Summary

Nothing hits the spot after a long, satisfying run, hike or bike ride than a cold, local brew. Aspen Brewing Company provides Aspen recreationists with both the brews and a dog-friendly tasting room in downtown Aspen to celebrate an adventure well had. On a sunny afternoon, sitting out on the tasting room's patio provides gorgeous, center-stage views of Aspen Mountain. If its ski season, you can watch the skiers schuss down the mountain from afar.

Nothing hits the spot after a long, satisfying run, hike or bike ride than a cold, local brew. Aspen Brewing Company provides Aspen recreationists with both the brews and a dog-friendly tasting room in downtown Aspen to celebrate an adventure well had. On a sunny afternoon, sitting out on the tasting room's patio provides gorgeous, center-stage views of Aspen Mountain. If its ski season, you can watch the skiers schuss down the mountain from afar.
Microbrew aficionados will be in seventh-heaven with the Aspen Brewing Company's selection. Boasting a range of brews that run the gamut from their always-available beers, like their Independence Pass Ale, This Season's Blonde, Ajax Pilsner, Conundrum Red Ale and Pyramid Peak Porter, to their small-batch barrel-aged creations, like the Bourbon Barrel Imperial Red, Aged Blonde or Vanilla Rum Porter.
You can expect a very heavy local crowd at the Aspen Brewing Company Tasting Room and many furry friends in tow. Aspen Brewing Company is dog-friendly and more than often than not you'll get to meet the resident canines, Otis and Little Nell. 
The Tasting Room is also a great place to watch a game on one of three flatscreen TVs or enjoy a lazy weekend afternoon board game or card game with friends. You can order food up from Over Easy restaurant, which features a great and reasonably priced breakfast, brunch and lunch menu. 
If you've developed a serious addiction to this delicious craft beer, you can bring a six-pack of Independence Pass Ale or This Season's Blonde home, or order a growler of whatever they have on tap. Many of Aspen's restaurants and bars serve the Independence Pass Ale or This Season's Blonde so keep your eyes peeled for the wooden Aspen Brewing Company tap or the signature black and white can.
Parking Parking in this part of town can be tough, especially during holidays or events, so do yourself a favor and just park two blocks west of the Tasting Room around Paepke Park. There's plenty of free two-hour parking spaces around this area, too.
