Best Tap House Denver 2011 - Dry Dock Brewing Company
15120 E. Hampden Ave.
Aurora, CO 80014
Like a fresh beer poured quickly, Dry Dock's tap room has foamed up and over the sides in the past two years, attracting a regular clientele from Aurora as well as a steady stream of beer pilgrims who make the journey from the city to the suburbs. In fact, the brewery, tap room and attached home-brew shop are so popular that Dry Dock just doubled its size (to 170 seats), blowing out walls and adding space in the strip mall where it's located. The tap house also installed a fireplace and a barrel-aging section proudly displayed along an entire wall. With an ever-rotating list of eight to ten beers on tap — made right on location — and a roster of special events, Dry Dock is the perfect place to make port.
