Best of the West 2014 – Drinks

Published on: February 19th, 2014

OVERALL BAR:

WATERLOO

Love the Hard Rock concept but hate the gimmicky vibe of that establishment? Then check out Waterloo in downtown Louisville for some music and “The Loo Hour” happy hour deals. 809 S Main St, Louisville

BITTER BAR

If you’re looking for a cozy spot with killer cocktails and kick-ass Brussels sprouts, look to Bitter Bar. Lounge on the red couch and order a glass of bubbly, if your taste is anything like ours. 835 Walnut St, Boulder

BREWERY:

ODD 13

With comic-book themed beer, it offers an element of fun and some tasty options from food trucks while you sip your brews. We’re partial to the Pumpkin Head Fred. 301 E Simpson St, Lafayette

AVERY

Tucked away in an industrial park, this gem is perfect for a beer-lovers date, business meeting or chatting up local folks. Get there early when it warms up to snag a seat on the cozy patio. 5763 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder

BLOODY MARY:

OSKAR BLUES

Thought Oskar Blues was all beer? Then you were mistaken, friend. Stop in on Sunday morning for customizable Bloody Mary treats. 1555 S Hover Rd, Longmont

FOOLISH CRAIG’S CAFE

There’s something about being featured on the Food Network that automatically makes a place cool. But their Bloody Mary doesn’t need a TV debut to make itself famous – especially if it’s of the onion, garlic and peppercorn variety. 1611 Pearl St, Boulder

HAPPY HOUR:

THE POST BREWERY

Remember: Hot chicken loves cold beer, especially during the 4-6 pm, daily happy hour that includes $1 off all beers, $4 margaritas and deals on eats. 105 W Emma St, Lafayette

BOULDER CAFÉ

Half-price drinks and appetizers served up every day starting at 3 p.m. It’s a rite of passage in Boulder to hit happy hour at this classic spot.1247 Pearl St, Boulder

MARGARITA:

SI SENOR REAL MEXICAN

Get the medium as there’s seriously no need for anything bigger, and pair that bad boy with nachos. Plus, designate a driver, especially if you get the top-shelf Patron version. Multiple locations

RIO GRANDE MEXICAN RESTAURANT

Coupled with the tequila shrimp tacos, this drink will evoke lounging on a Mexican beach. Bonus: A rooftop deck overlooks the Flatirons. 1101 Walnut St, Boulder
