File this under places I should've gone to back when they first opened.
This is essentially the Mountain Sun location in Denver. Everything is done in a nice wood decor with a bar, booths lining the walls, and tables (big and small) in the middle of the floor. There's also a patio outside, which would be terrific for warm days.
One other nice touch were board games, to give the place a relaxed family feel during normal restaurant hours.
They have 8-10 Mountain Sun taps, which run the gambit as far as styles go. Everything from a ginger wheat beer, to an IPA, to a black Saison in collaboration with Avery. In addition to those taps, they also have 7-8 guest taps including some impressive and unusual things like St. Bernardus Wit, Prima Pils, Pliny the Elder (!), and Young's Double Chocolate.
They probably have the 2nd best selection of draft beer in the area, and the prices are great, too. If you haven't had the Mountain Sun beers - they're all solid. I really liked the amber, java porter, and tripel, but everything was good if not great.
The food was solid bar food. Burger, sandwiches, fresh cut fries, and even some southwest items. Nothing ground breaking, but for "bar food" it's about as good as you can want. The fries are flat-out amazing.
While I don't really live anywhere near Vine St. - this place makes me wish I did. It's one of the nicest beer destinations around.
The only real knock on the place is that they don't take credit cards. They do have an ATM in the place, so that's only a small complaint.

EDIT: After going here regularly for several years, I find myself heading to the VSP as much for the food as the beer. Everything is made fresh and one of the best bets is to just go with whatever the special item of the day is. The VSP is one of my top 2-3 places in all of Denver.

A favorite local brewpub of mine, you can always find a casual/chill environment (sometimes family friendly during peak dinner hours which can be less chill) , great patio space during warmer/sunny weather, and really nice staff. Side patio has corn bag toss and high top tables to wait while you wait for a table. Food is above average and pretty good value as well, but be forewarned it's CASH-only (but ATM with $1 fee is available). Beer list is typically about 10+ Mountain Sun/Vine Street beers plus 4+ guest taps and sometimes bottles. Great events throughout the year including Stout Month during the entire month of February. Must visit place in Denver. Only downside IMO is the lame Mason Jars (CLEAR!?!) growler fills.

As a local, I choose not to frequent this place for the following reasons. 1. Restaurant atmosphere 2. Overpriced. ($17/growler!) 3. Overhyped and crowded.

Atmosphere - plenty of seating inside; on the patio and at the bar; nice and open! Games for everyone to play while they're hanging out and they're cool if you bring in your own games! Great people watching, from the local hippie scene to the families with kids!
Quality - haven't been disappointed with anything here really. They don't take credit cards, so that may be a shock to anyone not carrying cash, but they have a great "good karma" program!
Service - friendly and fairly efficient, though a busy weekend can be hit or miss.
Selection - something for everyone, and luckily for me usually at least 3 that I really like!
Food - excellent and a variety of some off beat stuff and some very basic comfort food!
Value - considering everything...this place is a must!
