A couple friends of mine and I will be doing a few days of backpacking in Colorado in early May and out last night will be in Denver. Our friend is turning 60 our last day there and we'd like to treat him to some great brews and food in downtown Denver. We looking for casual, not touristy, and really good food and beer. All cuisines price points are fine. We're just looking for a cool place to talk smack about our backpacking trip and one of the guys turning 60. If there's a really great place outside of downtown, but not too far from downtown, we're ok with that too as we do have a car, but would prefer not to use it if you know what I mean.
Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
