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.

  • 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.

  • Met my daughter in Golden for an evening of ‘us.’ I ordered the Firefly. It was really juicy, hazy, refreshing. Great little patio to sit on. Nearly full outdoors, people respecting each other...

  • This is not the brewery you know about from Golden, it is one you will not forget after going there for a cold one! Quick service and tasty brew options, you can even get one in a collector’s glass. Plenty of outdoor seating near the heart of Golden. Great place to visit any time of year and they always have a tasty food truck for those that want a bite with their brew. Great social gathering place and friendly staff. Drink up!
  • 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!
