4. Burly Brewing Company

Located in Castle Rock, Burly Brewing Company is well worth the drive. Boasting 24 taps of in-house craft beers like the Burlylocks Blond Ale and Digging It IPA, this brewery also features trivia, live music, and rotating food trucks. Oh, and be sure to check out their bearded merch.

8. Westminster Brewing Company

For a classic and cozy neighborhood brewery experience, check out Westminster Brewing Company. Reviewers rave this spot is perfect for catching a game on TV, playing trivia, or eating at one of their food trucks. As for the brews, peeps go mutts over the peach-infused Fuzz Face and pucker up for their Veruca Sour.

9. Welcome Home Brewery

Local humans love Parker’s Welcome Home Brewery for its snug as a Pug atmosphere, rotating food truck schedule, tasty brews, and kombucha on tap. And local dogs love the pup-centric events, like Halloween trick-or-treating and pictures with Santa Paws. We won’t tell if you sneak Spot some popcorn from the old-fashioned, self-serve machine.

10. Rails End Beer Company

Rails End Beer Company is ready to greet you with easy drinkers, hop-heavy pours, or some malty stouts after you and your pup’s journey through nearby Broomfield Commons Dog Park or Big Dry Creek Dog Park. While you kick back with a cold one, your dog’ll be chomping on free treats and pawrusing the Rails End collars and leashes.

11. Joyride Brewing

Roll the windows down and take a joyride with your pup over to Edgewater’s Joyride Brewing. Like its name suggests, everything about the taproom screams fun—from its punchy green paint and creatively-named drafts to its obsession with canine customers. Dog treats are always on tap, and branded leashes, collars, water bowls, and chew toys are in the shop. A few brews and you’ll be stickin’ your head out the window with the best of ‘em.

12. Living the Dream Brewing Company

Great people, great beer, and great times is the motto of the 2014-established brewery, Living the Dream. Combining Coloradans’ active, outdoor lifestyles with craft beer, flavors like Powder Run Vanilla Cream Ale and Rail Bender are transposed on skis above the bar.

13. Lone Tree Brewing Co.

Brews, board games, bow-wows, it’s all here at Lone Tree Brewing Co., a small-batch craft taproom serving up styles like peach pale ale, Mexican lager, and red ale. A water station ensures your pup stays hydrated, too, and perhaps you can share a bite from the rotating lineup of food trucks parked outside.

14. Odyssey Beerwerks

What started as a ’90s home-brewing hobby grew into a full-fledged business in 2013 (further proof you should keep financing your pupper’s side hustle). Pull up a chair for spunky sips, then sit back while your pooch models in dog portrait sessions the Arvada brewery Odyssey Beerwerks frequently hosts with professional photogs. Afterwards, she can unwind with a complimentary water bowl and treats.

15. 3 Freaks Brewery

Tail-wagging names like Yoga Pants IPA, Scuba Rick’s Magic Elixer, and Unicorn Fart (slightly better than a dog toot?) dominate the menu at 3 Freaks Brewery in Highlands Ranch. While you’re getting your freak on, your pup can enjoy a tour of the taproom hosted by Brewer the Boxer, plenty of water bowls and treats, and a dog bed for that post-buzz crash.

16. Discovery Tap House

Discovery Tap House caters to a wide range of customers with 20-plus taps doling out brews from around the state, but it also goes out of its way to include its four-legged patrons—think dog costume contests, puppy adoption events, and happy hour deals on holidays like National Dress Your Pet Day (or as we like to call it, “An Average Wednesday”).

17. Grist Brewing Co.

Your dog can join the pack of Grist Growlerz at Grist’s Brewing Co three-locations, but paws up: If Fido tries to sneak a sip of your Tragic Hipster IPA or Allied Frenzy pale ale, he better have his ID because the staff takes underage puppers at the bar v. seriously. The Highlands Ranch location is the only one that allows woofs indoors.

18. River North Brewery

Friendly dogs are welcome in River North Brewery’s taproom serving up the classics—IPAs, Belgians, lagers, and stouts—every day of the week. Don’t miss the special events that make this brewery an extra-furbulous doggy date night, like Mugshots for Mutts photo sessions and DOGtoberfest in September. Bein’ bad never looked so good.

19. WestFax Brewing Co.

Whether your dog’s an art connoisseur or a football fanatic, she’ll fit in with the pack at WestFax Brewing Co., which boasts a gallery wall with local Colorado art, plenty of TVs to catch the big game, and seating galore indoors and out. Keep your ears perked for Yappy Hour events, too. With proceeds benefiting local animal organizations, your dog’ll feel good about letting you order another Urban Lumberjack Hazy IPA.

