Get ready for a true Denver experience! Join the craft beverage movement in Denver’s unique River North Art District (RiNo), then grab a local meal in authentic Mile High style. We’ll also dive into the trendiest open-air art districts of Colorado as we explore the hidden street art of RiNo. Drink and eat your way through the best of RiNo (River North), Denver’s newest up-and-coming neighborhood. Walk the path of Denver’s LoDo and RiNo revitalization. Visit a local cidery, brewery and distillery for a true Colorado local tasting experience. Go behind the scenes of RiNo’s street art and architecture.Description
Witness the transformation of Denver’s lower downtown warehouse district (LoDo) from after-thought to “THE Spot” for locals as we walk from recently re-opened Union Station, through what was skid row, past Coors Field baseball park and into River North, arguably the fastest up-and-coming neighborhood in Denver. Afterwards we’ll stop for an all-locally sourced lunch. Chef Chris forges personal relationships with each farm he works with; his team visits the farms and works in the fields with the farmers to understand exactly what goes into the food they proudly serve. Next, you’ve got a decision to make: What is your favorite Colorado beer? Not to worry, you’ll have plenty of time and at least 15 local beers, a cider and wine to choose from when we visit a local watering hole. Then it’s off to explore the creativity of the River North Arts District, where the art refuses to be confined behind closed doors. Each year artists are given free range to turn the walls of local buildings into their canvas and the results are stunning. You’ll have plenty of time to take pictures and decide who to follow on Instagram as we make our way through the living canvas that is the River North Art District. We head back to Union Station to see the art on the backside of the RiNo to complete our artsy experience. Catch your breath and take a moment to explore the recently renovated gathering point that is Denver’s Union Station before we continue the adventure. Now it’s time to keep it local and use our Denver-only rideshare company to move us over to River North’s newest distillery, a family-run establishment where no detail goes unnoticed. Next we move into the beer scene, with a taster/flight of beers from another favorite local brewery. The large tanks inside show off the serious side, but don’t be fooled - this may be the best place in Denver to find locals hanging out on a summer evening. Now that you’ve tried both liquor and beer, it’s time to get some food in you - and not just any will do: we’ll take you to either a place that goes the extra mile with creativity with year-round locally sourced dishes, or to a spot that creates gastro delights that pair perfectly with the evening. Pick a sandwich or entrée (I recommend the sandwiches or Jamaican jerk chicken) and take it all in - this place is clearly designed with fun in mind! But wait - we’re not done yet! Just a short walk from our food stop is our favorite local cidery, with a uniquely dry style of cider; you’ll find they like to play with flavor profiles, creating variations that will wow you. As we make our rounds, you may find that you want to stay after and play – which you’re welcome to do! Otherwise, we’ll head back to Union Station where you’ll have a head start on a great evening out in Denver!Highlights
