Stopped by on a recent trip to Denver. A decent walk from Coors field, but manageable. Small tap room adjacent to brewery is clean and well-lit. Stopped in on a random Thursday, and it happened to be a barrel-aged bottle release. I was able to buy bottle #8. Seemed to be very under appreciated. The beers were pretty solid, with my favorites being the wit and the oaked wit. Bartender was very beer knowledgeable and very nice. Had a sampler and moved on. I look forward to hearing more about these guys in the future.

pretty tiny tasting room. a small l-shaped (sorta) bar and a few tables around the perimeter. lucky there’s some seating outside as well. they had about 8 beers on tap, with a lot of Belgian style/influenced beers. for the most part they are just okay without any of them really being terrible but none being very good either. the service here was helpful and friendly and the prices on the flights were pretty good, too.

A cool little spot, stopped in during GABF week. Nice ambiance and excellent service. They had a Belgian DIPA and a few barrel aged quads that were all really good. We were given a few freebies and a discount. I was impressed.

River North is one of the first breweries you would approach if leaving LoDo and traveling to RiNo. As such, it is in an industrial neighborhood with a few empty buildings around and plenty of street parking. Their tasting room is small with a few more seats outside. Not much is here other than seats, a bar and a few pictures on the wall. There is a pretty good view of the large brewing facility through a glass window. The beers are primarily Belgian style, 6 out of 8 to be an exact. An imperial stout and Black IPA were the exceptions. Most of beer was very good with the witbier being standout, mainly because it was so well done for the style. Their saison was also very good with the imperial stout solid enough to hold up to most others in the style. Beers are $5 across the board, pretty standard for any brewery in the area. Neat brewery to visit.

Small tap house on Blake near Coors Field and near five points. All of the beers on tap are River North, including a few of their more unusual options. Very nice and interesting place to stop by.

Pretty cool little tap room on Black Street. Food cart was outside with some hot dog fare. Beer was pretty good. Would like to go back and try more.

Visited November 2012.

This was my first stop in Denver. The place is small and doesn’t have a ton of advertising on the outside of the building. The inside is a smallish tasting room that was mostly filled with some dedicated locals boozing it up on a Sunday night. I noticed that there was a very large room behind the bar that had the brewing equipment in it and also had some tables set up. I asked why they don’t use that space too and apparently they do but during events. Seems like a lot of space to be paying for if you aren’t using it.The beers were alright and all were kind of strange, as in not to any particular style. I noticed that they have a collection of stickers from other breweries up on the wall above the table that I sat at. One of them was from a very local (to me) brewery called I&I who does not distribute and is located 1000 miles away. I struck up a conversation with the bartender about it and enjoyed myself over all even if the beers weren’t amazing. Nice location but probably not a regular stop for me.

Open air with some big beers on tap. Nothing under 6% when I was there. Nice space and helpful staff. If you’re looking for something sessionable, look elsewhere.

Open air, modern tap room with a hefty house beer selection on tap and in bottles. Quick, friendly service. No food but like many smart tap rooms, they have a symbiotic relationship with some excellent food trucks. BBQ truck while we were here was dope. Decent prices, tasters available. House beer quality was above average for some styles. Fun, local hangout in a beautiful regentrified part of town.

I like River North’s taproom. A solid location near downtown with lots of windows. Cool place with good beer.

Visited on October 12, 2012. Sampled four beers. Good service. Beers were OK to good for three of them the last was not for me at all and couldn’t finish it. Farily easy walk from Falling Rock where we started out.
