I had some time to kill before going to a BBQ at a friend’s place in Longmont, so I figured I would stop in here - one of the largest bar areas I’ve seen for a straight-up brewery (I’ve seen brewpubs with far less space and seating) - very cozy, ski lodge kind of atmosphere, with a handful of outdoor tables - there was an AHA meeting here when I visited, so it was crowded, but still easy to find a seat - pretty much all of their standard offerings were on tap, plus two or three tap only offerings (though I only stayed for a pint) - fairly standard prices for the region (1 buck a sample, 4-5 buck a pint) - reasonable growler prices (8-12 bucks) - casual, friendly vibe - not as kid-friendly as other breweries and brewpubs I’ve encountered so far in CO, but certainly a nice place - I would come back here again.
I enjoyed the atmosphere and the knowledgeable staff. There seemed to be plenty of room to accommodate large crowds. The beer selection was diverse and allowed me to experience the majority of their beers.
This was a great little brewery to do some drinking. The bartender, and other employees that had just finished work were all very knowledgeable about beer. I think they have outside seating, but I was there in January, so it was inside in the warm for us!! Can’t wait to go back!!
I wasn’t a huge fan of this brewer until I visited their tap house and tried some of the brews not available elsewhere. Try Snowbound and Smoke Jumper if you get the chance. The number of beers on tap is impressive. The service is great. And it’s a really fun vibe. Worth a trip.
Visited the place for the second time and could see that quite a change had taken place at the taproom. The bar had been extended, there was more space in the room with the bar, extra seats had been added outside and food was offered. Still it was possible to buy merchandise. Quite a few locals were present so the bartenders were quite busy and had only little time to talk.

Cool public house, no food, no frills, pints and growlers and bottles and t-shirts. Patios outside and a lodge/cabin feel inside, there was one pub-only beer on tap when I visited, the 400 lb Monkey double IPA. No food, pretzels only to snack on, which is cool because it’s really just good beer and good people. I think you’ll have a good time here.
Visited on a Thursday afternoon. The Bar is Colorado Rustic all wood and no pretense. Pleasant ambiance Gabriella y Rodrigo was playing on the stereo which lent a cool soundtrack to the proceedings. My friend and I split two samplers of all the available beers on tap. Very tasty beer, representing the state well. I was impressed with the prices and the selection of brews. They also offer a nice variety of merch. to commemorate your visit. Service was a little slow, but it speaks volumes about the place to see all the locals roll in around 5 for after work drinks. I really enjoyed it.
Visited on a Thursday night. The brewery was a nice place, another rustic looking place in Colorado with a nice little beer garden. We arrived late, so we only had time for a sampler or couple pints. The sampler was about the same as other places. The beers were all very tasty, and it was a worth the money. The service wasn’t the best, but maybe the bartender was just having a bad day. Worth a stop if you’re in Longmont, but maybe not for a specific trip to it.
Nice tasting room, decent sized bar and some tables. It was a bit difficult to find from the directions on the web site, but once we got there it was worth it. L/H OA impy stout on cask was a big plus!
