Neat place. German bierhall feel to go with the German-inspired list.

Good German beer is hard to come by in hop/sour obsessed Colorado, so Prost was a hugely welcome addition. Their beer is absolutely spot on to the true German originals and they have a nice Disneyesque recreation of an Oktoberfest tent in the tap room. Particularly good choices are the Pils, Kolsch, and Dunkel, plus the higher gravity seasonals. It's in the trendy LoHi district and within walking distance of some excellent restaurants, so it's a nice stop before or after dinner. It's also quite close to Coors Field which can be good or bad depending on your timing.

Atmosphere - German beer hall meets sports bar?!? TVs are not needed. The place has so much potential, but does not execute it well enough. The outdoor patio is a huge plus, but this is supposed to be a German beer hall.

Quality - award winning German lagers. Done in true form.

Service - depends on the day and the server really.

Selection - 5 beers to choose from the day I went. This is expected from a new brewery, but I guess it would be difficult to do that many German lagers

Value - depends on the beer really.

Overall - this place is going through an interesting transition as the head brewer/ assistant brewer have left. I am interested to see where Prost goes from here.

A: kind of a fas food deli feel with beer pics on the wall. But, I got the tour of the brewery and that made up for the lack of atmosphere up front. The brew gear is pretty sweet but the bar is cheesy.
Q: great German lagers.
S: fine
Selection: seemed standard for German lagers. But different because of the deviation from the in your face hops that most craft brews are shooting for. Good beer.

6/16--so it turns out the brewer is gone and opening a new place. There's no reason for us to go back to Denver until that happens. We liked Denver and all but heat and altitude was too much for me--too many of the beers tasted too sweet or unbalanced and that's my palate, not Great Divide's fault. This new place would be a reason to return. Bill Eye--that guy--he's a wonderful brewer. I'm glad he's landing on his feet.



At first I couldn't understand why the scores of some of the other reviewers are so low when the beer is, after all, perfect. The setting is fine, some people like light and bright, some people like dark and gloomy. This is the former. The problem is is that the beer is so perfect that people naturally want perfect food to go with it and it makes them cranky when they don't get any food. Believe me, if they had food to match the beer at this place, it would be unbeatable and everyone would be happy.

The menu is short and sweet, beerwise. Just half a dozen or so of excellent German styles that are clean, crisp and taste wonderful. You really can't ask for much more from a beer. Oh yeah, all that flavor and low ABV's. That's nice, too.

C'mon, how hard is it to boil some brats in beer? You make German beer, give us German food. You can expand into full restaurant mode at your leisure, but give us some potatoes and wurst NOW!

P.S. The low score for selection is low because, well, they don't offer that many beers. It's a fact, not a criticism. They offer enough for their purposes.
