Just off the Platte River Trail and near the pedestrian/bike bridges over the Platte and over I-25. Seven beers on tap, a Hefe, pale ale, saison, cherry brown, stout, scotch and "Smokey Denver Male Ale." And a cider on tap. Interesting mix of styles. Buy your beer at the bar, no nonsense. Lively but not crowded on a Thursday night.

Place must be nice in the warmer months with the wall of roll-up garage-style windows facing south, with the big patio.

Pizza truck with wood-fired oven parked on the sidewalk. A little too dog friendly for my taste. Loud music booming in the hardscape space. Concrete floors, minimal but jolly decor. Copper brew kettles.

11/17/2013 Update: Tried three new beers and the best one was mediocre. so many interesting styles, I don't know what's wrong with these folks. Great location if you're walking from north Denver over the great pedestrian bridge or up from the Platte River and Union Station. The dogs rule.

V-Denver Beer Co. has a medium sized indoor/outdoor layout with a good patio and lots of community tables. The bar is in the center of the joint with some brewing equipment behind and to the side. There is also a barrel area in another room...I'm not sure what its like in there. The place is close to Denver's Central Business District and its always crowded with a mostly younger crowd.

Q-I've never had a DBC beer that blows me away, but most are drinkable. The Graham Cracker Porter is above-average (especially on tap), their IPA (Incredible Pedal) is so-so, and the Belgian pale ale that I tried last night was above average too. I've had some losers from DBC, but most of their beers are serviceable.

Ser-I have had a hard time getting great service here. It is sometimes slow (owing to the crowds, mostly) and last night the bar tender was just, um, kind of a jerk. I have had a few visits with people here who know what they are brewing, but that has been a while.

Sel-The beer selection is broad in terms of style, with everything from a barleywine to an IPA to a porter on offer last night. I have never seen a guest tap here.

O-The Denver BAs give DBC a hard time for various reasons. The bad rep is somewhat deserved, but there are worse beer joints in town and patio is good people watching.

The building is 5 stars all the way.
Beers are variable, but always something unique.

I love Denver Beer Co. Besides the awesome beer the atmosphere is near perfect. Its a wide open space with an amazing porch-- lots of picnic tables with wired vines and christmas lights overhead. I took advantage of their pretty good game selection... nothing beats battleship and beer. Really enjoyed their Citrus Session.
