Where to Watch the Game in Telluride?

Monday • September 23, 2013

With football season in full swing, finding the perfect spot to watch your favorite team play can be a chore.  Check out the top 3 places to watch "the game" in Telluride:  

1. The Brown Dog - This family friendly sports bar in heart of downtown Telluride is perhaps one of the most popular places to watch your favorite sports teams.  With more than 8 big screens, 9 different flavors of wings, and the #1 pan pizza in the world (according to the palates of the 2013 International Pizza Expo judges in Las Vegas as well as hungry locals) there's no reason this restaurant/bar shouldn't be at the top of the list.  Wolverine fans will feel right at home as co-owner Jeff Smokevich played football on the notorious 1997 National Championship team at Michigan University and was a teammate of Tom Brady.  Boston fans will also feel welcomed as other owner Dan Lynch isn't afraid to hide the fact that his favorite teams come from New England.  If you are looking for a fun spot to eat delicious food and catch the game The Brown dog will certainly not disappoint.   

2. Smuggler's Brewpub - This brewpub has plenty to offer on game day including 16 flat screen TV's,  16 different beers on tap, and an array of entrees and appetizers including the famous double fried hot wings.  Smuggler's has been serving up handcrafted brews out of their basement brewery for over a decade.  Located just steps away from the gondola on the corner of San Juan Avenue and Pine Street this brewpub is a favorite amongst both locals and visitors. 

 3. The Cornerhouse Grille - This local watering hole is a hidden gem for the budget concious sports fanatic that wants to get away from the crowds.  On Sunday's you can get a Bloody Mary and PBR sidecar for only $3.  Need to get your tater tot fix while you watch the game?  No problem...Locals rave over the tater tots, Philly cheese steaks, and fish tacos.  Head to the corner of Columbia and N. Fir street to enjoy 10 flat screen TV's, hearty bar food, and the ultimate local Telluride vibe.
