Long dark room. Long bar. Long table at the front. Open into the brewery. Too loud heavy rock making it difficult to hear anything else. 13 taps. A few bottled beers. Good beer. Fair prices. Quick and friendly staff with a lot of tatoos and piercings. Too noisy for my taste.
To be served with such speed and humor when it was absolutely packed impressed me. METAL as fuck? Perhaps. I enjoyed the theme, but wish the volume was lower as the friend I tried to talk with was a low talker and I could barely here her. Had but the one pint, but thoroughly enjoyed.
Great place! I stopped in here during a recent vacation to Denver, CO. Big long shotgun style bar, all of the beers I tried were very good, and the bartender was actually from the midwest. I thoroughly enjoyed the wide offering when considering the limited amount of brewing space. Even though Iím not dressed like a metal or punk dude, Iíve been in enough of those establishments to realize that the only person who would be uncomfortable with my attire would be myself. So if youíre reading this - donít let that deter you and stop by this place!

Visited GABF week. A very small storefront but the place is larger than it appeared from outside. I felt out of place here, in my polo shirt, sans body ink. Iím not into the death metal theme at all, and they take it far with the altar above the bar. Service was friendly. Ambiance is dark and loud. I wouldnít go here if I wanted conversation.

Ambiance and service get high marks. Death metal + beer = solid. Really cool spot with Amazing art on the walls. Service was really efficient & friendly. The beers were pretty bad though, which is too bad given the rest of the package.
Gothic themed brewery. Cool art. Definitely not for everyone, music is typically loud metal and it is dark inside. Seating is limited, but service has always been good. Iíve enjoyed a number of their beers. Iíll be back.
Stopped in and grabbed a few bottles. There is a large banquet style table upon walking in, and to your right are the barrels. The bar is in the back and the place gets darker and the music louder the further you walk in. Not too many people seemed to be sitting at the bar, most were in the more well lit (quieter) area of natural light towards the front. The place seemed to have a decent volume of business for being 2:30 in the afternoon in a ghetto area of the city. The staff was attentive and greeted me right away. They had full knowledge of all their beers and took the time to talk to me about them all before ringing me up for my bottles. The prices seemed a bit high, $9.00 for a 375ml, and $16 for a 750ml... Not my type of ambiance, but the service was good. I have not cracked a beer yet, but if it is as good as the service I will go back to buy bottles, just not the type of place or neighborhood I care to hang out in.
Good brewery, really nice beer. Music is niche and its nice that itís only played in the bar area. The front tables are long and provide some shelter for the ears

Metal theme interior. Packed with Denver beer geeks drinking under-attenuated sugar sludge beer. Honestly I could not find one beer that didnít hurt my teeth. They list a lot of styles around 5% which given the American malt goopiness and sweetness level you would expect to find in something like Double IPA or Barley Wine. Alas, the beer sucks but the regulars donít seem to care. And the metal theme? Iím a huge death metal fan, but all I heard was grungy sludge rock stuff. I unfortunately visited during the release of some ridiculous black sour geek beer which was being swirled and sniffed and gulped to no end. Such a beer is a testament to their dedication to throw all sorts of stupid ingredients together and market the release as rare to drum up support of the local. Dedication to mashing? to fermentation? to quality ingredients? lol.
