1 - Hops Culture Celebrates Colorado's Microbrews

With more than 230 craft brewers in the state, it’s an understatement to say that Colorado takes its beer seriously. Catering to the beer obsessed, Aspen’s new restaurant and bar Hops Culture features a selection of more than 200 brews from the United States and abroad, a whopping 30 of which will be on tap. While beer will be Hops Culture’s focus, the bar will also offer 20 wines by the glass and mule-style cocktails served in copper mugs. House-made fare, crafted by Sarah Helsley, formerly of The Little Nell and The Cheese Shop, pairs perfectly with the myriad drinking selections. Helsley’s menu favorites include drink-friendly items such as a grilled cheese sandwich on garlic French bread stuffed with lasagna; a gourmet mac ’n’ cheese with roasted jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and artisan bacon; and, if you must, a winter squash salad with black rice, arugula, and candied pecans. 414 E.
