We arrived to an unforseen wonderfulness. Monday night is all-night happy hour. And we were immediately teleported to a very happy land indeed, a land where all beers were only $2.00 each and even our meals were reduced in price.

The atmosphere can't be beat for a brew pub. Staff was super friendly and attentive without being pushy. They would just glide by so you could stop them if needed, and occasionally check in on us. Very good bbq, and on occasion a whiff of hickory smoke would enter the bar area. Since the bar was otherwise smokeless, I assumed that they were just opening a window, door or vent and bringing in the smoke to remind us that they really were smoking it all there. Pretty cool though since it wasn't enough to actually make us smell like the bbq, or to interfere with the food and beer.

The beer was very good. The vanilla porter was very vanilla, but I still really liked it.

The oatmeal stout was a very rich choco-coffee thing which was exceedingly enjoyable.

The 471 IPA smells big, pretty balanced (in the way an IPA is balanced). Lots of stuff going on but a singular bitter note stands out for the length of the drink. A very good double IPA. I suppose I should have grabbed some to go.

Well, I guess I will have to stop back next time. Nice!

We drove on over to Breckenridge BBQ after kenneling my pup. I wanted to go here but there isn't any patio so no pooches. It's south of Denver and we lost our GPS signal going there but were able to find it. There is plenty of free parking so getting a spot was not hard.

The first thing you notice is the full bar. Most of the action was at the bar, probably regulars. There are booths and tables for two of four. We were seated immediately and our server came over soon afterwards and we ordered a couple of beers and brought them over quickly.

We split a platter and since it was Thursday we get a free beer. The overall cost is reasonable and several employees came over to make sure everything is ok. A brewery tour started up and they came back all smiles. The place started to really get busy. We missed the rush.

I had the Lucky U IPA and a Summerbright Ale. Neither were my to my liking but the styles are usually what I prefer. The BBQ meats were good, the cole slaw was ok but the mac and cheese looked and tasted like it was the kind you buy and then the added bacon bits to the top. Overall, the food was just ok but not satisfying.

Located at the "World Headquarters" of Breckenridge Brewery, this is a small, no frills barbecue place with a full selection of Breckenridge beers (about 15 of them). When you enter, if you plan to eat, you are directed to a take out counter. The menu is limited to all things pork, except curiously ribs. Ribs are available with mixed offerings.

I had the Sampler which included three large spare ribs (well smoked), a spicy kielbasa-like sausage and chicken wings. The sausage and ribs were excellent. The wings were poor. I also ordered a bowl of chili which was superb. Although these two items were appetizers, the portions were huge.

The atmosphere was typical back-of-the-garage no frills BBQ joint. The bartender, however, was extraordinary. I would say he knew more than half of the patrons by their first names. Regardless, he kept speaking to me as if I were one of them.

Our first brewery visit in Denver was to BBB. This location is located in the south side of Denver, near the Santa Fe arts district.

Walking into this establishment the food order window is to the left, bar straight ahead, and seating to the right. My wife and I had a large sampler that included; Lucky U IPA, Small Batch 471, 72 Imperial, Well Built ESB (our favorite), and a few more that I can’t recall. The Well Built was a beer that memories are made of; unfortunately we could score a bottle or two to bring home with us.

The atmosphere was laid back on a Thursday afternoon. A few beer geeks, and I assume a few workers from other breweries were there since they all wore the same brewery gear.

We had the Carolina BBQ and some kind of crazy good chicken and sausage sandwich. Both of these sandwiches were very good.

We really loved this place and the service was very good to match the other factors.
