Beer Here hero for home page-01

Now through Aug. 9, 2020: Beer Here! Brewing the New West Special Exhibition at History Colorado Center

A river of beer flows through Colorado’s past.

Back in the gold rush, saloons weren’t just saloons. They were post offices, restaurants, hotels, and social clubs. But then Colorado banned alcohol—four years before Prohibition hit the rest of the country. By the 1970s, beer was big business again—really big business. Now, homebrewers have gone pro and it seems like there’s a brewery on every corner.

All of this making you thirsty for more? Come explore our brewing past, present, and future. See beer-brewing equipment from then to now, a massive bottle-breaker from Prohibition days, the nation’s first aluminum beer cans, and a wealth of other artifacts from our state’s hoppy history.

Visit nineteenth-century saloons, Prohibition-era “drugstores,” and the kitchen that brewed up the modern craft beer industry.

After you view the exhibit, stay awhile to enjoy a sampler tray of historic beer styles.

More than just a tale of ale, this is a story of Colorado—told over a few beers.

Beer Here! is generously supported by lead sponsors Ball Corporation and Coors Brewing Company.
