Black Shirt has anything for red ales; 6 in the flight and 1 that was experimental with Chai tea. The brewers/partners are very accessible and can tell you whatever you want to know. They have a great story and enjoy sharing it (like ask them how they came across the equipment).

Red ale may seem dull, but when it's done as an English ale, an IPA and a couple saisons...well, you just have to go.

The tables/tops are the flooring out of old Coors trailers. Beer is served out of glasses intended to hold the aroma (though if you have a really big nose you can use the other side).

Park in the lot on the opposite side of the liquor store - it's well marked. We were on a brewery crawl so spaced-out and didn't think to ask about beer to go, so if someone goes in, update the info...and try to get a picture.

Atmosphere - the location is not ideal by any means. If you do not get side street parking you are parking in a side lot that has barbed wire fencing. HOWEVER, once you get in the building is beautiful with the whole music theme rocking out. The addition of the front and back patio make this place even more enjoyable. Was there yesterday and the back patio was filled for a private event, but there was plenty of seating elsewhere

Quality - This has improved quite a bit from the get go, but they have it down pat now. The "reds" really range, but they are all quite delicious.

Service - The servers actually want to be there, talk with you, and are handing you waters before you even ask. Job well done, keep up the great vibe.

Selection - Out of a few beers when I attended, but still lots to choose from. The all Red theme might be deceiving, but I enjoy the selection

Overall - other than the horrible location this is an off the beaten trail place I would highly suggest. Like others have said, make it the first or last stop of your crawl along RiNo.
