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. (1,626 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)
