DENVER, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Visitors come to Denver for numerous experiences, from citywide conventions to access to world-class skiing, shopping, arts and entertainment. The city has it all. But more and more, visitors are coming for the beer!
Not only is the Mile High City home to the world's largest single brewery, but it also has the nation's largest brewpub, the highest number of home brewers and is host to the Great American Beer Festival, the brewing industry's most prestigious event of the year. And Denver is not alone. Throughout Colorado, there are more breweries per capita than any other state, making Colorado the "Napa Valley" of beer. On any given day, there are over 100 beers that are made and sold only in Colorado.
With the recent opening of the Yard House, the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel has become Denver's Best Beer Hotel. The Yard House is known for the world's largest selection of draft beer, with over 130 tap handles. Guests can sip their favorite draft beer from the popular half yard, traditional pint or six pack samplers which can be paired with more than 100 menu items. Katie Mullen's Irish Restaurant and Pub is Denver's largest Irish pub and pours more Guinness than any other pub in Colorado! Katie's has just installed one of Ireland's most unique imports yet, an automatic beer dispensing unit that is an all-in-one beer tapping system and circular table that allows customers to pour their own beer at their own table whenever they choose. 16Mix Cocktail Lounge, an ultra modern bar, features 12 tap handles offering a variety of Colorado's finest brews. With Katie Mullen's, 16Mix and the Yard House combined, there are more varieties of beer poured under the Sheraton roof than any other hotel in the state.
"The Sheraton Denver Downtown has become a one-stop shop for meeting planners who want to plan a unique meeting or tourists who want a great location," states Maria Maxwell, the Sheraton Denver Downtown's director of sales & marketing. She continued that even the hotel's executive chef is an amateur home brewer.
The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel is located at 1550 Court Place. The hotel features over 135,000 square feet of meeting space, 1235 guestrooms and is located on Denver's most popular tourist destination, the world famous 16th Street Pedestrian Mall.
