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.

Indeed, the beer selection here is incredible. Quite a variety of beers from all corners of the United States. I get the impression that beers move in and out of here pretty quickly, as a few beers I requested were no longer available despite being on the board and/or menu.
The bartender was happy to offer me samples and patient enough to let me make my mind up. He made a few suggestions that weren't that useful, but that's cool.
I'll just once again emphasize how great the beer selection is. Craft beer galore. The prices are about what you'd expect for Denver, which is to say $6 a pour and up, so the drinking won't come cheap.
I'd suggest visiting early afternoon on a weekday, the place will be pretty wide open and you'll probably get better service.

the atmosphere and beer selection are impressive, food menu not so much. Come here when the Rockies are on a roadtrip, or in the offseason. We got seats at the bar, and I ended up sitting next to a fellow Virginia Tech alum, a Denver resident but originally from VA Beach, and it was fun to have the annual Do I or Dont I watch the Hokies football conversation.
