Maybe it’s just because the algorithm knows me so well, but I cannot scroll Instagram without seeing these over-the-top milkshakes lately. I always wondered where you could get one, but now I know I won’t have to go far…

The Yard Milkshake Bar has a location in Denver at 1600 California St. Unit 2, near Target on the 16th Street Mall, downtown.

The Yard Milkshake Bar originated in Gulf Shores, Alabama, in 2017 and has since become a sensation on social media for its over-the-top milkshake creations. Viral photos show Yard milkshakes with donuts, licorice, cookies, cake, cereal, and brownies stacked high.

The Denver location is home to the exclusive “Rocky Mountain” shake. Made with “Happy Tracks and Cookies N’ Cream ice cream with marshmallow and chocolate drizzle in a chocolate iced jar rolled in chocolate rocks. Topped with whipped cream, Pop-tarts Frosted Cookies and Cream Peaks, chocolate rocks, and crushed Oreo cookies.” The Rocky Mountain shake has 1,812 calories.
