Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo)

Lower Downtown, Denver, Colorado

The Basics

Once infamous for its saloons and brothels, the 29-block LoDo neighborhood is now largely restored and renovated but retains historic charm. Wander past landmarks like the 130-year-old Union Station, the historic Daniels & Fisher (D&F) Tower, and the Oxford Hotel en route to hip bookstores, local hangouts, and breweries. Explore the area’s boutiques and galleries on a Denver walking tour to get a sense of the area’s history and revitalization from a tour guide, or opt for a culinary or craft beer tour for a specialty sightseeing experience.

Best beer tour ever.

Craft Beer Tour in Lower Downtown Denver
Our tour guide, Dave, was awesome. He is very knowledgeable in the beer making process as he has lots of years of experience. Not only was he an expert in the beer making process but he is a true entertainer. He was engaging and easy to talk with. The verity of beers were perfect. It was a great way to try different styles of beers while learning the process of how they are made. I would highly recommend this tour as I will definitely do this again when we come back to Denver.

Craft Beer Tour in Lower Downtown Denver
Cool tour. I enjoyed the walking part as well as beer sampling. Would like to see a different brewery in place of the last one, too touristy in my opinion.

Craft Beer Tour in Lower Downtown Denver
Started out leaving a 3 Stars rating - due to decreasing number of breweries, forgetting commemorative glass, and tour guiding leaving early for another job. Steven the owner took care of situation right away. Guide Ethan was very nice and knowledgeable about history or Colorado and breweries.

Paul is a terrific tour guide! I’m not a beer fan, but went because my son loves it. Paul really helped me to appreciate beer and to learn what flavors I can learn to like. So glad I went on this tour! ❤️
