Hopdoddy Burger Bar
Open last fall, Hopdoddy is a welcome addition to the parade route this year. There are 12 Colorado beers on tap and two outdoor taps will be open during the parade. The doors (and patio) open at 11 a.m.
Wynkoop Brewing Co.
Wynkoop Brewing Company’s patio is a longtime favorite of parade goers. It will be open at 8:30 a.m., but if you want to snag a seat outside, you’d better get there early!
With 30 Colorado beers on tap, it should be no problem finding a tasty beverage at Terminal Bar starting at 10 a.m.
Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill
About half a block past the parade route, Thirsty Lion is a great place to pop into for a quick beer before heading back out into the action. Or snag a table on the patio and stay a while. 52 craft & import taps is enough to keep any beer drinker happy. The bar will be open at 9 a.m.
Falling Rock Tap House
With some 75 craft beers on tap, there’s something for everyone at Falling Rock. The patio is always lively during the parade. Doors will be open at 8:30 a.m. for those eager to get an early start.
Blue Moon Brewery at The Sandlot
The Sandlot will be pouring Blue Moon's Belgian White plus several of their small-batch beers starting at 9 a.m.
The doors will open at 9 a.m. with 32 taps ready for guests. About 10 of these are brews made by Breckenridge Brewery and the rest guest beers also brewed in Colorado.
River North Brewery
For Belgian beer lovers, River North Brewery is the place to be. Sit back and relax with a freshly brewed beer while taking it all in. The doors will open at 9:30 on Saturday morning.
Spruce Tap House
Another newcomer to the parade route, Spruce Tap House has 20 beers on tap for your drinking pleasure. And, as an added bonus, the bar will open bright and early at 7 a.m.
Though the parade ends a block away, stop by Zephyr on your way to try out the new Ryerish Red Ale and stay for door prizes and grilling on the patio. The fun starts at 10 a.m.
