It’s that time of year again, the previously semi-mysterious now highly ubiquitous “holiday” of 4/20. While natives flock to their favorite spots to celebrate and neophytes venture out to discover new places, there is always room to revisit a favorite classic or be surprised by something different.

From coffee shops brewing CBD-infused cups and breweries pouring hemp IPAs to sushi and joint-rolling classes and staycation bud and breakfasts, Colorado has it all. Here are nine food and drink-driven hot spots for 4/20 adventurers looking to eat, drink, and indulge in all of Colorado’s legal cannabis goodness.

A big Colorado brewery is now dabbling in the hops and hemp arena. New Belgium recently introduced their “Hemperor HPA” as a year-round offering. While this IPA does not contain any THC or CBD, its essence and flavors are derived from the aromas and tastes of hemp, which the New Belgium team says delivers that “certain something.”

Sweet Grass Kitchen is the definition of scratch baking, cultivating every step of their cannabis-infused edibles — from batters and batches down to the cannabis which is grown in-house by a dedicated team. Cookies, “buttermelts,” brownie bites, cupcakes, and single-serve pies get that added something from the homemade “pure THC distillate” and “slow-simmered, triple-strained, full-flower cannabutter” which are blended into all their batters. Find their goodies at multiple dispensaries, including Denver Recreational.

Nothing hits better than unwinding after a long day with a nice cold beer, but this is Colorado, and sometimes cannabis get thrown into the mix as well. This Aurora brewery was one of the first to infuse beer with industrial hemp-containing cannabinoids, resulting in the creation of George Washington IPA. Best enjoyed cold, on tap at the bar with some delicious brewery munchies afterward.
