Located in the LoDo area of Denver. A very large brick building situated near Coors field and many other beer bars. It is a three story brewpub with a comedy bar downstairs. The location couldn't be better.

Don't worry about getting a place to belly up, as there is ample seating and they even have pool tables upstairs!

I have had the food here many times and have found it to be average brewpub fare. Some odd balls like lamb sliders and the normal burgers and wraps. I had the blue crab cakes this time, and they were very good.

They have also stepped up their game in terms of beers. Along with the normal porters and IPA's they have 3 cask beers on tap at any given time. I had the smoked porter which was GREAT. I also like the seasonals like the TUT, which was a historic beer with wheat and honey. I also enjoyed the wet hop Belgian.

They also donate 50% of their proceeds of their flagship beer.

If this place was in Albany, NY it would be getting straight A's! Great location...good food...good folks...and a great selection of beers that has improved from 4 or 5 years ago. However, too many people are spoiled by the great beer bars and beers in Denver.

I always make a point of visiting Wynkoop when in Denver. With the increased quality of beers, this makes it a top 3 for me when in the area. If you haven't been to Wynkoop in a while, I think it would be worth checking out again.

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.
