Dry Dock Brewing Co.
Dry Dock Brewing Company was the first brewery to open in Aurora, Colorado. A decade ago, owners Kevin DeLange and Michelle Reding expanded their homebrew shop, the Brew Hut, by adding a seven BBL brewhouse and tasting room in the back room. By word of mouth, the 900-square-foot brewery established itself early on as a community gathering place, and Aurora's microbrewery. North Dock is Dry Dock's production facility. In 2013, the 30,000-square-foot building became home to the bulk of our brewing operations and all of the canning and bottling. North Dock includes the Canoe Room Tap Room that serves 12 taps of Dry Dock beer on draft, and the Dock, Dry Dock's 18-hole disc golf course. North Dock also offers tours on Saturdays.
