Just outside the Breckenridge area, in between Denver and Casey Brewing, you will find outer range Brewing Company. They have a beautiful outdoor seating area tucked in a small mountain town. They focus primarily on hazy ipas. During my stop my friend tried three double ipas and I got one single ipa.
The beers were all within the range of what you would expect for the style these days. Your beer preference within the IPAs would mostly be up to you favorite flavors of hops. For those who venture out to the area for hiking or skiing, outer range will satisfy the urge for ipa either in growlers or cans.
I also ordered a grisette while I was there and it was well made. The beer has notes of banana and cloves reminiscent of a Belgian wheat beer. The beer was both highly carbonated and extremely dry, making it easy to drink quickly. While the brewery doesn’t serve food they are right next door to a Mexican restaurant that appears to serve food to the brewery.
Denver has a number of excellent breweries making hazy ipas at the same level as outer range so I would suggest stopping in only if you have another reason to venture out into the mountains. One great option would be stopping by Idaho springs for a soak in the hot springs before going out to the brewery. There are also a number of hikes around the area. Since they sell a number of their beers in cans you can stop by and pick up a few four packs to bring with you to your weekend nature retreat.
Come to outer range for the hazy ipas. They also have the occasional guest tap for a stout.
