After meeting up with your local guide, we make our way over to the River North Art District (RiNo) using a Denver-only rideshare company. RiNo is an achingly hip, up-and-coming neighborhood that boasts a serious number of creative businesses and fun start-ups, without a chain store in site.
Our first stop is one of Denver’s newest and most popular distilleries. Serving an impressive array of flavored seasonal gins and exceptional vodka among other spirited drinks, no detail is overlooked by this family-run establishment. We enjoy the bar and terrace area (weather permitting) as we sip superb liquors made from top-quality local grains and fruit.
Next up, it’s time to experience what Denver is famed for: its unbelievably good craft beer scene. We make our way to our absolute favorite local brewery to sample a flight of beers. The large tanks inside may look ultra serious, but don’t be fooled — this establishment may well be the most fun place in Denver to hang out on a summer evening, and you get to see why the locals love it so much.
After boozing on liquor and beer, we think it’s time to get some food into you! And not just any food will do — we are going to take you to a place that has become a magnet for foodies all over Denver, where we enjoy some locally sourced gastro delights that show you why Denver is gaining a strong reputation as a fabulous foodie hot spot.
But wait, we’re not done yet! A short walk after dinner takes us to a beloved local cidery to try a uniquely dry style of cider. You’re sure to love the rare flavor profiles and interesting variations that this joint specializes in, so prepare to be wowed!
As we finish our rounds, you may find that you want to stay out and play, and we wouldn’t blame you one bit, as RiNo is awesome! We can leave you to marinate longer and find your own way home (we’re always happy to advise on the best way to do so) or, if you decide to stick with us, we drop you in an area where there’s plenty more to see, do, and drink during the rest of your dynamite Denver night out. Cheers!

Mr. Thomas W. from United Kingdom travelled on 03 Dec 2018:
Anna made sure that a potentially awkward 1 on 1 tour ran smoothly and I really appreciate it! All of the venues were fantastic and the tour felt very well prepared. Anna’s enthusiasm for her city and state has convinced me to return to Colorado in the future!
