There are two ways to kick off or finish a baseball game: beer and French fries. The newly opened Ice House Tavern, which has taken over the old Via space at 18th and Wynkoop, has both—in great supply. The restaurant forgoes the standard fry (golden potato and salt) for generous portions of gourmet varieties, like rib-rub spiced fries with blue cheese ranch dressing, sticky sweet potato ones glazed with ginger and sprinkled with sesame seeds, and thick-cut steak fries with sea salt and vinegar.

Pair the snacks with a hoppy Sierra Nevada, Deschutes organic amber, or Ice House’s own ale—all of which come in 16- or 20-ounce glasses or by the pitcher—and enjoy the combination out on the breezy patio. Before or after a game, there’s not much more you could want.
