We enjoyed a summer evening bike ride to this place. To me, it's a more pleasant beer way to taste beer than 90% of the bars and joints. A neighborhood feel, wide variety of customers, and the owners are both friendly and totally knowledgeable. On the way back from the restroom I watched the two brewers checking a new Schwartzbier with a good old-fashioned hydrometer. The bar itself faces big windows into the brewery. Big windows all along two other walls give the place an airy feel.
The beers cover a wide range of styles, from a light summer beer and low alcohol German beers, to the seldom seen Roggenbier (my favorite) and the intensely spiced Mexican chocolate stout. Tasters are available, and others are served in pints or 10 oz tulips depending on strength.
I hope this is a trend, if people can make money on a modest brewery and create a nicer taproom. The brewer and wife are the nicest people, and I wish them well too.

Atmosphere - With an outdoor patio now open this place gets a new added feature it was missing before. Have heard people describe as Crate and Barrel and the decorations are great and very relaxing. Open window to see some of the brewery as well.
Quality - now that they have been open long enough they have gotten the quality down pat. An upgraded system will test their quality in the next few months
Service - Depends on the day as this place can get swamped and really busy, but they do a good job of knowing all the regulars.
Selection - Varying with cask, nitro, and CO2 this place has really branched out with variety in the last few months.
Overall - if not for the Mexican Chocolate alone this is a must try location. Off the beaten path, but a great place to search out while visiting Denver.
