Rivers with Liquer Stores, Bars or Micro Breweries within walking Distance of Take-ou

Rivers with Liquor Stores, Bars or Micro Breweries within walking Distance of Take-out.

Interesting conversation at Mountain Toad after a day of powder.
I own all the guide books and this important piece of beta is usual not included. Please add to list.


Idaho: Main Fork take-out in Riggins
NF Payette & SF Payette take-ouy in Banks
Upper NF Payette (Carbonton?) to bar at Smiths Ferry
Lochsa: long version to Three Rivers Resort
Lower Selway: to Three Rivers Resort

Colorado: Lower Clear Creek; take-out in Golden
Upper Clear Creek: takeout at Kermits (RIP)
Arkansas: Pine Creek/Numbers all the way to Eddyline in BV
Arkansas: Browns all the way to Salida
Arkansas: Royal Gorge to downtown Cannon City
Animas: Durango City Run
Boulder Creek: to Pearl Street or the new Brew Pub at 38th & Arapahoe
Lower Roaring Fork to Glenwood
Colorado: Shoshone to Glenwood
Eagle: Numerous options in Vail, Edwards, Wolcott and Eagle
Platte: Confluence Park


Then there are the rivers where the bar is at a good lunch stop:

Poudre: Mishiwawa Inn (sp?)
Roaring Fork / Slaughterhouse: Woody Creek Grill
Platte: Platte River Yacht Club

You're in the first step: admitting you have a problem. The second step has to do with acknowledging your need for a liver transplant.

Paradise Lodge on the Rogue

It may not be near the take-out, but Paradise Lodge on the Rogue river is tough to beat. But you better bring cash!

Don't forget the Milk Run of the Ark. Put in at BV and take out at the River Runners Bar and Grill.

Canon City, end of the Royal Gorge run. Take out at Centennial Park, not the Pink House takeout. Can walk downtown about 3 blocks to Royal Gorge Brewing Company. Killer food and an incredible brewmaster.
Little more than walking distance, but if you run Bighorn Canyon and take out at parkdale, stop at the top of 8 mile hill. Whitewater Bar and Grill, owned by a former guide and current owner of Royal Gorge Rafting. They'll be running pics of days rafting runs through the Gorge.

Rich…..the Main is not a Fork it is the Main. The Main Salmon. Whatever, but it is not a fork. And on the Main there are so many bars you would not believe. Near a takeout? Well you can take out at any of those bars.
Headwaters. Redfish to Upper Stanley. Walk to the Kasino Klub. 3 blocks.
Upper to Lower Stanley. Bridge Street. About 10 steps.
Lower Stanley to Sunbeam. They usually have beverages up the hill seasonally.

Sunbeam to Torrey's Hole. 1/4 mile from the takeout. Open seasonally. Many, many 12 packs for swimmers have been purchased at this store.

Torrey's to Clayton. 2 or 3 bars about 100 yards from the river…..and it just keeps going all the way to Corn Creek like that.

Yep, Main Salmon, not the Main Fork Salmon. Downside of posting after an evening in a brewpub. Also did not realize Stanley had two takeouts.

Doing a North Fork to Riggins run this June any bars I need to know about?
Already planning a Guinnesse Float at Buckskin Bill's / Five Mile Bar.
