Your Handy Guide to Coors Field’s Bites and Brews

Not every Major League ballpark has a brewery in-house or a mobile Chinese restaurant, but Denver's Coors Field does! Its array of dining options numbers more than 100, and the options cover everything from a quick hot dog to a sit-down meal with a cold beer.

One of the newest additions to the ballpark is Wok in the Park, a food cart that delivers egg rolls and chicken and vegetarian noodle bowls throughout section 150. It's a far cry from the traditional game-day fare of years' past!

Here are a few of Coors Field's dining highlights:

  • For a beer and a bite, head to Blue Moon Brewing Co. The nationally known Blue Moon name backs this in-house brewery, which brews many seasonal and limited-release batches in addition to the company's classic suds. It's the only place you can score a Rockies 20th Anniversary Ale, so take full advantage on game day.
  • Go Italian on game day at Wazee Market. From handcrafted, wood-baked pizzas to chicken parmesan pizzas, Wazee Market offers fresh, flavorful Italian fare right in Coors Field.
  • Grab a burger at Rockies-approved Helton Burger Shack. Helton offers classic ballpark grub: burgers, fries, onion rings, and milkshakes.
  • Reserve a table in the fresh air at Mountain Ranch Club. Diners can enjoy the game from the two-tiered patio at Mountain Ranch Club if they make a single or season-long reservation ahead of time. Each table is outfitted with a personal TV.

Interested in watching a game and grabbing a bite? Check out the Coors Field website for this season's schedule and more information about concessions.

Clyfford Still Museum: Honoring An Important Artist

Clyfford Still brought the art of abstract expressionism to the West Coast, and his best works are housed at a Denver museum bearing his name. In his will, Still stated that his entire estate should be given to an American city for a museum that would focus entirely on his work. Denver was lucky enough to get that estate, which includes the works from the estate of Still’s widow.

The collection includes over 800 paintings from all eras of Still’s career, including his student and Depression-era works. His first move into abstraction are also included in the collection, moving into his works of “high” abstract expressionism. A rotating exhibit will further educate visitors on the abstract expressionist movement.

The Clyfford Still Museum is open Tuesdays through Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Fridays until 8 p.m.
