this is a cool place, certainly a bit more of an original concept for denver than what the previous tenants were doing, but i liked the people at deep draft and they did have a couple of good beers, i am sad to see them go, i dont know the story, but i hope they land on their feet, rent cant be cheap down there, maybe they will reopen elsewhere? in any event, these thirsty monk folks from north carolina are in now, doing mostly belgian styles and with some interesting idea called food flights to showcase some pairings. i will have to go back for that, as i only hung around for a couple of beers my first time in. they have really changed the place, given in a rustic abbey look, albeit kind of cheap, a fake fireplace, picnic tables, lanters, that kind of thing. its sort of medieval and mellow, low light and clean and new, looks and feels good. they are now making most of the beers in house according to the bartender, and they have a huge selection with all the usual beglian suspects and a couple of surprises. i liked their farmhouse ipa, and thought the coffee stout and strawberry belgian blonde were also nice, all very drinkable and seemingly quite professionally done. i was the only one there on a friday afternoon which doesnt bode well, but the service was good! ill be back here for sure, i am one of those old school craft guys that still likes belgian beer more than hazy ipa, so i think these guys are a nice addition to the denver scene, which has been hurting for belgian spots like this since cheeky monk went away. i hope they do well!
