Fort Collins Brewery If your yoga class doesn’t end with a free beer or Bloody Mary, you’re going to the wrong studio … or brewery. Fort Collins Brewery Yoga runs from 9 to 10 a.m. every Sunday. Cost is $15, including a beverage. Proceeds benefit FoCo Cafe, the city’s first non-profit restaurant, where patrons donate what they can afford for healthy meals made with local and organic ingredients. 

Pint Room Ohio’s beloved Pint Room expanded to Colorado with 175 draft lines, gourmet burgers and a beautiful patio on the Platte River in Littleton. When dealing with active drinkers, location is key. Notice the Mary Carter Greenway Trail just outside the backdoor. Snowshoe, run or kayak to the joint, depending on what kind of Colorado day you’re experiencing.

Wild Woods Brewery After a fun snowshoeing trip near Boulder, you might need to slowly ease back into civilization at the seven-barrel Wild Woods Brewery, where the beers are both inspired and flavored by the great outdoors. The flagship IPA is conditioned with juniper berries. The Wildflower Pale Ale is flavored with whole dried jasmine flowers. A wheat beer is flavored with wild berries. And for dessert, the S’mores Stout mildly evokes the campfire treat.

New Belgium Brewery With about 20 car parking spots and ample bike parking, Colorado’s biggest craft brewery will shame you into pedaling to the Fort Collins tasting room. Plus, it’s just off a beautiful path along the Poudre River. If it’s sunny enough for two wheels, they will give you swag and discounts for showing up on your bike. They also host bike parades, a bike-in movie series, cruiser giveaways and other year-round celebrations of beer and bikes.
