Was impressed with their new digs, I see parking is still an issue...

The multi use facility is not a new idea, but a great addition for the Springs

Beer's aren't as good as they used to be about 10 years ago, but not bad. They just aren't near as daring as they used to be

Service was good/polite

Selection was lacking about 8 different taps, but at least there were a couple of nitro options

Food choices looked promising, didn't partake

Our first stop on a self-guided brewery tour of Colorado Springs, and it was a great start to our day.
First, the taproom is in a renovated old schoolhouse that has been converted into a really cool community center. Very unique location because of that. The tap room is well-lit, very open, seemed pretty family-friendly, and have cool, knowledgeable staff.
Beers were all interesting, if not necessarily outstanding, and they had a pretty sizable selection on tap. There were also more to-go in the neighboring gift shop. Service was very good.
Food was limited, but we had some excellent baked pretzels and cheese curds. Both pretty basic but the perfect snack/nosh while trying brews.

Stopped for a flight on a Saturday Night. Beers were OK to good, nothing great. Did like the venue inside an old school, lots of people but plenty of room. Might stop again for a social occasion by if going strictly by beer there are better options in town.

Atmosphere - I really like the new location inside an old school. Very cool idea and concept.

Quality - I for one am not the largest fan of Bristol beers, but the they make decent beer all around

Service - very helpful, friendly, and made the place enjoyable

Selection - Lots to choose from here

Food - great menu with lots of varying options

Overall - if you are in the Springs this place is a must. Great fun

Brewery is in a school from the turn of the century so awesome atmosphere. Beers were sub-par for me in relation to some of the offerings locally in CO but worth a trip if not just to see the bar. The menu changes some and is pretty extensive. A ton of room and patio area so no worries about the big groups

Hey, it's a tasting room. Kind of industrial looking with glass and metal all around.

Seating is available at a small bar, some small tables and longer ones.

Classic rock tunes were playing during my visit.

The gal behind the counter was very informative when asking questions about the beer styles and availability. Friendly.

This is a fair enough place to check out Bristol and Black Fox beers that aren't available in bottles. There's no food other than pretzels, but one goes to a tasting room to - taste beer! Of course!!

Growlers, kegs, bombers, and six packs to go...
