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).

The place had a urban/hipster feel to it which is OK, and wow the selection. Did a flight and thought their beers were good to great, but not quite yet at the pinnacle of things. Considered buying a few bottles but decided against it for the price... although for the particular styles they weren't too out of order, more so my cellar is getting too big and now I buy for great value. I probably will visit this place again and recommend it to anyone who hasn't been there. Did not try any food, not sure if there is any.
