Celebrate your independence on these Colorado brewery patios

Colorado is home to more than 200 breweries making thousands of craft beers for us to enjoy year-round. But summer is arguably the best time to enjoy a delicious craft beer in Colorado – even more so while soaking in the ambience of a brewery patio, whether it's an intimate, backyard-like space or a sprawling beer garden lined with community tables. In anticipation of the upcoming Fourth of July weekend, we've rounded up a list of ten ideal spots for celebrating our independence...and the good life in Colorado. Read all about them in this week's feature, now posted on Cafe Society.
