Be aware of the Colorado climate and dress appropriately. In some areas you may have to walk a short distance from the bus to the brewery. In the autumn and winter we highly suggest warm clothing, jackets, and/or coats. In the spring we suggest dressing for warmer weather, but use layers as the temperatures can fluctuate. Summer time is great for shorts and t-shirts. Shoes and shirts are required.
