I can't believe I forgot to add my reviews of the brewpubs in Denver I visited! So, from my notes:

Wynkoop Brewerey is in an area of Denver called LoDo (for Lower Downtown). My cousin and I had stopped in on a Friday afternoon. We had heard the owner, now Denver Mayor, John Hickenlooper at the National Homebrew Conference, and were impressed with his nerve in putting a brewpub in a deserted area of town. Wynkoop and Hickenlooper were responsible for the revitilization of the LoDo area, and, frankly, deserve the praise. The bar area is huge, and there is a dazzling array of beers. I had a blond ale and a stout. We met up with Peter, from Australia, who was taking a five week vacation in the UK and the United States, and he was also attending the conference. We talked homebrewing while sipping some darn tasty beers. We could have spent the afternoon there, but wanted to hit a couple more pubs.

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.

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+

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.
