Located on the edge of Denver's RINO District, on the second floor of the Rackhouse Restaurant, Bierstadt is the home of some incredible rendition of German lager. While there is a rather sports pub vibe here, you can easily forget it once you get a taste of their "Slow Por Pils." Add to that, some succulent schnitzel, and you are in for a pleasant experience - like a trip to Munich. They are a short walk from Ratio and Odell as well; this makes for a sweet pub crawl.

Eh, well, the "vibe" is kind of sterile since it's tied to a restaurant. But, it's not bad. A touch loud and echo-y. So, on to quality: A+ German style beers. Haven't had a sub-A beer yet. Best German beers I've had in the US. Selection is not broad (no IPAs, pastry stouts, or sours), but that ain't a bad thing. If you want excellent German style beer--this is the place.

This is a cool place to visit. It's a joint building with C Squared ciders. There is extra space for concerts and events. They usually only have 3-5 beers available, all lagers. But they quality is very high. The flagship beer is the slow-pour Pils, and it may be one of the best beers made in Colorado. Cool to see a place making high-quality German-style lagers thrive in this current environment.

Bierstadt Lagerhaus is the best brewery in America. There. I said it.

Sharing a large industrial space with a cidery and a pub, Bierstadt is located in Denver’s trendy River North district.

They do what the name suggests. They make lagers and they’re some of the best I’ve ever had. I tried four...the Pils, Helles, Dunkel, and a seasonal Rauchbier, and each was easily among the best examples of its respective style I’ve ever tasted.

There’s an array of snacks and sandwiches available, as well as a few larger plates. I had a giant bag of freshly fried chicharrones and dip. $4.

Let’s talk price. This place is shockingly inexpensive for the high quality. .3L glasses of the Slow Pour Pils are $4. .5L mugs of Helles are $5, and .5L Dunkel is $6. Seasonals were $7, with the aforementioned Rauchbier and a Maibock on while I was there.

Beer to go is perhaps even more insanely affordable. 32oz crowlers of Pils and Helles are $5, while the Dunkel is $6. Or get all three for $15 flat.

I don’t know what else to say. If you enjoy lager, at all, this place is heaven.
