Surprised there aren't any reviews yet...

This place, at first glance, would pass as a dive. And at some point, it probably was. Typical bar on the right, booths on the left, tables in between where there really isn't much space. It opens up a bit in the back where a broken foozeball table provides traffic blockage, and a pool table that actually has room to play. A back "patio" that's really more of a small alley.

This all adds up to a nice place to have a beer. Service is above average on a busy night. Tap selections are wide, but they are varied. Several can options and the standby "Banquet" beer.

But this place has a twist: beer cocktails. I didn't try any b/c I'm a scaredy cat, but I guess they blend beer with liquors. Some sound interesting, but not to me. Maybe one day I'll try one.

Live band in the back---they were playing surfing music

I'm a sucker for a good dive bar and Star Bar definitely has that going for it. I visited on a Weds. afternoon so it was quiet and relaxed. The craft can selection is pretty awesome - Oskar Blues, Avery, and Ska were some of the standouts. There are about 6 taps on the wall, which had more Oskar and Avery, plus a Dogfish Head and Firestone Walker. The bartender definitely knew his beer, plus dropped some great advice on other beer destinations to hit in Denver and the rest of Colorado. I was there for beer, but I could tell they were serious about their whiskey and cocktails too. It's located in a great area, within crawling distance to Falling Rock, Great Divide, and a few other beer spots.
