I can back up all of the good comments about this place, it is absolutely legendary. Great hosts, great atmosphere, good food, and great beer available. Trying to maintain a rare beer selection must be hard work, but these guys try their best. The atmosphere is great, though a little too smoky, but the thousands of bottles lining the walls is a thing to see. Donít miss this one, as you are sure to find something rare. On GABF weekend this place was insane... amazing kegs being tapped throughout the night, and amazing people all around. Iíve been to Falling Rock 4 times now and it is my favorite bar in the world.

The be-all, end-all beer bar in Denver ... and anywhere west of Mississippi that Iíve found. They have 69 high-quality taps. The last day I was there this included Delerium Tremens and Maredsous 8, along with some of the better regional micros. This is definite stop on any beer loversí tour of Colorado. But be ready ... Iíve gotten good service here once in many, many visits.

Definitely a lot of great beer choices. I canít really rate it based on the GABF, so Iíll have to run with the night I first arrived in Denver. Slow night at the bar, mostly me and a couple of other judges. Service was great but then again, there was no one there. Beers were pretty damn good. Food I had during the GABF was iffy - they put orange cheese slices on the patty melt and the fries were horrible. Beer list was damn good, though, with a nice mix of standards and great unknown local stuff. Looks like a winner. Atmosphere is mostly uninteresting bric a brac but dripping with beer.

The menu is as good as its reputation. Iíve been here 4 times during GABF week, but I must say I mostly stayed in the Dr. Bill area. Service is very expeditive even in the day that was not so busy, the place was jam-packed and loud, but at this moment, you can bet that most people in there were drinking the good stuff. Owners are definitely ultimate beer geeks, big collection of related items. Iíd probably enjoy the atmosphere a lot on a calmer night. A bit expensive if anything. I wouldnít really recommend eating here, greasy pub grub mostly.

Solid beer bar and hub of beer events during GABF. Great tap list and host of mid-sized special events like Elysian pumpkin fest. During GABF events was not managed well, but more due I think to lack of foresight and experience than to bad service. They technically have the space to handle the crowds they got but did not have an intelligent beer delivery system and ended up hovering at bar for one hour just to get one beer. Too chaotic and disorganized. Would like to return during normal times. Large patio, basement with billiards, lounge space, long bar, booths, and a great beer list, what more can you want?

(Visited 10/2009): Stopped here on a recent trip to Denver, first during the Elysian Pumpkin Fest on November 10th, then again the next day for the heck of it. The bar is on Black Street on the NW part of downtown. There is plenty of street parking around (unless a Rockies game is being played I imagine).
The interior is dark with bare light fixtures and a lot of wood. The bar is on the right side and there are booths and wooden tables on the left side. There is a lower level as well. The most outstanding feature of the decor is the 2000+ bottle collection and the amazing number of tap handles mounted on the walls. Definitely one of the most impressive collections I have seen.
As for the beers you can actually drink, it is just as impressive. The draught beers feature Russian River, Elysian, Deschutes, New Belgium, Port Brewing, Oskar Blues and a myriad of others. The bottle list is impressive as well, offering a host of regional and worldwide microbrews.
My score for Service will be aggregated over my 2 visits. During Pumpkin Fest they had exactly one server covering the entire pub save for the bar itself. Considering this was an "event" night and the place was packed, he was understandably having trouble keeping up. As a result we waited a very long time for food and drinks. I put this squarely on the Mgt. The next evening I sat at the bar and the bartender was very beer savvy and efficient.
Our group had appetizers during the Elysian event and they were all good.
Overall this is hands down the best bar we visited on our trip and I would make a bee line for it first on any future visits.

This place is beer geek nirvana. The folks who run are on the curmedgeonly side. All the prices end in weird numbers so the totals come out in variables of .25 since they donít carry nickles, dimes, or pennies in their drawers. They donít split checks. They charge a dollar when people ask stupid questions. (all of this is explained on the menu by the way.) The place is very dark except that the walls are lined with hundreds of different empty beer bottles that are little from below rendering them almost gothic in their bearing. They have over 50 taps and over 100 bottles. All the stuff on draft is craft. They had a bunch of wet hop stuff still left over from GABF but they tend to theme their taps. It was an interesting experience and one that I hope I get to repeat some day.

From the moment I walked in with JMBH, I felt I was in one of the best places one can have a beer. By far, the best in Denver/Boulder. I think seventy taps two casks on mid-week, a strange and wonderful bottle selection. Very large bar to sit at, with many tables, and downstairs so good capacity. The bartenders have a lot of room to work, and knew their stuff. Tremendous selection, tonight at least seven barleywines were on as a feature. Lots of samples as not crowded on a frigid night. Right downtown. Beers served appropriate conditions. I really liked the old tap handles and several hundred bottles, all arranged artistically. Bull & Bush root beer brewed for them on tap, and it was a nice switch t have this instead of water between half pints.

Great place to sit on the patio and enjoy some world class brews. Very near the stadiuim and in the middle of a nice walking district. Many great beers on tap, with some very good bottles as well.

Falling Rock Tap House sports a staggering amount of high quality taps. I didnít know what to settle on. The ambiance is pretty straight up pub, fun and lively. I had a reuben on marble rye with spicy fries. It was simple and greasy, but man, it was tasty. Seriously, this is a very good selection of taps.
