Had been looking forward to making this visit during my night in downtown Denver. I certainly was not disappointed. Falling Rock has an absolutely amazing tap selection, especially if you are visiting from outside the region. I was able to drink some favorite, Pliny the Elder, as well as some new, and quality, brews such as those from Elysian. I was there during the Rockies game, which was nice, as it blows up afterwards. I am impressed that the "party scene" in Colorado drinks good beer, its not the case here in Georgia, but makes it a little less welcoming atmosphere-wise after the game. Service was ok, at times I felt like I was troubling the bartender to get beers, but not being ignored by any measure. Food was good, but nothing more than quality pub fare for the most part. Good prices, which is a big plus too. I guess in the end, I like a little more subdued beer-centric atmosphere, beyond that, I loved the place.

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
