Checked this place out while in town for work. About five blocks down from Coors Field Fresh Craft is a smallish pub and a nice spot to grab some quality beers.

A wrap around bar up front, patio in front and tables in the back, the place is a newish standard style bar. Some brewery pics adorn the walls up front.

With 20 taps and 100 or so bottles the selection is the strong point here. The taps are focused on Colorado breweries such as Odell, Left Hand, Avery and Wyncoop. They are served in small and large sizes $3.50/$5.50 so you can try out a good number without getting trashed. The bottle selection was impressive with a few Russian River and Lost Abbey beers.

Service was good, the bartender was friendly and gave good suggestions.

Food looked good but I had just eaten.

Recommended.

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.

I went here recently for the first time. It was good for sure but I feel like it fell a little bit short of what people have told me about it. Overall the place seems great but I think I was over hyped on it. I'm fairly new to the area and everyone raves about Freshcraft.

The beer selection was great... in theory. It seemed like every time I asked for something it was already gone. It was late in the evening though so I can not fault them too much and did manage to get several good beers that I don't normally see around. The food was pretty good but I was expecting more. I'll be back soon and try to explore the menu more.

If you want to combine a good meal and craft beer in Denver, this is the place to go. The food as amazing and the beer list was solid, but not spectacular. If you are only looking for beer, you are doing yourself a disservice by going here, with all of the other options in the city. This, however, is the perfect dinner destination in Denver.

Freshcraft's beer selection is why it's on the map. A constant list of rotating beers always makes me return, and the beers aren't tame excuses of variety but great, world class examples. Today they had on draft RR Consecration, Perennial Sump, Dieu denver Ciel Peche Nortel just to name a few. They also have an extensive selection of whiskey.

Their food is good, but the reuben is awesome, as are their house made pickles. My biggest gripe is that they are ALWAYS out of something on the menu. I have yet to have an order fulfilled without substitutions. Sometimes they're out of their daily special, even as early as lunchtime, or they might be out of something as commonplace as french fries.

I don't bother to eat here anymore, but I will continue to drink beer here regularly.
