It's almost as if it was schemed. Six breweries within walking distance from one of Denver's most well-known climbing gyms, Movement. Post-climb beers are now too hard to pass up than ever before. I've only been to one in the area, though now that I have a list, maybe I'll be held a little more accountable. Here's where chill: 

1 // Renegade Brewing Company: This place was smaller than Steve and I expected, but perfectly cozy and empty on a recent snowy night. Steve sipped the Pancakes Maple Porter, one we've had before, and I went for the Denver Bicycle Chai, which I'd have again. 

2 // Crazy Mountain: According to Steve, they have bomb chili. I've had this beer in a can at a Red Rocks Concert, but it doesn't count in place of actually going there. The interior is woodsy and welcoming, while the beers have wild names, such as Horseshoes & Hand Grenades.

3 // LowDown Brewery + Kitchen: Three dudes who love beer decided to perfect their craft and share it with others against a classic brick backdrop. They hooked me at their Saturday and Sunday event "Brunch and Beer."

4 // Black Sky Brewery: We drive past this one almost every time we go. The vibe is pretty metal so expect tattoos, black garb and hard core music. The bearded owner, Harry, calls the small production experimental and boundary breaking.

5 // Banded Oak Brewing Company: The brewers use barrels from Napa to age the beer. The 12-tap system spews most of the classics, from blondes to ales and even kombucha.

6 // TRVE Brewing Company: Here's another "true heavy metal" brewery for you. Try the Unholy Upheaval dubbel or the Tunnel of Trees IPA. If you dare.