20. Resolute Brewing Company

If you missed Resolute Brewing Company’s last Hair of the Dog party on New Year’s Day, don’t get your tail in a twist. This brewery frequently hosts four-legged-friendly events like Yappy Hours and Pawtastic Holiday Photos. Plus, with water bowls and treats always on tap, and two locations in Centennial and Arvada, there’s no reason not to shimmy up to the bar for a frosty cold one.

21. Launch Pad Brewery

Did your dog graduate at the top of his obedience class? Does he frequently watch The Big Bang Theory? Pawhaps he’s named Sheldon or Howard? Immediately report to Launch Pad Brewery for “rocket fuel” in the form of Kosmonaut Kölsch, GEO5 Infrared Ale, and Project Apollo: Galaxy. The beers, complimentary water bowls, and dog-friendliness are outta this world.

22. Wonderland Brewing

You and your dog will feel like you’ve actually stepped into wonderland at Wonderland Brewery in Broomfield. Snag a Rye is This Still Happening rye or Cat’s Pajamas from the bar before settling in for a game of ping-pong, cornhole, pickleball, or mini-golf. When you’re ready to break for food, you don’t have to worry about those begging puppy dog eyes longing for a bite of your bacon; on-site Wonder Grill also offers a special menu exclusively for furry friends.

23. Liquid Mechanics Brewing Co.

Boasting the motto “a little rebellion is good for the soul,” Liquid Mechanics Brewing Co. sounds like the ideal spot for every dog who’s ever stolen a meatball from the table (YOLO). Leave all worries of counter-surfing behind while you gulp down a Peanut Butter Porter or Street Punk Stout—and if you’ve put said meatball incident in the past, maybe you two’ll even share a meal from the rotating calendar of food trucks.

24. LandLocked Ales

In contrast to Colorado’s high altitude, LandLocked Ales has made a name for itself with its characteristically lower-alcohol beers that don’t lack anything in flavor. Translation: You and your pup can hang in the taproom longer without needing to call an Uber Pet to get you both home.

25. Coda Brewing Co.

Don’t tell your pup there’s a drink called Dogcatcher—a red ale with orange blossom honey—on the menu of Coda Brewing Co. in Golden. While you enjoy “experimental elixirs” from scientist-turned-brewer Luke Smith, your pup can indulge in complimentary water bowls and treats.

26. Locavore Beer Works

How much does Locavore Beer Works love pets? Last year, it brewed a beer called Man’s Best Friend in tribute to the dogs and cats of the brewery staff. Stop by for Belgians, pale ales, American lagers, and more, plus water bowls and the occasional treato for Fido.

27. Brewery Rickoli

The motto over at Brewery Rickoli is “Brew Small, Drink Big.” This smol fry of a brewery in Wheat Ridge (one of the smallest in Colorado) brews with a tiny system, but crafts beers with an obscene amount of flavor. You’ll find big, high gravity, well balanced brews, and even the gluten-removed beers actually taste like beer.

28. Crystal Springs Brewing Co.

We’re getting cozy home-sweet-home vibes from Crystal Springs Brewing Co. This Louisville taproom operates out of a corner house on Main Street—front porch and all! With year-round offerings, seasonal beers, and limited releases, you can try something new each time you and your smartie pup belly up for Tuesday Trivia.

29. LUKI Brewing

Step into history at LUKI Brewing, with decor celebrating the circus from the Roaring 20’s era. Have no fear scaredy cats and dogs, we’re not talkin’ scary clowns, but rather a contemporary take on a classic time in America. You’ll be pawmazed by the unique space, special events, and rotating food trucks.

30. Ohm Brewing Company

Blew your budget on a summer Red Rocks concert? Stop into Ohm Brewing Company on your way to the show and save $2 off your first pour. See how we always have your back? If you’re visiting Golden in the winter, try the Mexican Chocolate Stout, a special holiday warming bevy that’s sure to keep you toasty inside.

31. Sunroom Brewing

We love a good backstory, and Sunroom Brewing got its name from owners Matthew and Melanie’s first brews in the sunroom of their home! Fast forward years later when they opened their own taproom in Englewood, complete with a large patio, a variety of indoor seating including comfy couches, and weekly events like live music, stand up comedy, and trivia nights.

32. Ursula Brewery

All doggo needs to know about Ursula Brewery is they keep treats behind the bar for furry friends. Sold. Hungry pups will also enjoy this Aurora taproom’s sister restaurant, Cedar Creek Pub (across the street), which will deliver their entire menu right to your table. Be sure to check out Ursula’s merch which includes dog collars and fanny packs.

33. Windfall Brewing Company

A beer called Puppies? Sounds like our kind of people work at Windfall Brewing Company in Westminster. Order a few, cuz you’ll need to throw back enough liquid courage to get up on stage and howl your fave tunes on karaoke night.
