Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you dog friendly?
A: We have what we believe is the only off leash dog park attached to a craft brewery in the United States. We worked very hard to receive special zoning from the county to allow the off leash area. As part of that deal, we agreed to make the following compromises:
**Dogs are not allowed inside (service animals excepted)
**The off leash yard has a maximum dog capacity of 20
Please visit the "Rules and Registration" link at the top of this page to register your dog prior to visiting.
Q: Are you kid friendly?
A: We are an establishment that manufactures and serves alcoholic beverages for adult consumption. We understand we are in an area with many families and wish to accommodate all of our guests to the best of our abilities.
We ask that children remain with their families and not be allowed to run throughout the space, as that can be hazardous as well as disturbing to other guests who are enjoying their visit.
We have board games and a pinball arcade which we invite all our guests to enjoy respectfully.
Please do not allow your children to climb on the arcade games, they are made of real glass and are fragile.
Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should children under the age of 13 be in the off leash area. This is for their own safety and the sanity of our insurance agent.
If we continue to see children in the off leash area we will be forced to ban all children from the premises.
Q: Do you have food?
A: We do not have our own kitchen but we have a different *food truck every day that we are open.
*We do not own or operate the food trucks, they are separate businesses which we collaborate with to ensure our guests have the best experience possible. If you would like to provide feedback or book a food truck for an event, please contact them directly.
Additionally, an Asian/American restaurant just signed the lease for unit B next door to the taproom. They will be serving breakfast and brunch during which time you can purchase our beers or mixed drinks such as mimosas and Bloody Marys. They will close after brunch and reopen for dinner, providing our taproom with either table service or a pickup window. Details are still in the works.
You may NOT take alcohol between our taproom and the restaurant next door. We are separate businesses with separate liquor licenses. This is Colorado State Law.
The Coal Mine Kitchen is slated to begin construction in Spring 2019 with an estimated build-out of 4 - 6 weeks.
Q: What kind of beers do you have?
A: We are currently brewing ales ranging from a hoppy, crisp IPA to a dark, roasty stout and anything in between.
We like to offer a solid base of flagship beers in traditional styles such as Porter, Pale, IPA and Red as well as experimenting with adjuncts.
We never use extracts in our products. All flavors come from combining ingredients in the perfect blend of grains, yeast and hops and utilize fresh adjuncts such as home made purees and fresh herbs and spices to achieve the flavor profiles we're going for.
Please visit the "Beer List" tab at the top of this page to see what is on tap today.
Q: Do you have wine, cider, hard liquor or other beers?
A: The state of Colorado has several types of liquor licenses. We were able to obtain a license to manufacture beer at our location and another license which allows us to have an on site tasting room for the beer we manufacture.
We understand this excludes some folks from being able to enjoy our space while sipping their favorite adult beverage, but we strive to provide enough variety so everyone can find something they love. We encourage you to get into the spirit of craft beer and try something new, you may find yourself with a new favorite!
We hope you understand this is a Colorado State law and not a restriction we have created.
OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED BY STATE LAW.
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Do not sneak in alcoholic beverages.
Q: Do you have gluten free beers?
A: Typically no. HOWEVER... As part of our finishing process, we use a product called "Clarity Ferm" which removes chill haze from beer. It has been shown to significantly reduce the gluten content in beers made with barley and wheat.
A Clarity Ferm treated beer made from barley or wheat will typically test below 20 ppm of gluten, which is the international threshold for brewing considered "gluten free."
We serve Trubucha Kombucha which is gluten free and non-alcoholic.
Q: Do you clean your off leash area?
A: Yes, we have multiple processes in place to ensure our off leash area and patio is clean and smelling fresh.
1. Our first step in maintaining a clean and healthy off leash play area is ensuring that our guests are picking up after their dogs.
2. Twice each week we use a pH disinfectant cleaner called "Q Force 256." This product is used in hospitals, nursing homes, public restrooms, schools, athletic facilities, veterinary clinics, kennels and more. In it's diluted form it is safe for contact with skin and not harmful to our puppy patrons. For an added measure of protection, Q Force 256 is applied when we are closed so it is dry prior to any dogs coming in contact with it.
3. On days we are not using Q Force 256, we spray the outdoor surfaces with a product called "Odo Ban." Also used by many public institutions such as schools and veterinary clinics, Odo Ban is a product that cleans, disinfects, sanitizes and deodorizes.
Q: I want to involve Coal Mine Ave Brewing in my charity/fundraising efforts.
A: We have made the decision to support only no kill domestic animal shelters. Thank you for understanding and we wish you the best of luck in your fundraising.

Q: Are you hiring?
A: We believe we have sufficient staff at the moment, but you are welcome to send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
