    Toast the Season in Boulder

    In food-and-drink-obsessed Boulder, we love any reason to gather around the table (or bar) to celebrate. The holidays are a perfect time to visit America’s Foodiest Town! 

    There are 21 breweries, four distilleries, two wineries and two cideries 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.

    Avery Tap Room

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

    • The Barrel is an outdoor beer garden at Twenty Ninth Street mall that serves local beers out of a shipping container on a sprawling patio. Why are we telling you this on a page about places to imbibe during the winter holidays? Their awesome, clear, heated geodesic domes allow you to lounge "outside," even on wintry days. 
    • Park your car and visit two wineries, a brewery and a cidery in one fell swoop. Hop from Settembre Cellars to BookCliff Vineyards for a fun, welcoming tasting experience, on to Upslope Brewing for some tasty brews and finally to BOCO Cider to taste Boulder's newest obsession.

    BRU Handbuilt Ales & Eats

    • Ask about the stories behind BRU’s eye-catching tap handles — made from antique household objects.
    • Redstone Meadery’s Vanilla Beans and Cinnamon Sticks Honey Wine is unique, delicious and will have you kicking up your heels to celebrate winter.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    Boulder cocktails

    • 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.
