Remarkable range of beers, all well described on the boards and printed menu. The five seasonal styles tend toward German with some fruit beers and a selection of "normal" styles for the standard house brews. But there is a lot to choose from and they seem to keep several new seasonals coming all the time.

Service was attentive and responsive when you wanted something. One of the bartenders stopped to check on us and gave a dissertation on the style of our beer and the philosophy of the place while he took a breather. And the well-used brewery is right there through the window.

Free popcorn. A group was having a potluck dinner in the big back room, which seems like a great idea for a place like this to promote. I think this is a really interesting variation on how beer businesses are making a go of it these days. Intimacy? no, but it's very jolly and unpretentious, and the noise level is bearable since they skip the all-too-common blare of music-like noise.

Way the hell out in darkest Aurora, so not likely for a quick downtown Denver visit. But totally worth seeking out if you have the time and transportation. Among the most interesting brewpubs in Denver. I'd skip Wynkoop and go here if for some reason you had to choose one.

Really enjoyed this place on my trip to Denver in 2011. Very interesting brewery/home brew store situation. Can't wait to come back!
