In a new mall location not very far from the airport in the east. About 30 taps and all artw Colorado beers including things that are not common such as Crooked Stave. Service was friendly. No food but you can bring your own. Reasonable priced and tasting size offered on all pours.

Location makes no sense but not arguing. Better than driving to Downtown Denver for a much bigger cost and lower return.
One big plus is the access to a lot of restaurants in the area. Ordered BBQ the night I was there. Nothing wrong with that one bit. No food but welcome to bring other restaurants stuff.
Mind boggling selection. 30 taps?? All small CO breweries?? Help. Really nice to see such a deep and diverse selection. Had stuff from FT Collins Brewery, Lone Tree brewing, Telluride, and Caution Brewing.
Prices were really good for high ABV beers, so, so for the lower range stuff. Not sure on the family aspect of it but the feel was good. Obviously well connected in the CO beer scene and know their stuff.

Apparently this place has only been open for three weeks now and it is looking good so far. Stapleton Tap Houseís mission is to showcase smaller Colorado breweries. Nearly the entire tap list are things that one would be hard pressed to find anywhere other than at the breweries themselves. The ambiance is very modern, stark and clean. There was one TV showing a baseball game. The owner was very knowledgeable and friendly. He also made it clear he was commited to keeping his lines clean. This is a fantastic stop for a beer enthusiast who wants a selection of hard to get and quality stuff. The weirdest thing about this place is its location in a giant, very commercialized shopping center. It made it a pain for me to find on my visit. As grating as the atmosphere is outside, this is a superb oasis.

(Update 2 - they have changed their pricing scheme for the better - the tasters are still a little small for the price, though - selection continues to be awesome - they really go out of their way to bring in a diverse selection) (Update - open one month and have already raised prices - beers are six bucks across the board, which means youíre getting kind of a deal if youíre getting a barrel-aged quad or something, but getting ripped off if all you want is a session lager - this pricing scheme needs to change, as the only reason it makes sense is to make life easier for the bartender when calculating tabs - 6 bucks for three three ounce tasters is also a huge ripoff) This place immediately gets one point off for ambiance given its location in Northfield, which is a huge outdoor shopping mall just north of I-70 - however, I can see the logic in putting it here - there are a lot of restaurants around, it is a few hundred feet from one of the largest movie theaters in Denver, there are a lot of industrial parks nearby (so good for the happy hour crowd), and they are currently building a bunch of homes and hotels nearby - so, I get the logic...I still donít like the area - small space - minimalist, modern decor, with a few flat screens behind the bar displaying the beer list - one TV with the sound off - music played at a moderate volume - lots of board games and seemingly family friendly, despite the sparse, modern feel - the focus is on all Colorado beer and their stated goal is to showcase as much of the smaller CO breweries as possible - they intentionally keep no more than one beer from a particular brewer on at a time, so their 30 taps guarantees you a selection of 30 breweries to sample from - they also intend to avoid repeating the same kegs over and over again - in short, their goal is new breweries, new beer, all the time - pretty sweet if you ask me - seems like what Amatoís promised it would be and never became - they offer flights to encourage sampling as much as you can - they do have some of the more common breweries (Upslope, Fort Collins, Wynkoop), but just as many new, tiny CO breweries (Odyssey, Bootstrap, Echo, Beer by Design, Gravity, Black Bottle) - Funkwerks and Crooked Stave are also represented - it does offer a nice opportunity to sample a lot of Colorado beer - staff/ownership is friendly, well-connected in the Denver beer community, and very knowledgeable about what they serve.
