I did a brew on premise beer & wine. Itís just like brewing in a garage or warehouse as there isnít a kitchen or anything like that. They are very disorganized and what should have been about 3 hours took all day. Also, I didnít even do any of the brewing. The recipe used for my beer (a Murphyís clone) was just made up on the spot and didnít achieve the correct extract from the grains. The solution was to just throw in some sugar to make up for it. Once bottled it tasted watered down. My wine was from a kit, so that was really easy. I just went down to bottle it today and just as I was getting ready to load up my full bottles in my car they demanded 20% of it (6 out of 30 bottles). This is after paying $150 for the wine kit and another $55 for them to take care of it for me while it was fermenting. In short, I donít recommend them. They seem far more interested in starting a brewery than running a great brew on premise or home brew shop. Their prices are about 10-20% higher than the Denver metro area and the selection is about half of most shops in Denver. The staff seems knowledgeable, but thatís the only thing they have going. Also, if you look at their website the pictures are the old store. The new one is in an industrial area and really is next to a radiator shop. It is very bizzare.

They moved from their previous location to the old Blicks Brewing building. As of now, they are still doing the homebrewing/winemaking thing but will be brewing as Rocky Mountain Brewery later this year. The staff is well beyond helpful and knowledgeable. Even if you do not see what you need on the shelf, ask, they probably do in fact have it.
