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.
Great little brewery hidden in an industrial area between railroad tracks and underneath a highway in a mini strip mall-- but worth seeking out-- really a great find! Very friendly staff and cozy little wooden bar, with a garage door that opens in warm months. On their 1st anniversary party last spring, they had live bluegrass music, which seemed to fit really well in that space. Tasty beers too, I’m especially a fan of the farmhouse and the saison.
Great, small little place in an older industrial strip mall (think small warehouse) just south of mile high and just west of 25. When I visited (January 2012), the offerings were very broad - from Kriek to a rum vanilla porter and lots in between - probably 12 different beers, impressive for a small operation. I only had 3 (’farmhouse’, IPA and th saison), and all were clean, technically well done, and, most importantly, delicious. Conversation was great, overall a friendly place that I didn’t want to leave and wished was around the corner (although, nothing is really around the corner). As its about 80% from office to home on my commute, it’s firmly in the rotation.
small new brewery in Denver near the football stadium. small tasting room with a few taps offering a variety of styles that Strange has at the moment - all great beer. gave me 3 samples for free since I didn’t want the full sampler since I had to drive out to the airport. I’ll be back.
A somewhat small place near downtown with a large house selection. The seating spills out into the parking lot where a local food vendor/truck is preparing fresh meals. The beer is solid and the brewer/staff very friendly and helpful. There is an AHA discount too.
Stopped by for Ratman’s 5K. Small little brewery with a decent amount of people packed in to the space. Parking available outside with somewhat BBQing in the parking lot. Beers overall were pretty solid and it was a fun atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Worth stopping at.
I really liked this place. They are mostly just starting and some of the beers had technical issues but these are solvable. What is irreplaceable is the cantina-type, small town Mexico layout, which I found rather appealing in an off-mainstream kind of way.
Really cool little place in a crappy looking part of town. Lots of hard work and love put into making it look nice. Not much space, but it’s never too crowded. Unfortunately most of the selection is average. There’s a couple of standout brews, but they run out fast. Nice people, especially the head brewer. Just lacking in beer awesomeness.
small brewhouse pub, 6-8 taps, both the IPA and black IPA i had were not very good. people were nice, but overall it was kind of a depressing visit and there’s really nothing more important than beer quality, which this place struggles with.
This place is cool, albeit in a complete dumpy part of town. Surely worth the drive though. Had a Cherry Bomb stout there which is in my category of personal favorites, and the farmhouse was quite memorable in a category that gets polluted with allot of sh&t these days.
All in all a good off the grid type place to keep in mind and I do agree that it will only get better with time.
