Spent a lot of time here last Friday. Lunch AND dinner. I really enjoyed the experience and ended up staying at the hotel across the highway. The draft beer selection was really nice. 40 quality beers on draught. I had two beer flights, which was a really nice change of pace. It was fun to try small samples of a bunch of different beers. Then I drank a lot of Older Viscosity and Whiskey Barrel Gordon. Those were the two best beers on draft. I ate the Salmon, the green chile and also had a burger and fries. They were all really nice dishes. I found the service to be really good. For as busy as the bartenders were, they did a nice job. The video game room is small but really nice. They stuck that multi arcade game thing in there, so I was able to play Ms. Pacman.

One complaint though: I didn't order wine, but what the hell is with those wine glasses. If I ordered wine here, I'd be disappointed. You can't even swirl and smell the wine. Change the glasses. What the hell.

Overall, Liquids and Solids is a pretty amazing establishment. Dale is a really impressive businessman. I'm really impressed by this place and hope to visit it as often as I can. I wish it were a little closer to Loveland though.

Atmosphere - I dig the exterior; cool water features with empty kegs with an opening for water to come out onto rocks and plants. Patio is spacious with a stage for live music, another larger keg water feature, kids play areas and plenty of seating out in the open and within a covered patio area. Interior is two storied with the bar right behind hostess station and plenty of seating to the right and left and wrapping around behind the bar and upstairs. The decor is old rock and blues concert posters and vinyl album covers!
Quality - a lot of outstanding beers on the tap list from OB and beyond!
Service - early week at lunch, so not terribly busy, but busy enough to get an idea how good the service may usually be; waitress was prompt, helpful and friendly!
Selection - lots of variety, plenty from OB and many from other CO breweries, as well as Alpine, Evil Twin, Firestone Walker, etc!
Food - southern and Cajun fare; kids menu pleased my children, and my wife and I enjoyed our sandwich and burger.
Overall - a bit pricey, but well worth it as the beer selection and quality was outstanding and the food hit the spot!

After a long drive from the Springs we were looking for a dinner spot close to our hotel, and OB was across the highway. It has a fun atmosphere and the staff is happy to help. We started with a custom beer flight liked the scotch ale best. I had the enchilada special which was rather spicy. I like spice but this was so spicy it hindered my ability to analyze/appreciate my beer. My wife had the June Carter salad and LOVED it. We got chicken strips for the kiddo which were huge. The brownie sundae wasn't too impressive. Don't forget to bring some home town brewery stickers to put on the walls.

The only negative I can come up with was the foul odor coming from the water feature out front.

Hard to rate. Sat at the bar, was not served. Left and went somewhere that was interested in my money.

Great venue! Unfortunately, the food is horribly overpriced. Beer is good, and priced sufficiently, save for the specials which can run as high as $15/10 ounces. $12 'black and blue' burger wasn't any different than what you can get anywhere else for half that.

We stopped here after the GABF - on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park from Denver.

Everything about this place is great. They have their own beers on draft, in addition to many guest taps - mostly from
Colorado - and a few other regions (California, NY, etc.).

The bartender was extremely helpful and friendly telling us about their beers and the local beers.
The food - was awesome! All their meats (ribs, brisket, wings, etc.) are smoked for 4 hours - and their sauces are made with their beers.

Restaurant décor was cool and the place was immaculately clean.

If you want some great bbq and great beer, definitely go! We'll be back next time we're in Colorado!
