There are more than 140 craft breweries in Colorado, and four of them are right here in Mesa Verde Country! Ales and lagers, hoppy IPAs and pilsners, along with a variety of seasonal beers are available from each brewery.

Dolores River Brewery believes that beer can change the world. That’s why they're out to change the world one beer at a time with their delicious and thought-provoking micro brews. Not only will you get a fresh beer, they bake their own wood-fired oven pizza and bring in live music from time to time.

Main Street Brewery in Cortez likes to remind customers that the best way to avoid heart attacks is to drink beer! Their brew master follows the German Reinheitsgebot (law of purity) to handcraft their Mesa Cerveza line of nine different ales and lagers, along with a variety of seasonal beers. The brewery includes a restaurant and gift shop with an impressive collection of beer souvenirs.

Coyote J. Brewing Company is also located in Cortez. Their handcrafted micro brews are created from carefully selected choice ingredients and brewed to perfection. You’ll find a variety of pale, dark, and amber ales, a dark bock and a wheat ale. You’ll find the beer inside J. Fargo’s Family Dining & Micro Brewery, where food and other domestic and imported are also available. Growlers are available at all three breweries so you can bring home a taste of Mesa Verde Country.
