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 place in Downtown Denver. In a big old historic building right near Union Station. I really liked the layout, and just walking around the place.

Quality was OK, but nothing special. It's pretty cool that this place is one of the original micro breweries in Denver / Colorado. But the two beers I tried were just a notch or two above average.

Service was pleasant enough. But she was not only slow, but also forgot part of our order.

Selection was good. Wynkoop not only had quite a few of their own beers on tap, but they also had a handful of guest brews.

Food was not bad, but kind of forgettable.

Overall? Eh... not bad, but not great. I am glad I checked this place out, but I won't be in a rush to return anytime soon.

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.
