Visited November 2012.

Nice location right by the river, in a nice neighborhood, and walkable from down town. This should be a nice place but the service didnít seem to care about serving me. I didnít stick around all that long as a result. The atmosphere was enjoyable though so long as you donít have to order a drink. This seems to be another automotive type business thatís been repurposed into a brewery (like Renegade and Hogshead) which works because they have a lot of windows letting in a lot of light and allowing customers to look outside rather than be confined to the dank dark smoke filled bar. The beers were all at least decent with the Summit Sunrise being my favorite followed by the graham cracker porter. It was interesting that they had two different pumpkin beers on tap.

2011: typical american brewpub experience: 6-7 taps and pub food. thankfully no televisions or loud music. fun young crowd. beer quality isnít anything special but theyíre trying and hopefully will improve with time. 2012: they didnít improve. they got worse. their beer is inexcusably bad and they show no signs of working to improve their quality, instead willing to spend it putting lime leaves and pomegranate in some hefeweizen. theyíre packed at happy hour, big surprise. Denver peeps continue to baffle me with their appreciation and support of terrible microbreweries.

large warehouse location with quite a few beers on tap. unfortunately, a few chili beers. beer quality on the whole was subpar, but that didnít stop the place from being packed on a wednesday night. lots of seating inside (high tops and the bar) and outside (picnic tables). service was okay as we just ordered taster trays at the bar. wouldnít mind coming back for the atmosphere and the ticks, but itís not a place iíd care to really drink the beer.

This is nice, open air brewery/bar in Denver. While they did not sell food, they did have a food truck offering some pretty good food on a busy Friday night during GABF week. The beers are fresh and are rotating quickly.

Sunday evening in August, this place had a decent crowd despite the placeís somewhat obscure location north of downtown. The bartender was attentive and knowledgeable, and the three beers I tried were all well above average. The open-aired tasting room was a great spot to finish my trip to Denver. Will be back.

I visited on a Wednesday afternoon and the large taproom as well as the large patio were bustling with people. The bartenders were working bar efficiently, which wasnít too difficult as there were four on staff. I had the rauchbier and their fresh hopped IPA which were both pretty good. A food truck was outside which is always handy to have. But it was labeled authentic Mexican tortas and they were selling Americanized Tex Mex sandwiches, but that is a totally different rant and not relevant to Denver Beer Company. I got a growler of the fresh hop and was happy with that. This was a very solid visit and one of the busier breweries Iíve been to

I really enjoy this new brewery. Their rotate their taps quite often and their beers so far have been quality products. The atmosphere is pretty cool- this summer theyíve had the garage doors open and let the fresh air inside. It could get a little toasty here in the summer but Iíve never had a problem when Iíve been there. Iíd definitely recommend it to be a part of a Denver brewery/beer tour.

These guys are keeping quite busy while pumping out a ton of new shitty beers. Quality = poor.

Shitters: B

(Final update - may well stop coming here - beer quality is now consistent, but sadly, it is consistently bad - the worst part is that they do not seem to care - their loyal customers donít know shit about beer and will gladly guzzle down pints of their crappy hefeweizens and stouts - so where is the incentive to improve? - also, servers have become distant and far too cool for me) Update 2 - still like coming here, but it is often too crowded - also, beer quality, rather than improving, seems to be declining (Been coming about twice a month - relaxed vibe, good people, live music on Sunday afternoons - new beers all the time, which is good if you are a ticker, but sadly, quality is spotty as a result - would probably be best if they slowed down on cracking out new beers and focused on quality) Stopped in here this afternoon for their grand opening - great location on Platte St., nestled between the LoDo and LoHi neighborhoods - a stoneís throw from My Brotherís Bar, Colt and Gray and Paris on the Platte (nice coffee shop) - the space itself is nice - converted auto shop, so plenty of space - open and airy - the bar is beetle kill pine, which is a nice touch - quite a bit of outdoor seating, with large wooden picnic tables conducive to socializing - they were fairly busy for early afternoon on opening day, but the three servers did a fair job of keeping up - they were friendly and attentive - six beers currently on tap, but they have a dozen tap lines and it is my understanding that they intend to keep them filled as well as they can - they seem to specialize in unique twists on standard styles (lime wheat, Graham cracker porter) - beers ranged from average to good - average prices on the beer (1 dollar samples and 5 bucks for full beers, ranging in size based on style) - seems like once they get rolling that should be making consistent, solid products - only food served is soft pretzels, but they have a long list of local food trucks and carts that plan to park in front nights and weekends - I will probably stop in often, as I am frequently in this part of town - no hours posted on their website, as I believe they are still debating what they are going to be - a nice spot and a welcome addition to the local beer scene.

Camons  (352) Hasselager, Denmark | March 6, 2012
Big industrial / varehouse kindof building, large outdoor beer garden. Huge bar and a good amount of seating inside. Huge crowd when i visited, whenever it was the superb sunny early marts wheather, the live music or the beer had people coming. 7 beers on tap, good sized samples at 1$ each, decent to good quality. Nice service and pairly priced. Would like to come back a less crowded time.
