Golden City Brewery, Golden

4.4
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.

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.

  • It is mainly just an outdoor patio with good beers and lots of picnic tables. They used to promote themselves as the 2nd largest brewery in Golden...wink, wink.  more »

  • Great beer. Kind of a whole in the wall vibe with a small indoor area and a nice outdoor patio. Just off beautiful Clear Creek. Good value on beer brats.
  • Wonderful beers of every style. They don't specialize in one particular type, which I enjoy. The brewers and owners have a passion for the craft, and for customer service. They also have some decent restaurants around that will deliver, good food truck options, snack selection (their ghost pepper ranch is delicious!), and great service. The setting is old school and comfy, I really like it. Awesome patio too. And of course, the beers are the star of the show. Haven't been disappointed in one yet!
