Through the year, we've been tasting food in restaurants new and old, hanging out in Denver's watering holes, taking notes about everywhere that you can find noteworthy edible and drinkable items in this town — and compiling our findings into lists of the best for your easy reference. To make it even easier to find what you're looking for, here's a list of the ten best lists we've put out so far in 2016. And if these don't satisfy you, we'll keep 'em coming. Let us know what you'd like us to explore in the comments section below.
