The day got off to an ominous start as it rained heavily until about 30 minutes before the game was supposed to start. But, after a short delay it was clear from then on. Coors Field is a beautiful stadium located pretty close to what I'd call the downtown Denver area. In what feels appropriate for Colorado there are several brew pubs around the stadium area worthy of a pregame meal or adult beverage. Micro brews are also available inside the stadium, which is certainly a unique option especially when considering the stadium is named after a not-so-micro brewery.
Coors Field is an open-air stadium, which is always my preference. On the upper deck there is a row of seats that is purple. This row is at 5,280 feet above sea level, which is exactly one mile. I found all of the seats that I tested out to be quality seats with good views. Really one of my favorite ballparks. And had it been a clear day I'm sure I'd have had a view of the mountains from some of the seat locations. Sadly, it was cloudy and gloomy until after dark when suddenly the night became near perfect conditions.
