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.
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 Eric’s Sour Peach). I visited on a Friday night, but it wasn’t overly crowded, so service was decent. Didn’t 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 I’d improve is the bathroom but this is typical for most bars in that it was filthy. Other than that, it’s an easy HIGH recommendation!
