Aiming to bring the craft beer scene back to Aspen, Aspen Brewing Company was founded in 2008 and has been brewing and serving up beers ever since. The brewery offers a wide variety of beer, ranging from blonde and red ales to stouts and pilsners to seasonal brews. With seating indoors and on an adjacent patio, Aspen Brewing Company's tap room encourages visitors to grab a pint and #DrinkInTheView. There's live music most weekend nights during the summer and winter, and daily happy hour specials on pints, pitchers and growlers from 5 to 7 p.m.
Travelers have nothing but praise for this brewery, citing the friendly and entertaining staff members, the tasty brews and the relaxed atmosphere as prime reasons to return. Those interested in the brewery's history and entire operation should take the tour first, then head to the tasting room, according to visitors.
You'll find the Aspen Brewing Company tasting room in downtown Aspen, on East Hopkins Avenue a few blocks north of the base of Aspen Mountain; it's open daily from noon to midnight. The venue hosts live music acts on Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer and winter months. The brewing facility is located about 4 miles northwest, near the Aspen–Pitkin County Airport (parking is limited; the local bus does stop nearby). Tours of the brewery are available for $20 per person and must be scheduled in advance with groups of five or more.
