A person can’t walk 10 feet in Colorado without stumbling into a microbrewery. Everyone knows that. The distillery scene, however, is a little less known, a little less saturated, but no less awesome. Why not take a day to compare and contrast some of Colorado’s finest libations, and what better way to do a little “research” than with 303 Party Bus? Don’t drink and drive–drink and ride.
One of my favorites: Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. Take a tour of the distillery for free (tasting included) and stay for a round at the lounge–a rustic Colorado scene with a menu of seasonal drinks, all of Stranahan’s varieties, and whiskey flights. Consider renting a 303 Party Bus for Stranahan’s once a year Snowflake release so you can tailgate in warmth and style! Find information here: http://www.stranahans.com
In the mood for more than whiskey? Head to Mile High Spirits. Located in downtown Denver, they have a tasting room, patio, and food trucks so you can fill your belly while tasting their rum, gin, bourbon, tequila, and vodka. The websites says they will offer tours soon, which I’m stoked for, as MHS is one of three distilleries in the WORLD with an all glass still. Check them out here: http://www.drinkmilehighspirits.com
All of the above plus fernet, absinthe, aperitivo, and a variety of liqueurs? Head to Leopold Bros. You will have to shell out $20 for a tour, but that comes with a full run down of the process, tasting of up to 14 of their products, and a $10 credit towards two bottles in the tasting room (the other $10 goes to different non profits in the area).

Head to Boulder to Vapor Distillery for gin, vodka, whiskey, coffee liqueur, and a pumpkin cordial. Yes. You read right. Tours are free and include a tasting of their products. Stay awhile at their bar and try some of their ever changing cocktails, and maybe–just maybe–you might get to sample a new product. Find them here: http://vapordistillery.com
Downslope Distilling has rum in spades–white, gold, spiced, vanilla, and wine barrel aged–plus gin, whiskey, and cane/grain/pepper vodka. Cocktails, tour, plus distillery school!? You may, however, want to save the latter for a day when you aren’t doing quite so much “comparing.” Here’s the link: http://www.downslopedistilling.com
With so many fine beverages needing to be tasted, why wouldn’t you get on the task post haste? Call 303 Party Bus at 303-747-6501 to get your drink on in a memorable, practical, and epic way. Cheers!
