Colorado Brewery Wedding Venue Spaces for Ceremonies and Receptions

Wedding party celebrates at a Colorado Brewery Wedding Reception

It’s no secret that Colorado is known for being home to an incredible craft beer scene.  According to the Colorado Brewery List, there are now over 405 breweries open in the Centennial state and many of them have beautiful taprooms that would make for both a photogenic and very fun wedding reception.  Hosting your wedding reception at a Colorado brewery is the ultimate in casual Colorado wedding style and may even be a little easier on your budget than hosting a traditional wedding reception.  Guests will also appreciate getting to drink better than average beer at your wedding when held at a craft brewery in one of Denver’s hip neighborhoods. 

Below I’ve compiled a list of Colorado Breweries that rent out their taprooms or other on site spaces for wedding ceremonies and brewery wedding receptions.  They are organized by location and new ones are always being added so be sure to check back if you don’t find what you’re looking for.
