TOP 10 MICROBREWERIES IN COLORADO
Colorado is home to the second most breweries of any state in the country (behind only California). Boulder has more craft breweries per capita than any other city in the country. Fort Collins is 3rd in the nation. In short, Colorado has a very strong beer culture. Here are our favorite microbreweries in the great state of Colorado. Very honorable mention to Ska (Durango), Prost (Denver), Aspen Brewing (Aspen), Storm Peak (Steamboat Springs), Pug Ryan's (Dillon), and Tommyknocker (Idaho Springs). Any of those easily could have been included on this list.
