Made the mistake of visiting the Wynkoop on a weekend (Saturday night). Downstairs portion of the bar was pleasantly full and abuzz. We found the service responsive if not terribly knowledgable. Beers were not unimpressive with a nice English IPA and pleasant ESB on cask. The Scotch and amber were fine and the chili beer was interesting. Hot wings came quick and tastily.

The mistake really showed itself when we migrated up to the "billiards room" billed as "the most elegant in downtown Denver." There we discovered out-on-the-town clad women and plowed guys, white Russians or margaritas in hand. Service was restricted to the obviously drunk tables and the little attention we received was of the "you're drinking beer?!" variety. Not an enjoyable experience.

The spot might be fine on a weekday afternoon but on the weekend it was a recipe for disaster. (866 characters)

The place is nice and the food is good. The beer is mediocre at best. There's a better beer bar around the corner that's more worth your time. (142 characters)

Great brews, great service, a full vegan menu, and a comedy club downstairs. Left Wynkoop with a "rail ale" t-shirt and pint glass. Trains and beer in one little package. A+ (173 characters)

Nice LoDo Denver brewpub. Some interesting and unique beers, but nothing earth-shattering. The Colorojo imperial red beer is probably my favorite, but is not for the faint of heart. Each time I've been there, several supposedly on-tap beers are not available. Staff has been hit or miss; sometimes attentive and knowledgeable, other times uninterested and slow. Worth going to for the food; great sandwiches and usual pub fare. (432 characters)

Their Belgian IPA and Chili beer were standouts. Chili beer was a great session beer at 4.2%. (94 characters)
