About

Avant Garde is a French phrase meaning new and unusual or experimental, and it describes the approach that we take when brewing each of our beers on-site.

Drawing inspiration from our travels in Belgium and France, we aim to provide a completely unique, old-world experience. We want to bring the flavors and aesthetics we love back to the Rocky Mountains.

Set in the historic town of Estes Park, Colorado, we invite you to enjoy a beer in our brand-new taproom and relax in our beer garden with an incredible view of the Lumpy Ridge mountain range.

At Avant Garde Aleworks we strive to integrate ancient aging methods and unique twists in order to provide a one-of-a-kind drinking experience. We look forward to seeing you in the taproom and hope that you make Avant Garde a part of your mountain escape.
