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.

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.
