I don't write much on BA, but Falling Rock moved me. Falling Rock is now in my top 2 for favorite beer bars.
The atmosphere is great, with a great spread of taps, an impressive wrap-around décor of beer bottles, high ceilings, lots of wood, and on and on...
Even for the quality Boulder - Denver beer scene, Falling Rock was great. What made Falling Rock really stand out was how it differed from the standard Denver-Boulder beer bar. It seems every Colorado beer bar is saturated with Colorado beer, which is great of course (drink local!), but I really wished I could have some West Coast tap brews instead of just hitting bombers at the beer store. Falling Rock differs, as it offers everything West of the Rockies.
We started wtih a Pliny the Elder on tap, which lived up to expectations. Great beer was matched with a great Bacon-Cheese-BarBQ-Burger and Turkey-Bacon-Guacamole-Sandwich. Both were excellent. Over all, it was the type of beer bar experience that makes one wish they lived next to Coors Field.
What also impressed me was the service. Our waitress was quick, thorough, and checked up on us often. She didn't stop for pleasantries or small talk, she just made eye contact , said "are you good?", and when she got our response, she nodded and left. Perfect. My ideal of great service.
It's a great beer bar. If you're somewhere between the Rockies and the Mississippi and find yourself moving through Denver, and want to try a quality selection of West Coast beers, stop by Falling Rock. It won't let you down. A top notch establishment. One of the best.

Excellent selection of Colorado beer, select US taps mostly from the west, and Belgium beers. Largest collection of bottles from around the world I've seen. Very reasonably priced. Knowledgable staff. Great tap house. Highly recommended if visiting Denver. Located centrally to other breweries and restaurants.
