Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew is a brewery and taproom located at 2810 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80205. Their goal is to use local sources to brew local ales. As a small maltstery, they have more influence over the quality and freshness of the beers they pour in their taproom, and more opportunities to source their ingredients locally. 100 percent of their barley is grown right in Colorado. And as much as possible, they source their hops and specialty ingredients from farms in their state.

Nicole W. from Denver, CO says: ” I finally meanered over here, it’s barely a stones throw from my house, but when they first opened their hours were “whenever we make enough beer” type of thing. Well, homey don’t play that. You are open or you are not… So they eventually got their act together and are open during posted hours! I was pleasantly surprised by a number of their beers, and will definitely be back to enjoy a couple more. There is a patio, a garage door to let the nice weather in, plenty of long tables to chill with friend and strangers. The staff is very nice, and then i enjoyed the decor! We did go on a cool Saturday early evening and didn’t have to fight the masses too much!”
Ron L. from Denver, CO says: “My girlfriend and I love to hit this place up on a regular basis. Really neat artwork on the outside of the building and the tasting room is open, warm and inviting. Most importantly their beer is great. I really enjoy their coffee stout on nitro as it is very refreshing after riding my bicycle down here. Really all of their beers are great, it just depends what I’m in the mood for at the time. Refreshing saison and hoppy pale and IPA. While I really enjoy their beer, I have had better at some of the other breweries around town and feel these guys have room for some improvement. I would agree with one other reviewer that this place has a nerdy atmosphere which is why I might like it so much…. I am an Engineer (-nerd). They offer $1 tasters of their beer which is great for newbies to the bar who want to try all of their beer in one visit.”
Daniela B. from Denver, CO says: “Another amazing addition to the Denver brewing scene. The tap room is an amazing space with a cozy inside room with bar tables and fireplace and a nice outside patio. Their beers are amazing, especially the saison.”
