What Makes it Great
If you've just finished a long hike, a ride at Phil's World or visited Mesa Verde, the MicroBrewery Tour is a relaxing finish to a day in Montezuma County. You'll be glad you aren't driving, so you can enjoy the scenery, and taste without worry!
Go behind the scenes at each of our breweries to learn about the brewing process, and the agricultural heritage of SW Colorado. On the ride, guests can chat with friends or listen to local history and tales (we might even stop from some pictures, if the colors look right!) The tours finishes right next to the Cortez Cultural Center, where guests can watch the daily at 7 PM.
