I love this place when it was Peter anda few boys. Now I canít stand the service or the people that frequent the place. I almost actually contacted the better Better Business Bureau about an incedent I had with them but I am just not ever going to go back and tell my friends about how shitty I was treated there. Sorry Peter but your Brewery is losing its potency and I dinít even want to stick around to watch it burn. Thanks for the good beer in the early years but you lost this customer and a few others that are close to this guy.
Hard to find the place. You can see the sign on the building but itís rather hard to actually find the entrance. You have to go through a cider bar that was closed when we got there into the actual Big Beaver establishment. Small area. Bar on the left side with a few seats and a bit larger seating area on the right with a big TV. Definite bar feel. No bottles available but quite a few beers on tap. Courteous staff. My sister got a free half pint for buying a shirt. Nice tasting beers.
Kind of a weird location in the back of an office building in west Loveland. A little cramped with an odd crowd. Decent number of beers on tap, most were pretty average. They have live music occasionally. Not a bad place to stop after hiking west of town.
I didnít originally believe this place existed, but Aaron insisted, so we went. Weird set up in sort of an office space where you might expect an accountant or dentist to be. Thereís a cidery in the front part of the space (Blown Spoke) and the brewery in the back. The beers at this place all have stupid 6th grade sex jokes in the names and the quality of the beer is equivalent. I guess the only saving grace is that if youíre a ticker, they have 16 beers.
Lordy. This place is built entirely around marketing. Shirts, thongs, and hats with the borderline NC17 logo to promote the 16 ridiculous beer names. The beers are a complete afterthought Iím guessing. I could imagine these guys sitting down and writing a list of obnoxious names and then trying to find beers to match. Almost all the beers were no better than mediocre. There were two or three that were decent but the other 13, no thanks. The server was nice and flights were reasonably priced but I wouldnít seek any of these beers out again. Mayor Ratman197 can have them.
Seriously weak shit here. Let me start off by saying you walk into this place through a business complex, complete with cubicles and dingy carpet. Then you arrive at the bar where you meet 16 taps of below-average beers, with some that are just plain terrible. Service was fine, but the bartender knew absolutely nothing about the beers being offered or how they were made. Crowd was very trashy, complete with an 85 year-old woman telling the bartender he was (and I quote), "Young fun, and full of cum." I guess I shouldnít complain, as this fits in perfectly with the sexual innuendos associated with every beer here. If all you are looking for is a place with quite a few ticks then stop by, but otherwise, scroll past this place and check out Grimm Brothers or Loveland Alewerks instead.
The Beaver has been one of my favorite top spots to hang out recently since Iíve moved to Loveland. It has a great local and friendly feel to its ambiance. With its selection of 16 beers on tap there is something for everyone! The service was great as well, as the servers helped me select which beers I wanted to add to my tasting flight! I ended up loving the Scottish Ale, Brown Ale, and the Beaver Stubble Stout, along with some others! They have brats & munchies too to snack on.. I would defiantly recommend this place if you are looking for great beers and a good relaxing time!
Several of my friends recommended the Beaver and now I know why. I was floored by the selection of beers (17 great beers on tap). Everything from very approachable beers such as Belgium Ale, German wheat, north England brown, Irish stout, a California pale ale, nice IPA, and an easy to drink Pilsner, to crazy beers such as bourbon stout, chili beer, espresso beer, and a fruit beer. To top it off they have a great double IPA "the Big Woody" which was my favorite and a Scottish, a black lager, a black IPA, and a Belgium triple winter warmer. The beers were all distinct from one another. How the hell do they do it in such a small place? Which leads me to the ambiance which was great. It looks like they shoe horned a brewery in a garage. I heard the beer brats were good, so I had one and I must say It was the best brat Iíve had. The beer mustard they make for the brats is great and so is the gourmet sauerkraut that is made locally. I totally enjoyed this place.
Stopped by in the middle of the afternoon. Not too busy. Staff was very friendly. Had a flight of 10 house beers. Think there is potential here. Interested in what I thought of their efforts.

One of my least favorite breweries in Northern Colorado. Itís run out of what looks like a storage shed and a lot of their beers are mediocre. I didnít get very good service when I was there. Pass it by for Grimm Bros.
