Located in Lower Highlands, this neighborhood come-as-you-are alehouse is not strictly speaking a brewery. But it belongs on this list because it's owned and operated by the Breckenridge-Wynkoop group, a collaboration of two of Colorado's oldest breweries. At any given time there are 42 beers on tap, including several from the parent company. But taps also pour a couple dozen other Colorado craft brews, with some 10 to 20 beers rotated every week. From just one table or barstool at the Ale House, beer lovers can try the latest and greatest from a slew of Colorado's amazing, prolific craft brewers. The rooftop patio has one of the best Denver city views around--it's well worth working to get a spot. The full menu, decidedly upscale from traditional pub fare, showcases Colorado purveyors including cheese makers, bakers, farmers, coffee roasters and more. Vegetarians and healthy-choicers are covered, too.
