Contemporary food with interesting beers in an artsy North Denver rehab building. Deck on the east side lhas a great view looking out over downtown. Another deck in back, two big rooms one with bar and another with the open kitchen. Industrial and kitchen artifacts used in the decor. Wall of old dial phones.

Nine taps when visited: Odell IPA, Fullers London Pride, Twisted Pine Amber, Great Divide Samurai and Collette, Breckenridge Agave Wheat, Left Hand Milk Stout, Trummer Pils, and some bottles. Prices $5 or $6 for a pint.

Food is quite interesting. Variety of roasted root vegetables figure in the menu. Small plates, salads, soups, and fancier entrees. Beef, halibut, and "Seared Columbian Arepas." Lamb sliders were good. Cheddar cheese flight.

Really an intriguing place with a more lively, well-heeled crowd in a part of Denver that is full of interesting new development and historic renovations. Beers are a good selection of Colorado classics. If you enjoy modern American food it's worth a visit. Or just walk around the neighborhood and stop in for a brew. Not far from downtown but a long ways from the endless Denver sports bar routine.

A great little place only a short walk from downtown. It is a walk though, but not bad, and on the way back you can visit Denver Brewing and Prost.

They source a ton of food locally and sustainably here. Prices are fair, and earlier in the evening we had our two year old with us.

The craft beer selection is smaller than some, but still has several taps and bottles. All craft, and a very good selection. Higher end craft beers.
A great place to check out! (Make a reservation)
