Where family and friends share good company, good vibes, and a celebration of local love through hand-crafted beer, classic cocktails, and the food we serve.
DC Oakes began as a dream between friends, sketched out on beer stained coasters, between kids’ soccer games, front porches, and backyard BBQs. We built DC Oa…kes as a place for our friends and family to come together and share good company, good vibes, and to celebrate local love through hand-crafted beer, classic cocktails, and the food we serve. We share our passion with you by showcasing local craftsmen, food producers, farmers, and giving back to the community we call home. Our namesake, Daniel Chessman Oakes was one of Colorado’s earliest settlers, opening the State’s first sawmill and lumber yard, served as one of the first members of the Denver City Council. We pay homage to this pioneering spirit through DC Oakes. Much like Colorado itself, beer making is deeply rooted in a history of inventors, adventurers, and risk takers. All of these people share a love for Colorado, and we want to celebrate that with you. With over six decades of professional experience in the restaurant and brewing industries, the DC Oakes team welcomes you to share a seat at the table with us.
