All those wintry escapades will undoubtedly leave you jonesing for a craft brew. Colorado is home to around 230 craft breweries, but my favorite of them all is located right here in Ouray. Mr. Grumpy Pants Brewing Company (also known as Ourayle House) is an absolute must stop – just make sure to leave your pretentions at the door. The chief brewer (and heckler) is Mr. Grumpy Pants himself. He’ll pour you a drink – when he gets around to it – and serve it with a frown. And if you ask for the small size, you get it in a baby bottle, you wimp. Sarcasm runs deep here, so if you’re easily offended, don’t read any of the dozens of handwritten signs Mr. Grumpy has hanging around the bar. If you’re looking for a place to sit and have a friendly chat with a local brewer, this isn’t it. But if you’re looking for a unique, quirky place to grab a beer, get grumpy with it.
