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.

Prost is in a small warehouse located across the highway from Denver's LoDo district. They're out of the way of the LoDo bustle, while still being easy to find.

Inside, Prost has a German beer hall theme going. The space is relatively small and industrial, but they've done a nice job with it. A stone-topped Z-shaped bar with about a dozen seats serves as the room's centerpiece. The rest of the inside seating is made up of long tables. A small patio provides outdoor seating on nice days.

The beer list is rather short. They have four year-round beers, plus rotating seasonals of classic German styles. On my visit, they were unfortunately out of Kolsch, which left me with only their four regulars to choose from. I really appreciated the traditional glassware for each beer.

Prost's staff is very nice, plus they offer frequent brewery tours. On both my visits, the crowd was mellow. Overall, I have to say that I will be back, as their Weiss is one of the best ones I've had.

A little break in the weather and off to Prost. I like German beer so I'm looking forward to this. There is free parking in front of Prost but it's full and we park off to the side in back. That is free, also. We have my pup tagging along and sit outside. There are about four picnic tables there and there is a food truck. Although the tables are wet, most are filled but there is room and we have fun meeting and talking to locals and visitors to Denver.

I have the Weissbeir. It comes in a 22 oz. Hefeweizen glass with a big frothy head. It's fantastic! A couple of locals comment on it's quality, too. I highly recommend it. You have to order your beers at the bar but they are friendly, and willing to talk about Prost.

The inside is set up with picnic tables, too. Wood floors and wood tables that seem perfect on an overcast night. I'm happy with the place. There are probably only 5 beers and they are made at Prost so the selection is not great but I have to recommend it highly for the friendly atmosphere and the wonderful Weissbier.

Visited 6/23/2013, 12:30 - 1:15pm

After a lengthy/filling brunch stop (almost 2 hours) at aptly-named Linger nearby, we drove a few short blocks (could have walked) to Prost. It's a dark-green metal building with a gravel parking lot, terraced picnic bench seating & umbrellas with a nice view of downtown Denver. Inside feels somewhat like a German bierhall, with a pitched ceiling festooned with hanging banners/flags, more bench seating and Bavarian schwag adorning the walls. The bar is a sturdy slab of concrete that zig-zags around two corners; glassware and Prost gear are behind, TVs (tuned to Rockies-Nats game) above, and a cooler full of pre-packaged growlers are nearest the door.

The place had only been open for about 15 minutes when we arrived, so only 2 or 3 tables/stools were occupied. Both my wife and I have an affinity for German beers and so, having never tried Prost's lineup, we opted for the Taster Flight ($6.50) of all 5 drafts: Pils, Weißbier, Dunkel, Alt and (rotating tap) Kölsch. We agreed that Weißbier (chalkboard instructs one to properly pronounce it "vice beer") is excellent, so we ordered a 0.5l glass when finished with the samples. Of the others, Pils and Kölsch were both good, but neither of us cared for the Dunkel or Alt much, at least when compared to some of our favorites.

Service was fine, good pours and friendly. While we sat outside in the shade, one of the women working the bar joined us and chatted about the Prost history (coming up on one year in business), its brewer (Bill Eye) and the Denver beer/food scene. We eventually headed back inside for some cool air-conditioning and were mostly left alone to watch the baseball game.

Overall tab for tasters and a glass of Weißbier = $11.50 = reasonable. I noticed that besides their draft beer, Prost offers some mixes - with cola or schuss or hops, for example - and food from Baker Street Pretzels or from Joe's, a food truck parked out front.

Glad we stopped in. Wish there had been a little more selection, but a good start to our beer adventures in Denver.

Located in downtown Denver, the brewery isn't far away from Coors Field. There’s a few televisions in this beer hall and plenty of space. It can get fairly crowded, but there's also an outside area to sit. German beers only. Not a wide selection, but what they have is fair.

Visited Prost about 15 minutes before last call :(

Really nice german lagers/ales - I went for a massive mug of maibock, which certainly put a smile on my face. Nice patio overlooking the city. The interior is a tribute to a bavarian beer hall. Enjoyed playing large-format jenga.

I could have spent a few hours here, but unfortunately closing time was before sunset on Sunday.
