    OT: Mountain Toad Brewery "Secret" pre-opening on Tuesday

    Happen to be rolling by Mtn Toad Brewery in Golden yesterday and saw cars and an open sign on MTBs front door...had to roll in to check things out. appears the owners are big riders...owner told me a story about how a toad was seen in Buff Creek while riding, became the inspiration for the Brewery. They call him Hops. (see what they did there?)

    Anyway, great vibe, fantastic garden, beer is good and branding is cool.

    check out the beer names...I wonder if Jeffco will object.

    Stopped in yesterday afternoon post-Chimpex. Great vibe so far, good to great beer, friendly staff. The IPA wasn't a full-on in-your-face hop bomb, had some malt-centered almost sweeter caramel-ish notes to start and then finished hoppier with a nice dry crispness—I liked it a lot. The wit was also very nice, easily drinkable with a hint of something in there that I can only describe as gingery—a very distinct note, very clean tasting, can't quite put my finger on it but the beer itself was also quite good. I only had a sip or two of the amber, but my impression was that it was a good representation of the style.

    They'll be open again today, closed tomorrow, then they're official grand opening is Saturday so I've been told.
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.

    I'm trying to visualize where the brewery is located. Next to the Coors Credit Union?

    Excellent review. Glad to see someone taking time to review beers in such a manner. I like the beer titles. How about 'Dakota Ridge Stout' or 'Lair O The Lager' (Both trails aren't in Golden, I know. I'm just not that creative)

    My friends who live in Littleton / Ken Caryl have the same sentiments. I am researching a good (not yet saturated) location to open a small brewery if I can get finances going; so what location do you think would do well in that region?

    If you are refering to the Golden area, I would look into the area where Pedal Pushers just moved to, around 6th & Heritage.

    Google Maps

    The South Golden area (SoGo) is without a brewery, and there are many (many) thirsty people in the surrounding neighborhoods. There is a lack of places serving beer in these parts (Wrigleys is close, but very meh..., I wont even mention Suzies)

    As a bonus, it is within walking distance to the new lightrail.
    Furthermore, there is a climbing gym going in this fall:

    https://www.earthtreksclimbing.com/g...ng-center.html

    It'd be great if someone bought the El Crapatio restaurant and served some decent food/ beer, but there is also plenty of smaller spaces to rent out to just serve beer.

    A bike shop, climbing gym, and a brewery... If you build it, they will come.

    Dude, that's awesome! Had no idea Golden was getting a climbing gym. Indoors climbing is one of my fave winter activities. Golden's getting better all the time.

    IMO the right location would be around SW plaza. Bonus points for being on the lake there in Clement Park. Right in the heart of a LOT of people and an easy draw from Roxb/K-C Ranch & Valley, etc.

    And I wouldn't worry about "competition" from Hops. That place SUCKS.
