Visited several times during Rockies games. Prices are relatively high for a microbrewery in general, but youíre in a stadium, so normal prices for a micro at a ball game. When Iíve went theyíve had probably 3 beers available on average. I havenít tried anything too impressive at the stadium, but I have gotten a couple good beers by them at GABF in the past. Worth a quick stop if youíre already going to a Rockies game. Donít bother otherwise.
Iím not a big fan of Blue Moons beers but at least thereís a decent selection here and a few you wonít find elsewhere. A unique location inside the ballpark so check opening if not a game day.

Visited for a Thursday day game against the Cubs. There was a 45 minute rain delay at the start, and I happily spent that time at Sandlot. It was crowded, though the bartenders were engaging and knowledgeable about the 6 beers they had on that day. The Llano Lager I had was excellent. The layout is built to handle crowds, with a long bar with standing room behind, and a few tables tucked in on the street side. There is also a large patio area between the brewpub in the field itself. Cool concept, well executed. Check the website for hours and information - it is now open on non game days, though hours are limited.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
I am a huge fan of Colorado, Denver, The Denver Broncos and not least the Colorado Rockies. Now, truth be told, I was here quite a while ago last, but I love it. I mean, it is a brewpub inside a ballpark. Also, Coors Field is the best ballpark in the World! (Yes, Iím a Norwegian who loves baseball). The beers, as I remember them, were relatively middle of the road, not too amazing, but they work, and you drink them looking out on the amazing ballpark, and the Rocky Mountains in the background.
Asking for much more would be almost vulgar.
This is a decent brewery attached to the ballpark. Thereís a bunch of seating, a patio and TVís. The decor is polished wood. Itís kind of neat to have a brewery at a major sporting venue. But not necessarily a beer geek destination as the beer is not particularly impressive, except for the second hand smoke which is delicious.
Bonus points for having this place in a ballpark. But it wasnt terribly enjoyable experience. Felt very rushed to order, with so many people around. This place gets really crouded. I would not recommend buying a ball ticket just to go in here. But if your at the game and want some ícraftí beer then this is a decent option. Sure its a coors owned operation. But they made decent beer. I had a couple of sandlot beers. Nothing was too amazing but it was better then just your regular coors offering. Just a note for anyone looking for this place, the outside has the name as íBlue Moon Brewing at the Sandlotí . I assume theres another sign that has just sandlot brewery on it. But the Blue moon sign is what you see on the inside of the stadium
Tough to rate this place objectively as there are not many other places like this - it is a bar in a ballpark that just happens to serve beers that you canít typically find anywhere else - not much to compare it to - large interior space with a standing only bar - surprisingly slow considering the buzz of the ballpark at gametime - staff was curt but attentive, but that is expected from folks accustomed to dealing with baseball game attendees - only three sandlot beers on tap when I was there, but the exclusivity makes even that kind of exciting - standard ballpark beer prices - again, it is tough to judge, because it is really great to have something like this in the stadium, but if it were an "ordinary" brewpub, I probably wouldnít like it so much - in short, if you happen to be at a game, you will be thankful that this place is here.
Chavez ravine please take note and bring a brewery to Dodger stadium. In the heart of Denver, a few blocks from Falling Rock. If you donít want to drive or walk all over town this area should do you right.
