Like many of the patio hangouts in Denver, Ratio Beerworks hits its prime during the sun-filled seasons.
When the sun is shining, there are few patio bars in Denver's better than the Beer Garden at Ratio. Much of the atmosphere that Ratio offers, is deeply influenced by their passion for a Punk Rock vibe. From the music, art, and events they hold, you can feel the unique character that makes Ratio one of a kind.

10 Barrel Brewing Co
Good For: Beer lovers, amazing food, great sour brews, large rooftop (inside & outside seating).
(Walnut St. & 26th.)
10 Barrel has successfully opened its doors in 7 cities across the US for one reason: they flat out serve great beer, chill vibes, and always grub food.
Created with one simple concept in mind…” brew beer, drink beer, and have fun doing it,” 10 Barrel is a beer lovers delight. Whether you need a little hair of the dog, want to cap off a day on the mountain, or are looking to get a little rowdy, 10 Barrel wants you to “live it up with a beer in hand.”
Matched with its unique brewery blends (try the cucumber sour) and full food menu, 10 Barrel makes for a great stop just before the sun sets. The rooftop sits just high enough to have a perfect view of the Colorado colors and Denver skyline.
Tip: The rooftop is large but outside seating is limited. It can be hard to snag a table with larger groups.
Perks: Great sours, solid food menu for a brewery (healthy and kids options as well), view of the skyline, chiller atmosphere (if that's what you want).
