“Arguably One Of The Best Breweries In The State! Craft beers brewed to perfection! Numerous different styles of beer on the menu are sure to please everyone’s hops and barley taste’s! Czech Pilsner, Mexican Lager, and West Coast IPA are a few of my personal favorites. Well-appointed tap room, an outdoor patio offering plenty of shade to stay comfortable on hot days, and a fantastic crew of individuals running the show. Dog-friendly taprooms and patios are a great bonus. Welcome To Your New Favorite Brewery!”

Grab a to-go cup and explore all that Stanley has to offer. Better yet, have any of the many awesome restaurants deliver your food to Cheluna so you don’t lose valuable time sampling Javirer’s eclectic and tasty craft beer selection. This is a must-do if you live in Denver or are visiting. Cheers!” – Tim C.
