Glenwood Springs: Sample the Bounty of Autumn in a Glass

Fall’s flavors have many variations. Sample the season’s offerings and learn something new at a beer, wine or spirits tasting in Glenwood Springs

Glenwood Canyon Brewpub
. The award-winning brewery will be tapping the easy-drinking fall favorite, Diamond Jack Pilsner around Oct. 10. This year’s version features a brew that has been dry hopped with a touch more Czech Saaz hops than usual, creating super crisp and refreshing flavor. Later in Oct. or early Nov., look for the 3-time Great American Beer Festival medal winner Dos Rios, a Vienna-style lager that features a soft, elegant maltiness. 

Cooper Wine & Spirits
. Also in historic downtown Glenwood Springs, this hip little bottle shop hosts free tastings every Friday and Saturday night, from 5 – 7 p.m. That’s right free tastings! Just come prepared to show your ID. Gather round the wine barrel tables as owners Kevin and Sharon Brady serve up, well, whatever they’re serving. On any given weekend, you might be sampling a variety of Colorado microbrews, locally crafted whiskeys or the shop’s most recent wine acquisitions. 

The Designer’s Vault
. This shop is right where you’d expect a vault to be – underground. Located in the Vectra Bank building at the corner of 8th Street and Grand Avenue, this interior design consignment store also doubles as a cozy wine tasting room featuring wines from the Olathe, Colo. winery Cottonwood Cellars. Tastings start at just $7. The Designers Vault is open Tuesday from 11 -6; Wednesday – Saturday from 11 -7; and closed Sunday and Monday.
