydrated? Be careful!)

Largest single plant brewery in the world. Need I say more? Free tours. The long tour finishes with a beer tasting. The "short tour" means you get three free beers, just for showing up.
