Great American Beer Fest bike trip part 1

It's my favorite time of the year, Great American Beer Fest time. The fest is in full swing and I conveniently moved from Boston to Denver yesterday. My bikes all made it in one piece and I'm ready to mingle with the thousands of other beer nerds that have descended upon the city. This will be seventh year attending GABF so I like to mix it up and try new things. Luckily, each year there seems to be a new neighborhood blowing up and usually about 5-10 new breweries to try out. My plans for today are simple, I'll be coming down from the Highlands fueled by Scratch Burrito and Happy Tap and hanging out in the River North and LoDo neighborhoods before heading to the What The Funk fest. I don't like to travel long distances by bike when there are this many people out drinking all day, and especially not when I plan to be sampling beer all day, so this map is also very walkable. Be safe out there and enjoy the ride.

I'd tell you more about how great all these breweries are but I've got to get moving.
