Stopped with a friend for a flight. Flavor profiles were satisfactory but mouth feel was a little on the thin watery side. Dug the metal aspects of the place, artwork and of course the music. I am unaware if there was any food available. This place is new, so I might revisit later if new breweries ever stop popping up in Denver.

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.

Visited 12/23/15 evening

V — Really cool place, though we did drive, and walk by it completely before actually finding it, it is cleverly hidden. Inside is dimly lit, not poorly though, there are really cool, huge black and white art pieces up around the room. Long shotgun layout with a few small fermentation tanks in the back, a centrally located skinny bar. Killer sound system for a small bar, playing plenty of metal, its somehow inoffensive and just feels right. The menu is laid out simply and easy to read. Black, on black, on black, just awesome.

Q — Quality was good, all beers were served properly and quickly, kind of grungy on the inside, but not in an off putting way.

S — Service was good, all beers explained well, served quickly and professionally.

S — Selection was fair, 8 taps and two bottle selections were nice, growler fills are not worth it though, no price break for growlers and glassware was extremely overpriced, I wanted a growler to go but I wasn't going to pay $22+ for a 32oz growler this evening.

Dark and gloomy. Pretty small place tucked in between a bunch of other shops on busy street. Hard rock music playing. 8 beers on tap.

Death Metal bar with some awesome beers. Currently they only have around 8 beers on tap at a time, rarely having their sours and stouts available. really good beer tho. one of the best up and coming brewers in Colorado. also if you like metal this is the place to be. They rotate in local art work as well which i think is cool!

Vibe: Well, this sort of depends on what your idea of good vibe consists of...even if you're not into Metal (and I'm not), the vibe is lively and fun at TRVE. Sort of dark, so it's a cold-weather stop for me as opposed to a summer one.
Quality: The sours have gotten better and better. My one gripe is that of the IPA's I've had they've varied (sometimes drastically) from visit to visit.
Service: Great. Knowledgeable.
Selection: Pretty varied and good the times I've been in.
