This place is really big. As I walk in there is an odd shaped bar in front that kind of wraps around the front section. There is a dinning area on this same floor. Lots of nooks and crannies. The first floor is a very enjoyable pub atmosphere. Below that there is a theater/comedy club. The floor above is a pool hall. Like I said, big, but it never feels cavernous or losses its homey pub feel. I really like that there is something for everybody, and that no section gets in the way of any of the others enjoyment.

I sat at the bar, and the service was good. The bartenders new the beers, and informed me of what was on cask. They had three beers on cask, which where excellent, and another eight or so taps. The selection varied from wheat, pilsner, light, even a chile beer. A stout and Schwarzbier as well. On cask is an English IPA, ESB, and Porter. The casks are in excellent condition, and the selection rating would have been docked a few if those were not available. The bartender also gave me a free sample of their Silverback Pale Ale (in a can) which was great.

I had a buffalo burger with blue cheese for diner. It was really good. A place I would recommend for a good meal and good beer.

Overall, this is a great brewpub. I did not get to try everything, but what I did have was great. I will be returning to try some more during my week here. A brewpub I really enjoyed. There are lots of different atmospheres for people to enjoy. If one does not suit your fancy, try another. A great idea, along with high quality beer. Highly recommended for a visit.

Cool spot in one of the old downtown areas of Denver. Parking is a bit of a bitch, depending on when you visit, but it's a great area to walk through, weather permitting. Multi-leveled building, with bar area to the right of the entrance, and seating to the left. Bathrooms are downstairs, where there is also some vintage furniture, barrels, and you can spy on the brewing equipment. Outdoor seating overlooking the adjacent street, too, which is great when the weather is nice. Bartenders were friendly and prompt. There were about 10 beers on tap when we were there, I believe, as well as a nitro tap. Beer to go in growlers. Full gastropub menu, although we didn't eat, so I can't really comment on that. Definitely worth a stop on your Denver travels.

Wynkoop has done some really good beers over the years, but sometimes when I go over there, I just see the usual and not anything new that is of interest to me. Good thing they have a few longstanding favorites. They might be able to do some new ones with the expansion that is coming soon, so I'm looking forward to another visit down the road.

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.
