Sunday night in August. Not a bad walk from downtown or the ballpark, but oddly situated right along I-25. The place borders on the authentic German beer hall, despite the unfortunate location. Unfortunately I found the staff to be utterly aloof and completely disinterested in my presence, if at least efficient in delivering me a beer. I had one beer, which was a great German representative. But I was so off-put by the lack of warmth, I didn’t stay (lots of other places to explore within walking distance). The lack of crowd was an equal indicator. (Brewery #642)

I thought this place was fantastic. truly authentic german lagers that were all very tasty. I had the pils and kolsch, both were amazing! ambience is great-lots of friendly people with a good size beer garden where you can bring your dog. service was easy-go to the bar and get your beer with no line. This is a top place in Denver if you ask me.

really liked the concept of this place, something I wish we saw more of in the US, or at least on the west coast. the place itself certainly has a German feel to it and all their beers are traditional German styles. for the most part the beers were good, but I was told they have a lot of inconsistency. too bad. service was handled at the bar and was quite friendly and quick. there’s a lot of long picnic/community tables around and some patio seating as well. the weird thing about this place is the parking: there basically isn’t any. you kind of have to pull up on the sidewalk and just on the empty space in front of the brewery.

If you like German styled beers, this is a mandatory stop. Prost is a large beer hall, of course. They even shipped their brewhouse from Germany and the swag seems vaguely military or uniform with the PB patches over the breast. There were 8 different beers on tap. The three I tasted were impeccably clean and true to style. Arguably the finest American made Dunkel, Dunkel Weis or German Pilsner I’ve ever tasted. There is no food available here other than warm pretzels. The prices per glass are widely varied, but after I realized each beer comes in the appropriate German glass, thus resulting in widely varied volumes, it made sense.

Cool German themed brewery in Denver. 5-6 beers on tap when we visited during the week of GABF. All were german style beers, most were pretty good representatives of the style. I wish this brewery was around when I lived in Colorado. I would definitely grab a couple of liters before here before walking to a Rockies game.

Nice brewery in Denver - near the aquarium. Solid standard German-style beers. Not sure if there was food or not, but a bratwurst cart was out front.

[This place started off strong last year, but has not really kept pace - dispite their huge system, they tend to only have three beers on tap at a time - new brews are infrequent, which would be fine if the quality were high, but that is often not the case - in addition, they’ve been hiring staff that doesn’t know jack about beer - if I order "the hefeweizen" and you have no idea what the hell I’m talking about, then you have no business working in a brewery - I never come here anymore] Large beer hall with plenty of interior space and a decent sized patio overlooking downtown/Coors field (there is some construction around currently that dampens the vibe a bit, but hopefully that will change) - this place is 100% German - communal tables - all beers served in the proper glassware (pilsner glass, weizen, dimpled mug) - also, all beers are available in a maß as well - they also serve traditional beer "cocktails," such as radlers, made with the house beers - prices on the beers are pretty fair (5 bucks for 20 ounces of hefe is good in my book) - they have both bar and table service and the servers are quick, friendly and attentive - they only have four taps and that is all they plan to have - for some, that might not be enough, but for a strictly German place, I am totally cool with that, especially given the quality of the beer - the weizen and dunkel are quite good, but the pils is hands down the best lager made in the state - they also plan to have guest taps from anyone they contract brew for (their brewing system is so large that they have agreed to contract for other local breweries) - the current lists notes Dad and Dude’s and Crooked Stave as upcoming guest beers - a great overall vibe with truly tasty beers - between this place and Hogshead, I may just need to start looking in to moving to this side of town.

If you are into German beers then maybe take a pass on this place. I really love coming here in the afternoon. It has a patio and it overlooks the city. Their beers are pretty much spot on do you can't go wrong.

Visited November 2012.
I was a little skeptical about an all-German brewery but it turned out to be a lot of fun and the beer was pretty good. I was impressed. The problem I always have with German beer is the distinct lack of hops but the pils, dunkel, and hefe were good enough that I didn’t care. They had some live music playing which consisted of a guy in the corner singing and playing an acoustic guitar. There wasn’t much service to speak of but it didn’t bother me much as I just ordered a flight. To be honest I might go back just for a glass of the hefe. It’s also noteworthy that they produce all the wort for Crooked Stave and truck it over there. Sounds like they also do a couple of other contract brews as well.
