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, "Itís too busy for me to go downstairs and get that, youíll have to choose something else." Definitely a decent place to go for some great beers. Itís too bad places like this still maintain a "tough" kind of vibe, like every customer they deal with is an obnoxious drunken fratboy. Iíd 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. Didnít 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. Didnít 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 Ė but they were out. Had Great Divide Hercules Ė but they were out. Come on, itís Denver and youíre 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 Ė 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 Iíve 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 couldnít 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.
Great place in LoDo near Coors Field. Excellent draught selection. Places like this make me wish I had an extra liver. Only had time for 2 beers (New Belgium La Folie and Ericís Sour Peach). I visited on a Friday night, but it wasnít overly crowded, so service was decent. Didnít eat here.
Huge draft lineup with some very interesting stuff on tap like Manhattan Project, maui Coconut Porter and others. Of course the lineup is swelled from GABF, but this is a well stocked beer bar regardless with tons of taps and plenty of interesting things, but suprisingly nothing on tap that was really amazing. The food was above average pub grub and the decor is on the shabby side, but it gives it a Key West casual feel. You definitely need to visit if in the area.
Went here just about every day we were in Denver for GABF. Got several rare beers here. Loved the ambiance of the place and how busy it was. The food was typical "pub grub" but was pretty good. Lots of good beers here especially on draft and even moreso during this particular week. We had some pretty good service while we here and the waiters we had were extremely friendly. I was expecting them to be a bit frustrated due to the sheer volume of customers but they were pros. Only thing Iíd improve is the bathroom but this is typical for most bars in that it was filthy. Other than that, itís an easy HIGH recommendation!

One of the better beer bars in the world. Incredible selection on tap. Huge Belgian selection. Huge micro selection. Pleasant atmosphere, now that CO is smoke free. Food decent, I recommend the blackened burger. Service is generally a bit slow and rude.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
