WestFax Brewing Company

We love beer, beer is our passion and we want to share it with you.  Mosey on down to the west side and stop by the tap room, have some pints or maybe just a couple of tasters but either way we hope you enjoy it. 

Our delicious suds and laid back atmosphere hits the spot after a hard day’s work or for some weekend fun.  Our goal is to provide a cool place for you all to hang out and enjoy beer. 

We are on West Colfax Ave in the city of Lakewood, right next to the infamous Casa Bonita restaurant.  Head west, follow the setting sun and you'll find us here serving up great beer in a great location.
