Tried this place yesterday afternoon. It was good, & I will go again. However I was not overly impressed.
The beers were good, the milk stout was great. I tried their Patty's Chili beer. I was found it quite bland until the chili aftertaste kicked in. Then it was just unpleasant. I am quite glad I sampled it rather than ordering a pint. The other beers I sampled, a weis, & the Railhead ale were exceptionally good. The Milk stout ( Cowtown) was outstanding. As good as any I have ever had. It alone warrants a return trip.
I did not eat , but the food looked good, the menu seemed standard for this type of place.
The service was not good. It was not bad. It was somewhat inattentive, & slow. They PUSHED food & lost interest after we ordered beers. There were 4 bartenders behind the bar, they were clustered together talking. It took 10 mins to pay my tab, 8 of it trying to flag someone down. The place was far from slammed. Moreover, the barmen were a bit surly. Denver is a very friendly town. They were not. In New York they would have been a bit curt. In Denver, they were downright rude. I was with my uncle, the two girls next to us were getting drinks @ light speed. Very interesting.
All that said, I will go back. it is worth the trip.

Went in around 4:00 with a big party incuding kids. Got a table upstairs which was good. Kids and adults were able to play pool, skee ball and bubble hockey. They had a cask condition ESB that was very good. Ordered the margarita/chilli beer specialty drink as a change of pace, it was not the best drink I ordered. I asked for a couple of other beers off the chalk board, both times the waitress came back and said they had just run out. They were also out of the Rocky Mountain Oyster Sout, a little dissapointing. Settled on a sour beer with merlot which was pretty good. I can see this place being busy at night, especially before a ball game.
