I can't believe I forgot to add my reviews of the brewpubs in Denver I visited! So, from my notes:

Wynkoop Brewerey is in an area of Denver called LoDo (for Lower Downtown). My cousin and I had stopped in on a Friday afternoon. We had heard the owner, now Denver Mayor, John Hickenlooper at the National Homebrew Conference, and were impressed with his nerve in putting a brewpub in a deserted area of town. Wynkoop and Hickenlooper were responsible for the revitilization of the LoDo area, and, frankly, deserve the praise. The bar area is huge, and there is a dazzling array of beers. I had a blond ale and a stout. We met up with Peter, from Australia, who was taking a five week vacation in the UK and the United States, and he was also attending the conference. We talked homebrewing while sipping some darn tasty beers. We could have spent the afternoon there, but wanted to hit a couple more pubs.

Cool place in Downtown Denver. In a big old historic building right near Union Station. I really liked the layout, and just walking around the place.

Quality was OK, but nothing special. It's pretty cool that this place is one of the original micro breweries in Denver / Colorado. But the two beers I tried were just a notch or two above average.

Service was pleasant enough. But she was not only slow, but also forgot part of our order.

Selection was good. Wynkoop not only had quite a few of their own beers on tap, but they also had a handful of guest brews.

Food was not bad, but kind of forgettable.

Overall? Eh... not bad, but not great. I am glad I checked this place out, but I won't be in a rush to return anytime soon.
