I'll preface this by saying I had one mission coming here... to drink beer. I had already eaten prior to my arrival so the only food I had was in the form of appetizers, hot buffalo wings and chicken fingers. Both were slightly above average for bar food. So take my rating on the food for what it is.

Overall, I really dug this place and will definitely make it back whenever I head to Denver, which is usually 1-2 times/year. I went with a friend who recently relocated to Denver and he's going to make it a mainstay for him.

The choice of beers is rather large, and the quality of that choice is phenomenal. I read some reviews online prior to going here and saw some negative things said about some of the staff and for what it's worth, the experience I had with the staff was great. The bartender was knowledgable and spent quite a bit of time shootin the shit with us out-of-towners about beer as well as other topics. Customers were attended to promptly and questions about beer were answered without being arrogant.

Price is about what you'd expect from a beer bar.

I highly recommend a visit to Falling Rock, and I'll certainly be back.

Pliny the elder on tap, awesome burgers, and onion rings. What more do you need!

Love the beer selection there, usually have really good beers there, as well has some hard to find beers, they usually have Pliny on tap, or at least something from Russian River. Service isn't the best and the food is mediocre at best, basic bar food. The main reason to go is for the beer, they have a great list of taps, and bottles/cans.

Pros: had Pliny the elder on tap outside of California. That was a nice surprise.
Cons: had Pliny the younger on tap last weekend and next weekend but I'm missing both because I'm only here for 2 days

OK, I'll admit, I went here expecting to hate this place. But, surprise, I ended up having a good time here during my Denver beer tour.

Place is smaller than I expected, but was able to snag a seat at the long bar. Service was great, the bartender was friendly enough and really hustled to service the crowd - able to answer a quick question or two and crack a smile as well (a rarity in beer geek bars nowadays). Of course, the selection is pretty impressive.

Yes, there are lot of insufferable beer geeks here, but I managed to avoid beer discussions with them.

Enjoyed a RR Blind Pig and a local IPA that was quite tasty. Had a cup of green chili that was surprisingly good too.

Finally - a beer bar that lives up to the hype.

I was a little disappointed after reading all the reviews. It's a cool beer bar for sure, nice patio as well. The service wasn't good at all. Their "cellar" list hasn't been updated since 9/15. Still a cool place to stop in Denver but nothing mind blowing b
