Stopped here on business in Denver. This place is right near Coors Field. It was real slow when I went in around 2:00pm, which was ok for a quiet brewpub visit. The bartender was helpful and knowledgable. They had all their standard brews on tap plus many of the other breweries featured in their guest menu. The food was alright, we had some typical pub fare. Three different flights are available. The prices were reasonable. I'd like to check out the other Breckenridge locations.

Stopped in with a colleague while in town for a conference. Large place with lots of tables and a nice looking bar. Decent tap selection of Breckenridge and other local stuff. Mostly standard stuff but decent selection overall. If you’re headed to the game, probably worth stopping in. But not a place to really go out of your way for. Prices were reasonable and service was decent enough.

My company had our annual sales meeting here in Denver. We always have a variety of activities planned at these meetings, and one of the choices was a Brewery Tour. Needless to say, I signed up for the brewery tour. This was our last stop of the day (3rd stop).

We arrived, a group of about 30, and had a little section reserved at the back of the rooms. The tap list was large and included both house made beers and local beers. We were given several samples and a pitcher or two, as well as a full glass of beer (these were dictated by the tour group director).

We had some nachos which were decent, but tasted even better as we were parched and hungry. I cant say a whole lot about the place. It was run of the mill brewpub with no outstanding features, except its location to downtown. I think there are better choices to go downtown for beer.

I ate there just tonight, monday. It was reasonably empty but that is no small mystery due to the rockies game in town and that its monday.

The food was alright, my burger was lacking a little. The spin dip was plenty tasty.

I drank their Irish red, it was sweeter initially then I was expecting but I definitely enjoyed it. i followed it with the Agave wheat that left me nonplussed. I'm not sad I had it but I prefered the red.

They also sell the "competitions" beers which I liked but felt vaguely obligated to drink the house brew.

Another in the long line of establishments on the Blake Street LoDo district in downtown Denver, in decent walking proximity to Coors Field. Usual long run of all brick buildings, to which this place fits right in. Big open area inside, its like 2 of those chain restaurants put together (applebee's, chevy's etc. . . ).

Quality of their beers and food really is exemplary of what the word average means. Hardly disappointing, hardly pleasureful. Hoppy stuff is malty, malty stuff is thin, but there's never really an off flavor. Food is the usual pub grub, burgers and fried food. Selections are the usual stuff you find at the store, nothing exotic or tap only to find.

They have some pool tables, but why bother, when Wynkoop has more, more limited beers, better food, cooler spot.

Overall, this place is just ok, I can think of about a half dozen places I would recommend before here within walking distance, this place does seem to be able to accomodate the most amount of people for a baseball game though, so I'd recommend this place for that reason, of if you simply have people who aren't that discerning or looking for ticks or rarities.

Not a bad spot to hit up before or after a baseball game. It will always be busy and loud, not quite a place to chill at, but its serves its purpose. My experiences have always resulted in the beer being better on their taps than what you get in their bottles and the food is good enough. Not a place you would every go to as a place to eat but enjoyable enough when you combine it with drinking and taking in a ball game. Never sat at the bar and only gone during a game day so all I have seen are busy servers simply trying to get their orders taken, put in, and served. Nothing special there, but that comes with the territory.

you know, i almost wish i never went here. always liked the beers they made, but this place kind of blew. huge applebees style layout more designed for food and entertainment than for beer, not good for a brewpub. no music playing, just sportscenter re-runs. waitress/barkeep was a straight bitch, and i dont toss that around. she was entirely disinterested in us or the breck products. the 471 ipa is still exceptional though, and for that i cant say anything too negative here. had some mediocre nachos and paid the reasonable bill and hit the road. doubt ill go back here, just bad vibes, especially compared to wynkoop and great divide which are just a few blocks away.

Visited during "off hours" so it was very slow, which was great. This place probably gets really obnoxiously busy during games since it is right across from Coors Field. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive the entire time, as well as knowledgeable about all the brews. I tried everything they had on tap and I was overall happy with the selection, though I know they didn't have as many brews on tap as some of the other Breckenridge locations.

I liked every brew I tried, and the samplers were well worth it. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Really, this was a great place to hang for the afternoon and drink/eat. Very laid back. I probably wouldn't have liked it as much during game time, but my experience was very good. They do sell some collectibles (shirts, pints) for those of you who are into that. Worth a visit for sure.

Located practically across the street from Coors field. Stopped in on a rainy Tuesday for dinner before the first snow of the season. Hopefully the lack of a crowd had to do with the weather.

Big, cavernous room with a raised platform bar in the front. Tables and booth seating scattered about. Large meeting room in the back. Not getting a good vibe from the space, though. The bar area is nicer.

Service was hard to measure. Our server was good, but we were his only table. Only 2 other tables going at the time we were there.

Beer choices were the standard BB fare and they did have the vanilla porter going. Hoping for a good fall seasonal, but not tonight. Beer prices were a pleasant surprise. Food menu is varied and the food is quite good. Buffalo chicken sandwich was very tasty.

Nice selection of merchandise by the front door.

Worth a stop if in the area, but there is a lot of good competition for your beer dollar in this neighborhood.

Pretty decent place right in the Coors Field region. Presumably, it gets pretty slamming during games, but it was pretty quiet when I visited. A good sized bar that seats plenty of people, lots of room and lots of tables. I was informed that the bar/dining area actually used to be the brewing room, and it was refurbished when they started doing most of the brewing at another location.

A mostly sports-bar-ish atmosphere, as you'd imagine, with a bit of a vintage feel. Lots of good Breckenridge beer on tap, perhaps 10 draught lines, and then Miller Lite for the more annoying / less discriminating clientele. Our bartender was friendly, helpful, and very informative, and really knew her stuff, not only about the beer, but about the whole Breckenridge corporation. Basic menu with mostly comfort food and pub food, but all good in that department. Reasonable prices.

This was a good place, and I only regret I didn't have time to visit other Breckenridge locations. But I'm glad I could at least get this one in.
