    Toast the Season in Boulder

    In food-and-drink-obsessed Boulder, we love any reason to raise a glass. The holidays are a perfect time to visit America’s Foodiest Town! 

    There are 22 breweries, four distilleries, three wineries, two cideries and a meadery in Boulder, each with its own personality. Come get to know them and join us in raising a toast to the season. See our brewery, winery and distillery listings for tasting room hours, tour info and specifics.

    Some fun Boulder brewery, distillery and winery facts to wet your palate:

    Bookcliff Vineyards

    • Redstone Meadery’s Vanilla Beans and Cinnamon Sticks Honey Wine is unique, delicious and will have you kicking up your heels to celebrate winter.
    • Many Boulder breweries produce beers fit for the holiday season, from Asher Brewing's Spice Whirled Amber (with cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, all-spice and pure vanilla) to Sanitas Brewing's Cranberry Blackcurrant Sour to the Pumpkin Marzen from Kettle and Spoke
    • Vapor Distillery has transformed part of their warehouse space into a chic speakeasy, where you can enjoy cocktails using spirits made on site and muse over old prohibition-era Boulder photos. Their Pumpkin Cordial makes a great holiday gift. 
    • Keep an eye out for the food trucks that often park outside Boulder’s breweries. Gourmet eats and fresh brews? Yes, please. Or head to Rayback Collective, Boulder's indoor/outdoor food truck park and grab a beer and bite there.

    Holiday cocktails at the J& L Distilling Company in Boulder

    • An industrial location gives J & L Distilling Company access to a great porch with a Flatirons view (yes, we enjoy patios even in winter here in Boulder!). Plus their sleek bottles of Sno gin make a great holiday gift. (J & L Distilling is temporarily closed.)
    • Want some festive tunes to pair with your drink? BOCO Cider brings in live music every weekend, with fantastic local and regional acts. 
    • Looking for something to shake you out of your winter doldrums? Drag Bingo Night is just the ticket and is happening regularly at Deviant Spirits
