Located in a warehouse, it is all about the beer, a great hangout for home brewers as there is a supply shop & always someone willing to discuss the art of brewing beer. A good selection of Rocky Mtn standards along with rotating seasonal brews. Rocky Mtn likes to try new recipes so your likely to find a batch of something new if you take the time to find this brewery.

Kind of shitty, warehouse atmosphere with an attached homebrew shop. Bartenders/brewers are always very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to talk to. Beers are of varying qualities. Some of their gimmick beers are fun to try. One of my preferred stops in CS. Plus there’s a tit club across the street!

This is a brewery first and a tasting room second. Not a convenient location unless, like me, you are staying in a hotel near the airport and want some good fresh beer. You can bring in your own food as well. Service was good. Maybe 8 beers on tap. All were solid. I will visit again one of these days.

Went out of my way to come here because they seem to be doing some creative things - the stuff I do not like: The location suuuuucks! - way out in the outskirts of Springs - aside from the brewery, the only things on this road are a lumber yard, and RV park and a strip club - the stuff I am ambivalent about: The space itself - it’s like someone threw a brewery up in a garage and then, at the last minute, decided he was going to throw a bar in there as well, with tables that look like they were stolen from a chinese food restaurant and counters and light up signs that give the place a redneck bar kind of feel - it sort of feels like I am hanging out in someone’s half-finished basement - the up side is that there is a decent amount of space, as well as a patio with a guy selling BBQ out of a truck - The good stuff: These folks are obvious beer geeks that love what they are doing, and just love craft beer in general - they are super friendly and fairly attentive - the beer selection is decent and the products are creative and fun - I only tried a few brews, since I have just been to Trinity, but what I had was well-made and obviously lovingly crafted - prices are awesome (3.75 a pint, 8.50 a growler, etc.) - not a place I would run back to, but the beer is great - I wish they distributed more widely, because I would frequent any Denver bar that sold their brews.

Warehouse type setting with homebrew shop attached. Staff was very friendly and attentive, especially the owner (Duane). Nice selection of styles of beer, with some unique beers. I tried the Smoked Hefe, Green Chile, and the IPA. Also sampled a beer w/ curry, which was interesting. Good prices. Didn’t try the food that was available. A little bit of a drive from where I live near downtown, but it was worth the trip and I will definitely be back soon.

Open wrehouse space, not much decor. Service was good despite the crowd at the grand opening. Beer selection was fair with 4 or 5 beers but this was the opening day. Pretty good prices. Visited 6-8 months ago.

RSRIZZO and I stopped by and found Duane serving us and answering as many questions as possible. Much better on their beer than Blick’s. Seems like a decent selection of homebrew supplies. They do get busy so the service was a bit lacking.

So Duane has expanded his home brew shop and brew on premise business to include a brewery. He purchased the building and equipment from Blick’s Brewing and about two years later began brewing his own, for sale that is. This is a rather industrial, garage shop type atmosphere with people coming in all doors to drink, bull shit, buy brewing ingredients, and brew on premise. The guys seem to always be running here or there so your glass may sit empty for a few minutes before you are allowed a refill. I would venture to guess that this is probably the best place in Colorado Springs to come and talk home brew, as Duane and his staff have been brewing for many decades, often with off-the-wall concoctions, see Coconut Curry Hefeweizen. Patrons are welcome to order delivery and Duane has a stash of a dozen or so menus to choose from. Across the street you can go support single moms, one dollar at a time.
