CO Microbreweries - Durango, CO Springs, Rocky Mt/Estes Park

We're vacationing in CO this year and love microbreweries. We're looking for suggestions in any of the areas mentioned above or somewhere that would be on our route to or from one of those.

      As of now, we're heading from 70W to Durango, then to CO Springs and ending up at Rocky Mt Nat'l park. I don't know any specific highways. We're not dead set on going the most direct and fastest way; we're open to the "scenic routes".

    2. While not a microbrewery, any beer fan should not miss Lady Falconburgh's Barley Emporium in Durango. HUGE selection on tap and even more in the bottle. Broad menu of solid pub food, friendly service and free wifi. Heaven on earth if you ask me.

        In Durango, both Lady Falconburg's and Carvers are good. In Estes Park, the microbrewery whose name I've forgotten, has OK beer but has (or had) lousy food. If you like microbreweries, you have to try some of the several in Denver and in Boulder too.

      2. there are four brewing companies in Durango, Colorado. Carver's Brewing Company, Durango Brewing Company, Steamworks Brewing Company and Ska Brewing Company.
