My wife and I stopped here while on our trip to the 2006 GABF. It's in a old brick building downtown. The interior has lots of woodwork and feels like a classic brewpub. The service was friendly and fast. It's fun to be in one of the brewpubs that was key in starting the craft beer revolution. However, I was somewhat let down by the quality of beer. Sure, everything was good, but I suppose my expectations might have been a bit high for such a legendary place. If stopping in, I recommend the Railyard. I think it's the best beer I tasted here and does live up to Wynkoop's reputation.

This is essential Denver. A late 19th Century warehouse preserved right across from Union Station (which has had an unprecedented regeneration in the last five years.) Started in the late 20th Century, Wynkoop played an important role in fostering Denver's innovative and still rapidly growing craft beer culture. Its founder became Mayor and laid many of the plans for the City's incredible revival as a magnet for Millennials (who also like beer and cool cities.) That Mayor is now Governor... so maybe brewers make better leaders than lawyers. At any rate, a great center-of-the-action Vibe at Wynkoop

I'm told there is service on two floors, but I never got past the bar on the first floor. It was packed at lunch and almost as packed at dinner. Probably some twenty taps of their brews and hosted another five Coloradan breweries. I had a flight of three each time I went there. Servers seemed to enjoy their work and the bartender was very knowledgable. My sandwich I would not have again. The menu looked like standard pub-grub.

By now, there are better pubs than Wynkoop. But a lot like Anchor, you want to visit where the pioneers first started in that city.
