Best Beer Bars in Northern Colorado
Looking for a great beer bar in Northern Colorado? If you want variety and selection - NoCo not only has some of the best craft breweries in the state but also has some of the best beer bars around.

Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Estes Park have a multitude of fine eating and drinking establishments with large craft beer selections to choose from. Whether it be fresh on tap or from a great collection of local, domestic or import beer in bottles - these places won't steer you wrong.

Note: Local breweries have purposely been kept off this list. In addition, chain restaurants such as Old Chicago, Buffalo Wild Wings, and The Tilted Kilt have also been kept off the list as you can find those all across America.
