On this 3 hour walking tour of Downtown Denver, you’ll find out about Whiskey and Denver History! Denver was truly the Wild West, founded over a barrel of whiskey where dreams and fortunes were made, won, and lost.

We’ll start at Denver’s oldest Irish Pub, learn about and sample Irish Whiskey. You’ll learn about the local whiskies that settled the West and the roles they played in the founding of the city. Along the way you’ll hear tales of the pioneers that made Denver what it is today!

We like to say this is a History Tour with drinking, not a pub crawl. Expect a lot of fun, light History and a variety of Whiskies. We end the tour at a local distillery where you can sample their aged spirits.

Stop 1: Nallen's Irish Pub - Learn about the origin of Whisky and sample Irish Whiskies.

Walk to next stop (30 - 45 minutes) along the way hear tales of Outlaws, forgotten tales and the history of whiskey here in Denver.

Stop 2: Modern Saloon - Learn about American Whiskey, Bourbon, Rye and perhaps some Scotch.

Stop 3:Tour ends at a Distillery, tour the facility and sample their spirits.

We like to say this is a History Tour with drinking, not a pub crawl.
