Brewery Tour

June 16th 2009, 12:30 p.m.; departs from front of Millennium Hotel
$40

Colorado has over 109 breweries. Boulder is the headquarters of the Association of Brewers and Boulder has some of the best breweries - not just in the USA, but the world. Is there a. connection? When near a harbor, one often does a harbor tour. In Colorado - we do something similar – a brewery tour.

Boulder Brewing

The oldest micro brewery in the state has a different idea of flavor profiles. It has the ability to feed us all at the same time and has a very interesting tour of the brewery.

Avery Brewing

This is the best brewery in Colorado, according to our tour guide. This claim is open to debate as Denver's Great Divide might dispute that, but Avery Brewing has the lead. We don't have time to do both and Pubmaster Geoff gives the edge to Avery, taste why.

Southern Sun Brewing

This is the best brew pub in Colorado, except for maybe Mountain Sun which is run by the same person. Just taste the reason for Pubmaster Geoff’s claim.

Included in the tour is transportation and lunch. We will, of course, do a brewery tour you will have more than enough samples. Add into this mix the scintillating company of .Pubmaster Geoff and your day is complete. Oh yes, when you want a full glass of beer - you buy it.

White Water Rafting

June 16th 2009, 12:30 p.m.; departs from front of Millennium Hotel
$70

Don’t come all the way to Boulder and let the great outdoor adventures of Colorado get away! Join us on our half day white water rafting trip on beautiful Clear Creek.

This trip leaves the Millennium Hotel at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.  First stop is for lunch at The Sink, home of the best pizza in Boulder where massive pies will be prepared just for our group. We then head south and west to Idaho Springs where we meet up with our river guides.

We go rafting whether it rains or shines and having the proper clothing and staying warm can really add to your experience. Remember, you will get WET and the water is cold. For this reason bring comfortable clothing. This may include a bathing suit, nylon shorts, old tennis shoes, and river sandals that attach to your feet. When it is sunny do not forget your sun hat, sunglasses with strap, and sunscreen. However, on cool days wear items such as wool or fleece sweaters and socks. For your comfort on cool days, wet suits are recommended. If you desire to rent a wet suit, we can outfit you like a pro for an additional $12.00 (see size chart below).

Blue jeans and cotton clothing are NOT.recommended as they get wet and stay wet which keeps you cold. Remember to pack dry clothes to change into after the trip.
