Golden City Brewery's beer garden is easy and breezy

Golden City Brewery's beer garden is easy and breezy

Relying on a sardonic sign, inscribed with the words "2nd Largest Brewery in Golden" and an arrow directing potential beer imbibers to its off-the-beaten path location in a residential Golden neighborhood, Golden City Brewery is everything that Molson Coors isn't: a ramshackle roadhouse that hands out free pretzels (hey, nothing's free anymore) and pours excellent beers (all of which are brewed on the premises) from a carriage house carryout window staffed by some of the most easygoing folks you'll ever meet.

And that kind of laidback attitude extends to the brewery's beer garden, a graveled patio strewn with picnic tables, mismatched patio furniture and a wood-burning fire pit surrounded by amateur musicians strumming their guitars and singing Grateful Dead tunes. If you have to pee, there's a port-a-potty off to one side, and if you have a dog, perfect: so does everyone else.
