River North Brewery is on Blake St. (same as FreshCraft and Falling Rock) but further northeast. It's fairly close to the Rockies ballpark.
Located in an old industrial building, a large glass garage door rolls up making it feel very open and bright. Inside it's a small angled bar with a few wooden tables surrounding it. Behind the bar is a giant window allowing visitors to view the brewery behind in action. I wasn't able to go in but it was quite an impressive space with high vaulted ceilings over large stainless tanks.
I sat down and ordered a beer at the bar. Service was prompt and friendly.
They had a good selection of beers, all theirs, with maybe 10 tap handles. Pints, 10oz pours, and tasters were available as well as growlers to go.
Overall a very comfortable place to have a beer and I wish them continued success.

I ducked in here on a brewery hop that included Epic, Great Divide, and Jagged Mountain and the beer I had here was easily the most memorable.
I like saisons, for their occasional tartness, the heavy presence of sweet malt, and the zestiness and yeastiness that are usually present. Having the Unified Theory, River North's Saison, I got everything I wanted out of this style of beer. It was excellent. As an added bonus, my pour, which I think was sixteen ounces in the snifter (but maybe 12) only cost me five bucks. That seems to be a rarity in Denver.
Yeah, drinking in Denver is expensive.
But River North didn't break my bank. Plus the beer I had was tremendous.
I only stuck around for one, but I loved it.
I will note that the drinking area of this brewery is tiny, so there are very few seats. It's more of a place to go and enjoy a beer than it is a place to socialize and spend the afternoon. Unless of course you get there super early and beat the crowd.
Anyway, I highly endorse this place as far as the beer.
