Transcribed from notes dated F, 25 Sept 2009.
What was I doing here and how did I get here?, those who know me might ask. It was an hour south of Denver and I was on a bus trip with Ale Street News as part of their annual GABF foray. It was our first stop of the day and a picture was taken here with the mountains in the background that was later published.
Disembarking, I saw that it was on the corner of a small strip mall with an outdoor patio area to the right of the entryway. Entering, the short "J"-shaped bar was mere steps inside of the door. A rack of distressed wood (driftwood?) to the left of the bar displayed growlers. Similar distressed-wood constructions framed the chalkboards, which used colored chalk to detail available beers, specials, and other miscellany. The bar top was a colorful stained glass-like amalgam composite with corrugated aluminum as the front. Aft of the bar was the cooler followed by the modest kitchen. To the right of the bar were a series of high stainless steel tables bolted into the wall overlooking the brewery. A plaque noted that the windows came from a real estate salvage yard. Frankly, the whole place had a very industrial/recycled feel, including exposed ducting, ceiling fans and the bare concrete floor. Further aft, on the left side were the lavs and on the right side was a garage door opening for more open-air seating past a lounge area filled with sofas and comfy chairs. Against the back wall were several racks for storage and aging of their barrel-aged beers. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, but nothing, including food or beer, was so mind blowing that I would have felt as though I had missed out by not having visited.
Beer: Six (6) including Sunna Wit, Chi Golden Speciale, FLOIPA (also on N2), Farmhouse Saison, Soul Horkey Ale, and Awaken Stout (also on N2).

Atmosphere was ok, hard to tell really since it was a slow weekday afternoon, but it was pleasant enough and amiable to families.
Quality high - plenty of tasty beers, including several cask and a nitro selection, with lots of bottles to go (inc. sours and wilds) and a variety of guest beers too.
Service was fine, no problems there. They aimed to please and gave out samples of their various beers.
Food was good but snack menu was a bit limited and the prices for dinner were a bit higher than average for an establishment of this type.
