A-The front room is small-medium, but the building is quite large. It has that industrial feel that every new brewery adopts, so this isn't a warm and cozy Cheers type of place, but it mostly works here. We visited on a Saturday night and the place was hopping. We stopped in to see a friend's band, who was set up in the large back room. Everybody in the place seemed to be enjoying themselves, which is how it should be.

Q-I tasted two beers, both Diebolt brews. The beers technically good, i.e., clean tap lines, no off flavors, but I cannot say that I enjoyed either one all that much. Also, the bartender did not leave any head on the pours (the glasses spilled they were so full), which is a pet peeve of mine. At least they were poured in the correct style glasses.

Ser-Despite the place being busy, we got our beers quickly at the bar. The bar tender was friendly, too. I cannot say much more than that, but my impressions were positive.

Sel-The brewery had 8 beers on tap, all Diebolt items. The number is on the low side these days with places like Mountain Sun offering double the number they offer here. Diebolt did, however, offer growler fills, which is good and they offered a pretty good spread of styles.

V-The prices were on the low side of reasonable. Plus, there was no cover for the band!

O-This place has a nice vibe, but I wish the taste beers matched the feel of the place.

we had an absolutely fantastic time at diebolt. its an intimate taproom, small and crowded, but they had plenty of people pouring beer, trivia in the house, a food truck, and an open brew area that allowed for pingpong, cornhole, foosball, and general wondering. i like that a lot, they even have a patio when its nice out. maybe eight or nine beers pouring, all of which were pretty solid. i really enjoyed the french ale and the ipa, but they recently won a silver medal for their brown ale, and had some creative stuff there too. folks were nice, and the atmosphere was comfortable. i thought the prices were fair too, and would definitely come back here. i hope these guys make it, i know their bottling mission wasnt overly well received, but i would encourage folks to check this place out. a great place to settle in for the evening, enough beer to keep my attention too. A overall.

Atmosphere - small industrial building with lots of potential. They are building a patio/ deck here soon which should help this score. They have lots of space in back for parties and large groups.

Quality - very consistent beers here. lots of experimenting as well.

Service - the family owned business is truly fun and they enjoy what they are doing. quite quirky and fun.

Selection - with lots of experimenting they always have something new.

Overall - Diebolt is a family run business that is doing things the right way. They have lots of potential and will come back often.

Had heard they were open and dropped by after a meeting nearby, at 3:20. well they don't open until 4 but the owner saw me looking at the posted hours and threw the door open and said "You look like you need a beer, come on in. We're not doing anything anyway."

Had a 10 oz Saison Voila while chatting about their opening, construction, permitting etc, then got offered a tour over a second 10 oz Biere de Triomphe. (There was a selection of around six beers on tap plus two "experimental beers" of which the Biere de Triomphe was one, a "French ale" though it seemed sort of biere de garde-ish to me. There is some emphasis on Belgian styles but there was an IPA and the APA Mebuzzard reviewed as well, and maybe an American Wheat as well so it certainly isn't exclusively Belgian.)

Both beers I had were excellent, as was the tour and conversation. I was as impressed as I have been by any new entrant to this market over the last two years. These folks know their stuff; they also have a 15 bbl system and tons of room for more fermenters so this is no undercapitalized nano; they are going to be producing some significant volumes of good beer here I predict, although no bottling equipment yet I bet it won't be far off.

I actually had more to do back at the office so cut my visit short after 20 ounces of beer but I will be back soon.

A new member of the new breweries in Denver. Soft opening last week. The caveat here is that they only had 2 beers on tap.

Both were technically sound, so off flavors or infections.

Just off 38th and Pecos, this place is potentially large. The seating area fits 48, but the brewing area can hold an extra 70+ for parties and such. Of course this wasn't available now, but it was the first day of operations.

Great service, with the owner speaking to all patrons as they came in a sipped beer. Only 2 beers on tap, with space for 8 more. They'll produce more as they get cranking. Some Belgian styles and saisons to come.
