With more microbreweries per capita than anywhere else in the country, it’s no surprise that Denver’s bar scene is dominated by beer gardens. Conveniently located on Platte Street (to get there from Downtown you’ll cross over the lovely Confluence Park), Denver Beer Company has a big open patio that’s lively without being rowdy, particularly on sunny weekend afternoons. Dogs are allowed, and they usually have a food truck pulled up in case you’d like to snack while you drink. The menu usually has a mix of old standards and seasonals, but we’re partial to their signature Graham Cracker Porter, which is available year-round.
