Denver's five best very late-night meals near the Great American Beer Fest

Inside the Colorado Convention Center, you're limited to concessions and pretzel necklaces, and while food trucks are a welcome addition to this year's festivities, they'll only be on location until 10 p.m. -- which is also when each session ends.

If you stumble out of the GABF looking for a spot where you can line your stomach to prepare it for more drinking, here are the five best late-night menus in the vicinity:

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
