Liberate Your Pint
We love craft beer; it's our passion, and we want to share it with you. We invite you to come by our local taproom on the border of West Denver and Lakewood. Try some of our uniquely crafted brews, and taste the most liberated beer recipes you've ever had. Our delicious suds and laid back atmosphere hit the spot after a hard day’s work or for some weekend fun with your pals. Our goal is to facilitate a welcoming and artistic place for you to hang out and enjoy world class craft beer with your local community. We can be found on West Colfax Ave in the heart of the 40 West Arts District in Lamar Station Plaza. Whether you're heading to or from the mountains, you'll find us here ready to serve you up ridiculously delicious beer.
What To Expect
Taproom:When you arrive at WestFax Brewing you can expect a large, modern, laid back taproom with a chill yet welcoming atmosphere. Our space features local artwork, an outdoor patio, a handful of big screen TVs, and plenty of high-top tables to hang out, play games, or shoot the bull. We're also dog-friendly! So whether you want to unwind with a pint at the bar or bring a group of friends in for one of our events, our taproom's ambiance will suit the experience you're craving.
Beer:We approach creating beer a bit differently than any other Colorado brewery. Quite simply, we create unique brews that we would enjoy and that we think will taste awesome. Sometimes this means using ingredient pairings that seem bizarre to some, but we're willing to take risks to make something better. We want to make beers that are a bit unorthodox in order to keep challenging the sudsy status quo. We hope to see you here soon at our brewery on the west side of Denver, trying either the beers we've become known for, or a new one that may shock you in the best way possible.

Just because a beer is dark in color, does that make it stronger? Does a color of a beer effect the level of robustness or alcohol in a beer? In our latest BeerFax beer blog episode we take on and debunk some of these questions & myths.
How are beer recipes developed and once they are do they ever change? In this episode of BeerFax we discuss how we develop beers, maintain them, and how a recipe can evolve/change.
Thanks for Making this 1st Time Event a HUGE Success! Saturday, August 18th, will remain in our hearts and minds for years to come. What a fun filled day of tasting all the breweries of Lakewood, enjoying friends, food, and live music.
