I did a flight of beers here and wanted to do another but didn't have the time. Beers are solid to very good and the selection is great. I can't wait to see what this place does when it is a little more established. Did have any food, unaware of any.

This is a good local neighborhood brewery. The owner mans the bar and you can tell he's invested in making sure people enjoy his beer. Lots of offerings on tap, many more so than you would expect from the size of the place. Nice little patio too, even though it's in a strip mall. Interested to try some more of their beers in the future if they brew up something that sounds up my alley. Oh, and the best part is that the water tap is on the back wall with the brews, and it's actually the one with the Coors Light handle. There are a few quirky things like that here, including many of the beer names. Enjoyed the sense of humor that went into creating this place. Plus they support one of my favorite charities, so bonus points for that.

decidedly different this place is, with all beers being made with an enzyme that breaks down gluten. brewed regularly, and not gluten free, but very low gluten across a wide range of styles. the place is neat, sort of esoteric and strange, less put together than most of the others around town, and i like that sort of blue collar vibe. long bar, some outside seating, and the brewery tucked away in back, apparently recently expanded, at least in terms of production capacity. i couldnt believe how many beers they had on, as many at 15 or so, looks like they must make beer most days to stay on top of it. i was impressed by the selection, but a lot less impressed by the beers i had, although i am told i didnt order that well by those who know the beers much better than i do. i liked the vanilla rye stout and the cream ale best, none were bad, but the hoppy stuff all tasted similar to me. i like that they give the gluten folks an option, and the service was really nice, just the brewer and his wife from what i could gather. real friendly and lot of samples around. a great little niche they have carved out here, and they have my respect for sure. looking forward to going back and trying the ones i missed!

Rick is a very talented brewer. Everything brewed here was done in a 15 gal keggle home brew set up. That is, until recently, i believe he finally bought a bigger system. Good vibe, excellent sound system, awesome beers, more awesome beers, some more awesome beers, and friendly people.

I Love this little nano brewery. It has a crummy location on Wadsworth, but I'm sure that relates to cheaper prices. The brewer is always doing interesting things and I always leave there entertained and happy. He brews true to style and plays around. Once I had a 14+% abv beer with the chemical extraction limit of hops. Weird yet fascinating to know what a beer like that would taste like. The beers range from good to liquid perfection. The nano brew system is inconsistent though making every batch different, but not drastically so. I go there for the beer and as a student, the price. Price vs. quality is phenomenal.

. Unassuming place just north of I-70 on Wadsworth across from FirstBank office. Basic setup with popcorn machine and focus on the beer i gather.

Full list of beers/styles with focus on IPAs. A few offerings were just average, but their double (Disturbed) and triple (Static) ipas really surprised me. Had to come back to try the double to confirm its quality and i wasnt disappointed. One of the most solid CO interpretations ive had in a while. Had a BA BW when i was there as well.

Only complaint is price of.growlers fills for said DIPA were way high.

Will be back for more drafts.

I heard a lot of good things about this place but it sits in a strip mall in a busy section of Wadsworth. I didn't have high expectations, but I was way wrong!

There was one bartender working and she was very helpful. She helped people who needed some guidance choose their beers and explained the details to someone like me who asks a lot of questions.

The beers I had (mostly barrel aged small batches) were put together really well and there was TONS to choose from, I think overall there were 16 beers on tap.

Great Beer! Great Service! Try this place out if you're in the 'burbs!

A new brewery to the Wheat Ridge scene, the location is a bit odd. Small little strip mall along Wadsworth. If it had a patio, it would be loud with the traffic. As it is, inside is fine.

Seats perhaps 50 people at the tables and bar, with some standing room here and there. Long bar and plenty o'taps for a small brewery. They just keep cranking them out. I think there were like 14 on tap when I was there. I had a couple with some samplers on the side.

Staff was friendly and met the owner/head brewer Rick and asst Josh. Both were nice as was the bar tender (didn't get her name). Overhead is sparse, but who cares, really. A couple of TVs kept the sports feed going.

Not sure about food. Popcorn machine in the corner, didn't see any food trucks--but I was there at an odd time (they just opened).

Nice beers, too. Small batches. Quite the variety. A nice little stop in northern Denver area
