1. Rocky Mountains, Colorado
Pretty much every mountain town up here has at least one brewpub these days; there are 120 and counting in the state. CO is good to go year round for activities — snow sports in winter, and mtn / road biking, rafting / paddling, and backcountry hiking / camping once it all melts.
Zephyr’s Colorado Hike, Bike, Beer & Brewpubs trip matches morning adventure itineraries — highlight would be hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park — with afternoons sampling the local taps and dinners off brewpub menus. The tour includes a visit to the biggest of the micros — New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins — and entry to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.
