Golden City Brewery was founded in 1993 by two geologists, Charlie & Janine Sturdavant. They filled the old machine shop behind their historic Golden home with used dairy tanks and Charlie began brewing German-style ales. The tasting room was originally located in the sunroom of their house and provided Red Ale and Pale Ale to the local community in 1/2 gallon growlers and kegs.Arrange your visit to Golden City Brewery and discover more family-friendly attractions in Golden using our Golden day trip website.
Since that time, the operation has expanded at the same location (still their home). The carriage house has become the the tasting room, the backyard is the beer garden. The brewery is still in the machine shop, but a second level was added inside. All of the old equipment has been replaced with real beer fermenters and a slightly used gas-fired kettle. The brewery produces those now legendary Red & Pale Ales, in addition to a few other brews.

We stopped by not for a beer but a glass of their winery Pinot Gris. Not bad, a little on the sweet side. Went well with sitting in the hot sun, on their patio, and great conversation.

Such a fun place for a tasty beverage!! Wonderful covered patio garden to enjoy our libations! Wished I had gotten a flight but the lager was just what I needed to cool off from the heat! Food truck was on sight and the staff was delightful:) Will visit again!
I'm so glad we swung by! The brews were delicious. I caved and got their most popular guava sour - 10/10 recommend if you like flavorful drinks or sours ( it's not super hoppy at all so go with something else if you like darker/stronger brews). Also, the staff was super friendly! They offered recommendations and gave us several tastings so we ended up with our favorites. Felt totally welcomed. Great hospitality, great brews, great afternoon.
