Like a fresh beer poured quickly, Dry Dock's tap room has foamed up and over the sides in the past few 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. The brewery and tap room now feature 170 seats, along with tables and a fireplace, shuffleboard and other games, and a stack of menus for ordering food to be delivered; there's also an attached home-brew shop where you can sip while you shop. And then there's the ever-changing lineup of award-winning beers, served on tap and in firkins. Dry Dock is the perfect place to make port.
