This is a cool place. Great outdoor atmosphere. Beer loving clientel for the most part. Good service. A great beer selection including some more rare selections such as fantome. Disappointed by the draft list only because many that i wanted had run out. Had they not, would have been one of the best selection Iíve seen in a while. If I lived in denver I would be here frequently.
Accomodating, friendly but overwhelmed staff made for a sub-par visit. Rarities from New Belgium were a plus. Location was very easy to find. Helped me get a cab, even hailed it from the street, I sure couldnít have done it after five hours there. Selection was very dissapointing to me, however I would imagine to a newfound lover of beer it would be amazing. Good variety. Bathrooms were disgusting, come on, make the new guy clean it up.
Great location, right near Coors field. Good beer menu, excellent bar food, especially the hell wings and burgers. Very knowledgeable staff but on the beer-snobby side since a few of my friends only drink light beer, so the waiter acted like he had little time for them. Pool tables downstairs and outdoor patio make this a must.
Great place in LoDo near Coors Field. Excellent draught selection. Places like this make me wish I had an extra liver. Only had time for 2 beers (New Belgium La Folie and Ericís Sour Peach). I visited on a Friday night, but it wasnít overly crowded, so service was decent. Didnít eat here.
Huge draft lineup with some very interesting stuff on tap like Manhattan Project, maui Coconut Porter and others. Of course the lineup is swelled from GABF, but this is a well stocked beer bar regardless with tons of taps and plenty of interesting things, but suprisingly nothing on tap that was really amazing. The food was above average pub grub and the decor is on the shabby side, but it gives it a Key West casual feel. You definitely need to visit if in the area.
Went here just about every day we were in Denver for GABF. Got several rare beers here. Loved the ambiance of the place and how busy it was. The food was typical "pub grub" but was pretty good. Lots of good beers here especially on draft and even moreso during this particular week. We had some pretty good service while we here and the waiters we had were extremely friendly. I was expecting them to be a bit frustrated due to the sheer volume of customers but they were pros. Only thing Iíd improve is the bathroom but this is typical for most bars in that it was filthy. Other than that, itís an easy HIGH recommendation!

One of the better beer bars in the world. Incredible selection on tap. Huge Belgian selection. Huge micro selection. Pleasant atmosphere, now that CO is smoke free. Food decent, I recommend the blackened burger. Service is generally a bit slow and rude.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Oh WOW this is Mecca. I wish I could have walked around the place 7 times it was awesome. Loved all they had on tap. I wish I had more time. They had such awesome brews on Tap and then to offer special GABF brews that even the GABF did not have was awesome also. The beer selection was above almost all. The Food was not bad and the service on such a busy day was great. A must stop for any beer fan.
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.
