I went to Rock Bottom the other day, it was a pretty cool place; the atmosphere was fun - very similar to the other Rock Bottom's I've been to. Our waiter was good, but wasn't extremely knowledgeable about beer.

The beer selection was solid with around 10 brews to choose from; the beer itself was decent, the hefeweizen, rocktoberfest, and brown ale were among my favorites (I got the 9 beer sampler), while the kolz weizen and pale ale were among the worst - the rye porter was also fairly weak.

The beer was decent but it was far too mild and lacked any complex or intriguing flavors. Rock Bottom is a pretty fun place with okay beer, but it would have been much better if the brewmaster went for more flavor (maybe like the Founders guys...).

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.
