Visited when waiting for a plane back home on October 15, 2012.
Rather crowded, only wanted to sample the beers so managed to get a seat at the window. They didnít have the seasonal, so got the 3 beers + a Blue Moon when I asked for the sample/taster. Didnít eat and only stayed for the 4 small samples of beers. Pretty good service for how full it was, seemed a bit understaffed. Not the best place to relax, but possible to try a few last beers before heading home/away.

A small super crowded brewpub at Denver airport serving average beers I have to say. Perhaps a little better than the other bars on offer but itís not a very enjoyable or relaxing experience for any traveler.

Located right by the stairway to go down to the tram station in the terminal. Fairly cramped interior, but some classy decor. Prices are on the high side, which I think is part airport, part just the nature of the place. A handful of beers on tap. Worth a stop if youíre flying on the cheapskate Frontier airline like we were.

Visited August 18, 2013 during a layover in Denver.
I only had an hour between flights but luckily this was a couple of gates from where I needed to be so I stopped in for a quick beer. They have 6 taps, of which one is Stella and one is Blue Moon.The other 4 are house taps and the seasonal keg had kicked. So basically 3 house beers to pick from: pale ale, dortmunder, and dark lager. I went with the dortmunder and it was not very good.
The server was friendly but wouldnt actually bother to serve anyone else besides the guy he was talking to about hockey. I eventually got a beer and then eventually got my tab but yeah, not an overly attentive bar tender. I didnt eat and canít comment on the food. What I did like was the power strip under the bar so I could plug in my phone and check in.
Next time Iím in terminal A Iíll just go to the beef jerky cart instead of getting a beer.
Oh, and my tab was $9.71, for 1 14oz beer...

Stopped by on my layover at DIA. This place has an elegant restaurant feel for being in a airport. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Was able to try the 4 beers they had on tap, wish they had more. Price seemed reasonable. Worth a stop in terminal A.

(Visited 05/2013): Denver ChopHouse is located in the Denver airport in Terminal A.
The interior has a bar past the entrance and a winding restaurant seating area. The tables are covered with cloth, and there are hanging lights and a stamped ceiling. In other words they do what they can to make you forget you are in an airport.
The ChopHouse carries 4 house beers, including a seasonal (Belgian IPA on my visit). They are available in a sampler. Some bottles as well, although nothing noteworthy.
Service in the dining area on our visit was pretty good. The server was familiar with the beers and was efficient.
Food at the ChopHouse is pretty good. My French dip sandwich was tasty.
Overall this is a worthwhile beer spot to visit during a layover. Denver is one of the better airports I have passed through as far as beer places.

Visited many times over the years for a quick (or leisurely) beer during Denver connections. Most recently visited with the whole family for dinner on a Sunday evening. As expected, its a bit cramped up front,where the bar is, though we were seated in a back section which was roomy by airport restaurant standards. They were serving their 4 regulars + one seasonal (Belgian IPA). Food is overpriced, perhaps slightly above average quality. Service was fast. Overall, solid airport option, and likely worth coming to Concourse A if you have an extended layover.

stopped by for a couple of beers on 04/06/12 prior to boarding my BA red-eye to LHR. Ok for an airport bar, 3 or 4 on tap and 10 bottles, kept me busy! Good service, no real atmosphere, but OK. Had some food which was good. Would happily stop by again.

DIA location. Nice bar and restaurant. Fair-to-decent brews, with 4 of their own on tap (2 lagers, 2 ales) and a few other regionals in bottles. Food and service was good. Prices are typical airport gouging, but a bit better than some of the other bars in the airport.

Brewpub and restaurant in DIA. Typical busy eatery with a big curving bar and 4 house beers on tap. Nice big pour and good service. Beers are only mediocre, but convenient if you have a short layover in terminal A.
