DENVER, CO

Denver, aka "Mile High City," has too many award-winning breweries to list. Voted "Walkable Town," here are some guidelines for when you head out. Don't walk up to a local and assume it's all about smoking weed or skiing. Can you imagine how many times locals are asked about that? Just go grab a brew at a local pub or brewery. Also, let's clear this up, Denver is not in the mountains. Those peaks are about 20 minutes away, but don't say that loudly in a bar. "200 peaks!" Denver hosts the American Beer Festival every year.
