Freshcraft: small but comfortable place with an L shaped bar that seats about 15. There are tables in the back. Roughly 20 beers on tap, as well as some bottles and cans. Very good, well thought out selection. The food is different than you might expect while still remaining fairly basic (Deviled Eggs, ChicharrĂ³nes, P.E.I. Mussels, Bangkok Shrimp, Whiskey-Agave Glazed Smoked Pork Belly, Pesto Chicken Sandwich, etc.) and reasonably priced. Very good service. Definitely worth a visit.

Freshcraft is a wonderful craft beer located near Union Station, and along the route of the FREE mall bus (Blake Street stop). It has a homey feel; small but comfortable, with a J-shaped bar in the front with booths toward the back. While the beer selection is not as extensive as others, it is unique in the variety of craft beers; such as Three Floyds and Pliny The Elder, along with several delicous Colorado brews. I especially enjoyed the digital beer menu above the bar. In addition to 26 taps, Freshcraft also offers a very wide selection of bottles and cans - just too many to count!

This is a great place to have a good meal with an awesome accompanying beer list. It is not light on the wallet, but everything is high quality. A delicious healthy meal is obtainable here. There are 25 taps and a very large bottle selection.

Vibe: The place consists of four distinct seating areas: outdoor seating on the sidewalk, at the bar near the front, in booths in a long corridor, or in a separate dining room in the back.

Quality: Beers were served in glassware at the proper temperatures.

Service: I stopped in for lunch during the middle of the week and they had one bartender and one waiter working so service was prompt.

Selection: The place had about 25 beers available on-tap. Most beers were available in a 16 ounce or 10 ounce serving size, making it easier to try multiple beers. It also had a wide selection of cans and bottles. Many of the beers were from Colorado or other parts of the western portion of the country.

Food: I stopped in for lunch and took advantage of their lunch special, where you can order from select menu items (including a daily special) and pair it with one of several choices of a pint of beer for only $3 extra. I tried the special of the day, which was a chicken sandwich with cheese and bacon and came with one side - I went with "spudpuppies", which is a hybrid of a tater tot and a hushpuppy.

Decent sized restaurant/bar with a respectable bottle and tap list and good food. It was pretty affordable and the beer seemed good in terms of selection, variety and hypebeastism. Food is standard pub fare fancied up a decent amount and was all good to very good. Service was okay, though didn't seem as beer-focused as some places, but it wasn't an issue.

Solid selection, good food, and a great, laid back staff. I recommend placing a reservation though

Comfortable, cool vibe at this place on Blake St in LoDo.

Good selection of local/national beers, good balance of styles. Beers all poured properly with nice amount of head, right temperature, and reasonably priced.

Food was excellent. Fall menu seemed to be German-inspired and very creative. My 3 dinner mates & Ireally enjoyed our meals, well-prepared and good proportioned.

Service was prompt and friendly, couldn't ask for more.

This is definitely a place to seek out while in Denver.
