The Yak and Yeti is an excellent destination for a good beer, outstanding food and warm ambiance. Itís in the oldest building in Arvada and has a comfortable, storied ambiance. We sat at the bar and received friendly, personable and knowledgeable service. The food is the centerpiece of this restaurant. It spans accessible to hardline Tibetan food, but is full of flavor. Three beers, two entrees and an appetizer totaled $51. Definitely reasonable for the portion and quality. The beers had some highlights and some lowlights, but nothing really wowed me. There are a few good options for fresh beer to pair with the cuisine, but I feel the food is on another level here.

Awesome Indian/Tibetan/Nepalese brewpub just outside of Denver. Day time buffet was excellent. Great food and service. Ten of their own beers on tap. A couple of interesting beers and your brewpub staples. Beers ranged from excellent to just okay. Prices were low. Three pints, a sampler of ten beers and three buffets for less than $45. Overall, a unique place and well worth a visit.

Went with RSRIZZO and another friend and enjoyed some of their beers and the gentleman behind the bar was super nice and sat and talked to us for a while Some beers were awesome and then some were pretty bad. A different kind of brewpub. Food was darn tasty.

I like the idea of an Indian/Nepalese restaurant in Colorado brewing their own beer. Having said that, the food is much better than the beer, though that is not to slight all their beers. Some were pretty good; others were not, such as the Gluten Free Apple. However, if I were on a gluten free diet, I would appreciate their offering more. We sat at the bar, and our waitress/bartender seemed much too occupied in being pissy than serving customers. The constant eye rolling and "Iím too busy even though the place is not busy" got old real quick.

Went there for their lunch buffet. Excellent food! Had their Himalayan IPA, very tasty, but didnít taste the same when I had it at GABF. Will go back when I am in the area.

Quaint victorian house thats now a decorative Indian restaurant. Went for the lunch buffet and was really impressed with the quality and selection. $10 lunch buffet was a little steep, but worth it for how full I got. The beers are ok. Nothing bad, but nothing mind-blowing. Though I do give them props for having a wide range of well made styles, and at only $4 a pint its really not bad. Get the pilsner.

Their himilayan IPA is one of my favorites. It is a real unique/ neighborhood joint. Go in the afternoon for cheap pints for happy hour.

I finally made it up to this place this weekend to check out their food and the chai stout. It lived up to expectations. The building is super cool, and makes the dining experience worth it in and of itself. The food was decent. My wife and I had Indian food, and there are certainly better Indian places around, but they had a pretty good selection of foods from the subcontinent, and what we had was tasty. The beer was so-so. I love that they are doing some small batch stuff and experimenting. My wife had the IPA and it was delightful. I had the chai stout and it was served totally flat, but despite that still tasted pretty good.

Cool old two story yellow mansion with a nice bar right inside the door. The new brewer is doing a lot of interesting small batch beers. I hear the food is good but I haveít tried it yet. The service is quick and friendly. Oe of the overlooked places in the Denver Metro area.

Charming and cozy. Definitely a restaurant with a few brews, not a brewery with food. Servers were quick and attentive. We started with a sampler of the entire lineup... three ounces each of hefe, ESB, IPA, and Chai milk stout ran $8, while a full point costs only $4. WTH? All the beers tasted of cloves, My pint of IPA was pretty good except for that one big flaw. The ESB was godawful putrid disgusting. The overpriced dinner buffet was meager as far as choices, but tasty and filling. However, although SWMBO and I are no strangers to Indian cooking, but we were both sick the next day. So my advice is order from the menu and skip the beer.
