Needless to say, Falling Rock Tap House was a must stop on my recent trip to Denver. I had been looking forward to checking this place out for a few years now, so I was really glad when it all became a reality.
Dropped by around 5 PM or so on a Saturday in hopes of getting there when it wouldn't be too crowded. We were able to find a booth and right in front of a huge screen TV, so I watched the Uconn vs. Arizona game (Uconn won and advanced to the Final Four. Go Huskies!). There is an awesome collection of beer bottles and draft handles that decorate the walls and are sure to make you feel nostalgic.
I needed about 10 minutes of pure silence as I studied the phenomenal beer selection here. The beer menu is split in half for drafts and bottles with our server mentioning they offer about 85 drafts.
Some draft highlights were Russian River Pliny The Elder, Blind Pig, Damnation, Stone IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Ruination, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot '10 & Bigfoot '11, Green Flash Le Freak, West Coast IPA, Bear Republic Racer 5, Lost Abbey Serpents Stout and on and on and on.
There was also two cask beer selections, Left Hand Blackjack Porter and Dry Dock Oat Malt Stout. Cask beers were $6.
The bottle selection is amazing as well and probably the best I've ever seen. Tons of Avery vintages like '04 Czar Imperial Stout, DFH, '99 and '04 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot, '94 Rogue Old Crustacean and a '94 Thomas Hardy.
Falling Rock is without doubt one of the premier beer bars that I've been to and probably one of the best in the country. A true destination when in Denver or even remotely close. Highly recommended.

One of the best beer selections in the city - unmissable if you're only in town for a day or two. Very patient, friendly staff. The food is almost entirely freezer-to-fryer, and is largely unimpressive. Fortunately, it's walking distance from a number of quality eateries. Plan accordingly!

Stopped here on my first night in Denver for a friend’s birthday. Huge list of brews on tap and in bottles. Anything from Bruery anniversary beers to Eclipse variants to Gueuze. Make sure to check out the bottle list inside as there are a lot of big rarities on there. Unfrotunately, they had gotten cleaned out after GABF but the bottle list included Hommage, LP Gueuze, LP Kriek, other Cantillon, lots of Bruery beers, etc. If you’re going big, then things get a little pricey (Fruet was $70 a bottle, Cuir was $58). They have Pliny and Blind Pig on tap, but it’s not on the tap list so be sure to check that out. Easily the best beer bar I have ever been to, but bottles really are on the pricey side. Gets busy so make sure to find a seat early. Had a chicken sandwich and it was decent pub food. Definitely recommended.
