Visited October 12, 2013.
I had heard good things about this place (mostly from BroDNeilsen) so I figured it was worth a shot. Apparently heís been telling everyone else about it too since the place was packed when I got there. I stopped in after the Saturday members-only session of GABF so that may have been part of it but who knows. What I do know is that I forgot my jacket at home before leaving sunny southern California and was on foot here, which was not ideal in mid October up in the mountains, especially as the sun was setting when I arrived.
Inside there is a long bar that makes a U shape and some tables scattered around it along the wall. The beer list wasnít bad admittedly though I didnít see a lot that I hadnít had before. Part of that may be due to the fact that this was my eighth consecutive day bar/brewery hopping in Colorado but another part of that was most assuredly due to the fact that there were some California taps. The food looked good but I didnít eat. The prices were a bit high, service was decent, and over all Iíd consider stopping in again if it was during off-peak hours. Until such a time that I can visit and not have to climb over the people at the bar to even look at a menu I wonít be returning.

nice to see the varied tap selection, and nice to see them serving the new Prost Weissbier, but here I have to complain about their one hand pump (Dry Dock Milk Stout) being nearly flat and lacking any character, as if it were put on weeks ago. pizza was below average for Colorado eateries, as the crust was a little too thick and spongy and the toppings seemed to all blend together or lose their flavor during the baking. they do some occasional tasting events with small Colorado breweries, which is nice to see. probably a good spot for the Denver beer visitor, but I have to say I do not consider them to be one of the best destination in town, rather theyíre more of the same, though that ainít all that bad. itís decent enough, but itís no Pizza Paradiso.

quite crowded as it was gabf week and they had a special event going on. not a huge place anyway. pretty solid tap list. lots of cigar city beers and a couple offerings from jackie oís during our visit. they sell taster pours, which is quite nice. good and friendly service. looked like they had some good pizza, but we didnít eat anything.

Hops & Pie is located on the northwest side of downtown Denver on Tennyson Street. There is a small parking lot next to the building.
The interior of the brightly painted red brick building is cozy, with booth and table seating on the right and the bar on the left. White walls with more red to accent. Behind the bar is a board listing the beers on tap.
Hops & Pie has 20 beers on tap including a house brand called Hops And Pie PA brewed by Strange Brewing. Other breweries on draught during my visit included Prairie Artisan Ales, Russian River, Funkwerks and Epic. Many bottles as well including a Reserve List with breweries like Boulevard, Trinity and Lost Abbey.
Service on a busy weekday evening at the bar was good. I didnít have to wait too long to snag a seat, and the bartender was friendly and knowledgeable.
As for the "Pie" part, my pizza was amazing to the point that I ate the entire small and made myself ill.
Overall this is a great spot in Denver for both a great meal and solid beer list.

Located on Tennyson street which seems like one of the coolest blocks in Denver, Hops and pie has a real neighborhood feel and unlike many of the places on this street they have their own parking lot. They had 20 taps of mostly local stuff mainly from the smaller breweries. Stuff that isnít available everywhere. They also do a pretty solid pizza as well. Prices are typical for a big city. But again thereís as much fun to be had people watching as drinking good beer.

A nice, cramped place in the middle of Denver suberbia. The beers were varied and thoughtful, though a bit high-priced, more so so than Chrisí groupie prices at Falling Rock. The food was really good and priced more reasonably. Good service, especially if you are there with a familiar.

A location separated as bar and restaraunt in a quaint part of town. Service was great and beer selection big, with some rare beers. Small pours and samples as well as growlers available. Food was great but a bit pricey. Overall a great place.

Visited for a late dinner on a Wednesday. Two separate rooms, one a dining room, the other a large bar with a handful of bar tables. Draft list was really solid, many options to choose from with selections from Prairie, Port, etc. The pizza I had was tasty, service was attentive and friendly. Good spot to hit if you are on that side of town.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Finally got to try out this place after hearing some rave reviews. The pizza wasnít bad, though I can kind of see the criticism. Definitely not bad by any means, but the crust is kind of unique. The Mac and Cheese is supposedly out of this world, so I will be trying that next time. The atmosphere is very nice and the staff is present and helpful. As for the beer selection, they really do a good job bringing in unique brews and rotating them often. The pints were a bit high priced, but itís hard to argue when you wouldnít have been able to otherwise try some of the beers on tap in Colorado. Recommended.

Stopped in on the recommendation of Steve_0 - thanks! Pretty nice place with a bar and a decent number of tables. Pizza is pretty good, taplist was fantastic, but it was souped up for GABF I am sure. Service was pretty darn good, I think I had like four different folks waiting on me at some point. Definitely deserving of its rating. 3 oz tasters were $2, and prices in general seemed very reasonable.
