This place is in a small strip mall type of industrial warehouse in a quiet part of town. Took a minute to even find it once in the right complex. Inside is “cozy” (in the small sense) with plenty of charm to it. In addition to the beer they have merchandise and soft pretzels they heat up in the toaster oven behind the counter. I encountered this at several other breweries as well. It sounds like they all get the same pretzels from the same guy but they offer their own twist to it, in this case some cheese dipping sauce. I enjoyed it. The beers were decent but nothing amazing. They did however have 10 taps to choose from. Among those taps were some seasonals and a special tap that changes every week. The people working the bar were pretty nice and over all I had a good time there but if you’re on foot you’ll pretty much have to cab it over here or get dropped off so it’s not an overly convenient stop for a tourist.
This is a little tasting room tucked away in a small plaza. They’ve done well with the space with a TV, a small bar and a few tables. A food truck comes on the weekends, otherwise it’s just popcorn. The beer selection covered a good amount of styles with a few rotating that seem to usually be something interesting. I was here on a Tuesday night and a few locals were hanging out enjoying good beer. Pretty cool spot.
So good with so many new one offs that ratebeerians can’t even keep up with how many new brews they come up with!!! A new one every Wednesday. The people are awesome and brew is often inspiring and at the very least...."STRANGE"... please remember, all your friends were strangers once!
Visited on October 6, 2012. Had a flight of 10 beers. Difficult to drive to right now, due to some construction and detour October 1 through 25. Was a radio broadcast and GABF raffle going on this day. Did not eat. Super good service. Got a tour of the brewery when I asked if I could go in and look at it. Nice place, if I lived in Denver I’d go back often for sure.
Out-of-the-way industrial area, but worth the trip. Small locale with small bar area and small eating/tabled area. 7 or 8 taps of unique, impressive brews for the size of the operation. Very friendly staff. Would highly recommend if in the area. These guys are quickly outgrowing their surroundings.
Visited mid-afternoon on a Thursday in March. The spot is located more or less under I-25 so lacks a bit in curb appeal. Beautiful sunny day, which made this the perfect place to have a couple of beers in the sun. The set up is a light industrial garage, with a brewery on one side, tasting room on the other. Seating is a bit cramped, but the place oozes character. They had about 7-8 beers on draft, plus they had a food truck outside grilling up steaks. Crowd was very relaxed, and the service was super friendly and helpful. I love places that feel like you are heading out in someone’s garage. I had the Kriek and a Saison, and both beers were solid. Fun visit, would certainly hit this a bunch if I still lived in Denver.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Not very strategically located and is very secluded. The staff was friendly, but the beer was OK. Their kriek is great though, so if they have it on tap definitely try it. The atmosphere is kind of drab and it is not decorated well at all. If you are going to Mile High or Mile High Station, it is very close by and worth a try.
