Visited River North on the week I was in Denver for GABF on a recomendation by a local beer nerd. The tap room was mid size (given the size of the brewery), but it was busy that night so we ended up with standing tables in the actual brewery. awesome.

No food was available, however there were a few food cart vendors in the area and they were cool with bringing it in. To drink I had a flight of three wit beers. One aged in wine barrells one in whiskey and the other straight up. It was a nice change of pace from the imperial *this* and 100+ IBU *that* tons of flavor and a cool idea.

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.
