Fresh for 07: Colorado Beer Spots

The Yacht Club- Wolcott- Just off the road west of Vail is a small bar in the even smaller town of Wolcott. Surprisingly, the Yacht Club is a nice place inside, and their outdoor patio is massive. A stop for bicyclists, bikers, tourists, golfers, and passer thrus make this a great place to duck into for a cold one.

The Gold Pan Bar- Breckenridge- The Gold Pan bills itself as the oldest continuously operating bar in the state. By the looks of it when you walk in, they’re not kidding. This place is rustic old school, like 1800s old school. Creaky wood floors, an ancient bar, and jam packed on ski season weekends.

Sunpies- Steamboat- Grab a Red Stripe and check out this venerable hangout right on the banks of the Yampa River. The actual building isn’t much bigger than your living room, but the 5000 sf “back yard” lets you pull up a lawn chair, a table, or even an old stump and sip on your beer as the Yampa carries tubers down the river. This is a truly Colorado bar with a Cajun feel.

Dark Horse- Boulder- The Dark Horse is where random junk went to live their remaining days. This place would make Fred Sanford jealous. Grab a Coors Light pre or post CU games and a famous Jiffy Burger (as in peanut butter on your burger) and check the eclectic Boulder crowd.

Clancy’s Irish Pub- Wheat Ridge- This inner suburban bar is neatly tucked into a strip mall, but the interior harkens back to a true school Irish pub. They also include a deli in the bar and famous fish and chips. The sausage sandwich is just massive and there’s always a countdown to the next St Patrick’s Day.

Doc Hollidays/The Springs- Glenwood Springs- You can move between these two adjacent bars in Downtown Glenwood as easily as the employees do. Doc’s, named after the infamous outlaw who is buried in Glenwood, features the original bar and the famous neon gunslinger sign. Creep next door to shoot some pool, eat some typical bar food, or muse with the locals.

Kermit’s Road House- bottom of Floyd Hill- This post skiing stop has a famous reputation for their chili, a stop for bikers, and tacked on dollar bills on the walls. The perfect cure for your weekend hangover, the chili is something they’ll even put in a jar and let you take some home.

Rocky Flats Lounge- in between Boulder and Golden- This is a Midwest bar smack dab on the foot of the foothills. Don’t mind the location outside the old nuclear trigger plant that was reportedly a payroll office. Fish frys, Packer gear abound, pickled eggs and Slim Jims behind the bar, and smooth Leinenkugels make this a must stop on your journey between Golden and Boulder.

Oskar Blues- Lyons- After a lazy stroll down Lyons’ street, a poke into Oskar Blues is a must. They brew their own craft, including Pale Ale and Old Chub, and you can munch down some bar food. Live music from time to time and the scenic location nestled in the quaint hamlet make this a fun place to kick back.
***All these spots are best enjoyed with a cold smoooooooooth Coors Light or beer of choice. Better enjoyed with your close friends shooting the shit, telling tales, and ripping eachother. Add some family and times you'll remember. For the Commish, all are best enjoyed with his beautiful wife, his partner in not only life but in his travels throughout God's Country who makes every minute even more enjoyable.
Happy New Year to all!
