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.

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.

Um, dope. Benefits by being the best beer bar in the city that hosts the GABF: it has a cult-type following, and Iím part of the cult. I must tell a story: I was in here one night writing on my laptop, and a good-natured, beer loving group of Denverites surrounded me and helped generate ideas for my "screenplay." Such a friendly, knowledgeable place. Exactly what an American beer bar should be.

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.
