Where to Watch the Big Game on Sunday
Super Bowl Snacks, Beer & Fun
By Steve Graham
The Super Bowl is this Sunday, Feb. 3. Sure, the Broncos aren’t going to the dance, but you’re probably still going to watch the game, even if only to hate-watch the Patriots or hate-watch this ridiculous Stella Artois ad (if the Dude ever had a beer, it would almost certainly be this White Russian stout, but I digress). Here are our five picks around Colorado for watching the big game with your friends.
Three Dogs Tavern
If you’re not hate-watching the Patriots and you’re sick of all the haters, join your fellow Brady backers at Three Dogs Tavern in the Denver Highlands neighborhood. The Patriots Fans of Denver meet at the bar for most Pats games, and this is certainly no exception. Be warned, though, that you can’t be a fan of both the Patriots and Maroon 5. They mute the sound and run a raffle during the halftime show.
With its Super Bowl potluck party, Storybook Brewing in Colorado Springs has the best of both worlds — homemade food, but no chance of running out of beer, and you don’t have to clean up.
The North El Paso Street brewery is also offering drink specials during the game. Click here for more details.
And don’t forget you can pre-burn all those beer calories on the Super Half Marathon and Game Day 5K on Super Bowl Sunday morning in Colorado Springs.
The gourmet Fort Collins sandwich shop with great local taps has quickly become a local favorite, especially for the new apartment towers near the restaurant. Snack Attack is offering $2 Old Aggies, $5 Sad Pandas, $5 beer-mosas and $20 beer buckets, plus food specials and a raffle at the end of each game quarter.
Also, you don’t have to worry about not getting a seat because they are taking reservations, with a free Old Aggie pint for every registered guest.
You can also make reservations to see the game on the big screen at the famed Belly Up in Aspen. The party is free, but the best seats on the railing require a $50 minimum food and beverage purchase per person. Click here for reservations and more information.
Collision Brewing Company
One of Colorado’s newest breweries is getting into the Super Bowl spirit. Collision Brewing in Longmont hosts a Big Game Party with two beers and buffet dinner for $30 ($10 for kids). Click here for details.
