The Smiling Toad is located on the corner of Sheldon Ave and 21st street just one block north of Highway 24. The original “Toad” was out east on Bijou St. before moving to the west side location on 8th St. After a few years there, we purchased the old Thirsty’s Tavern and renovated it to make one of the largest brewery taprooms in Colorado Springs.

The current location provides a great brewery experience and a 10 barrel brewing system. The brewing operation is located on the bottom floor of the building while the taproom is upstairs. We also have an incredible patio deck on the south side of the building that provides an amazing view of the mountains.
