Looking for Raft Trip near Denver

We are looking for a class II-III river (5'ish miles) near Denver that allows private rafters and beer. This trip is for the company where I work and we have a boat. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Don't know if beer is legal but 470 to confluence, you will see all kinds of urban wildlife and river trolls under the bridges

The Pumphouse run on the Upper CO is the only beer run I can think of near Denver (if you call 2 hrs away "near"). Nothing on the Poudre or Ark really screams Beer Run to me.

Did this 2 years ago at 2500 cfs in small cats and it was a blast.
Scary looking man made drops, scarier looking campers (seems all the good camps were taken) and fast fun water. BYO beer, only a few bars
near the river. Below confluence park just call a cab for the shuttle.

???What???

Here's how you fix this problem. Get a coozy, put a string around it, hang it around your neck, then you can oar and drink at the same time. We have all donated enough beer to the river gods.

I have actually witnessed tubers do this, though the string around his neck was attached to a bag that had his beers in it. He probably should have worn shoes too since he lost his tube in Mad Dog.
