This Rock Bottom location is huge and spacious. Located on busy 16th Street, we decided to stop by for a couple of drinks before heading to a Denver Nuggets game.

The place was packed, which is to be expected at 5 PM on a Friday. Tons of TV's all over the place that showcased March Madness games.

Rock Bottom offered about 15 drafts with a great deal of styles represented. They had a Barleywine, Porter, IPA, Kolsch, Wheat, Oatmeal & Milk Stouts, German Alt, Irish Red, Pilsner, Dubbel, etc. They also had two cask beers too.

Probably the best Rock Bottom that I've been to and I would say this place is a viable option for some craft beers if you're the area (the location is great and it's easy to find), but there is something about the sterile atmosphere that detracts from the overall experience for me.

I came here on game-day, which was overcrowded and it was hard to find a seat but that's to be expected just about everywhere so it will not factor into my rating here. There was a great selection and the prices were decent. I got the excellent Hair of the Tongue Imperial IPA and it was delicious! I in fact didn't know the ABV until I decided to check on here and it was a whopping 10.5%abv, so the beer was very well executed. The food was awesome too, we got some chicken strips that were high quality and very fresh. I would definitely recommend this great place for their selection, atmosphere, and quality. Cheers.

For 16th street this was a decent blend of craft beer and inexpensive enough food.

The beer was fine, but the food was terrible. I've stopped going to Rock Bottom because my food is never cooked properly, always overcooked. Although the selection of both beer and food are good, they don't know how to cook it.

Also, we had to wait long periods of time to order, receive drinks, and ultimately food as well.

I've been here twice, and won't go back.

Larger place, with a quality and comfortable feel. Nice out door seating and drinking area, as well a multiple bar areas in side. Didnt realize it was a chain upon visiting and staying a while, so thats gotta be a good thing.

Decent place for a bite or quality draft. On the less seedy and touristy side of 16th. Not a must visit destination, but served the purpose of an easy and enjoyable enough brew stop, upon getting to downtown Denver. More interesting spots were sought out afterwords
