An awesome place to stop and have a beer if in the touristy town of Golden. I love the sign on the street corner. Golden's second largest brewery, in the shadows of one of the behemoths in the beer world. Ultra laid back and chill. The main area is basically a backyard with some picnic tables, and a tiny area inside that can maybe seat 6-7 people. A perfect spot for a few afternoon beers.

The selection is not as extensive as other places can be, but the quality is incredible. The main stays are a kolsh, alt, brown, stout, and IPA. Also a Gose and barleywine were both killed when I was there. Everything is very good to great. The IPA specifically is one of the best I have had anywhere. The Gose and Alt are both very unique styles and done perfectly. The quality here is top notch, all fresh as can be.

The service is very good. The one bartender and owner take care of everything and are very knowledgeable and personable. They gave a round of free beer out to some people that helped a family from the neighborhood find their lost dog. That is great. The food looked really good, but I did not grub. Pizzas, sandwiches, and salads that all look really well made.

Overall, one of my favorite places in the Denver area. All around top notch and well run. I would sit here all day if I could.

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.

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."

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.
