Boulder Beer Company

First opened in an old goat shed by two University of Colorado professors in 1979, the Boulder Beer Company is the oldest microbrewery in Colorado. At their Pub -- a full-service restaurant -- you can choose from a long list of menu items accompanied by suggested beer pairings. Try the half-pound Buff burger (all natural; no hormones or antibiotics) with a pint of Buffalo Gold, or the veggie burrito with a dry-hopped Hazed and Infused. Even the appetizers here come with recommendations: Buffalo wings with the Flashback India Brown Ale? How 'bout the sampler plate with -- you guessed it -- the Boulder Beer sampler? One word of warning: The Pub closes early (generally around 10 p.m.).
