When a new restaurant/brewery opened up this close to my house (under 5 miles!), you know I couldn’t wait to try it out. It’s in an unassuming little strip mall, but don’t let that put you off. Friendly atmosphere, good beer and pretty good pizza make this a fun hangout. I’ll definitely be back to try another brew and a different slice.
Location: 8931 Harlan Street, Westminster, CO
Claim to Fame: Up to 20 beers on tap, some made in-house, some brought in for a limited time, including gluten-free beer. They also serve fresh artisan pizzas, sandwiches, giant pretzels, and salads and have a limited selection of wines.
What we tried: We started with a giant pretzel, which was very tasty—especially with the mustards provided! Shared a large Italian salad, which was fresh and full of goodies, and a pick-your-own pizza with sausage, black olives and mushrooms. The pizza has a medium-thin crust—not crispy, but not too bready either. We also liked the beers we tried (though I can’t for the life of me remember which they were—sign of a good brew???)
Favorites: The pizza was the standout of our meal. I’d love to go back and
Unexpected: I really wasn’t expecting such a huge tap selection from such a small place! Something to please everybody, for sure. Plus, they have a large selection of gluten-free items—I haven’t tried them, but it’s certainly nice to have the option.
Atmosphere: Bright and family-friendly with live music several nights a week, trivia nights, and “beer and board games” nights. This place definitely wants to be your local hangout.
Kid-friendly?: Yes! Surprisingly kid-friendly for a brewpub. Family-friendly atmosphere, and what kid doesn’t like pizza?
