Stopped in here the week after GABF after hearing lots of good things.
Seems like a pretty novel idea. Fresh food and great beers, owned and operated by two brothers.
The place looks like a pretty standard downtown establishment. A small patio out front, a bar, and a long dining room that leads back about 30 yards into a slightly more open room with a projector/TV. Behind the bar you can't miss the large variety of taps and the huge bottle cooler. Decor looks almost like a wine cellar, and it works well with the atmosphere.
When seated you'll notice that there's a daily beer menu and a food menu. The beer menu is expansive and while they have "only" about 25-30 drafts, they're all world class beers. From local standards like 90 Shilling all the way to Rogue Double Chocolate, Blind Pig, and exclusives like San Diego Session Ale. Most options are in 16oz pint glasses, but a few are available as a 10oz or in a snifter. Some offer you a choice and the staff seemed flexible enough to give you whatever you want anyway. The bottle selection is among the best you'll see anywhere. They have roughly 75 bottle options divided by country. Everything from macros to obscure bombers. There's also 20'ish wine options if that's your thing, too.
I'm VERY impressed with the beer list.
The food is divided into plate sizes. Appetizers, small plates, sandwiches, stndard meals, and a meal with sides. We went with the appetizer combo plate of cheese curds, fried pickles, and potatoes (which are a bit like tater tots). The cheese curds were using several different cheeses and made for a great snack. The pickles were pickled using a unique brine that gave them a fresh but familiar flavor, and the potatoes were spiced just right. Familiar foods with a unique spin. All of them worked very well.
In addition we also had the roast beef dip and vegan tacos. Again, unique takes on familiar dishes. Everything was great. Did I mention the fries are amazing? Yup, they're like nothing I've had before. I commented to the waitress and the chef even came out to let us know how they were made. That, plus promptness on drinks and food, make me really appreciate the service.

I like this place a lot and I think more and more I'll probably end up here instead of some other places I always hit up.

Food prices aren't "cheap" but with everything being homemade, I'd say what you're getting is a lot more affordable than similar other spots in the area. Still, much like Euclid Hall, it's definitely not going to be competing with Chipotle and Good Times.

Standard bar appearance, very "new" looking.

Friendly staff, friendly patrons.

Great beer selection and excellent food. Reasonably priced.

It's pretty much anything you could ask for if you're looking for a combo of beer and food. A definite stop in LoDo.

I came because I heard the food was outstanding and the beer selection great. That's a pretty accurate representation.

I can't add much, but I will say the pork schnitzel I had here was to die for. I loved the sauce and the pickled veggies that accompanied it. Just an outstanding dish.

I ordered a sour, don't recall which brewery, and it smelled like absolute dog crap. The risks of trying new beers and always looking to get a new tick on Untappd. I think my second beer was something safer and designed to pair with my schnitzel, that was a much better decision.

Overall, just as I'd been led to believe, this place has great food and beer.
