Great place. Fun atmosphere, great beers, fun but small tap room, with cool warehouse (where they hold the release tastings and barrel age their beer). Good staff serve the beer and are very knowledgeable. As you probably know the beer is great. One of the better places to hang and drink beer in Boulder!
Visited during GABF 2009. Arrived at opening time and tasting room was already filled with visitors. Spacious area with a gift shop and tasting room combined into one large area with a banquet room around the corner (that has windows to the barrel aging area of the brewery). Has a nice mountain resort feel to it. Staff were very attentive and friendly, served samples promptly and engaged us about the beers. Very impressive experience overall—we will definitely be back when we return to Colorado.

Cool little tasting area at the brewery. Hard to find as it’s in an industrial park. Went during 2009 GABF so it was crowded. Lots of one-off beers available-all good stuff. Staff was friendly and helpful.
GABF ’09. What a great experience; nice staff, great and varied selection of their beers (some staples, some one-offs) and a buffet that was not advertised. Visited here 3 times during the week and found new beers each time. A must-visit if you’re in the Denver area. I will be back again someday.

Stopped here today - it’s GABF weekend, so my experience might be exceptional, but I plan to come back often, so we will see - I have been to many breweries in industrial parks, but I must say that this is the nicest one I’ve seen - very cozy indoor bar area, with lots of dark wooden tables - the bathroom had a changing table, which is great for the beer nerd couple with a baby - quite a few outdoor tables - about ten beers on tap, many of them brewery only specials (but again, GABF weekend) - samples and pints are reasonably priced - the staff was incredibly friendly, as was the crowd - we met a guy in the parking lot that, much like us, just moved here from New York - there really was nothing bad about this place at all - and even though they were crowded because of the festivities, they did a great job of keeping the line moving - a must stop place - even though I live in Denver, I will be coming back as often as I can.
The tour was fantastic and very educational. The guide new what they were talking about and portrayed that knowledge. The bartenders were also very knowledgeable and shared their expertise. These above noted aspects along with the quality beers created a great experience.
Great tap room in Bouder. A little hard to find but worth the search. The place is nice and it’s all about the beer. Staff is great and the tastings are really reasonable. Fantastic selection, always look forward to the cask and the speciaties. Their IPA is fantastic but nothing compares to the Maharaja for me.
