hubby and I have visited twice since getting to Denver for GABF. First time we walked from downtown, a disconcerting experience. Allot of vagrants, homeless, pan-handlers, you get the idea, once we started up Capital Hill. I recommend driving or taking a cab, even though it's a short walk from downtown. Just didn't feel overly safe. Anyway, servers have been great, helpful, knowledgable for the most part. A few myths or bits of misinformation were handed out during both visits. Once was the bartender describing what "tripel" meant, while she wasn't exactly wrong, she wasn't exactly right either. She said something about "tripel the malt", everything I've ever been taught about the origin of tripel is that it's either to do with ABV (3% for a single, 6% for a dubble, and 9% for a tripel) or it's like how some breweries use "reserve" meaning the best the brewery offers. There is lots of speculation on it....anyway all of that aside, this place is pretty cool inside, decor wise. Has a bit of a Goth feel to it. They have an outdoor area which is nice on a warm night ;-) The beer menu is almost all Belgian ales, some local Colorado an other US Belgian style ales. Nothing spectacular though. Just your standard Belgian ales. Mostly things I can get at a store. Was hoping for some rare stuff at the least, especially being GABF week. Food menu is good, they have some happy hour specials. During our visits the clientele ranged between college aged kids to couples with young kids.
We'll probably go back once or twice more before we head back to Anchorage next week.
