I went here with a friend and did a flight. The offerings were ok but this place is relatively new. Very nice location and place had a positive vibe. Might check back again in the future but competition is pretty fierce in the greater Denver area....

Cool little taproom located just off the main part of downtown, Nice patio and laid back atmosphere to the place.

Around 7 beers available during my visit. Tried the IPA which was fine but not really memorable & the Brown Ale which was quite good and not just some random after-thought like some other places.

Pricing was decent. Staff very friendly, loose with the samples, even got a great recommendation for a place to eat in town.

Definitely worth a visit if in the area.

Small, but friendly with a good crowd on an early Friday afternoon. 10 beers on tap. I liked the Mt Zion IPA. You can get beers in 5, 12, or 15 oz, or a pitcher for $15.

Nice place to stop for a beer. Seems to be pretty popular with the locals and conveniently located for out of towners too. Beer selection was pretty good, but two of the beers I was hoping to try were not available. Food truck was pretty cool - wild game themed. Also has a dog friendly beer garden.

Cool local brewery. Had the rye stout, loved it. Nice porch/patio area. Inside is a little cold and sterile, but the staff is friendly and nice. Good place.

Family friendly and that includes your dog. Very laid back atmosphere. Food truck and hangout area is pretty cool. Texas needs some establishments like this.
Beer selection was pretty good and the IPA (don't remember the name) was delicious!

This is so far my all time favorite Gay Friendly Brewery in Denver/golden. The couples who run this place are very open and invite the community with open arms. They are originally from Texas and California, two of the best places to learn how to brew beer.

This place has really solid beers, a helpful/friendly staff, and the vibe is awesome in Golden at their tasting room. Their outdoor seating area is great, with views of the surrounding foothills, and there was a great food truck parked right in their sideyard the evening we were their. The Infra-Red IPA was delicious - plenty of hops and piney aroma, but balanced very nicely.

Visited Mountain Toad twice on a recent visit to Golden, CO. Nice crowd, friendly patrons and staff. Dog friendly too. There was a different food truck each day I visited. The bathrooms were clean. Local artists had pieces on the walls. I didn't eat, but both of the beers I had were good. A small batch mango IPA and the regular IPA. Inviting seating inside and out, but it was a bit cramped at times.

I spoke with Brian, one of the four owners. He was very friendly and engaging. He offered some history and informed me that they had been open for a little bit over one year. He explained that they see themselves as a true public house - where all are welcome. It did seem that many people knew each other - giving the place a real community feel. Reading some of the older reviews makes me think they have fixed some of the early complaints. I had a great time - no complaints!
