At Briar Common, we’re committed to brewing balanced and drinkable beer. We focus our efforts on American and Belgian styles, while experimenting with lagers and sours.


Greg Dawson

Greg’s love affair with beer reached new heights nearly 10 years ago when he brewed his first batch on the stove-top of his small Korean apartment. After 11 years living in Seoul, he joined Kent in Denver in 2013 to start-up Briar Common. As a Certified Cicerone® and a BJCP judge, Greg continues to learn and love everything about our favorite beverage.
