Visited during GABF, thursday night we walked up and there was a line around the block, so we came back early Saturday and there wasn’t too many people there. Great selection of micros and belgians. There were 4 beer engines although they didn’t have any beer on them while we were there. Everyone seemed very friendly.

In town for the GABF and made a point of stopping by Falling Rock on Thursday before things got crazy. There were only about 20 people in the entire place. We were among the 10 sitting outside. Sat down at a table and ordered 3 good local CO brews before ordering food. The waiter made a point of saying what a great day it was to sit outside and have a beer... and then ignored us for the next 40 minutes. Three guys sat down at the table next to us that clearly knew the waiter - they got their beers 5 minutes later and food 10 minutes after that. Our beers never showed up. When we finally got the waiter’s attention (as he stood and chatted up his buddies), we told him that we were going to move our seats inside, he responded (and I quote) - I’m f*cking busy, buddy! Go find another waiter. We left. I hope that the owner of the FRTH reads this and fires this arrogant, wanna be surfer dude that was covering the outdoor area on 10/11/07 between 2pm and 3pm. The guy is a disgrace. We went across the street and had good beers and food and ran into a couple that had the same experience with the same guy. I will never return, based on the abysmal level of service. You get more friendly service at McSorley’s on a Friday night.
The service was attentive when I went here with a buddy recently. The selection was amazing, and the barman poured me tasters of a few Flanders Red sours after we got to talking about the style. They had some good local cask ales. Didn’t try the food. The atmosphere was fine. Definitely will stop in again next time in Denver.
The beer is good and the when they aren’t rude, the servers do have great knowledge about the beer they sell.
Overall I want to like this place, but the servers are rude and condescending. The last time I ate there a roach crawled across our food. If you like beer, Denver has plenty of good local brews available at most of the downtown bars.
Skip the bugs and attitude, skip the Falling Roach.
I just stumbled upon this place while passing through Colorado. Pretty good selection of bottles, and a huge list of taps. The bartender was pretty intense... not really the most friendly service. Someone asked for a bottle from the list (a $38 Gouden Carolus Grand Cru) and he said, "It’s too busy for me to go downstairs and get that, you’ll have to choose something else." Definitely a decent place to go for some great beers. It’s too bad places like this still maintain a "tough" kind of vibe, like every customer they deal with is an obnoxious drunken fratboy. I’d still go back for the beers though, if I were in the area again.
Tons of taps, with a nice bottle selection. Lots of vintage Avery beers. Staff was incredibly friendly, and even gave suggestions on restaurants in the area. Didn’t eat here though. Love the Falling Rock on a Sunday afternoon.
Glad I looked up ths jewel of a tap room in Denver. Lots of taps and plenty of beer credentials hanging from the walls. Odd, unusual and local offerings. Also plenty of internationals on hand. Didn’t try the food. Service was a little difficult, but well worth the effort to get these folks to take your money.
Pretty good tap list, but a few disappointments. Had Rogue 10,000 on the list – but they were out. Had Great Divide Hercules – but they were out. Come on, it’s Denver and you’re out of Hercules? Waitress was initially a little stand-offish, but she eventually warm to us. Bartender completely ignored us when we tried to get a beer at the bar – it was about 5:00 PM on a Thursday, not very busy. Only food we had was some onion rings and they were great.
This is a cool place. Great outdoor atmosphere. Beer loving clientel for the most part. Good service. A great beer selection including some more rare selections such as fantome. Disappointed by the draft list only because many that i wanted had run out. Had they not, would have been one of the best selection I’ve seen in a while. If I lived in denver I would be here frequently.
Accomodating, friendly but overwhelmed staff made for a sub-par visit. Rarities from New Belgium were a plus. Location was very easy to find. Helped me get a cab, even hailed it from the street, I sure couldn’t have done it after five hours there. Selection was very dissapointing to me, however I would imagine to a newfound lover of beer it would be amazing. Good variety. Bathrooms were disgusting, come on, make the new guy clean it up.
Great location, right near Coors field. Good beer menu, excellent bar food, especially the hell wings and burgers. Very knowledgeable staff but on the beer-snobby side since a few of my friends only drink light beer, so the waiter acted like he had little time for them. Pool tables downstairs and outdoor patio make this a must.
