4.03/5  rDev -8.4%

Atmosphere: the place is kinda tucked away in an industrial strip mall type of place with a very small parking lot. there was kind of this feeling around that nothing on earth existed besides avery, which was nice. the service inside was almost intolerably slow. two people working on an entirely full dining room worth of patrons. but to be fair most of the people in there were there for a tour. looking around, ordering incredibly slow, and asking a zillion questions. the barkeeper was incredibly nice and engaged everyone in a conversation, so by the time i got my beers and a chat i didnt really mind the slow service. the tour was informative and interesting enough.

quality: everything was great. lots of beers to choose from. cask maharaja and ballsmack baltic porter were my personal highlights.

selection: all you could hope for and more on tap. as well as an expected selection of bottles.

food: I had a delicious taco from a local vendor who had set up on the grounds. so...

The service was great for being very busy......the beers were they solid.....I had the Oktoberfest (awesome!!!!)....Gored (pumpkin and very thin in character), The Kasier (Oktoberfest) was a little sweet but helped mask the ABV. If you are in the area it's a must visit.

4.5/5  rDev +2.3%

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Poured an extremely dark, almost opaque brown color with no head what-so-ever.

Aroma: Malty and bready up front, like toasted English muffins. Some notes of black pepper, brown sugar and hops.

Taste: Delicious!! Tons of malt and freshly baked dark bread, like pumpernickel, followed by some notes of roasted nuts, black pepper, and some toffee-like sweetness. Some notes of dried fruit as well, dates, prunes, cherries. Good fruitcake in a glass.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth, with no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.3%, there is quite the presence of pleasing alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Damn, this is a great beer! I love the toffee and the malt and the nuttiness. Simply an outstanding Christmas ale! Highly recommended!

Located just outside downtown Boulder in an industrial park. The location and surroundings aren't great, but seems to be standard for mid-size breweries like this.

Went on a Friday afternoon and it was very busy. The bar was full and had to stake out a space to the end of a larger table already occupied by a group. Beers are available in full or tasting sizes. The prices varied, but they were all reasonable. Service was good and very quick. The waiter puts the order into a handheld device and someone comes out with the beer moments later. Didn't try any food.

Got unlucky I think in that there were no barrel-aged or sour releases available, but still had a good time. Would recommend.

I like everything about this brewery and their staff! If you are in the Denver area for GABF, find out what events and special tappings they have going on and GO! Rumpkin is my all time favorite beer!!
