The night before we headed into the mountains for some skiing, Lauren and I wandered about Denver, taking in the sights and enjoying some libations. First we headed to Wild Women Wine because Lauren had a groupon for wine tasting and it is only 2 blocks from her apartment. Wild Women Wine is a private wine maker run by at least 2 women (because I met 2 of the owners).
The wine was actually pretty good. I preferred the Tempranillo and there was a good Merlot/Syrah blend as well. The best part were the awesome wine labels made by an artist in Portland. I couldn’t bring any wine (or beer) home because I carried on my luggage on the airplane. Boo! Cute decor: Classing it up:
Next up was Marlowe’s– a random restaurant/supper club on the 16th St Mall. We went because the name is so awesome! 🙂
My favorite beverage stop in all of Denver was the Great Divide Brewery. I only had one beer I didn’t like (the super hoppy IPA) but I loved the Yeti, Colette Farmhouse, Belgian style Orabelle, and the delicious brown Hoss. If you are ever In Denver, go to the Great Divide Brewery- it is well worth it. These little samplers are only $1!!!!!! There were 3 of us there so we housed many of these little guys. More skiing up next!
