Wild Mountain Smokehouse and Brewpub in Nederland, CO is a fantastic place to go enjoy a nice patio, some good bbq, and a good handcrafted beer. You can really experience what life is like in the mountains in Colorado in this sleepy little town. For such a small town, there sure are some good restaurants, and a lot of happenings. There is plenty to do in the way of hiking, biking, kayaking, coffin races, etc. Head up up west of boulder about 20 miles and enjoy the outdoors.
Wild Mountain Smokehouse is right in “downtown” and can’t really be missed. It is easy to find, easy to get to, and the wait is not really all that long. Even if it is, you can walk around main street and it will totally be worth it. They have a selection of bbq sauces that will settle anyone’s cravings for heat, but also have some that are mild enough for the tamer palettes. Enjoy their sides too!
