Aspen Brewing Company
Last Updated June 01, 2016
Why We Love It: In 2008, co-founder/manager Duncan Clauss launched Aspen’s first contemporary craft brewery (the Roaring Fork Valley’s first was established in 1885). Specializing in barrel-aged brews like Cougar (an aged blonde) and seasonals like the crisp Ajax Pilsner, but you’ll also find year-round offerings in the Silver Queen series—try local fave Brown Bearale. Visit the taproom downtown; the brewery is in a business center across from the airport.
