First, they are practicing social distancing and other COVID precautions, including touchless, virtual ordering.

Nice patio area with room to spread out. Lots of interesting beers on tap including some very unique sours and IPAs. Ended taking a 4-pack and crowler to-go. They also had a food truck available, at least they did on the evening we were there.

Will definitely go back.

If I was a local, this would be a frequent stop for me. They have a nice sized beer selection, amazing tasting beer, and food trucks often. The staff was friendly and know their beer. Their ordering is all online even when seated at a table 3 feet from the bar to help protect everyone during this unique Covid time we're in.

Rock Cut is a beautiful looking brewery in Estes Park. It's away from downtown, so it does not get overrun with crowds. COVID has changed the experience for all breweries. My favorite part of going to breweries is sitting at the bar and learning about their beers. I like to ask the servers what's the best seller, what is the one the owner is most proud of, and so on. If the owner and/or brew master is around, then you can get into the hops types, yeast source and malts.

For proper social distancing and safety, you can only go in the front door and out the side door. Ordering is done by scanning a QR code on your phone. You order and pay with your phone. There are no interactions with any employees or owners. Through flights we were able to try virtually every beer they offered that day. It was an enjoyable experience. I like the breadth of options. It allows any party size to find something they like.

I would definitely come back as a social setting with friends and family. Their outdoor patio is awesome. The food truck is a nice bonus. I would not come here expecting a brewery experience while COVID is still here reeking havoc on the world.

Hi CraftBeers, and thank you so much for the detailed review! We really appreciate the kind words about the patio and brewery -- even during the COVID-related restrictions. The type of brewery experience you've detailed is exactly what we pride ourselves on providing during "normal" times. For example, we have a U-shaped bar specifically so our beertenders can engage with customers to taste beer, talk about beer, etc.; however, we're not permitted to use the bar at this time. We've been asked to keep experiences as "contactless" as possible, so it's been a challenging adjustment for us as our entire business model has had to shift. We hope to welcome you back to the taproom when some of these restrictions are lifted so we can show you what we're truly all about. Thank you again for coming in and for the feedback -- hope to see you real soon. Cheers.

Stopped in at 8:30 when they were to close at 9. Hoping to not be a burden since closing time would be approaching and no one else was there, we asked the beertender if it was okay for us to grab a quick beer. I don't remember his name, but do remember him being warm and inviting as well as very personable. He provided recommendations and chatted with us while cleaning in preparation for closing time. I enjoyed the Elixir as a fan of sours and my husband chose the Galactic Portal. Even though he doesn't usually go for IPAs he really liked this one! We will visit again when in town in the future.

Stopped in after a day of hiking, and for the first time at a brewery had to wait on an open table. Yes, maybe this was due to reduced capacity but I think it still attest to the preference of Rock Cut Brewing (because there are other options). A few highlights were the staff - super friendly, they’re dog and kid friendly, have a variety of beers but also have other drink options, and they have a great outdoor area.

We stopped here for a break after driving through RMNP (starting in Grand Lake and driving Trail Ridge Road). After the flights, we bought pints and Crowlers to go of the Snow Trace (Brut IPA). it is DELICIOUS!!!! the brewery did a great job at social distancing and providing safe, clean service.

Great beer options. My husband the beer snob loved Goblin King. I don’t usually drink beer, but I loved that they had an option for me to try and it was delicious—Le Petit Citron. Great location away from the crowded downtown streets. Very clean place too. I highly recommend checking them out for a nice, laid-back drink at the end of an exhausting day of hiking!

This is a top place to visit while in EP. Every night there is a different food truck, and you can eat on the patio next to the river, or inside. Jordan and Kirby are the owners, and they make some outstanding beers! You can just enjoy a flight, or you can learn about beer from the menu. There's a dedication wall: buy a beer for someone who may visit at another time! There are always some favorites on tap, but you need to stop in and see what's new at any given time. Enjoy!

Very safe protocols including on-line ordering from our table to reduce human interaction. Great outdoor seating area and very good beer. We enjoyed our walk along the river from our hotel both to and from Rock Cut.

This place is one of the best and one of my favorites. Great vibes all round, great energy, can't have a bad time here if you tried. Excellent beer selection. Definitely make this stop if you are in the area or even if you have to drive a short way and make a day trip. It's worth it
