    There's a New Belgium restaurant/bar waaaaay down terminal B that's solid, if not a little out of the way.
    The Denver Chophouse has a location in Terminal A.
    Rock Bottom is in Terminal C.
    Within the main terminal itself are the Boulder Beer Taphouse (which carries some Avery stuff, too) and Red Rocks BBQ. Both have pretty good taps.
    I'd say you'll be okay with any of those, just go with whatever you're feeling at the time and whatever is closest.

    Like Domingo said, there's a bunch of places with decent beers on tap at the airport. In addition to what was mentioned, the Timberline grill on the C Concourse has some decent taps as well. Avery, Great Divide and I've seen Stone in there from time to time. Lefty's, also on C, has Boulder, Avery, Sam Adams and a few others.

    I work at the airport and have had a few meetings at the Rock Bottom. Their food is pretty solid.

    Hope that helps.

    I seen they have New Belgium place there, do they have a good selection, and how is the food?

    Selection was pretty good for an airport bar, ranger,1554, sunshine, fat tire, blue paddle, hoptoberfest, trippel and abbey. I had the onion soup which was delicious as well as some sort of black saison that was pretty heavily spiced. Damn good experience for an airport.

    Do any of these places do growler fills?

    ...and apparently everything closes by 10. If not earlier. Lot of good my epic layover is doing me!
