About Us

Avant Garde Aleworks, founded in 2019, is Estes Park's newest craft brewery. Head brewer and founder Christian Newendorp opened the taproom to share his love of European style beers with the community. With fourteen taps and a beer selection that rotates seasonally, there's sure to be a beer or hard seltzer on tap to please every palate.

Located off of Highway 7, behind the Napa Auto Parts, our taproom and beer garden are the perfect place to enjoy a beer or two while taking in breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains. Our taproom is family and pet friendly (inside & out!), so round up the whole gang and stop on by. Summer attractions include food trucks, live music, movie nights, and an incredible view of the annual Fourth of July fireworks show.

We would love to pour you a beer next time you're in town & we also have plenty of beer to-go if you want to take home a liquid souvenir. Cheers!
