Well, where else in the States can the mayor of the city own one of the most popular microbreweries in the country? Of course, only in Denver SVG. Of course, John Hickenluper started his career not in politics, but in the creation of an excellent foamy drink, which is as popular in the capital of Colorado. In addition to amber draught, Denver SVG is famous for its status of a “city at the height of a mile”, and this is true – it is the only settlement of this scale in the U.S., located strictly at an altitude of 1609 m above sea level. And, perhaps, it is necessary to remember one more “chip” of the Colorado capital without which the image of the city would be incomplete – it is its special, original cuisine. Try the Rocky Mountain Oysters, for example, but keep in mind that these are nothing more than fried bull’s testes.
Of course, the “lion’s share” of tourists tends to the former mining town, founded in 1858 during the Colorado gold rush, not so much to explore the sights, very worthy, by the way, as for the sake of fantastic ski resorts around. Snow-Mass, Aspen, Breckenridge, Vail and a dozen more names sounding better for the ear of every skier than any other music in the world.
