Nestled in Idaho Springs, less than half an hour from Denver, Tommyknocker Brewery and Pub is going on 25 years and boasts an ornery streak that can only come from watching, with a mix of business pleasure and nativist horror, as the traffic builds over the years. Still, Tommyknocker welcomes all comers and delights all kinds, from locals and tourists to tired skiers and kayakers in need of a cold one. While the brewpub's mainstays, such as its signature Maple Nut Brown Ale, are available in stores far and wide, some of its best offerings -- Pick Axe Pale Ale, Oaked Butt Head Bocker Stout and Black Powder Stout -- can only be enjoyed on site or in a growler to go. Besides beer, the specialty here is bison: burgers, chili and even a pulled-buffalo sandwich, smoked for 24 hours and served with a side of Big B's sauce. And if you need one for the road, try the homemade root beer, made with honey.
