In the Vail and Roaring Fork Valley's, Cripple Creek Backcountry is known not just for outstanding service- but for delicious craft beer


Last week we had the opportunity to tour the production facility and visit the taproom of one of our favorite local breweries. Based in the town of Eagle, Bonfire Brewing was founded in 2010 and is rapidly growing into a regional staple. Owner Andy Jessen showed us what goes into their production and was generous enough to let us taste a few in their taproom. We couldn't have been more satisfied with the quality of their beer, and we couldn't be more excited to continue a great partnership with a flourishing local business.



We felt right at home surrounded by mountains of beer cans 


So what's on tap at Cripple Creek this winter? Well, it depends on the week. We love to support local business and will rotate our taps accordingly to showcase the fantastic local beer we are lucky to enjoy. In our Vail shop, our four taps will be primarily occupied by our good friends from Bonfire, but will also boast some beer from Vail Brewing Co. among others. In Carbondale, we can't say enough good things about Roaring Fork Beer Company and thanks to our mutual employee Matt Hoogenboom, we have a direct line to the source!



Kegs for days 


There's nothing better than ending a day in the mountains with a local beer. We love sharing laughs and stories around our taps and encourage all of you to come say hello and share a cold one! We'll see you soon!
