"No Crap On Tap" is the motto at Falling Rock and they live up to it. There's no crap in bottles either. Located in Denver's LoDo district at 1919 Blake St., Falling Rock serves up a wide variety of American and International Craft Beers including a nice selection of Belgians.

Atmosphere
The atmosphere is Colorado crunchy, bordering on grunge. If that turns you off, you might consider other places. To me it makes for a comfortable pub ambiance (if that word even applies to pubs). The main seating area includes a bar all the way down one side and 8-10 booths in the center. On the opposite side from the bar is an area for bands to set up and also a couch, coffee table and a few nice, comfy overstuffed chairs. Downstairs is pool and darts. There is also seating outdoors when the weather is good.

Service
Normally the service is excellent however when the place is overflowing, like at GABF, it's nearly impossible to get served. Bellying up to the bar is your best bet.

Beer Selection
The lineup is always in a state of flux but it's always extensive and of the highest quality (how many places that you know of have La Trappe Quadrupel on tap). About half the beers are US microbrews and about half of those are from Colorado. Most of the rest are from Belgium but all the major beer-making countries are represented. I believe that the list includes about 70ish beers on tap and about that same number in bottles.

Food
The food is typical pub faire: burgers, fries, wings, pizza and subs. Nothing special but very tasty, if not the healthiest food in Denver.

Summary
If it's good beer you're after and you aren't looking for anything fancy, this is your spot. The food is good, the atmosphere is comfy, the location is convenient and the beer selection is hard to beat. Check it out.

Great beer, sure. But when the help alway acts like pricks, it hard to give a perfect score. I like the grungy atmosphere. Food was tastey the one time I ate there. Tacos as I remember it. Huge portion.
