A-Falling Rock is located in the heart of the bar/club/ball park area of downtown Denver. It has a slightly funky parking lot-ish patio that isn't exactly a quaint sidewalk cafe in Europe, but gets the job done. Inside, the place could be a beer bar in any city in America. It has beer paraphernalia on the walls and that slightly dark, dingy feel that lets you know this isn't TGI Fridays.

Q-The beer selection here is done right. They have top-end Colorado brews on tap and in the bottle, a good assortment of high-end American craft, and a smattering of well-known imports (bottle and draft) to fill things out. On any give day, you might find Pliny or Blind Pig or Petrus Aged Pale on tap. Ain't nothing wrong with that. (Their special events are good too).

Ser-The food and beer service is a little suspect. I have never encountered the rude service that people sometimes mention when discussing Falling Rock. On the contrary, the staff has been friendly each time I have visited, but I cannot fully endorse the servers. Sometimes beer and food come slowly or incorrectly prepared, and the waitstaff doesn't know all that much about the beers they are serving.

Sel-The breadth of beers available is quite good. The tap list covers a broad variety of styles and while it Colorado-centric, the Falling Rock does a good job of spreading the styles out. The bottle list, likewise, is good (if Colorado-focused) and covers a good variety of beer styles and breweries.

F-The food here is marginal. If you set your expectations at "bar food" level, you won't be disappointed, but compared to other beer-centric options in town, Falling Rock could step it up here. For example, my lunch has been a touch on the greasy side on multiple occasions, but the food is edible, if not gourmet.

V-I think the price of beer here is very reasonable, if not cheap for the downtown location. The prices for food, likewise are pretty good (although, as noted above, the food is not high-end).
