3.57/5  rDev -12.1%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.5

Vibe - small bar, but plenty of searing inside and a fair amount outside. Hidden off of Parker road, but the place is decent size with plenty of parking and room for a food truck.
Quality - I'm not in love with anyone of their beers, but nothing I've had is terrible. They certainly have a following, especially with the Mexican chocolate stout.
Service - I can imagine this score would be lower if I had been in during a busy time; there's a lot of room for patrons, but doesn't appear to be a lot for employees, other than in the brewery behind the taproom. Our beer tender/server was friendly and timely.
Selection - about 5 year round offerings, 3 barrel aged and 4 seasonal/rotating; growler fills and bombers available.
Overall - cool enough place, but with so many other options, I'll likely look elsewhere.

Not much bottled, everything on tap and growlers. The Mexican chocolate was the game changer; unique flavors never found elsewhere.

Industrial park vibe, more of a working brewery with a small tasting room set up. Fairly nice though, TVs, tall tables, welcoming, with a decent patio out front too.

Quality was above average, I had a taster tray and was pleased with everything I tried. No real standouts though. Selection was nice, they had about a dozen beers with some variety and a couple of unique offerings as well.

Service was generally good, two people were working and they were both pleasant and prompt. It was not really busy so they were fairly eager to help.

Overall, a pretty decent little place. Not somewhere I'd go out of my way to check out though.

A-Copper Kettles is kinda hidden in suburbia in a strip-mall type shopping center 10 miles southeast of downtown Denver. The seating area is pretty small with maybe ten tables and a bank of couches, as well as a very small bar. The vibe is clean, bright, and mellow. The crowd seems to be mixed in age from 20-somethings to middle-aged and there was a friendly golden retriever that patrolled the seating area. There is a medium size patio in the parking lot.

Sel-The beers on offer were all Copper Kettle and they ranged from bourbon-barrel aged stouts to wheat beers on the day I visited. There were about 10 tap offerings.

Ser-Our waitress was great. She was knowledgeable about the beers on the menu, friendly, prompt, and willing to put up with our indecision as we tried to figure out what bottles to order for take away.

Q-I really like the stouts I have tried from Copper Kettle, but the lighter beers and IPAs are merely middle of the road. All the beers I tasted on the day I visited were poured in proper glasses and served at appropriate temperatures.

V-The Copper Kettle prices were in line or slightly above average for the area.

O-I like the darker Copper Kettle beers a lot and the brewery is pleasant. The stouts and barleywines, in particular, are really good, but I don't live nearby, and I doubt that I'll make the 30-minute drive to visit the brewery that often. That is not to say that the brewery is a bad place to be, but I can get most of the beers in bottles and there is nothing about the brewery that makes me want to drive out to the random location to drink there.
