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.

I stopped by here on a recommendation from a friend, and was glad I did. They are primarily a beer garden, but with a cozy little indoor area. They gave me a brewery tour and some preview tastes off the tanks. They had a cool brick and copper old style kettle.
The selection of beers was about 10 but they covered every taste I wanted. The kolsch was the single best I ever had! The red is perfect. Stout is great. The brown was also very enjoyable.
There was a food truck selling fantastic organic burritos. I will definitely make my way out there as much as I can.

First visited two days ago. Pretty much a hole in the wall. Was impressed with the Stand-Up Double IPA, although the pint glass was dirty and the beer slightly flat - it also could've used some filtration. Returned today and noticed that they were still out of the majority of their standard beers. Waited at the counter for several minutes while the bartender chatted it up with a vendor. When I commented on her attention to a vendor rather than a customer, she just replied that she'd been waiting to order whatever it was for some time.
I know how she felt...obviously, this place values their vendors over their customers.
