Met up with a friend here. Have a selection of in house beers here and a wide selection of other beers from other breweries. I think this was very new... it may be one to check out again but as of this moment it didn't distinguish itself from its contemporaries...

Casual urban styled setting with a very good assortment of beers on tap, featuring their own brews plus some impressive guest taps, including a personal favorite, Uncle Jacob's Stout from Avery.

Great taproom very close to my home.

I was pleasantly surprised to find "The Abyss" on tap. My first time trying this brew-and was impressed to find it on draw.

Barrels and Bottles has 5-8 taps for their own beer, plus 14-17 other guest taps, including 24 wine taps, wine slushies, and tapas. There is enough for everyone to find something they love here.

this is a neat spot right off the main drag in golden. its beauty is not only its own beers, which are super good and unique, but also its guest tap list, which is as well curated as any. the space is welcoming with open vaulted garage doors and a mellow minimalist decor. faces are friendly and there are maybe 20 or 30 taps, all top tier. they had i think five of their own beers, which are done in a little 3 barrel unit right there. i liked the razzy stout and the agave gin aged juniper ipa, both unique and well executed. prices were super fair, and the food i had was exceptional. they stretch their own mozzarella in the back, and its delightful. definitely a destination beer spot in golden, tons of personality in the beer menu with some rarities on. i had a great time here and cant wait to go back.

This is a new brewery and taproom that opened in Golden right up the street from Coors. They have a bunch of guest taps and then I think there were four of their house beers. Service was pretty good, atmosphere was nice, tap selection was pretty eclectic. I did not think the house beers I tried were very good but maybe they need to dial some things in. I got a sampler of five five ounce glasses for $12, not bad.

The newest place in Golden right now. It's also the closest craft brewery to Coors; like right across the street. Not a small place, but not huge either. Good feel to it. Thick wooden square tables give it a unique look. A small patio out front is nice, as always.

Bar seats about 12 along the back wall. They brew there, but every time I'm in none of theirs are on tap. So, that leaves the guest taps to drink. And these are pretty nice. Mostly local, or Colorado. Some Cigar City beer makes it here, and it's good to see. They have a Randle through which they pump beer over seemingly random ingredients. Kind of cool, but weird.

They do serve food, but I wouldn't call it "meal food". Just enough to satisfy a hunger and still be pretty good. Quality service. They'll work out the details over the coming months.

Also for sale are oils. Like olive oil and stuff. I know nothing about this, so will just leave it...
