Obviously a local spot for homebrewers with the homebrew store next door. Nice location in the corner of a strip mall. Plenty of seating. Huge tap list but only a small takeout selection. Would be a nice place to hang out.

A neat theme for a brewery’s tap house. Everything is about seafaring vessels from the beer names to the way you receive a sampler to the decor. The beer was good, the service was fine but nothing truly stood out other than the theme. A fun time none-the-less!

Large place, lots on tap, but they are charging a premium price for mediocre beer.

This is home for me when it comes to breweries. It’s been a lot of fun watching this place grow from a tiny back door almost secret entrance to what it’s become today. It’s lost some of the early charm, but that comes from the success and demand they’ve generated. Now that they have a full canning production facility also located in Aurora, CO, I was able to pick up a 6 pack at one of my favorite liquor stores. Can’t go wrong with Dry Dock...

Flight of 6 3oz pours - $6 Pints range from $4-6 Growler fills start at $10 Attached home brew store. Staff is extremely helpful and willing to give tours. Brewers will sit and talk with you over a fresh pint. Food can be ordered for delivery (a binder with menus is provided).

Dry Dock is a fantastic place. If you find yourself in the Aurora area it’s a must-visit place. They have fantastic beer here. My favorite is the URCA Vanilla Porter (best Vanilla Porter I’ve ever had). If you come on a Friday afternoon they’ll have special limited casks they’ll tap as well which adds to the 12 or so choices they already offer daily. If you’re looking for food you won’t find it here (only popcorn) so bring some food with you or order some for delivery when you get there. The ambiance is good for a small tap room but it’ll get very loud if you come at peak times (this place gets packed). Value-wise it’s very good for what you get and you can get growler fills for $10 (minus the cost of the growler). The staff here is generally friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable (though there’s one guy that once threw a beer coaster at me for not putting my beer on one - I understand why he did it but it could have been done more tactfully). Overall, make sure you check this place out if you’re in the area. You won’t be disappointed.

Industrial setting but excellent use of space. Brewery in rear, bar lounge and seating at front, no-sun covered patio toward parking lot, and adjacent homebrew supply shop. Beer to go. Music too loud for conversation inside. Silent flatscreen TVs with NFL games. Free popcorn. No iced tea. Food delivery from local restaurants. Smokers on patio. All ages crowd, including families. Chalkboard with dozen draughts (not including GABF winners :( $4 pints, $10 growler fills. Nice neighborhood place for a strip mall venue.

Cool taproom decorated like a pirate ship, kind-of corny, but cool at the same time. Decent selection with a lot of pilot beers popping up from time to time and firkins on Fridays. No food, but free popcorn to hold you over. The staff is great and the people that frequent are pretty laid back. Flights are available and growler fills are pretty cheap. Try to stop by during a "down-time" because weekend nights are crazy busy. Check this place out.

Nice selection of Dry Dock beers. The servers were knowledgeable and friendly and the popcorn is free. Won a gold for best small brewery of the year. This is one worth finding while you are in Denver.
