Locals and tourists who have enjoyed a tipple from Mythology Distillery while in Steamboat Springs can now grab a drink straight from the source.
This summer, Mythology relocated from its longtime home in Denver to the mountain town where it operates a new, larger production facility and a cocktail bar with additional amenities. Meanwhile, Lyons-based liquor purveyor Spirit Hound Distillers is coming down from altitude and taking over Mythology’s former home in the Mile High City.
Thirsty yet? Here are the details of both new tasting rooms so you can plan your next happy hour.

Founder and president Scott Yeates has lived in Steamboat Springs since 2017, so moving his distillery there was a natural fit. However, the new space also affords Mythology room to grow.
The company, known for its original whiskeys and gins, now boasts a 5,000-square-foot building that houses both the distillery and cocktail bar, a 5,000-square-foot rackhouse for aging whiskeys and plenty of outdoor space in the so-called “whiskey garden” to host guests and, occasionally, live music. Yeates is also preparing to up the fun factor by installing several kid- and adult-friendly slides outside.
Cocktail options include several iterations of the Old Fashioned and gin-and-tonic, and the bar also serves local craft beer and wine. In the coming months, Mythology will also open a restaurant onsite called Asian Soup Dumplings, inspired by Yeates’ and his wife’s travels to Southeast Asia.
