Nice little place. Probably enough room for about 30 people or so. Normal backed bar stools and a few nice chairs. 3 big screen tvs on the walls. Foosball in the corner. Small stage next to the door, I came in on live music night. They also have a comedy night, football on Sundays, and a trivia night.
They serve no food but a couple places deliver and a few restaurants are very close.
Employees that night were very nice and made sure you were taken care of.
Pints are $4. Four seasonals on tap (2 sold out) and 6 year round beers on tap. Unfortunately the beer was ok at best. The Summertime ale(year round beer) was the best of the lot. The ipa was unimpressive. Rosemary's baby, brewed with rosemary, was very heavy on the rosemary. And I sampled a beer made with sunflower seeds(Sol something) which was very bland. That said I do give them some credit for trying something different.

In a strip mall on a busy road in the NW. It should be a good location for them since Coors BLVD sees a lot of traffic.

The inside is clean, some comfy chairs plus typical bar seats and tables. It also has darts, foosball, and a bunch of flat screens on the wall. The first time I went it was 3pm on a Saturday after some hiking. I had two kids with me, my wife, and there were two other groups that had kids. I had to strategically place my kids around the table so they could not see the MMA blood bath on the tv's that no one was watching. (The second time I went it was at night for comedy night. They also have a trivia night too. Great atmosphere at night.)

My wife and I tried a sampler and in general were unimpressed. Most of the beers had muddled flavors and some off flavors from poor fermentation. The IPA was most disappointing since I figured they brewed in small batches and could make some kick ass IPA's. Definitely not an IPA for a hop head. The best beer I had was a slightly hopped summer ale. The porter and scotch ale I had were bland. Pilsner was decent.

I heard they were putting in some more temperature control and yeast management equipment. I hope this helps. Right now the beer is mediocre, but better than macro swill. If I had to choose one place in the NW to visit I would still choose Turtle Mtn, but worth a visit and I'm sure it will only get better.
