The outdoors and beer are a perfect pair, as we’ve seen with the success of outdoor shops with taps and the abundance of stellar gear made for taking beer along on adventures.

It’s not just the outdoor industry that adores beer. The feeling is so very mutual, and breweries are showing their love to the environment and the outdoors in many ways. Whether it’s preserving land or encouraging kids to get outside, these Colorado breweries are doing great things. If you’re reaching for a beer after a long day at Outdoor Retailer, opt for these.
