So, after many years of living in Colorado, I finally made it into the famous Falling Rock (in my defense, I was underage for most of it). All I can tell you is that it's like being a kid in a candy store. They have a very impressive tap selection with a huge bottle selection to boot. Every single tap flows with high quality beer. If your looking for bud light, this is not the place for you.

Atmosphere: There are over 20,000 bottles and tap handles covering just about every square inch of the walls of this place. It is actually a little intimidating. Other than that, it is a very typical bar, with little lighting and a very old feel to it. I wouldn't say it was in fact dirty, but it sure made you feel that way.

Service: The service was a lot better that what i expected based on previous reviews. My best friend and myself sat at a booth next to the bar. It took a few minutes for the staff to find us, but when they did, they took good care of us. I wish I could have gotten out servers name, but I didn't. She was awesome. Very knowledgeable, and quick. She was able to pair us up with beers based on what we had been ordering and she did a very good job at that. She also brought us a few samples to try before we dove into full pints.

Selection: It's incredible. Over 60 taps with a ton of bottles. A beer for just about every occasion.

Food: It was actually not bad. I had the blackened bacon cheeseburger, which was very good.

Value: The beer is world class, so the prices tend to be quite high.

Some things they need to improve on...
The website hasn't been updated in forever. If they could spend just a few minutes every week updating the beer list and the menu, that would be nice.
Their beer menus are quite disappointing. They were out of quite a few on the list and they had beers that never showed up. What they should do is update it quickly, and put a small review of each beer on there and maybe even BA's rating. I know that would take more than one piece of paper, but it would be very nice.

All in all, it's the best beer bar in the rocky mountain west, and probably top ten in the county.

I love this place because I know the owner and most of the staff. Always a great selection of over 80 beers on tap with some cask options. Food is just good pub grub. Greasy fried and perfect .

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.
