Interesting combination of Indian-style food and house beers. The brewery part of this place is now known as Spice Trade Brewing instead of Yak & Yeti Brewpub. (The name of the restaurant remains the same.) Nice ambiance and good service. 11 beers on tap, with a variety of interesting styles (many have spices/adjuncts added), including a guest cider. Kind of a cool place for an occasional visit.
The Yak and Yeti is an excellent destination for a good beer, outstanding food and warm ambiance. It’s in the oldest building in Arvada and has a comfortable, storied ambiance. We sat at the bar and received friendly, personable and knowledgeable service. The food is the centerpiece of this restaurant. It spans accessible to hardline Tibetan food, but is full of flavor. Three beers, two entrees and an appetizer totaled $51. Definitely reasonable for the portion and quality. The beers had some highlights and some lowlights, but nothing really wowed me. There are a few good options for fresh beer to pair with the cuisine, but I feel the food is on another level here.
Awesome Indian/Tibetan/Nepalese brewpub just outside of Denver. Day time buffet was excellent. Great food and service. Ten of their own beers on tap. A couple of interesting beers and your brewpub staples. Beers ranged from excellent to just okay. Prices were low. Three pints, a sampler of ten beers and three buffets for less than $45. Overall, a unique place and well worth a visit.
Went with RSRIZZO and another friend and enjoyed some of their beers and the gentleman behind the bar was super nice and sat and talked to us for a while Some beers were awesome and then some were pretty bad. A different kind of brewpub. Food was darn tasty.
I like the idea of an Indian/Nepalese restaurant in Colorado brewing their own beer. Having said that, the food is much better than the beer, though that is not to slight all their beers. Some were pretty good; others were not, such as the Gluten Free Apple. However, if I were on a gluten free diet, I would appreciate their offering more. We sat at the bar, and our waitress/bartender seemed much too occupied in being pissy than serving customers. The constant eye rolling and "I’m too busy even though the place is not busy" got old real quick.
Quaint victorian house thats now a decorative Indian restaurant. Went for the lunch buffet and was really impressed with the quality and selection. $10 lunch buffet was a little steep, but worth it for how full I got. The beers are ok. Nothing bad, but nothing mind-blowing. Though I do give them props for having a wide range of well made styles, and at only $4 a pint its really not bad. Get the pilsner.
I finally made it up to this place this weekend to check out their food and the chai stout. It lived up to expectations. The building is super cool, and makes the dining experience worth it in and of itself. The food was decent. My wife and I had Indian food, and there are certainly better Indian places around, but they had a pretty good selection of foods from the subcontinent, and what we had was tasty. The beer was so-so. I love that they are doing some small batch stuff and experimenting. My wife had the IPA and it was delightful. I had the chai stout and it was served totally flat, but despite that still tasted pretty good.
Cool old two story yellow mansion with a nice bar right inside the door. The new brewer is doing a lot of interesting small batch beers. I hear the food is good but I have’t tried it yet. The service is quick and friendly. Oe of the overlooked places in the Denver Metro area.
