the place is very tucked away and chill lookin. its an old house with a rusty old fermenter in front, when you walk in there is a few tables as well as a soda cooler full of beer. the beers we had were all above par. we even ordered a pizza that was like some totinos or somethin but damn was it good and it wasnt greasy which is a problem i notice with alot of pubs food. there is a medium sized gravel seating area with white tables. on the side of the house is an outdoor serving window which i thought was real dope. behind the seating area is a taller building which is the brewhouse and the backyard of a larger, historic looking house. the atmosphere was unparalleled throughout my entire colorado trip.

for such a small place, the amount and variety of beers on tap was very impressive. most noteably was a hoppy brown cask, evolution ipa, and a very refreshing watermelon kolsch.

I loved visiting this place! I loved that it is in a residential area. Seeing houses all around you as your sipping a delicious brew on their patio is pretty sweet!

Amazing new remodel. I really like the bathrooms and the repurposed bowing alley tables, I think from the old golden bowl. GCB has been here ever since I moved to the state 7 years ago. It is always amazing with excellent beers and a completely unique and unpretentious vibe, which is growing scarse with all the new clone a brewery types popping up all over the state. Check them out, you won't be disappointed.

This place is the best. Go kill yourself on one of the many single tracks and then stop here for a sampler.

Great local establishment. We have been coming here for years.

GCB has been around way before craft beers were "Cool"

One occasion many years ago-we were offered a free pitcher for stacking some empty kegs!

Really cool outdoor beer garden. Beers were lacking in character and were not poured properly with a lower level of carbonation which is not to my liking. Staff acted like they did not want to be there, very off putting to say the least.

Showed up just before last call. Jason and I were able to sneak in a couple of pints each. Beers were lackluster and flat. Service was the same. Guy behind the bar hated life or something.

The beer garden only and ordering from a door concept was interesting, but not interesting enough to pull me back.

Seems like they're living in the past, back when they actually were the "2nd largest brewing in Golden."
