Tasting Room Policies

Thank you for visiting & supporting local and independent businesses like ours!

Welcome! We are a manufacturing brewery & distillery operating inside a working garden center on a plot of farmland. We’re so glad you’re interested in visiting our unique location!

Please keep in mind we are a private family-owned establishment.  While pets are allowed, we are a production facility & retail business – not a public park, events center, or doggie daycare.  While visiting, you are ultimately responsible for your furry  companions, but our staff is trained to assess situations and enforce our policies consistently for the safety (and sanity) of you, your dogs, our staff, and our other guests!

Please note that High Hops Brewery is a 21+ establishment, and ALL guest must be of legal drinking age to be seated in designated drinking areas. 

We ask that you follow these guidelines when visiting our taproom so you and your companions have the best time possible. Please be mindful & courteous to our other guests, our performers, & food vendors.


We LOVE dogs. Friendly, leashed pets are welcome on our patio.

  • Leashed pets are welcome outside on the High Hops Brewery patio, but are not allowed inside the High Hops tasting room, The Heart Distillery tasting room/patio, or inside The Windsor Gardener store.
  • Make sure your pooch is well-behaved around other people, other dogs, & kids
  • Keep your dogs close to your table so they are not blocking pathways.
  • Keep barking and whining to a minimum.
  • Service animals are welcome inside & out (Emotional Support Animals are not recognized as working Service Animals according to the Americans With Disabilities Act.)
  • Clean up after your pet. We have doggie waste bags available outside.


All patrons must be 21+ to be seated at designated drinking areas, no exceptions. Children are allowed at High Hops Brewery, while accompanied by a parent or guardian purchasing take-home products.

Food & Drink

  • Outside alcohol (wine, spirits, beer from other manufacturers) is not permitted. It will be confiscated and you may be asked to leave. This is Colorado State Law.
