Another random Denver beer spot I'd never been into just because of it's relatively odd location.
When you walk in, there's a normal sized bar with a dozen or so taps behind it, but only 5-6 chairs. A quick glance reveals that they not only have the standard Breckenridge beers (Avalanche, Agave Wheat, etc.) but they also have all of the seasonals, all of the 471 brews, and a few random one-off beers like a Saison. While I'm not a huge fan of many of their everyday brews, I really do like their 471 line-up, most of their seasonals, and I love the oatmeal stout. Happy hour beers are only $2.50 (any of them), and pitchers were cheap, too. Those prices are pretty much unmatched if you like any Breck beers.
Service was surprisingly good considering it was a Friday night and there were really only 4 employees running the whole place.
BBQ is solid. I had the Carolina pork (which really did taste more authentic than I expected, even if it isn't my favorite), and the sausages with some mac & cheese and potato salad. All of the items would've been received well in the southeast, which is always a good reference point for BBQ.
It's still a little out of the way to get to, and parking is a little hit or miss...but I like this place. If I were closer I'd probably end up here a lot.
EDIT: Now that Breck and the Wynkoop are on the same team, they also have beers from the 'Koop, too. I've also found that the 10th and Osage light rail stop can make this place a little more approachable, but it's still a bit inconvenient. I'd guess that once Santa Fe starts to fill in a bit more, we might see the light rail path get an additional stop that's much closer to this area.
