Its a big square warehouse building with a big mural painted on it. Looks very plain and from the outside its hard to tell what it is. You walk in and there's a huge dining room on the right with white table cloth, and I'm thinking what kind of brewpub is this? Left is another room with more white table clothed tables, and a square bar right in the middle. Local artist's painting's on the walls, and for sale. Definitely high scale compared to the others. Another thing that stood out at the bar was a big selection of aged scotches, looked pretty pricy.
I met the brewmaster Alan and gave me a tour of the brewing facility. This guy does know his beer, and afterwards we sat down and talked some more. The staff there is good. Friendly and courteous. The food was great too. Where else would you find a brewpub with thing like crab cakes, Colorado lamb, Colorado pork, and corned elk? Fancier fare, and the food was great.
The beer selection is good too. I had about 10 different beers while I was there, and I believe there are 30 styles the brewmaster rotates every year. The beer was good, and I would definitely come back.

I have been to the Warehouse twice, once for a sour beer tasting (in partnership with Coaltrain Liquor, the best place in the city for beer advocacy) and for a jazz festival. The place looks pretty classy from the outside. Almost like a train stop/industrial warehouse with a big iron sign. Inside it is a warehouse, but with a very appealing mixture of iron/brick industrial feel and classy urban art. The main room is a long rectangle and can be transformed from the usual eatery to a small concert hall, or pretty much anything. The beer list is good and covers some locals and well known craft brewers but isn't on the level of a tap house. They have an impressive wine list, some good single malt scotch, martinis and margaritas. The food that I ate (prepared by the chef to pair with the sour beer tasting) was very good and well presented. I highly recommend this place if you live in the area or are passing through.

The Warehou used to be much better than it is. Well, as far as beer goes that is. A few years ago they had a great brewer and he was always trying new styles. Unfortunately, they decided brewing was too expensive and ended the program. Since then they have always talked about starting up again, but it has not happened.
The atmosphere is great. Really nice building. The food is pretty good as well. I'd say it's a bit pricey though. Service is usually decent.
They do have twelve guest beers on tap, but nothing special. Usually stuff from Bristol, New Belgium, Macro Pop...

I stopped through here quickly earlier these week just to see what this place was like. It's an interesting mix of brewpub/restaurant ("The Warehouse") and art gallery. As other reviewers have noted, the brewpub is abutted by a upscale dining room. Though they weren't yet serving dinner, when I stopped by, I got the feeling that this place does a good dinner business.
Given that, the beers seem to be a second priority, as there were only four on tap (though my server did mention that they have a new brewer who is learning the equipment). Their trippel stood out as strong and enjoyable, but even now I struggle to even remember anything--good or bad--about the other three.
They don't offer a sampler, but the bartender/server was willing to give me free tastes of everything, a nice touch I thought. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to keep me interested, and I doubt that I'll return (coming for a meal might be the only exception)--there are just too many other more interesting places in the Springs area to check out.

I didn't know what to expect here. Apparently VENOM speaks well of it, but a guy I work with (non BA) didn't, and it looks like nothing on the outside. The long and the short of it is that I now trust VENOM's opinion more than the guy at work.
Other than the bar with their own taps this doesn't look like any brewpub Ive ever been in. This looked more like what I would envision a back alley five star restaurant to be. Sort of broken down and ugly on the outside, beautiful well decorated inside. There are several large rooms inside, one with a very nice square bar in the middle. All of the rooms are decorated with what I believe is local artist's work, including a painting of a crushed Budweiser can right next to the bar (commentary perhaps?).
Very friendly and attentive staff that served some of the best food Ive had at a brewpub. I had a porkchop that was a good 3 inches think and Im confident it was the best chop Ive ever had at a restaurant. I'll have to go back to try more of the very interesting and varied menu. Oh yes and of course I have no complaints about the beer.

Not an impressive outside - The Warehouse Restaurant is aptly named. But inside it has charm - warm staff, friendly waitresses. I met the brew master, Alan Stiles, and he gave me a tour of the premesis. Very nice setup. Stainless steel tanks and miles of hose connect the parts of the brewing facilities located on different floors in this old building. Alan has been in charge here for four years and has mastered his craft. The food is great - from Trout appetizers to Cajun Alligator and Elk Reuben Sandwiches, give this place a visit!
