Visited May 2013:

Stopped in on a Thursday after work and found the place to be full, but not overly so. I tried to stop in on Monday, but the place closed at some crazy early hour, which I found to be odd, but given its location (still in the downtown area, but off the path for most), I can see why. The place had a good vibe, relaxed, and the bartenders were welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable about the beer. Each beer that I had was served in a proper pint glass and I think that they were only $5, which to be honest is not that bad. I had both the Nomad and the Rye Hoss, both excellent and I wish that I could get them in Georgia. They must have had 12 taps going that evening. No food options and they don’t take AMEX, but overall, the next time that I stop in Denver, I am stopping in.

This place can get really really loud. I like to drink good beer and when you drink, you tend to get loud but the day I was there I had to scream to talk to my sister standing inches from me. It is not a very big space though they were about to open a new area in the building. The quality is very good and the number of beer styles on tap is excellent and diverse. They had a few 750 bottles available for purchase. The best part were the prices. 4 oz tasters were $1 each and that dollar goes to charity. Being from out of town, I went back and forth from pints to tasters to try and experience the beers i don't see in Jacksonville. Overall, I feel that once it is expanded, the inside will be much nicer, though probably not quieter. The outdoor seating was nice too and seemed like quite a few places to sit considering the small size of the building.

taproom on a thursday afternoon around 3pm. packed at the bar and took a little while to get noticed, but the beer was fantastic! belgian yeti lively on tap and a baltic smoked porter. full glasses for 4 bucks each is pretty damn reasonable. really neat big windows through to the brew room so you can watch the workers and check out the barrels etc. (one curious barrel marked "sour - 1/15/2011"... hmmmm). cool to just sit and watch. main complaint was the lousy pop music playing at a high volume. really took away from the vibe, but with all those beers fresh on tap at a decent price, i will be back. parking was also a bit seedy, so that is one minor drawback as well

Small taproom with all Great Divide beers (and only GD beers) at dirt cheap prices.

With all of the choices of taprooms and beer bars in Denver, you could spend weeks without going to the same one twice. If you enjoy GD beers, this place is a must. While the inside is small, it is comfortable. Bare bones bar and seating on the inside, a few tables outside for the smokers. Service is good and the beer is fresh. Best of all are the $3 pours (between 12 and 16 oz, depending on selection). Worth a return visit.
