Long room, small tables and booths all kept in brown. Long bar with bar stools. Nice receipt at the entrance. Water served before I ordered anything. Quite noisy at the beginning. Very friendly servant. Italian food. Fair prices. 27 beers on tap. Quick service. Outdoor seets.
There arenít a lot of places on 16th Street Mall that I would frequent. I suppose this has to make that list now. The bartender was really kind and knowledgeable. Beer list is more than competent and prices are fair, especially considering the street Lucky Pie is on. The ambiance is welcoming, but has a stock restaurant type of feel. Again, given the street itís not bad. I was thoroughly impressed with the food. I didnít have pizza, but theyíve got some nice foodie fare like lamb meatballs and fried brussel sprouts.
Stopped by here during GABF week with t0rin0 and brokensail. They had a really cool Green Flash night when we visited, so the Cali guys got some ticks that they hadnít even found at home. I didnít try the pizza but it did look very tasty. I hope to be back here soon.
sort of an upscale pizza place with a pretty good tap list. service was very friendly and quick. food looked great but didnít eat here. tap list on our visit was a bit dominated by southern california beers, but also a good amount of oskar blues and other colorado stuff. prices are kind of on the high side with your basic pale ale running $6/glass and just about everything else being in the $7-9 range.
I wasnít expecting much and the rest of the group had a different itinerary so it was only by my own stubbornness that we even looked at the tap list. Glad we did since they had several good beers flowing. Green Flash barrel aged barleywine, Lagunitas Day Time IPA, and a few others, in addition to some new beers that we hadnít tried. We sat at the bar tables, all self-seating. The server was pleasant but took a while to get to us the first time. After that she came back often enough.
I stopped back in a couple days later with Anders37 and sat at the bar when it was quieter. They had rotated some of the taps and the bartender was helpful and provided a lot of information about the beers. We each had a pint and tried a few things in addition for free. Nice place, would stop back in, but admittedly I have no idea how the food is. That said, thereís a Mexican restaurant next door that was alright, so if you just want a beer you can eat some Chipotle-style crap (slightly better but not amazing by any means) before getting beer.
a block down from market street station on 16th, itís a large modern interior with a side bar containing about 20 taps, about 1/3 Colorado, 1/3 US and 1/3 imported. 3-4 newish or interesting taps that arent that common around here. high prices for the downtown 16th street mall crowd so be warned.
New place on the edge of the 16th street mall, about one block from the Tattered Cover bookstore - lounge-ish feel inside - decent tap list, with about 1/3 CO brews - despite a few more unique offerings, the tap list seems to focus on the bigger names in craft beer, with nothing available from any of the numerous smaller breweries in CO, so, that needs some work - prices on the beers are all over the map (4 bucks for Avery IPA, 8 bucks for Tank 7), but most settle on the pricier end of the spectrum - service was decent, if not entirely informed about the beer - I am ambivalent about the food - we had some house-cured fried olives, which were pretty damn addictive - they specialize in that new american brick oven pizza, which is not necessarily bad - the individual ingredients on the pizza (house-made smoked mozzarella, spicy salami, etc) were all tasty, but did not come together well - the pizza was soggy with oil and the bottom of the crust tasted charred - overall, an okay spot, but there are better places to get dinner and beer downtown (Euclid Hall, Freshcraft) - if you are doing a downtown brewery and pub crawl, it is worth popping your head in here to see if anything decent is on tap - get some fried olives to snack on if you stay for a beer.
