Vail Brewing Company
You’ll need a car or cab to get to Vail’s newest tap house, located about seven miles from Vail Village. Here, the mood is casual and welcoming—large glass garage doors slide open during nice weather, and beers on tap change regularly according to the brewmaster’s mood. Flights of beer are the main attraction, while live music and corn-hole platforms add to the brewery’s lively vibes. No kitchen means there’s a bring-your-own-food policy (or you can have it delivered), but if you’re lucky you’ll visit on a day when Rocky Mountain Taco Truck is parked outside. Owned by locals, the truck serves some of the best Mexican food in Vail Valley.
