I canít believe it took me so long to try this place. But Iíll make up for that, as it will surely be a firmly regular stop now. IMO - this is the best combination of food and beer in Denver. They might not have the depth on the beer side of a FRT, Toronado, etc, but the selection was really impressive. Also, between us and 2 other people nearby were treated to some off-menu gems in both the beer and food departments.
The Food is the real star here. Honestly, the best gastropub food iíve had anywhere. I ate myself silly and still had 4-5 things I was dying to try. Iím not sure Iíd come here to JUST drink and not eat, but on the same line, Iím not sure I could come here and NOT eat. Awesome.
Popping in to Euclid hall had me wishing I hadnít just eaten at Freshcraft. This place seems to be an upscale dining with good beer kind of place rather than a bar with good food like Freshcraft. Itís in a very cool old brick building painted a slate grey with a few tables outside in the sun. They have a small well curated taplist and an interesting looking food menu.
Grabbed some dinner here after GABF2012 with Andrew and Sofia. It was crazy busy, but once we were seated it was cool. Really great space and ambiance, seemed a bit on the pricier side, good food and decent beer menu. Friendly service.
Visited during GABF weekend
A cool place, not what I expected for some reason. Upscale look and feel. Lots of seating. 2 bars, upstairs and downstairs. Great service, food and tap list. Good tap prices, but the bottle prices seemed pretty ridiculous.
Modern upscale but still unique. Lots of wood and iron- very loud. Went in with a group on a busy night, so our server was good but it was too busy for particularly personal service. Beer selection seemed decent- I got an old favorite and one I hadnít tried. I took a bunch of non-beer people who were all pleased. The food was really tasty, everyone enjoyed what they got and especially enjoyed the poutine. Not cheap. Good for a fun night with a group or a date that wasnít a first date.
Stopped in here on my trip to Denver and man am I glad I did. Incredible food--I got the duck confit poutine--and a great beer selection. But then be sure to check out their cellar list. Things like 2012 Sucaba (I was there in 2014), 2011 BA Yeti, 2011 BA Hibernation, 2011 BA Old Ruffian, 2007 Raison díExtra, lots of Avery BA Series stuff, FW 16, etc. The prices for the food were reasonable. The prices for the beer were all over the place. Regular beer list was perfectly fine, but the cellar was really a mess. $43 for 2011 BA Yeti, $54 for 2011 BA Hibernation. OK, fine. But then $36 for La Folie Transatlantique Kriek and $43 for Dogfish Head American Beauty? I donít get it. Anyway, definitely stop in here and if youíre looking for cellar stuff it seems to be the place to go in the area.

Visited on a Tuesday for dinner with friends. This space was Soapy Smithís many years ago and was one of the spots I hung out at when I lived in Denver - fun little trip down memory lane. There is seating on both the main level, as well as the second level, along with a small patio out front. We sat at the bar on the second level. The whole restaurant feels cramped. The food menu has lot of interesting items, and the Poutine with Mushroom gravy + the brat sandwich on pretzel bread I had were both really tasty. The beer menu had a nice selection of well chosen craft beers, and the bottle list had some really great stuff, but my word are the over priced. Service was on the OK side of good. Worth checking out, right around the corner from Freshcraft so why not hit both?
82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
I stopped by this place by accident and was pleasantly surprised. The cuisine is top notch, a bit pricey but well worth it. The beer selection is very good, but listen to the waitress staff; they have some great pairings.

Beer selection wasnít amazing, but it was good enough. Bottle prices were stupid high. Service was good and food was amazing and well priced. More of a good restaurant with decent beer than a beer place with good food.
quick stop while exploring the downtown area. met up with some of the bruery folks here, too. a bit more of a dining and beverage experience than your typical beer bar (not typical burgers and beers). taplist was fairly pedestrian, particularly considering some of the other places in town. a bit more of a laid back atmosphere, despite being fairly busy.
