Oskar Blues Grill & Brew

There seems to be a brewpub in every neighborhood now, but it’s rare to find one that does beer and food well. More often than not, you have to sacrifice one or the other. That’s why we’re still attached to our old standby, Oskar Blues, which has served hophead suds and Cajun-inspired dishes for years in Lyons. We’re suckers for the wings, but we always leave room for the shrimp po’boy and a side order of dirty rice. After dinner, head down to the basement for some live jam sessions that are heavy on blues and bluegrass. Our only gripe is the trek from Denver—but it’s a godsend on our way back from Estes Park and the mountains in the summer. 303 Main St., Lyons, 303-823-6685,
