Visited on GABF Sunday 2005. The intention was to go steady and wind it down after a most enjoyable 3 days at the festival but this didnít really happen due to this place having a great selection of beers, good company and friendly service. The barstaff were great, giving us free tshirts and beer memorabilia, even letting us behind the bar to photograph the place and itís amazing display of tap heads on the wall. Met some great people here too, fellow drinkers from the festival from all over America. Also tried the food, spicy hot chicken washed down with some of Americaís finest pale ales - pure bliss!

the best beer selection in the denver area, a good fun spot to hang out, many quality taps and regionals. right next to the ball park. the night we partook was so smokey i could barely see across the bar. nasty habit.

Loved it! Canít wait to go back. I love real beer (not a beer expert) and this place has loads of it. A person like me doesnít have to be worried about making a bad choice, because there really isnít one. No one will say ďlook at the girl, she ordered a Blue MoonĒ. Iím learning and learning fast! I thought the food was great! It is bar food after all. I like my burgers in a basket and the home made fries are excellent. Oh and the Schrooms are tasty, not greasy one bit. The service was OK, a little aloof perhaps but not inattentive. Iíll be back soon and encourage any beer lover who visits Colorado to visit this place.

The quintessential beer bar! Dimly lit, smoky (on the bar side), old wood tables and booths, beer bottles and tap handles on all the walls and of course the wall-of-beer. Iíve certainly seen larger draft selections but nothing that comes close in quality. When you see things like Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard on tap you know itís going to be a great place! They were kind of slow when I was there (Wednesday night). There were maybe 5 or 6 guys at the bar and a couple of the tables were occupied. I had the Philly Cheese Steak which was excellent. The fries sucked but I would order it again for the sandwich. It was a little smoky, which Iím not used to since the new smoking laws in GA but Iím not complaining. My motto has always been - "If you donít want to breath second-hand smoke while youíre eating, then donít eat in the bar." Service was good. The bartender gave me a generous sample of Double Bastard after I mentioned that I had never seen it on tap. A MUST when visiting Denver.

My ale mecca...all hail the Rock! Couldnít imagine travelling through Denver and not stopping in for a taste. Heck, I canít think of anything I dislike. Selection is wonderful, even more so during GABF week. Food is quite good, and the service has always been "at least" acceptable (during massive GABF crowds) and normally awesome. If you havenít been there then you need to go sometime.

Iím not sure I can add a whole lot to whatís been said, but Iíll just say that itís a blast to go to this place. Easy to walk to from the light rail, sometimes hard to get a good table on the busy days. Decent food, smart wait staff, and goodness, lots of yummy beers. Ambiance is ok -- Crap on the walls, lots of wood. And a GABF countdown clock, thatís fun. Falling rock has plenty of beers that you canít get anywhere else, aside from the breweries themselves. Lots of stuff on tap that you can only find in bottles. Brilliant place. But, Iíd like to see the design of the ambiance improved.

By the number of glowing reviews I think people get the idea. This is great. Chris Black knows beer and he knows how to run great bar. The Falling Rock is a beer Mecca during the GABF and serves as a great local pub the rest of the year. Yes it can get crowded and loud during the busy times. But the great beer selection and good food make up for it. The staff is knowledgeable friendly too . This is my home away from home when Iím in the Denver area.

This was the Mecca during 05 GABF! Man, I was there every night and Falling Rock always had something awesome on draft! I donít know what their draft section would look like if it were not GABF week but I bet it is still pretty damn amazing! This food was pretty good, not brewpub quality but exactly what ones stomach and sobriety calls for after 5 pints of imperial IPA. This is by far the best beer bar I have ever been toÖ. There were many memories to be had from this place; and many to be lost in my transition of my blood alcohol level.

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.
