Front Range Favorites
High Hops Brewery
High Hops Brewery is one of those magical places on the Front Range that you can easily lose yourself at for hours. Not only is it a brewery with some of my most favorite brews, it's a garden center with a beautiful flower room for winter shows and an excellent patio that overlooks their hops farm for summer shows. It's the best reason we've found to visit our neighbors in Windsor.
Andy and I have had the pleasure of trying a lot of the great breweries here in Colorado. We've both picked favorites and High Hops has stood among my top 3 for a few years now. They have my all-time favorite Milk Stout called The Dark One. It has this toasty roasty flavor that makes me want to keep tasting it. Andy is a big fan of their American Red, The Honeyed One. It's hoppy and sweet and goes down easy. This is one of High Hop's flagship brews, we find it on tap every once in a while and are always excited to see it.
If you're into beautiful flowers, tasty brews, sunny patios and happy people, you need to plan a visit to High Hops Brewery. You'll want to block off most of you afternoon for it.
