The 2nd largest brewery in Golden offers a commendable selection of craft brews in a no-frills environment. Students from the Mining School don't seem to mind that it closes early (the owner lives next door and doesn't want to upset his neighbors) as long as they have a place to play Cribbage and sing some songs...while enjoying a few pints, of course.

GCB is reminiscent of a European pub where locals gather to catch-up and visitors are welcomed just the same. Make sure you stay until closing in order to enjoy the singing.

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."
