This is a legendary beer bar. I have heard lots about this place. Lets see how it goes...
As I walk up I see a TON of people out front. Loud music, and crowd. Did I just walk into a party/frat bar? The answer is NO. It is a breast cancer benefit. That is awesome. As I walk in, it becomes much less crazy than outside. The White Album was playing at a reasonable level, next come Roy Orbison. Again, really cool. A bar goes along the right, with a large patio outside, and I think an area downstairs. Dark wood abound. The wonderful tap wall covers the entire right hand side.
The service is decent, but with a bit of attitude. I asked what was on cask, the bartender said he did not know cause everything rotates so much. Throws me a menu, which lacked any reference to cask. I point that out, and he just scoffs, I guess I am not having any cask beer. The bar tenders do know the beer to a T. There are plenty of regulars, and they pay a little more attention to them than everyone else. Which is fine, just a little annoying. Lots of cool patrons that are always up for a chat as well.
Tons of beer. I can't list all of them. Highlights on tap, Bruery Coton, Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig. A lot of local beers as well. Odell, Avery, Great Divide. There is a hole book dedicated to Belgian bottles. Fullers Vintage Ale, that goes all the way back to 97 (the first year). Thomas Hardy that goes back to 94. An awesome selection. Several Russian River "sours" in bottles. Quality seemed fine from what I had, but I can't imagine that they have a lot of turn over on some things?
This place is really cool. What I find even more impressing than the selection, is the fact that there is no light filler. A must visit.

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.
