Golden, Colorado is possibly the most adorable town I have seen in a while. Located about a half hour from Denver, Golden was the sight of a big gold rush. It’s surrounded by great mountains and hikes and home to real cowboys. It has a great greenway through town, a river you can float, and a classic main street. It also is home to good beer!
Most notably, Coors is located in Golden. Visitors can take a free tour of the facility if you’re willing to wait in the long line to go. There’s also a ‘locals tour’ which basically gets you free samples.
The first brewery we checked out in town was Golden City Brewing Co, aka the Second Biggest Brewery in Golden!
I tried The Sponge’s House, a pineapple infused beer that was perfect for the hot summer day!
Next, we checked out Mountain Toad Brewing. They had a food truck, a lovely patio that Bear loved wandering and playing in, and more delicious beer. It was a perfect afternoon to spend wandering.
Making your own trip to Golden? Here’s a list of the other breweries in town! See what else I’m drinking on Untappd – even though I am terrible at updating it. *hands over eyes emoji* It’s a cool app that lets you track the beers you drink at bars and breweries, so you can keep tabs on your faves
If I had to move to Colorado, I’d want to live here but I probably couldn’t afford it. Like everything in Colorado, lovely views comes at a high price.
