TRVE is Denver's heavy metal themed brewery, and one step inside makes that abundently clear. Located in a nondescript little spot on South Broadway, the Necrominon symbol on the front door welcomes you into a dark, dark place. Metal blasts you in the face as your eyes adjust to the darkness. And no, it isn't Poison or Godsmack or Linkin Park; it's called TRVE for a reason. You're gonna hear fast and heavy metal, so posers, take it down the street. The bar is a long slab of dark wood facing what can only be described as an Altar of Beer, surrounded by evil art, skulls and candles. The beer they serve here is excellent, and they are known for their sours, ranging from slightly tart to pure vinegar. They also have a non-sour menu, with the beer totaling almost twenty at any given time. The staff is awesome, friendly without being douchey, knowledgeable without being pretentious. The beer is so good, even people who hate metal flock here, so be prepared to mingle with all types of folks here.

TRVE fucking rules, top 3 breweries in Denver for me. Come here and experience something different.

Total metal bar; I like some metal music so was cool with it, but very loud death metal playing and a ton of people in black or graphic band tees.

Beer was really good and they had a funky and non-funky menu which was awesome.

I would definitely go back as the beers from this place were one of the hidden gems on the trip. If you're traveling with a lady friend who isn't into metal they may hate the vibe though.

No brewery has more personality. It is an incredibly enjoyable and interesting place to be. The whole vibe, music, the beers. Great range of styles. Awesome place.

I had heard good things, unfortunately I wasn't that impressed.

For one, just like other people, the vibe wasn't for me. Pitch black, metal, loud music, I wasn't expecting anything else, but I still didn't really care for it.

Quality was good, I had a nice table beer that was simple, yet flavorful. Selection was decent, about 10 beers on tap total.

Service was very indifferent, I guess it fit the vibe though? Not to mention that I left my card there, called and left a message the next morning, and never got a call back about my card.

I guess my overall impression would be go ahead and grab their beers in bottles, but you can skip the tap house unless you like the whole metal thing.
