Small strip mall brewery specializing in Gluten Free beer, I think thereís a lot of adjunct / specialty grain use, because some of the beer tastes like sweet potatoes and molasses. Wadsworth Ave is a pretty depressing location, and the beer isnít good enough to ever bring me back.

Small location in a strip mall @ Wads and 44th. 16 beers on tap, I have tried about 7 and they have all been pretty good, especially their DIPA. Lots of high ABV stuff if youíre into that. Average ambiance and good, friendly service. Worth checking out for sure.

Rickoliís is in a strip mall and theyíve done pretty well with the space. Thereís crazy art on the walls, plenty of seating at the bar and at tables, a TV, free popcorn and animal crackers for snacks. . The bartender was very friendly and enthusiastic, but not beer geek-level on the knowledge. That doesnít bother me. There were over a dozen taps available with mostly hardline American styles e.g., hoppy pale, IPA, IIPA, imperial stout, American strong, chili ale, etc. I sampled three of their brews and just wasnít impressed. The hop monsters they touted were fairly bitter with moderately strong hop profiles, but not at all on the level of IIPAís from several other breweries around town. The imperial stout was nice, but had a lactic sourness to it. They remove the gluten from nearly all of their beers and I find it hard to believe that doesnít compromise the integrity of these ales. I thought my visit was decent overall, but there are numerous breweries around town with equal to better ambiance and pouring superior brews.

Brewery in a strip mall off of Wadsworth in Wheat Ridge. About 12-15 beers on tap all of their own creation. Cheap tasters and pints but abnormally expensive growlers. Itís a cool place to stop and check out.

This is a nice neighborhood brewery in the Denver metro area of Wheat Ridge. There are many house beers available along with a cask offering. Rick was on hand to chat us up and show us around his brewery. There were also plenty of locals staked out around the room, seemingly having made this their nightly stop. This is a nice place to spend all or part of your evening, snacking on the popcorn or pork skins, or ordering in from a local eatery.

Small well lit space in a strip mall.The service is usuall pretty good but can be slow at times when theyíre busy. They keeparound 16 beers on which is amazing considering they only have 2 halh barrel brewing systems. there are snacks available but you canm bring in or order in food from outside. Not a bad place to visit.

Ok so this place is in a strip mall and the interior is dingy and feels like a college dorm room/sports bar. Band music and country playing in the background. With that said it is a family joint and the service is good - everyone is extremely frinedly and eager to chat about the beer. The beer was pretty solid for the most part with a few complete misses. Nothing will blow you away, but you can tell the owner knows how to make a decent beer. They donít really serve food, unless you count warm pretzels, animal crackers and popcorn. This place is definitely not a destination and I dont know that I would go as far as to say it is a place to stop on a trip to Denver, but if you are near the area check it out and I am sure you will find some decent beers.

Strip mall brewery just west of Denver - the strip mall is pretty dingy - not very inviting from the outside - limited exterior signage, so hard to find - interior is not all that inviting either - bare concrete floors - a popcorn machine - decent amount of seating - pretty much no decor - not exactly cozy - family owned and operated - folks working are either all related or practically related - very friendly and attentive - a lot of beers on tap, but they have the standard brewpub kind of line up (pales, browns, stouts, ipas, double ipas ), so nothing all that exciting - however, what they do make they seem to do a fair job of making - if you love strong and/or hoppy brews (which I know a lot of you out in ratebeerland do), then this place just might be for you - nice folks and decent beer, but not my scene or style, so I probably wonít be back often.
