A-The Denver Pearl is situated in a semi-urban area along a nice stretch of South Pearl Street that is home to a bunch of restaurants and a few boutique-type shops. The space inside is surprisingly big with plenty of large tables and a short bar near the front. The decor is more upscale than many small craft operations and the brew equipment, unlike some places, stays somewhat hidden. The crowds were moderate on the Saturday afternoon I visited and consisted mostly of jock types that had presumably filtered in after a day doing dude and dudette things in nearby Washington Park.

Q-The beers were all Denver Pearl and all on tap with one nitro tap for the stout. The brews I tried were not terribly impressive...not awful, either, but in a town with as many choices as Denver, a brewer has to bring something better than this.

Ser-The staff was friendly, prompt, and my bartender poured a decent pint. That being said, they were out of pretzels, which was a major bummer since I was starving.

Sel-The place has nine or ten beers on tap that ranged nicely in style from APA to IPA to Wheat to Stout to Sour. For a smaller brewery, the Denver Pearl managed to offer a seasonally appropriate spread of beers in all shades and styles.

V-My pint was five bucks at 6 pm on a Saturday, which is within reason for this part of town. The barrel-aged offering (a sour of some kind) was more, but again, was in-line with other barrel-aged beers in terms of price.

O-A nice place with lackluster beer.

Love at first sip! Impressive selection, digital beer board very entertaining and informative.
Try the Madagascar! A bit sweet but wonderful.. and the tropical IPA - yummy!

A tad on the pricey side, especially since they tend to leave an inch + of head on the pour.
But overall, a great find.

And check out the new icecream across the street - Sweet Cow!! Wow!

new spot been open just over a month now right on pearl street, a badly need brewery in these parts. not sure how much truth there is to the back story on this place of some young kid with no experience getting cash thrown at him by family for it, but even if thats the case, you have to respect that this place was done right. a professional brewer was hired i assume, as all the beers are pretty solid. safe i think, but thats probably a good place to start. i love the berliner though, a great take on the style. others are just interesting enough to appeal to beer geeks without alienating the newcomer. the space is fun too, huge and full of games, dog friendly, and with some outside seating, albeit limited. prices are surely fair, and the staff, although overworked from the looks of it, stays on top of it. never had to wait for a drink in three or four visits now. the brewhouse is freaking insane, just gorgeous equipment with room to expand if they take off. brilliantly planned too, with a hip bar and lots of cold storage. simple decor fits the neighborhood, and while the place is full of the typical pearl street crowd, its still beer geek friendly in a number of important ways. my only real critique is how loud it is. they really need acoustic treatments on the ceilings. even when its half empty or more, you cant have a conversation without screaming. if this changes, this place may become a go to for a lot of locals, myself included.

Atmosphere - This place is done quite nicely from the decor to the bar it is quite a fun place. Very large inside with lots or room. They allow dogs as well which is fun if you are a dog person. The brewing facility is HUGE for a brand new place. The patio is small, but the open windows make the place very open.

Quality - All the beers we tried we pretty good. The Bourbon Bar was quite boozy and the Berlinerweiss was quite tart so I was a fan.

Service - The bar staff quite often overlapped and every few minutes you were asked by a different person if you were okay. Not a huge issue, but just assign tables.

Selection - for right out of the gates they had lots of choices!

overall - fun place in an area that needed another brewery. hope they do well.
