These guys make great beer! Strange Brewing is located in a small commercial strip mall, a one-story white cinderblock building with limited dedicated parking in front. Along the front facade is a metal awning and hop vines growing at an angle. Inside is their 10-chair wooden bar with hop vines inlaid on top. In front are several tables and the place is lit with string lights and distinctive hop-shaped lamps. The walls are decorated with local art. There is a pinball machine, a television for sports, and good background music is playing. Behind the bar is the brewhouse with stainless steel brewing vessels and fermenters. The service is efficient and attentive. They do not have a kitchen but they sell pretzels and brats, and you are welcome to bring in your own food. Behind the bar are tap handles and chalkboards listing their draft beer. They have 18 house beers on tap, which are available by glass or sampler flight. They also offer growlers to go, and they have just recently started hand-bottling a few varieties of their beer. Their beer is boldly flavorful and features well balanced specialty ingredients. I highly recommend the Vanilla Rum Porter or Dr. StrangeLove Barleywine (11.5% abv), and I was most impressed with the perfection of their 1000 Barrels Imperial IPA (8.3%). Strange Brewing is a craft beer drinkers delight with quick service and an awesome offering.

The low score is an outstanding 90 for a reason in all these reviews: This place is great.

There's a deceptively large amount of space in this place, though it has a cozy feel. Of all the breweries I visit, this one is near the top as far as a place to have a beer and strike up a conversation with a stranger.

And the beer is excellent. Paint it Black is one of the best stouts I've had. Their other styles are done very well in my experience too.

They cook up food on busier days it seems, and I think they have some food going on Tuesday as well. But last time I was here a guy had some ribs he brought in and he was sharing them with us and others, that's the type of experience you can expect here. They sell little stuff like hot pretzels too.

Not a bad location, it's in a low traffic industrial area just south of Mile High Field. Bike paths, I25, Federal blvd and Colfax are all really close by, so pretty accessible.

Service is good, very friendly.

Strange is an excellent young brewery. In an industrial part of town near the Broncos stadium. They have the garage doors up on nice days and cook some grub outside, pulled pork and pretzels, etc. The staff is fantastic and the bar has dried hop vines laquered into it. There is some good art work and the Colorado beer map has a place of prominence at the end of the bar. The beer is top shelf, IPAphany is delicious with Cascade and Simcoe hops and their Strange Pale has a great finish. Drafts are $5 a pop, but they do have a dollar off coupon on their website. Great name, great brewery. I'll be sure to get back to this one.

I discovered Strange last fall and it's awesome. Every time I go in there's something new and delicious on tap as well, the atmosphere keeps getting better. There's always really good and interesting people hanging out and they're now opening up a beer garden in back! The brewhouse is visible and a really nice set-up. There's a really good food-truck on Thurs & the weekends with steaks and good eats. Once you discover, you will be back. Their honey coffee stout ranks as one of my favorite stouts and they have some awesome cherry beers in which I wasn't a 'fruit' beer fan til trying these...Cheers!

In anticipation of seeing a Rockies game for free, we stopped by Strange Brewing on the recommendation of a waittress in Aurora who claimed it as her "new find."

Tucked away in a business strip off I-25, it's a bit hard to find but worth it.

I liked they're "out of the way" feel yet inviting atmosphere with long but small rails along the wall to sit and sip and the 10-seater bar with foot rail. Few places have these any more and I LOVE 'em!

10 beers on tap including an incredible Cherry Bomb Stout and delicious Saison that simply melts in your mouth, these brews have something to say and they are speaking right at you. We would have tried them all but after a Mother's Day rush, they were out of the flagship Tainted Black and Kreik.

Only open a year, they have a bit of work to do to publicize who and where they are but as long as they don't mess with the material, bastardize their brew - I suspect they will be around for as long as they like in Denver's crowded beer "stadium."

Never saw the game, by the way -- after a beer here, didn't seem to matter as much.

So, as they say, be bold - be different - bring something Strange home tonight!

Awesome new brewery in Denver. This place is hidden away in a tiny strip mall by the freeway, sort of near Invesco Field, but it's worth finding. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you go in, the smell of brewing beer washes over you,and life is good. The bar is hop flowers on the vine with a clear resin over it. Pretty cool.

They have a decently large selection of some truly unique beers. You might even call them... strange. Sorry. Couldn't help it.

They have a cherry beer that literally tastes like cherry pie, their farmhouse is amazing, their black IPA is just as good, and their vanilla rum porter is also great. They'll typically also have something outside their normal lineup on tap too. One time they had three different styles of barleywines on tap. That was a good day. They don't have food, but they do have peanuts and pretzels. Also, since it's usually not too busy, the service is awesome. They also have a coupon available on their website for a dollar off a pint.

This is a true brewery only type of place. Don't come here expecting to get food, but do come here expecting well crafted beer. Definitely try to Barley Wine selection. I also really liked the Tainted Black Pale, Cherry Bomb Stout, and the Cherry Kriek. The Porters are very good as well. This is a great Denver upstart brewery in the Mile High City. You should definitely check it out!

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

I stopped in a few days ago to have a look at the area's newest brewery. Upon my visit, they had four beers on tap: a pale, a black IPA, a wit, and an imperial stout - I tried all, and thoroughly enjoyed each beer. The wit carried strong notes of coriander and banana, fairly reminiscent of New Belgium's Mothership Wit. The imperial stout was on a nitro tap; the bottom part of the glass finished a little rougher than the start. All in all, great beers; I can honestly say I would go out of my way to drink any of their brews again.

Atmosphere was nothing too impressive, but it's a small brewery. A few stools and a bar in front of the equipment gets the job done; free peanuts and two flatscreens playing sports were a nice bonus. No free samples, no happy hour. Pints are $5, but check out their site for a $1 off pint coupon.

Some friends and I went to Strange Brewing Co. last night for the first time. We had the Farmhouse, and it was glorious. The place is small, but intimate, with a need to build out for future customers. The selections was good, but cannot comment on anything but the farmhouse, as we left after one quick beer. I will be back for sure!

I look forward to what seems to be a good new brewery expanding their wares.
