A Bit About Us

Our Story


Our journey began as a gift. Owner Manuel Baca received a course on brewing beer as a gift and before long he was upgrading the home brew system to accommodate full mash and adjunct brews.
It was around this time that the craft brewery  boom was happening around the Denver Metro area, so we spent a lot of  fun afternoons exploring each unique location and meeting the creative,  hard working, awesome people who were putting out fun and unique  creations, much to the delight of their guests. That's it, we were  hooked! 

Now we're delighted to bring that experience of community and craft to our corner of Littleton.

“I love this brewery! I am able to hang out with my friends and watch my dog have a wonderful time in the dog park. The beers here are phenomenal!! Could not recommend this brewery more!" 

– Emma C.

“The perfect atmosphere to drink the best version of your favorite brews during all 4 seasons! We love all of your house plants and the food trucks are significantly better than most bar kitchens! This brewery represents the Colorado lifestyle we hold so close to heart.” 

–  Tyler D.

“One of the best craft breweries in the entire Denver metro area!! I wish my boyfriend and I lived closer. Awesome waitstaff and incredible selections. Definitely coming here again AND bringing our dogs next time. Best “dog friendly” brewery I have ever seen 👍🍺❤️🐶!!”

Q: Are you dog friendly?
A: We have a 2,500 square foot off leash dog park and leashed dogs are welcome on the South patio, but we do not allow dogs inside. (service animals excepted)

Q: Are you kid friendly?
A: Well behaved kids are welcome. We ask that children not be allowed to run around the taproom. Kids under 13 are not allowed in the off leash area

​Q: What other kids of alcohol do you serve?
A: We serve only craft beer which is produced on site and the occasional craft beer guest tap. We are about to launch our first hard seltzer, Mine Water, which is a gluten-free alcoholic beverage containing fewer calories than beer.

Q: Do you have gluten free beers?
A: We use a product called "Clarity Ferm" to remove chill haze from our beers. The manufacturer states beer treated with this product tyipcally tests out at less than 20 ppm, which is enough to be considered "gluten free" based on international standards.

Our upcoming Mine Water hard seltzer line is gluten free.
