Cool place with a laid-back vibe. Industrial appearance with a large dining room/bar. Nice patio upstairs from the dining room. Plenty of games available to play while drinking. The ubiquitous TVs.
A dozen beers on tap. I had their flagship, LowDown IPA and it was excellent. My dessert beer was Whisky Dick, their IPA aged in whiskey barrels. Another nice beer. My wife had a Blood Orange Sour. She liked it so much she tossed down two before I had finished my first beer.
Food was excellent. My wife and I had the hummus appetizer: two different hummus, pitas, carrots, peppers, and cukes. The hummus selections rotate daily. We also split a veggie pizza, one of the best I've had. I continue to be impressed with establishments that have vegan options.
We sat at the bar. The bartender was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful.

Very friendly bartenders and top quality brews. The brewmaster had some 2-3 year old imperial stout he brought out when another offering tapped out. Food was also excellent.

One of the few breweries in Denver with food offered on site. (and one of the better ones)

Vibe is nicely done. Large open area inside, plenty of room to spread out, and a nice large terrace outside just up the stairs from the main dining area.

Quality of the beers was a pretty pleasant surprise. Didn't have much expectations for this place, but I enjoyed both of the beers I tried. Selection was pretty good with 10 beers on tap, styles and variety were pretty much a standard ale lineup.

Service was good. The place was relatively busy, but we were quickly seated and served.

The food like the beer turned out to be a pleasant surprise, our whole group commented about enjoying their meals.

Overall, a nice place to check out if you are looking for food and beer.

Our very first stop when we finally rolled into Denver from Keene, NH !
The food was very creative and very yummy! Selection was good, 8 taps or so, very quality brews. Tasting amazing after two days and almost 2,000 miles.
Service was good and knowledgeable. Offering is samples and making excellent suggestions based on our taste.
The building is very modern, lots of glass but with an old timey bar feel as well.

Very fond of the APA the IPA. This is about half of what I drink on the whole, maybe more. I'm not sure the Belgian efforts have been quite as good but they certainly don't suck.

Only a 3.75 for selection because there isn't a huge selection; OTOH you can only get two beers at Orval, you know? (Three counting the aged Orval) By that I mean, I probably rated selection a little high because I didn't want it to unfairly drag down the whole rating. But there aren't, like, 15 beers on tap here, and of what is on the printed menu (usually somewhere around 8 beers, IIRC) it's not unusual for one to be out.

I think the food is really, really good and not just "good for a brewpub". A personal favorite is the El Blanco pizza, a white pizza (I guess the name sort of gives that away) very heavy on the goat cheese.

Someone on the "New Colorado breweries" thread mentioned the $5.75 charge for a basic beer, and I had forgotten that. I feel that merits "a bit pricey" for the "value" rating.
