Sipping a cold brew on a hot summer afternoon under the gaze of the towering Rockies should be a universal human right. In Denver, it pretty much is thanks to more than 150 breweries and dozens of beer bars to choose from — not to mention the behemoth Coors factory just up Sixth Avenue in Golden. The only way to experience this properly is to book a stay in the city, lace up your best walking shoes, and hit the pavement because it’s never too far to the next taproom. These Airbnb’s in Denver put you close to the city’s best breweries.

1. Entire guesthouse walking distance to RiNo and Five Points

Before arriving in Denver, write these four letters on the back of your hand, so you don’t forget them: RiNo. In Mile High parlance, this stands for River North, a little section of the city that’s unequivocally the greatest beer neighborhood in the United States, and probably the world. Likely, no one has ever tried this, but theoretically, you could grab a group of friends and split up — each heading to a different brewery — and conduct a solo pub crawl for multiple hours without ever running into each other. This Airbnb in Denver is the perfect start and endpoint of said pub craw. Fortunately, it’s also located along a popular route for food delivery services and a stone’s throw from The Source food hall.

Nearby breweries: Blue Moon, Mockery Brewing, Black Shirt Brewing, Cohesion Brewing, River North Brewery, Ironton Distillery and Crafthouse, 14er Brewing and Taphouse

2. Rustic red brick loft in Five Points

Five Points is Denver’s most historic neighborhood, home to a classic jazz culture and multiple historic music venues. This steampunk-designed loft is in the heart of the neighborhood and the living room is the perfect place for a delivery spread from nearby Birdcall, one of Denver’s hottest restaurants for fried chicken. Plan a route for your day in advance because there are brewpubs in every direction. You want to finish along Larimer or Walnut Streets, effectively making a nearly completed circle. Your legs (or a bike) can carry you even farther to Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, and its surrounding nightlife district. This area is also home to — appropriately — several more breweries and the city’s most famous beer bar, Falling Rock Tap House, which features more than 200 brands of suds.

Nearby breweries: Spangalang Brewing, Woods Boss Brewing, Great Divide, Our Mutual Friend, Odell Five Points Brewhouse, Epic Brewing, 10 Barrel

This townhouse is the perfect middle point between the two listings above. The townhouse itself is cozy and spacious, with a fenced-in yard for patio sessions. A Colorado flag provides an ideal selfie backdrop. From RiNo and Five Points, head east via car to visit City Park, a large greenspace home to both the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Downtown Denver is also a quick jaunt away. Of the Airbnbs in Denver for beer drinkers, this one is the most centrally located.

Nearby breweries: Spangalang Brewing, Woods Boss Brewing, Blue Moon, Mockery Brewing, Black Shirt Brewing, Cohesion Brewing, River North Brewery, Ironton Distillery, and Crafthouse, 14er Brewing and Taphouse, Great Divide, Our Mutual Friend, Odell Five Points Brewhouse, Epic Brewing, 10 Barrel

LoHi, or Lower Highlands, is the trendiest part of town. This Airbnb is in a perfect spot for beer drinking, skyline views, and rooftop patios. Start your day with lunch at Avanti Food and Beverage, a massive two-story food hall with a patio overlooking the downtown skyline. Here, plan your beer trail through the neighborhood beginning west of Interstate 25, and then proceeding under the overpass to the breweries on the east side. Denver Beer Co. buzzes with action from the early afternoon on, particularly on weekends, so make this the meeting point if other groups will be joining you along the way. For a bit of variety on tap along with a great meal, stop into the Ale House.

Nearby breweries: Zuni Street Brewing, Prost Brewing, Denver Beer Co., Cerveceria Colorado

Denver is on full display in this home, lined with local art and furniture and featuring a ladder-accessed loft. This home is great for small groups, and it has plenty of space to lounge without crowding each other. The neighborhood, Lincoln Park, is a great base for exploring Denver because it’s just south of the downtown traffic and crowds, but still a short bike ride or Uber from the action if you want to head out to a show or restaurant in the city center. The Santa Fe Arts District is home to the popular First Friday Art Walk (and Renegade Brewing, which is the place to be before, during, and after the outdoor events). The Denver Broncos stadium, Empower Field at Mile High, is also nearby. And the neighborhood is home to a handful of cozy breweries popular with locals meeting for after-work pints or plotting their mountain escape for the coming weekend.

Nearby breweries: Wit’s End Brewing, Renegade Brewing, Raices Brewing
