(Visited 03/2015): Big Choice Brewing is located in an industrial/warehouse area of Broomfield on West 118th not too far off 36. There is street parking and a small lot next to the building.

The exterior shares the industrial feel of the neighborhood and has a small patio, and inside opens to a small tap room with a short wooden bar on the right and a few tables occupying the rest of the space. Cozy with reddish-orange walls and hanging Christmas lights. There is a board listing the available beers and wooden tap handles behind the bar.

Big Choice has 8 beers on tap, and flights are available. On my visit the selections included an ESB, a couple IPAs and Amber Ales, Black IPA and a BA Stout. The beers were all pretty average. There are also canned beers available to go in a fridge at the end of the bar, including ApreShed Winter Ale on my visit.

Service at the bar on a Friday afternoon was friendly and knowledgeable, and the staff clearly has fun at their job. They also gave us a buy one/get one card to pass along.

The tap room does not offer food.

Overall this is a very DIY and fun tap room, and I would probably visit again despite the quality of the beers not being on par with some of the better breweries in the area.

Big Choice is in an industrial park. The tasting room is tiny with a maximum occupancy of 21. Theyíve loaded miniscule space with personality though. Big Choice loves their punk rock, as do I, and it makes for a fun atmosphere. Definitely more interesting than listening to the Eagles on repeat. There were a few regulars in that were super friendly and everyone at the bar was having conversation and a good time. The bartender was great too. I havenít had much from Big Choice, just the poblano stout and the marzen. Both of those I really enjoyed. Neither have flaws or off flavors and are quite drinkable. The tap room had 8 taps and three cans. A food truck was here on a Wednesday cooking up some grub. I had a great time in this teeny punk rock brewery and will try to get back up here sometime.

Small warehouse style brewery in a somewhat rundown industrial park area. Inside is a nice bar and a few tables with the brewing area through the door in the back. 8 house beers on tap and I found all of them to be pretty good with the porter and winter ale tasting fantastic. No food, but two guys had pizza delivered while I was there. Nice staff. Instead of asking for tips, they just ask that you help spread the word about the brewery and give you a buy one pint get one free ticket to pass along to a friend; awesome concept!

strange an unappealing location down the street from some junkyards and run down corners, the taproom is located inside a pre-fab sort-of commercial garage. seven taps of your typical American brewpub offerings. tried three and found none to my liking, all tasting like unclean homebrew. certainly NOT a destination worth seeking out, unless youíre intent on drinking beer you wonít enjoy.

Located in an industrial park in Broomfield and honestly, itís in just about the only shitty area of Broomfield. The tap room is fairly small and could use a few more tables. The beers were mediocre, but you can get a taster tray for $4. The folks running the place seemed nice enough but I didnít get anything too special on my first trip.

Shitters: C-

Outside it kinda looks like an industrial garage. Even getting to it takes you past some grungy area of Broomfield, dirt roads, small auto repair places, etc. But once youre inside thereís this cozy local feel to it, like a renovated garage for the neighbors to gather. Their inside space is kinda lacking, but they have some tables out front for patio drinking. Average craft beer pricing, and some ok beer. But their standout is the Red. Get yourself a pint of that bad boy.
