This might be fine as a (non beer-)bar or as a hotel bar, because that’s what it is, but I feel bad for anyone that traveled cross country to drink good beer and ends up here. Actually, I don’t feel bad. Read the rating on it first, or better yet, when you get to the front door take a look at the tap list which is posted right next to the menu. The first time I was in Denver I walked up, saw the menu, and jumped in a cab that was parked there. This time I went inside. You have to go into the hotel to get there. Dark interior, high wooden booths, and a large bar. Not sure what was going on but some customer was upset about something because the server refused something and he demanded the check. Maybe he was trying to charge a drink to his room, I don’t know. In any case, they have Coors and PBR and a couple of other macros. Really not sure why this was added at all. Maybe that have some cool bottles somewhere? I didn’t look at the food menu. Scroll past.

This place is attached to the Brown Palace Hotel and has a pretty cool atmosphere. The food menu looked good, yet expensive. They had a beer made by Great Divide at one point called Ship Tavern Ale. Pretty cool place to stop into.

Holy smokes expensive, came close to needing to work a shift in their kitchen after i got the bill. In the Brown palace, but it doesn’t have the luxury (like the hotel) to command the price.

Part of the Brown Palace Hotel but accessible direct from the street. The ground floor of a flatiron building that is actually the corner of Tremont and 18th Street. Trappist beers at a price and maybe a dozen commoner Colorado beers, not the greatest selection in town but good for a classy old-style hotel, now commissioning its own honey saison from Wynkoop. Good atmospheric dark wood bar in an original design independently owned 1892 grand hotel.
