Ah,Wynkoop… so much history… Beer Drinker of the Year… Denver Mayor… Once co-owned Upstream in Omaha… sparked the revitalization of LoDo… and now I finally pay a visit.

I’ve seen this kind of brewpub before. It looks like Upstream or Court Avenue or, frankly, many other brewpubs in the US. You know it as well as I do; lots of wood, kind of English and old worldly but clearly a restaurant. The lively bar is to the right on the main floor (I didn’t explore beyond that), fairly large with seating scatter throughout. I didn’t understand why there weren’t bathrooms on the main floor? Or was there and I was too stupid/tired to find them?

Anyway… I visited Saturday of GABF 2007 in the afternoon. It was not busy at all. Our party of 6 was seated right away. The service as good but our waitress substituted a beer that was order for something “similar.” Somehow a cream ale and some random dark ale are the same thing. That is crap… or laziness. I would have sent the beer back.

The food menu was very limited, not much sounded very good. However, I settled for the wings and they were tasty. Everybody in the group liked the food. As for the beer… yawn. I had the Wiezenbock which tasted like a strong Hefe. Nobody seemed that keen on the beer, nobody ordered a second… even with a solid selection on paper. Also, $4 for a pint seemed high.

I was neither impressed nor disappointed. I can’t say I need to return as frankly the beer wasn’t that good. Maybe I was being a mega snob or something… no, it just wasn’t that great. Good. Solid. Respectable, sure, but this is Denver. I can get great beer here. This kind of brewpub works in second rate beer cities, not Denver. Maybe I was disappointed…

Varied selection of beer on tap, friendly bartenders, awesome food menu..enjoyable all the way around. Upstairs was a billiards hall and game room (we played skeeball haha). The beer I had was Mile HIPA. Bill had the Colorojo. I had an interesting salad with raw kale, quinoa, apricots and cheese etc. 2 blocks from Coors Field. Highly recommend if in LoDo neighborhood.
