Wynkoop Brewing Company (1634 18th Street)
Speaking of ice-cold brews, in the other direction away from Coors Field, Wynkoop Brewing Company is another great place to grab a beer and some food.
Wynkoop is just one-third of a mile away from Coors Field to the southwest and just one block away from Union Station, which is where many fans come in from around the Denver metro area via Amtrak, Light Rail, or other public transportation.
They feature nearly two dozen beers on tap and some of them are brewed on site.
For food, they feature some bar food that includes some favorites such as green chili cheese fries, chicken green chili, ribs, burgers (including bison burgers) as well as soups (including gumbo) and a variety of salads.
They also have “Adult Mac and Cheese” (which you can add a variety of proteins, including salmon, shrimp, pork, chicken, and bacon), chicken and waffles, Nashville Hot chicken, and a highly recommended order of fish and chips.
Wynkoop is open for lunch and dinner every day but they have brunch on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 AM as well. They also have a large outdoor seating area if you want to enjoy the warm temperatures and sunshine throughout the summer.
McGregor Square (1901 Wazee Street)
On the third base side of Coors Field and directly on the other side of the street is McGregor Square. McGregor Square just opened in 2021 and was named after the late Rockies team President Keli McGregor.
McGregor Square has more than a dozen restaurants and bars, a hotel, retail stores, a salon, and even permanent residences.
For food, they have Italian (Carmine’s Italian Restaurant), The Original (inside of the Rally Hotel that specializes in brunch options and happy hour), and Milepost Zero Food Hall (which has a number of restaurants inside including pizza, pasta, Chicago-style beef, empanadas, sushi, ramen, a noodle house).
Milepost Zero Food Hall also has a 35-tap self-serve beer wall.
If you’re in town for a weekend or even a day, all of these places are some places that you have to visit
