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.

Wow. Quite the place. Tons of taps and a pretty serious bottle list. Had a great night there and a pretty tasty lunch the next day. Check this place out for sure.

Best beer bar in Denver. The French Dip with spicy fries is awesome.
