In a recent trip to Denver, a work counter part thought this would be the perfect place to take me given my affinity for beer. We went on a Friday evening around 6-6:30ish. Given the time and day, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly we were seated. The atmosphere is typical chain decor, but was clean and the staff seemed friendly. The menu wasn't too overly brazen, but had some interesting items. I was extremely disappointed with my food (and that's an understatement) - wild rice, mushroom and chicken. The chicken was flavorless and wild rice and mushroom combo left a bit to be desired. My dining companion was impressed with the enchiladas though - so perhaps my selection was the poor choice.
The service was phenomenal - our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. At no time did we wait for drinks (be it alcohol or water) and she was extremely pleasant.
I got the Brewmaster's Smoked Porter. My initial plan was to try the Smoked Porter and then sample another beer or two from their menu as I hadn't been to a Rock Bottom before. That was the plan anyway - the Smoked Porter was fantastic and found myself sticking with that rather than branching out.
I am not sure that I would eat here again, but I would definitely be up to trying additional beers here.

Larger place, with a quality and comfortable feel. Nice out door seating and drinking area, as well a multiple bar areas in side. Didnt realize it was a chain upon visiting and staying a while, so thats gotta be a good thing.
Decent place for a bite or quality draft. On the less seedy and touristy side of 16th. Not a must visit destination, but served the purpose of an easy and enjoyable enough brew stop, upon getting to downtown Denver. More interesting spots were sought out afterwords

Stopped in here when I arrived in Denver. Nice little place with typical mountain west decor of wood, stone, and brick. Nice big bar, some fermenters above. Helpful and friendly service, had 3 samplers with decent enough beer. Bartender didn’t charge me for any of those which was nice. Got some steak tacos and they were OK but obviously frozen chain food quality. Overall worth stopping in but no need to go out of your way.
