I spent a couple of days in RiNo earlier in the year. I'm still writing my notes up but I remember enjoying Epic, Our Mutual Friend and Black Shirt. The beers were a little more variable at the latter two, but mainly pretty good.

As a local these would be my recs to keep you from wasting time on mediocre suds, of which there is a lot:
-Hogshead as previously noted...this is basically my 'local'
-Call to Arms (solid line up across the board and on the same side of town as Hogshead and Hops and Pie)
-Ratio in RiNo
-Bierstadt Lagerhouse in RiNo just for a Slow Pour Pils if nothing else
-Black Project for sours/wilds

Hit me up if you or Leighton are out..especially in NW Denver. I will likely be at Ratman's Strange release but not sure when.

Bierstadt had awesome traditional lagers. Pleasant surprise and a cool place.
Black Project is pretty new I think - only a few beers, but all good sours.

I'd highly recommend Bierstadt and Hogshead. Hogshead is traditional English style beer, mostly on proper cask conditioning. Bierstadt is almost all lagers done very very well.

I was there several years ago before Trve and Black Project. For brewpubs, I really liked Yak and Yeti. It's an Indian/Tibetan/Nepalese brewpub. Food was fantastic and when I went they had it buffet style. Beers were solid back then too. Not sure about now.

I didn't like TRVE at all. I don't know if it is the stvpid way they spell their name, or the death metal, but their beers were not good.

Comrade. I always hit Comrade when back home.
Also like Urusla as close to family and they seem to have an interesting barrel program. Bierstadt is awesome

Check out De Steeg. Strange Craft is great too!
