Visited 4/23/09, first stop pretty much straight from the airport, located in downtown right next to our hotel pretty much, reviewed from notes, one of the things I was most excited about with this trip and after going twice I could confirm that I was a bit letdown, particularly with the service, a few of the bartenders were rude and always in a hurry even when there was nobody else in line and the place was flat out empty, did not help that the first three things I ordered were not available even though they were on the draft list, Centurion Barleywine 2003 being the one that was most disappointing hearing they did not have, settled on Redstone Apricot Mead, a barrel aged Tommyknocker Bock, and Dogfish Head Burton Baton, they did have some nice bottles including New Belgium La Folie and Le Fleur Misseur, Isabelle Proximus, Woodville #21 quadrupel, the Lou Pepe series from Cantillon, and a few De Molen things I had not seen before, liked the downstairs area and the fact you can sit outside and have a beer, thousands of empty bottles line the walls of this place which is cool too, lots of interesting vintage Belgian lambics up there, had about sixty taps in all but who knows which ones had already blew or not, find out when you try to order them, nothing really special on tap like I expected after hearing all the hype about this establishment, seven dollars for small pours is a little outrageous too, did not dislike the place but was just expecting a lot more, still would go back, heard that suring brewery nights and GABF week is when this place gets really good, I will just have to wait and see (1,621 characters)

This is where I fell in love with craft beer on GABF weekend a few years back. The selection here is unparalleled and the food we had was very good. (149 characters)

A staple in Denver. Has a bit of a hole-in-the-wall feel to it but the tap list is excellent and the bottle list is also great. Location is also very good being steps from Coors Field and within a short walk of many other Denver beer spots. (242 characters)

Great beer list, but be prepared for attitude and poor service. Food is nothing special, but like I said, the beer list is always top notch. (140 characters)

Sixth visit here over a decade of time and the first when it wasn't packed. Daydrinkers, I guess, but everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about all the beers but especially the tiny local (almost nano) breweries they had on draft. Really liked the idea of 10 fast rotating special/seasonal brews of their copious taps are listed separately on an obvious chalkboard. The regular list does not disappoint. (407 characters)
