Just off the Platte River Trail and near the pedestrian/bike bridges over the Platte and over I-25. Seven beers on tap, a Hefe, pale ale, saison, cherry brown, stout, scotch and "Smokey Denver Male Ale." And a cider on tap. Interesting mix of styles. Buy your beer at the bar, no nonsense. Lively but not crowded on a Thursday night.
Place must be nice in the warmer months with the wall of roll-up garage-style windows facing south, with the big patio.
Pizza truck with wood-fired oven parked on the sidewalk. A little too dog friendly for my taste. Loud music booming in the hardscape space. Concrete floors, minimal but jolly decor. Copper brew kettles.

This place is a great addition to Denver. The location is great, and the building is pretty cool. The beers are pretty good. They have a few different beers than your normal IPA, PA, Stout. I had a pineapple beer that was quite refreshing. When I was there they had an excellent food truck outside making some fancy food for reasonable prices. They also had a bluegrass band playing that was excellent. Besides Falling Rock this is my favorite beer destination in Denver.

Stopped here to meet a BA as part of my reverse beer haul expedition. Only had a pint or two so don't put too much credence in the quality, although I was happy with what I had. The place did have a nice atmosphere, with a large open door allowing fresh air to come in. Outdoor seating was available as well. Yet another brewery in Denver with many more to come. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

the best thing about this place is its beer, and thats maybe how it should be. its a pretty generic type of place in denver these days, garage doors opening to an outside seating area, high wood tables and stools around, some christmas lights, a big wrap around wooden bar, board games, young professionals etc etc etc. the beer is great though, especialy the two beers on right now that feature the nelson sauvin hops. delicious and surprising. service didnt seem to give a crap, but i just got my beers from the bar from equally dispassionate attendants. whatever, the beers were good and fairly priced. ill be back at some point.

I love the concept of a brewery with a tasting room and a rotating cast of food trucks outside. But I'm not a big fan of having no regular lineup of beers. It seems weird to me that they don't have at least two or three beers that they keep on tap all the time.
It's hard to judge the consistency of a brewery's beers when the lineup is completely different every time I visit. I've been there three times and have yet to have a beer that made me wish I could try it again, though, so perhaps it doesn't matter after all.
The service at the bar is indifferent at best, too, which gets really old, really fast. I'll stick with Wit's End, Strange Brewing, and Copper Kettle.

A perfect beer garden atmosphere. You can sit inside or outside depending on your desire. The patio is large and usually very open especially in the cold. There are some heater that can be turned on. Just ask one of the employees and they will assist. The dog friendly atmosphere is a breath of fresh air and one of the main reasons I will continue to drive the distance to go. The beers are on a constant rotation, it's always a treasure to see what new brews they have made and whats in store. The food trucks are always delicious as well, another enjoyable feature I look forward too when at DBC. I have never had a bad beer from them. Maybe one I haven't liked, not due to quality but palette. Its fairly obvious when you get there if you want a beer go to the bar. They are usually busy and if you want something go up and get it. The bar staff is always friendly and many of them remembered my name after only a few times. Selection is always good like I said earlier. A nice rotation of beers. Beers are typical prices for a beer garden both for 10oz higher gravity beers and growlers. The owner have hung around many times later at night and have always been willing to talk about their beers and selections. Unlike some other beer gardens around. Did I mention they are dog friendly . Them and Renegade are the only two beer gardens around allowing dogs on leash inside. I hear the Tavern Uptown allows dogs on leash on the patio area, although I have not been there myself. For all of you dog owners out there keep letting more dog owners know so they can rate and chime in about the pleasure of such an experience. There have been some haters on here and other sites not happy about the dogs. Probably cause the dogs they have can't be taken to a public place anyways due to misbehavior.

Happened to be in town for "beercation" with my husband during the grand opening. Atmosphere was great...everyone there was very knowledgeable about beer. I'm sure that the grand opening brought a possibly better crowd...but regardless I think this place would have a nice atmosphere given the great set-up they have. Large bar with open air entrances to an outdoor beer garden...excellent. Quality of the beer was awesome. Graham Cracker Porter was particularly memorable, as in I have dreams about going to Denver in order to score a growler of it. Service was wonderful. Very, very attentive owners...I was glad to see how truly invested they are in what they are doing!
Selection was obviously limited, but I had NO qualms about it. Sometimes quality is better than quantity and while it is nice to have both, DBC offered a few high quality brews and that is a-ok with me. Food was non-existent other than soft pretzels and a food truck...I hope they can get a kitchen up and running.
Overall, you MUST go here if you are in the area. I miss it...I hope to go back soon!

Cool garage type space with rollup doors feels very open and inviting with its rustic "wash n wear" minimalism. Classy garage?
Beer here was solid for sure. I enjoyed the IPA and especially the Graham Cracker Porter which was freshly tapped. At least 7 or so beers on tap, but could have been just for GABF, dunno.
Pretty simple setup. No food, walk-up counter sevice for beer and no other "entertainment" options. Not that I need anything besides good beer, but there was no music and no TVs for the sportsfans.

Visited here during my off night from GABF with some friends from home and new friends made while in Denver. Small industrial looking building on the outside and inside. Open air with three garage doors up, which was welcome on a sunny warm day. Place was full but not packed at midday. Decent selection of brews. I only tried the saison, but my friends tried the hibiscus wheat and hefe. Overall beers were good. Small brewery off to one side of the buidling, also open.
As noted by others, no wait staff, had to go to bar to order beers. Feedback from some of my buds was that bartender was not too knowledgeable.
Only food we saw was their soft pretzels inside and a sausage truck parked out front, but we didn't try anything but the beer.
A little off the beaten path, but worth a stop. Compared to our other stops this day, prices were a little steep.

Stopped in here tonight after weeks of nagging myself. Easy place to find, easier than it was a couple months ago when I was going help grow some hops. Oh well. Parking sucks, but that's Denver for ya.
Medium sized, open patio with German beer hall-like benches. I like that type of seating. Three garage doors open to reveal the inside portion. Scattered square and circular tables. Nice L-shaped bar. Interior is 'industrial' in the look. Metal plating around the bar.
A knee-wall separates the brewing facility from the bar. No glass separation so it must smell nice when brewing.
Chalk board on the end of the L-bar lists beers, but kind of hard to see from the other end. No wait staff, bar service only. No biggie
Friendly service. The beer is really nice. They're all seasonal, I was told. The flight of 7 beers was $7...not a bad deal. Each beer was $5 except the session which was $4. Food consists of large pretzels/mustard, and a vendor booth outside...pizza tonight. I didn't try it.
Overall , this is a nice place to have some brews. I'll be heading back for sure
