UTurn BBQ keeps it simple with two craft beer choices: UTurn Light and UTurn Dark. The food menu offers more variety, including small appetizers and hearty barbecue platters and sandwiches. What makes this place unique is that you can dine in or order your food and beer to go through the drive-through window. Wait until you’re off the road to crack open a cold one, of course.

Odd13 Brewing

Odd13 focuses on brewing beer, but the owners offer a rotation of popular food trucks for beer drinkers who work up an appetite tasting craft brews. Trivia and foosball tournaments are on the agenda, as well. Try an Admiral Abyss Milk Chocolate Stout or a hoppy Barrel Sneak. If you prefer an IPA, order a pint of Major Ursa. Ask about gluten-free options on tap when you stop in.

We’re not even halfway through our list of microbreweries, but don’t worry — you don’t have to hit all the local craft brew hotspots in a single day. Take your time to sample and savor Lafayette’s local brews. Book your stay for a long weekend at a nearby hotel. You’ll find a wide range of places to stay in town, including chain hotels and motels.

Endo Brewing Company

Endo Brewing Company is the place to go if you want to have your mountain bike tuned up or repaired while you sip a cold draft microbeer. Two craft brew fans founded this brewery to combine their love of beer and mountain biking. Beers on tap might include the Ticknock Irish red, Unicycle Belgian blonde, and Knobby milk stout. When you’re hungry, order food from nearby eateries and have it delivered to your bar stool at Endo’s. You’ll catch the occasional food truck at this brewery, too.

Liquid Mechanics Brewing Company

Your search for award-winning microbrews ends at Liquid Mechanics Brewing Company. Its craft brews have racked up more than 30 awards since 2015. Winning brews include the Imperial Porter and the Belgian Double IPA. Seasonal offerings include Passionfruit Gose, Pina Colada Kolsch, and Peanut Butter Porter.

Front Range Brewing Company

Bluegrass fans can plan to spend an evening at Front Range Brewing Company. Music fills the air Thursday through Saturday. Enjoy the tunes along with a cold sour Sonnebahn Berliner Weisse, a Blackhawk Black IPA, or a Colorado Fall Golden Coffee Stout. Homemade root beer and cider are available, too. Pair your tap brew with pub fare such as flatbread pizzas and beer brat sliders.

Finish your Lafayette microbrewery experience by returning to your favorite spot to sip one more pint before you head to the next town on your Colorado brew tour. You’ll remember the variety of microbrews and the hospitality of local pub owners until your next visit.
