    OT - New Brew Pub in Golden
    There is a new craft brew pub going into the old Alpenglow building at Hwy 93 and Washington. Talked with one of the guys last night and they were hoping to have beer flowing after the first of the year :thumbsup:

    See this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/colorado-fron...ry-827141.html

    There are actually 4 breweries opening in Golden in 2013.

    The old Alpenglow spot was on Hwy. 40 and Lupine. Regardless, more places to drink beer on rides is never a bad thing.

    Me too. I special ordered my Dynastar Assaults from them. Still ski the Assaults every now and then just to prove that you don't have to have fat shaped skis to kill a run. People look at me like I'm riding a 3x8 26er or something silly.

    I was skiing a pair of these as my daily drivers until just a few years ago...



    Loved those skis.

    I've got a set in my garage now. 195s or 198s :eekster:

    Last time I used them, somebody in the chairlift line said "Hey... cool... OLD SKOOL!"

    Me, too. Back before Christy Sports owned 'em. When the owner would hand you a beer as you walked in the door...

    Is this when they were over on Colfax?

    I'm still trying to figure out why the OP put "OT" in the title of this thread... there's nothing off-topic about a brewery, is there? :confused:

    I'll be wandering over on Saturday to see what's what.

    To me the biggest difference between CC and GCB is that CC will be a full downhill ride home on a bike, whereas GCB is an uphill ride.

    Yeah. That was a better building for a kayak shop, too - plenty of room to hang boats overhead.

    I'm down. (street slang for 'that sounds delightful')

    Or with an afternoon opening, we could grunt up and down El Rancho Blanco and hit up the suds afterwards.

    I just stopped in there on my way to the office, looks like they're opening at 3pm (which I am sure is in that FB link) and they're gonna have 4-5 beers on tap depending on what's ready. They still have a lot to do from what it looked like (and what the owner/head brewer told me) but they're stoked to open.

    I did enjoy the IPA(s)...

    but I was bias, after riding for 4 hours sans food, and a few pitchers at GCB, most anything tasted good

    I will have to give 'er a nother test

    Beer was good but no food? Not even pretzels or popcorn, let alone happy hour for a grand opening? These guys are going to have to some training in customer appreciation if they are going to make it. Crowded sure as it's new but come on!....

    How does their IPA compare to GCB (one of my favorite IPAs)?

    you didnt see the food trucks outside the back door?
    They had some aps and such. Worked for me (starving, so anything tasted great)

    I thought it was smoothe. Hoppy, but not overly.
    A bit lighter and less hoppy than GCB, but quite tastey.
    A better analysis will require moar testing.

    Went Saturday, the beer was really great and the stuffed jalapeņos from the food truck (worldwide vittles) were some of the best I've had. :thumbsup:

    tried to go
    Last Friday at 5 ish, pretty good sized cluster there. No parking anywhere near the place but no way to know that until I pulled in the lot. So, unfortunately I headed home.

    Fantastic beer...always crowded....love their IPA and Dubbel. Only good/bad thing is that it is within walking distance of my house.
    Cheers.

    I still have not made it in there, it is so crowded all the time it seems. Friday at 5 pm, I called and it was standing room only. When is the other brew pub opening up? Maybe that will relieve some of the pressure.

    Ride your bike and bring your own chair (or stand), problem(s) solved.

    BY summer there will be FIVE brew pubs within walking/biking distance of my front door!
    Well, actually 4 plus Coors.
