My wife Sara and I had the opportunity to celebrate our 1-year wedding anniversary with our family in Winter Park, Colorado. We did the usual things people do in a ski town, but found a hidden gem on our way through town one evening, Hideaway Park Brewery. This small Diamond in the Rough was such a pleasant surprise and we felt right at home.
We immediately fell in love with the place. Since we went during the middle of the week, most of the town was vacant, but this place still had plenty of energy.
There was a good deal of seating and the natural wooden bar was warm and welcoming. A group of friends were enjoying the local nano-brew and playing poker at the corner of the bar.
I’m a huge beer lover with a soft spot for an IPA, and Sara has acquired quite the taste for stouts, porters and other dark varieties over the past year. Hideaway had a limited but wide variety to satisfy our different tastes. My father-in-law, who isn’t much of a beer drinker, even partook and was delightfully impressed with how smooth and crisp the Golden Ale was.
Connect4 was sitting on a large table with other eclectic board games and we started our own 3 person tournament while we enjoyed our beer selections. My wife was a Connect4 genius. Who knew?
It’s important to note that Hideaway Park Brewery doesn’t serve food. However, you’re more than welcome to bring in your own take-out and they have a few snacks for sale.
Thanks Andy and Hideaway Park Brewing Company for making us feel at home during our vacation. It was terrific and we’ll be sure to stop by the next time we decide to hit the slopes. If you’re in Winter Park, be sure to stop by and check this place out!
