Located in the LoDo area of Denver. A very large brick building situated near Coors field and many other beer bars. It is a three story brewpub with a comedy bar downstairs. The location couldn't be better.

Don't worry about getting a place to belly up, as there is ample seating and they even have pool tables upstairs!

I have had the food here many times and have found it to be average brewpub fare. Some odd balls like lamb sliders and the normal burgers and wraps. I had the blue crab cakes this time, and they were very good.

They have also stepped up their game in terms of beers. Along with the normal porters and IPA's they have 3 cask beers on tap at any given time. I had the smoked porter which was GREAT. I also like the seasonals like the TUT, which was a historic beer with wheat and honey. I also enjoyed the wet hop Belgian.

They also donate 50% of their proceeds of their flagship beer.

If this place was in Albany, NY it would be getting straight A's! Great location...good food...good folks...and a great selection of beers that has improved from 4 or 5 years ago. However, too many people are spoiled by the great beer bars and beers in Denver.

I always make a point of visiting Wynkoop when in Denver. With the increased quality of beers, this makes it a top 3 for me when in the area. If you haven't been to Wynkoop in a while, I think it would be worth checking out again.

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.
