After an adventurous day exploring Pike’s Peak, stop for some food and beverages at Manitou Brewing Company. This charming brewpub is conveniently found in Manitou Springs, and at Pike’s Peak’s base.
Some exciting history of this beautiful place is that it was at one time the Manitou Burro Line. Back in the 1800s, when someone wanted to go to the top of the mountain, they stopped here for their burro!
Enjoy a relaxing refreshment of beer born directly from the incredible waters that can be found near Pike’s Peak’s top. With a lot of beers brewed on-site, the selection changes weekly and seasonally. You can also enjoy your favorite craft beer!
Some of the wonderful options for you to experience at Manitou Brewery is Perky Blonde, Bikini Bottom Blonde, and Watermelon Wheat. Each of these options comes currently in 10 oz, pint, or as a crowler.
One may even experience a delicious drink from Ft. Collins, Brooklyn, Telluride, or Jackson without leaving Manitou Springs comforts.
Do not worry, wine lovers, you are not left out! Enjoy a glass of Dante Cabernet Sauvignon or Ornato Pinot Grigio as you indulge in the accompanying company.
Breckenridge Bourbon, Bulleit Bourbon, Peach Street Jackelope Gin, are available for the more adventurous. Coke products are also on tap.
