Dry Dock Brewing Company

Dry Dock Brewing started as an idea when Kevin DeLange, owner of homebrew store The Brew Hut, noticed a small, vacant space next door. He had been selling beer-making ingredients for several and would frequently host Home Brew nights to invite brewers in to share what they had created. In 2005, DeLange found used equipment, rented the space, began brewing small batches of beer, and opened the doors. As many locals will recall, this taproom had four taps with only seven bar stools and a few tables; a cozy setting to say the least.
In 2009, we moved to the corner suite of the same strip mall, expanding to seat 200, and have been brewing like maniacs ever since. Winning the Great American Beer Festival’s premier award, Small Brewing Company of the Year, later in 2009, we’ve been able to spread the gospel and pour the beer. Led by DeLange and head brewer Bill Eye, Dry Dock Brewing has become the most popular tap house in Aurora, Colorado.
