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.

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.

Not often does Beerfly lead me astray, but aside from the lovely garden/patio, this place was a major dud.
Only 4 beers on tap - the IPA was flat as a pancake and the amber was nothing to write home about.
Food consisted of pretzels and a fiery hot mustard. There was a truck slinging "texorado" bbq but nobody was buying it. Not sure why - looked pretty great.
And to top it off, I understand the "second largest brewery in Golden" is now actually the 4th :(
