Stopped here to meet a BA as part of my reverse beer haul expedition. Only had a pint or two so don't put too much credence in the quality, although I was happy with what I had. The place did have a nice atmosphere, with a large open door allowing fresh air to come in. Outdoor seating was available as well. Yet another brewery in Denver with many more to come. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. (409 characters)

V-Denver Beer Co. has a medium sized indoor/outdoor layout with a good patio and lots of community tables. The bar is in the center of the joint with some brewing equipment behind and to the side. There is also a barrel area in another room...I'm not sure what its like in there. The place is close to Denver's Central Business District and its always crowded with a mostly younger crowd.

Q-I've never had a DBC beer that blows me away, but most are drinkable. The Graham Cracker Porter is above-average (especially on tap), their IPA (Incredible Pedal) is so-so, and the Belgian pale ale that I tried last night was above average too. I've had some losers from DBC, but most of their beers are serviceable.

Ser-I have had a hard time getting great service here. It is sometimes slow (owing to the crowds, mostly) and last night the bar tender was just, um, kind of a jerk. I have had a few visits with people here who know what they are brewing, but that has been a while.

Sel-The beer selection is broad in terms of style, with everything from a barleywine to an IPA to a porter on offer last night. I have never seen a guest tap here.

O-The Denver BAs give DBC a hard time for various reasons. The bad rep is somewhat deserved, but there are worse beer joints in town and patio is good people watching. (1,309 characters)

I love Denver Beer Co. Besides the awesome beer the atmosphere is near perfect. Its a wide open space with an amazing porch-- lots of picnic tables with wired vines and christmas lights overhead. I took advantage of their pretty good game selection... nothing beats battleship and beer. Really enjoyed their Citrus Session. (325 characters)
