SBC is another craft beer Colorado success story. The proprietor & brewer Tim Myers, was active in the Denver homebrew community and struck out on his own with Strange in 2010. He's since garnered GABF medals and a whole host of followers like me who take pleasure in his work. His Farmhouse Ale - a Saison - is the best of class in my book. Strange has just expanded their space and has a very nice patio for enjoying Tim's superb beers. If you're coming from out of town, it's off the beaten path and not in the beer mecca of Lodo and instead in obscure industrial zone west of downtown. Be sure to map it out.

So Rob and I are working through the local breweries as home brewers that dig the equipment and taste variations; I choose this place for a visit. Great time had by all! We did the 10 pack taster... most of the beers were good, I thought the best were the Cherry variations, the worst was the porter.. nondescript. The bartender took us through the operations area and seemed knowledgeable about the beer making process. It's not a 1 bbl shoppe anymore; 10 bbl now. There's a very comfortable atmosphere.. I settled in on the IPA variations, Rob bounced around the darker stuff. BTW, Kudos to Brewster's owner for adding a mascot for the evening. Brewster's a mega-corgi mix with a big smile and great attitude.

Stop # 248 on my world brewery tour.
Visited on the Thursday of GABF around 3:00 which didn't leave a ton of time to relax and enjoy the place.
A surprisingly nice environment in an otherwise nondescript industrial row on the west side of downtown Denver. I walked out with the reinforced belief that if you brew it (excellent beer), they will come find it which is the case here.
Small "lounge" up front along with a garage door that opens to create a patio area in the parking lot. A taco truck steps from that but I'm not sure if that is always there or not.
My buddy and I split the sampler. All beers were excellent and the cherry Kriek was among the best of that style that I've had. The people working/volunteering there were all super friendly and loved what they were doing.
Strange began as a nano brewery using 55 gallon Blichmann equipment and is now up to a 7 bbl system.

I live in Denver and have been to nearly every micro-brewery or brewpub along the Front Range (Ft. Collins, Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs) and this is my favorite - for the great quality of the beer, the cozy & welcoming atmosphere, the fellow beer-loving customers, etc. I take a growler home a few times a month, and though I like several of the beers a lot, I always come back to their Pale Ale, perhaps the best made beer in that category I've ever had. Atmosphere is very basic, no food to speak of aside from the popcorn machine and the food truck stationed there when the "patio" is open on weekends, though I've never tried it. Lots of other very good micros around but, to repeat, I put Strange at the top of the list.

FINALLY hit this place with Ratman and Emmasdad on Wednesday afternoon/early evening. A bit out of the way but definitely worth it. I tried three of their offerings and their Paint It Black was quite delicious. Also tried their Cherry Kriek which was very good--sour cherry apple pie in a glass--as well as their Tainted Black IPA. All three were very good to say the least.Tasting room is quite small but no one seems to mind--everyone's there for the beer, right? Complimentary pretzels and peanuts is it on the food side but, hey, you're there for the beer, right? I will most definitely be back.

Hidden gem of a brewery stashed in the industial area between I-25 and the power plant west of downtown. Nice little well lit tasting room although a bit on the small side..Kind of like hanging out at a friends place. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Usually at least seven beers on tap at reasonable prices. Now that they have thier seven barrel system they are planning a series of one off beers on their one barrel system. I'm looking forward to these Beers. Free popcorn, peanuts and pretzles. Good value and good times well worth checking out.
