A very unassuming place and location in the middle of a neighborhood just a block or two from Colorado Mining School's campus.

Very cool, very efficient space in that they have packed everything think they need in tight, with out it seeming too crowded or overwhelming.

Atmosphere is very laid back. It felt like somewhere between somebody's back yard and Cheers. You know, where everybody knows your name. It was a little cold but we sat out in the beer garden anyway, which was laid out very nice.

Quality: I was less than impressed with the beers. They just weren't memorable and weren't that good. They weren't horrible or any major flaws, just not that good.

Service: Fast and friendly counter service. You go back to the counter when you want more.

Selection: They did have six beers to choose from on draft and three in the bottle in a cooler. It looked as if their bottle selection had been recently depleted. They had a Gose on draft which was impressive.

Great prices and worth a try back to see if my experience with the beer matches up with the other reviewers experiences next time. (1,101 characters)

I loved visiting this place! I loved that it is in a residential area. Seeing houses all around you as your sipping a delicious brew on their patio is pretty sweet! (164 characters)

Amazing new remodel. I really like the bathrooms and the repurposed bowing alley tables, I think from the old golden bowl. GCB has been here ever since I moved to the state 7 years ago. It is always amazing with excellent beers and a completely unique and unpretentious vibe, which is growing scarse with all the new clone a brewery types popping up all over the state. Check them out, you won't be disappointed. (414 characters)

This place is the best. Go kill yourself on one of the many single tracks and then stop here for a sampler. (107 characters)

Great local establishment. We have been coming here for years.

GCB has been around way before craft beers were "Cool"

One occasion many years ago-we were offered a free pitcher for stacking some empty kegs! (209 characters)

Really cool outdoor beer garden. Beers were lacking in character and were not poured properly with a lower level of carbonation which is not to my liking. Staff acted like they did not want to be there, very off putting to say the least. (238 characters)

Showed up just before last call. Jason and I were able to sneak in a couple of pints each. Beers were lackluster and flat. Service was the same. Guy behind the bar hated life or something.

The beer garden only and ordering from a door concept was interesting, but not interesting enough to pull me back.

Seems like they're living in the past, back when they actually were the "2nd largest brewing in Golden." (410 characters)
