Stopped here first and then to Bootstrap Brew Pub. Beers were ok. Bartender was nice. Made small talk and had a flight to move on to final destination of Loveland. I was so taken by the town of Niwot that the beers were secondary. They...More

We stopped on a slow Sunday afternoon for a beer and were pleasantly drawn into conversation with the bartender Nick. His knowledge of beer was impressive. We were pleased to see he greeted and treated all his customers with the same friendly courtesy and respect....More

This is a nice local venue to listen to music. Although not a huge beer lover, I have enjoyed their darker brews on several occasions. The problem here is that they run out of food and the two wines they offer consistently. The best bartenders...More

Hubby and I wanted to escape the busyness of Boulder and Golden and relax. We found a great place to hang out in Powder Keg Brewing. We liked it so much we booked our vacation in Niwot!

I really, really want to like this place... yet, it feels so... sterile. I'm not sure if it's just the bright, bright lights that seem as if we are in a jewelry store with lights trained on rings and bracelets for effect. There must be...More

Great location in downtown Niwot...Good music venue, but the beer is less than average, they really don't offer anything else and they don't have real food...only pre made snacks..doubt it will last much longer now that 1914 house is open right next to it.

We had Dream stealer stout Center of the Earth Amber, both were unique as tasty. Atmosphere was new and clean. Niwot is a cool town with great beer

We stopped into Powder Keg before a visit to Avery later in the evening. It's nice to see Niwot getting more options and breweries of late because this has been a little sleepy town for a while. The atmosphere at Powder keg is great. They...More

This is by all means a "Brew Pub" they make their own Beer. A little like a British Pub. Don't come here for the food. Although, the microwave Chicken Pot Pie, was relative good. Very much a drinking establishment. Very clean and friendly, but a...More
