This place rocks! Not even taking into consideration that I visited the place during the GABF í06 and the fact that they might not tap all the wonderful beers they did on a regular basis... the selection was phenomenal. The food is terrific bar food... no microwaves. Great buffalo burgers, fries and fried mushrooms. Lousy, rude staff... fairly knowledgeable, but they wonít win any beer judge awards. The place is dank, damp with a sticky floor... as any good tap house should be. Terrific selection on tap and in bottles! Spendy, but worth it!

Great selection on tap and in bottle, no doubt. Went twice during the GABF, once on Thursday night after the festival, the second time being Saturday late afternoon evening. Both times it was completely packed. I agree that it was pretty dirty, and the bartenders and service was far from friendly. Itís too bad I couldnít go to this place when it is a bit more slow.

I stopped in the thurs of GABF, got their early to avoid the crowd. Some of the beers where a bit to sour, this seems to be a problem with some bars that have a big selection(lines not cleaned). Was not busy at the time and the bartender didnt acknowledge the majority of the customers i even saw him yell at a patron because he made a joke, which almost got him kicked out due to this bartenders own rules. Great selection of beers if maintained properly, great food, service could be better. I reccomend this place to anyone, but if you run into a problem at the bar dont hesitate to leave there are so many other places to check out in Denver.

Stopped in, had a 3 fonteinen gold labeled geueze. Interesting place. The alpha king contest was going on downstairs. Didnít seem to have anything else I wanted to drink. Decent service. Way overrated. No place to sit. Cleanliness of bathrooms was very lacking. Nothing really that rare available.

Place is tucked back off the road. Small patio that fills up on game days. Located minutes from Coors Field and Pepsi Center. They have the best selection in town. The beer menu is often out of date. Place is not that clean and is very dark. The crowd is usually pretty cool. This is where to go if your looking to drink good beer. In need of some upgrades but a must hit while in Denver for sure.

This was top of my list of things to do while at a conference in Denver. Was I disappointed? Hardly. I donít know what I enjoyed more: the beer or the staff. Seventy some on draught and I donít even know what bottles they had (I did have a conference to attend, after all). The first night I ended up in a conversation with a gentleman at the end of the bar about whatís good and whatís bad. Turns out that the next time I pop in, heís working the bar. I break out my notebook and he busts my balls about being one of those "Ratebeer" guys. Good times ensued. One visit was the same night as a Rockies game. I know because I was at the game earlier. Never seemed to be overwhelmingly crowded. Pub grub is adequate and reportedly there are no microwaves. I recommend the chicken fingers.

I canít add much to what has already been said. We stopped in after a 12 1/2 car ride and were not disappointed. Iím sure the experience was made better by the fact there was no Rockies game that night so it was a fairly quiet Thursday evening. Friendly wait staff with some suggestions for us. Unfortunately they did not have any Colorado stouts or porters on tap, but it is the middle of June and was told they have more of the darker beers on tap in the colder months. Food was good pub grub with the four of us having club sandwiches, burger and my wife a great looking salad. The fries were not as bad as some others have mentioned, slightly greasy, but Iíve had far worse. A live band started playing in the adjoining room around 8 and while a bit on the loud side, they were quite good. This place has great character and charm, worth the stop!

This is Denverís premiere destination for beer - both regional and imported. Huge selection of tap handles, some of which change weekly. Printed menus help, and the chalkboard highlights new arrivals, but sometimes itís best just to scan the handles and peer into the coolers to locate something that catches your eye. From New Belgium rarities (Terroir, Ericís Ale) to unique Belgians (Fantome Bris Bon Bon, draft Maredsous, etc), thereís always something great. Eat first before you go and expect waits when the place is hopping.

Strolled in a few hours before a Rockies game on a Saturday and had no trouble getting a table. They had over 60 taps and at least that many bottles. Lots of CO beers featured. Hundreds of empty beer bottles line the walls giving the place a really great ambiance. Unfortunately no cask beers were on when we visited, but I was able to sample some Chimay Cinq Cents, New Belgium Ericís Ale, Great Divide Hercules, Celebrator and Stone RIS 2006 (which is also just mediocre on tap BTW). The BLT with garlic and herb mayo is the perfect pair with a Stone IPA. A definite stop in downtown Denver.

Went here during GABF weekend 05. Wasnt too impressed overall. Hardly any lambic to be had (no gueuze???), and what they did have was only some fruit lambic. Payed a small fortune for a bottle of Cantillon Kriek. Umm, there really werent any beers that I got excited about trying. They were advertising the Fullers London Porter (low carbed keg) as a cask. Granted it was very crowded, as expected, but I didnt think the staff was terribly exerting themselves to help. Nice enough old Western feel inside, rugged and with a well done wood decor. Outside patio seating was pleasant as well. Probably would come again if in Denver for GABF, but doubt Iíd go here if it wasnt GABF weekend.
