Another new brewery in Denver. This is in the River North/Five Points area, just east of downtown. Easy to miss...just look for the picnic tables on the east side

Not the smallest tasting room in Denver, but it ain't big. Probably 30 people seating comfortably. Bar in the corner, chalk board beer list, and a phonograph player! Nice.
Would be cozy once they gather more nuances. Chairs/stools are bit crass. My toosh went to sleep...

Basic selection, with some odds and ends snuck in. I had a full flight (well, 3 were sold out) for $5...which was 6 samples. Good beer for a start up, but some diacatyl kept creeping in.

This place will be hopping by spring, with Black Shirt, River North and Crooked Stave being in the neighborhood.

UPDATE:
Busier this time around, and more chaotic. Bartender had trouble remembering my order, then which beers were what after he poured them. The saison was downright horrible, and when I asked if the ash tray taste was on purpose the bartender said, "what, you never had a saison before?". Yes, as a matter of fact I have, and this is crap. HUGE point deduction pal.
Won't be back here for a while as they shift through the growing pains.

A-Our Mutual Friend has a standard - but not off-putting - vibe. The space is heavy on the concrete with a smaller bar. Brewing equipment is in the "back room" through a doorway. The space is pretty sparse, and not in a designer way.

Ser-Our mutual bartender was quick to respond, but he gave off some attitude that was unearned and unnecessary. Also, my nitro coffee stout arrive in a pint glass. I know not everyone swears by glassware, but still....

Sel-The were six taps beers available on the night I visited. They spanned the range from light to dark, but in this day and age when TGI Fridays has ten taps available, I have come to expect a bit more.

Q-I tried four beers (each brewed by Our Mutual Friend) and none of them really blew my hair back, but none of them were objectionable, either. The beers fit the ambiance....middle of the road.

V-The beers are reasonable to slightly below the market price for this area of Denver.

O-Our Mutual Friend is not a bad place to drink a beer, but it isn't a great place to drink a beer, either. This place is worth a stop if you want something off the tourist trail in Denver, but it is not worth seeking out.

Not many beers on tap but they always have a few interesting options to try. Very chill, simple set up in the bar area as well as the side patio, but service has been great and beer quality is solid. Good food truck selection available outside. Never too crowded and a good place to relax and have a conversation over a pint.

A qauint little brewery near downtown Denver.
Ventured while in town for my wife's business trip, so I had the 2 year old with me. Was certainly friendly enough for that, like most breweries are.
The beer were good, and there were about 8-9 on tap. They did growlers to go, including half growlers. It is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the visit.

fun little spot just opened up down on the east side of downtown, one barrel brewing system going. place is neat, old converted warehouse type, with a small chalkboard menu, vinyl spinning, and maybe seating for 30 tops. 5 or 6 brews on, maybe 7. all were okay, nothing floored me, but the winter warmer was the pick of the lot I thought. they also stole my "proletariat" name I had in mind for a super dank, super cheap, working class ipa, but they made it a light golden ale style, kinda bummed... anyways, there were maybe 4 or 5 indie hipster wanabe looking guys behind the bar, so it was surprising to me when I stood there for 5 minutes without being acknowledged in a half full place. what are they all doing back there? seemed weird to say the least, this happened all 3 times I went to get a beer though. I finally got alround to talking to one of owners Andrew, who is a pretty reasonable cat and seems to know his stuff decently well. they don't have the malting facility up and running yet, but apparently plan too. they also host a home brew club, which I might check out before too long. overall a place that's in the opening stages and will only get better. they were nice enough, the beer was good enough, they let dogs in, and they had food trucks outside. they also collaborated with their neighbors the huckleberry coffee roasters for a pretty good stout, so that's fun. will be back soon to check progress. still a league below rive north in beer terms though.
