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.

I would keep coming back for the graham cracker porter. I wish I would have tried more, but I did also have samples of the lime wheat (which I didn't care for at all) and the scotch on scotch (very good). The pricing was awesome, and even though they were packed I didn't wait long. The limited staff was on their shit. I wish they distributed.

Denver Beer Co. is a converted auto repair garage. There is a patio in the front (beer garden) with picnic tables and a few umbrellas. It's dog friendly and several people had their pooches sitting and enjoying the beautiful early evening Denver weather. The inside is smaller than it seems: a few tables for two or four and some bar stools. You have to go to the bar to get a beer. The only service I saw was a woman picking up glasses and cleaning tables after someone left.
The selection of beers is small: five or six I think. We sat outside and my friend got a couple of beers and I got something from the food truck. Well, the food from the truck was good but the beer wasn't. They apparently don't care about the quality of the beer here.
We got the Incredible Petal IPA and the beer was flat. We asked the woman bussing tables if anyone said anything about the bad Incredible Petal IPA. She said, "We've been having problems with it." When I told the bartender that the Incredible Petal was flat he said the same thing, "We've been having problems with it." Then he walked away.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who likes a good beer.

Open garage doors, board games, lots of seating, dogs allowed, large patio with hops plants.... What about the atmosphere can you not love about this place? I wish they had a more consistent beer list. Do not get me wrong I love experimentation, but with more than 8 taps I think you should have a few beers that are always there. They brought back their GABF winning Graham Cracker Porter and have Kaffir Lime Wheat on tap during the summer, but most of the beers rotate too frequently.
The blessing and curse of DBC is their location. With so much foot traffic they often sell through beers in no time. However, this typically means they need to put beers on tap that definitely need more time just to keep up with demand.
Overall I would suggest people should visit this place while visiting Denver or to enjoy the sun on a nice weekend.
