Note: rating almost certainly influenced by GABF-week experiences

I knew all about Falling Rock - almost everyone I know who is familiar with it has had more negative things to say than positive. I guess I just don't get that - I thought this place was great.

The outside (front, street-facing) massive patio is a great place to hang. The interior shows some age and grit, but whatever. Yes, the bartenders were as surly as advertised but it was a clear shit show in there.

The tap selection was absolutely fantastic, but it was the Friday of GABF so I'm not sure what it's like on a normal day, but the selection of Crooked Stave, Russian River, and Colorado goodies was beyond sufficient to occupy 5 hours.

Didn't really eat much other than a few baskets of fried belly filler.

A small, tucked-away place with an insane tap list. A medium-sized bar with some tables and walls lined with tons of different bottles and tap handles. The service is good, the food solid and the beer selection outstanding. Very nice. Must visit. Nothing more to say on this one.

Stopped for dinner on first night in town for GABF 2018. What can I say that hasn’t been said already.

Great selection of local brews and options from other corners of the country. Even knocked a couple off rare beers off the bucket list. Burger and fired mushrooms were good to boot.

If you’re an out-of-tower like myself don’t leave without giving this place a visit.

After a tour of Coors Field, my friends and I took a short walk (<5 mins) to Falling Rock Tap House around 3:30pm on a Friday. A few people were seated at the bar area inside, but the weather was perfect so we grabbed a couple of tables out on the patio. Great taplist with an excellent representation of Colorado beers. I started off with a couple of Lagers, Bierstadt Slow Pour Pils and Tivoli Helles, before moving on to an Elevation 8 Second Kölsch. The Pils was the standout of the group and came in a tall, slim Bierstadt-branded glass. Good service, laid back vibe, and quality brews. Easy to see why this place has been a staple of the craft beer scene for such a long time.

Cool vibe for people that dont need their hand held. Pretty no-nonsense type of place. Stopped here for lunch on our way in to Denver. Started with Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig taps....wife is just getting into hoppy beers so Pliny killed her, lol!!! Apparently, we were a week or 2 early for Pliny the Younger on tap. YES, Pliny, the YOUNGER. O

Ordered fried mushrooms to start, they were the bomb. Ordered more IPA off the menu for my wife, and I started digging into their b-wines. They had 20 on tap for Drain Bamage month....EXCELLENT, as BiL!

Ordered lunch, a burger for me (server didnt ask me how I wanted it cooked....always a negative to me) and a veggie burger for my wife (always a positive in my book, happy wife happy life). Both burgers were decent, nothing super memorable though.

Overall, 75ish beers on tap so if you like beer and dont need to be catered to...stop here. Especially if going to a Rockies game.

Cheers!

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
