Pints pub is a standard English-styled brewpub. I do commend them for the ambiance. The old building has a lot of character and the decor is fascinating. The bar area is very small so we ended up at a small table. Our server was very nice and helpful. Iím not much for British or U.K. beer in general, but I commend Pints for at least having some real ales on and an old ale. These are more interesting to me than another bitter or brown. I had the old ale and stout, both of which were serviceable. I had lamb skewers for an appetizer and pork loin for an entree. Appetizers are half off during happy hour, which made me feel a little better about the overdone lamb skewers. The pork loin was sliced very thin and a little on the dry side. The salad was predominantly iceberg lettuce. The mashed potatoes were the best thing about the meal. There are countless superior venues for beer nearby. However, Pints may have the best whiskey selection in all of Colorado.

Brewpub near the convention center. They donít offer flights, which is my biggest complaint. Food was actually quite good. Value was decent enough. Beer was pretty substandard. I had to choke down a pint of something I really only wanted a few ounces of to try.
They do have an insane selection of whiskey. If thatís your thing then this is a must visit.

Visited November 2012.
I arrived just before closing which was a shame since they told me I could have one pint and nothing else. Given the quality of the beer it may not have been the worst thing that could have happened to me. As far as I could tell they donít actually offer flights, or at least the bartender didnít want to set me up with one. So I picked the ESB from their list of a dozen house beers and chatted with the bartender about all the whiskeys they have available. It was also too late to eat anything. Theyíve gone all out with the English pub dťcor and I spent a few minutes wandering the building (on my way to the bathroom) to look at all the pictures they have up on the walls. They also have an old phone booth outside that several patrons were taking pictures with. I sat at the bar downstairs but there is a restaurant upstairs as well. Over all a pretty neat place but aside from trying all the beers Iím not sure I want to spend a lot of time here, even if the food turns out to be good, since I can get good food and good beer at several other places around town. Iíll give them another try in October when Iím there for GABF.

Stop here as part of the Brews Cruise. Unique looking place with lots of wood and an English pub kind of feel. Brews definitely had the authentic flavors going on with some nice cask offerings. Even though I donít enjoy the true English-style beers that much, I was impressed. Service was average.

A truly awesome place. This English pub has a SIngle Malt issue and it is awesome. Great beers and the real English IPA drawn from the beer engine is truly a great beer. Stop here for a great time.

Visited with two friends on October 12, 2012. Had the stew for food, my mates had burgers, nice grub indeed. Classic English enterior. Good beers on tap. Service was OK, but not as good as Iíve come to expect in Denver on my trip. Iíd go back though, nice place for sure! They didnít serve samplers, but was able to buy beers at half pints at least.

As a rule I loathe recreations of Olde British Pubbes but I quite liked this one. Two genuine handpulled uncarbonated real ales, one pretty good, 300+ single malts and an imaginative selection of better world whiskies, a darts board and bar billiards table, various Celtic tunes as background, The Times and of course a red telephone kiosk. It could be a lot worse, especially in England.

I had horrible service here and the three beers were horrible. I asked an old guy working there if they had a beer sampler tray and he nastily said to me, "we figure that our customers are knowledgeable of beers to choose one off the menu." I nearly replied, "I know my f-in beers but I donít know if you can make them." Iíve heard this place has the most scotches of any bar outside of Scotland. I canít confirm this. By the way, the beers were expensive.

(Have stopped by a few more tomes over the years - beers are not very good and the casks often taste off and/or old - still a comfortable pub with an impressive scotch list, bu donít come for beer or food) Stopped in yesterday for a pint and a snack - nice location south of downtown, near the main branch of the library and the art museum - smallish, all-wood interior space makes for a very comfy british style pub - as has been noted, the vast array of scotch hanging from the ceiling is a sight to behold - about 10 beers available, two on cask, which is rare for this part of the country for some reason - all session ales of very styles, representing mostly british and german ones, though - the cask ale was nice, and fairly authentic - the bartender was friendly and knowledgeable - I wonít comment on the food, as I only had the chips - a decent place.

Sorry Scott, I forgot to rate your place when I got home!
One of the high points of me and my brothers trip to the GABF 2009 was the time we spent at Pints Pub. What a great owner and staff. I LOVED the cask ales and learned a hell of a lot about Single Malts. Thanks for the hospitality and canít wait to see you all again!
