I'd never heard of the place until I saw it on BA. In kind of an odd spot, so it's easy to never know it exists until you look for it!
Looks very much like a cross between a British pub and a German beerhall.
Wood and "old memorabilia" style decor. Has a long bar with tankards hanging a lot like a German hall does. 6-7 taps are in the back with a variety of brews. It's a little crowded, but that's not a bad thing. Very laid back atmosphere make this place a great hang-out. The layout seems like it makes it a little more packed in than it should've been, though.
On to the beer, right? The night we were there, they had Justice and Man Beer (2 IPA's using different hops), an Amber, a Stout, a Dunkel-Weiss, a Pils, an English Brown, a Saison, a hoppy Barleywine, a pumpkin ale, and a peppermint spiced Winter Warmer called "Yule Fuel." We split all but the Amber, Pils, Man Beer, and Brown. Every beer we had was great, too. The Yule Fuel was shockingly the favorite just because it was so unusual. It might be a little too sweet for some, but it was so different it'll grow on you. I plan on going back for a growler in the next few weeks.
Food's good. Kobe burgers are only $1 more than normal ones and the fish and chips are shockingly REALLY good. Instead of giving you overpriced Gordon's fillets, the fish tastes fresh and is only lightly breaded. It's still pub food, but it's a good version of it.
Service was good, although the waitress seemed very concerned that we wouldn't like some of the beers. I think she was just likely used to macro drinkers sending things back! Either way, it's appreciated that someone offers you a free sample to try regardless of how much of a beer fan you might be.
It's not really the cheapest of places to spend an evening, but with GREAT beer and solid enough morsels, I think I might have a new back up to the downtown beer hubs.

EDIT: So, a whopping 10 years later the B&B has more or less morphed into my go-to pub and my home away from home. I'm still a huge fan of the food (burgers and brunch being my faves) and their ESB is my favorite everyday beer in Colorado. The main change to their setup is that they now have upwards of 40 guest taps. Not just random craft taps either. We're talking stuff from La Cumbre, 3F, Hanssens, Hill Farmstead, BFM, Uerige, Mahr's, etc. They also have their own line-up in bottles now, too. Still want more? They have a whiskey menu as deep as any and a special "unicorn" menu that is borderline unmatched. They have a zany aged beer list with immaculately stored beers, too. I don't mess with scores, but the B&B would probably be pretty close to a 5 for me.

Stopped in for lunch. They had seven of their own beer on tap, and a guest tap list of Belgians, German beers, and some nice regional beers.

Their beers were all pretty solid, and with more time, would've had a few more glasses of theirs. By solid I mean they were tasty representations of the style within the style. No top notch offerings, but above average quality and flavor in all beers.

The service was on point, quite friendly, and at an acceptable level. The food was nice and plentiful, if on the high side of normal price for lunch. The house beers were nicely priced, the fine guest offerings also tended towards the higher price range, however.

There is a high probability we will return to this place next opportunity we get.

Funky old British Pub style place. Really dark inside, but also a really lively crowd. Seems like it's kinda stuck in the 70's/80's, but I liked it.

Quality of their beers were pretty good. Neither were great, but both I tried were solid.

Service was quite good. It was happening on Saturday night here, but they got us a table quickly, and our server was friendly and prompt.

Selection was great. Quite of few of their own beers, (10 or so) plus another 25+ guest brews. So lots to choose from.

Food was quite tasty, and definitely much better than your average pub.

Overall, a very cool and fun old school place. Would visit often if I lived in the area.

I had a pitcher of the Man beer after a long flight. Very laid back atmosphere and it seemed like a drinker's quiet hangout. I would highly recommend it.
