Not really close to anything except industry in Denver. Was worth the trek, and I'd probably go back, but drive or ride a bike this time. The beer were good, and the atmosphere was decent enough, but somewhat different than other breweries in the area.

divey little warehouse brewery - open garage door (even in the rain) with a permanent looking creep food cart on the other side.

Decent selection of brews - there's a laminated menu but there were also a few chalkboards with various other seasonal things. I sampled the DIPA and a cask IPA which were both pretty good. The pumpkin porter seasonal was pretty bad, though.

Interesting little place - they also had a bottled barleywine for sale, but there weren't enough indications that a purchase would be wise. Probably a 'skip' in the future, but worth checking out.

I just reviewed my notes on our brewery trip to CO and noticed that a had not reviewed Strange Brewery. This is from notes taken after the visit two weeks ago.

Strange Brewery is at the end of a small strip mall next to I- 23 in Denver. It's small but there were plenty of people there on this weekend afternoon. The weather was great and several bicyclists were outside on the patio drinking a beer and getting something from the food truck. You could bring your pooch and sit outside. The inside is split into tree different rooms. The one off to the right is not finished but I guess it could be used if the weather turned since the main room where the bar is was filled as was the adjacent one off to the left. There are tables for parties of two to six between the two rooms. I could see out towards the back it looked like the brewers were enjoying a couple of beers with some friends or maybe it was the end of a brewery tour and they were sampling some. A chalk board on the wall lists which beers are available that day. There were about eight and all brewed there. There were no guest beers.

A couple of seats at the bar opened up and we took them. I had the IPAphany IPA and shared a pretzel with my friend. The bartender was quick with the beers and heated the pretzel in a toaster oven. the beers are $5 and the pretzel was$3. The beer was very good but I would skip their pretzels and try the food truck. The pretzel was cold in the middle. We moved off to the other room and had a chat with a couple who stopped for a beer with their family. About this time I did notice there was a server working. I think he had been outside in the back hang out and joking about his black eye.

Overall, I would recommend this place for a quick beer. It seems to be popular with the locals. It's friendly enough but kind of a dive is my first and most lasting impression. I can't recall exactly what music was playing; but I think it was classic rock. I could imagine the band Cream playing the song "Strange Brew". It seems so fitting.
