John Hickenlooper, the current Colorado governor, founded Wynkoop back in 1988 as part of his efforts to revitalize the LoDo neighborhood. It’s kept its cool even in the wake of the local brewery boom. An improv comedy theater in the basement and 22 billiards tables upstairs are crowd-pleasing features, but Wynkoop also caters to the “Hoppy Yogis.” They turn up on Monday nights for yoga followed by tastings and tours. Wynkoop even makes a special beer in support of National Yoga month. The standard roster includes ColoRojo, Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout, and Cowtown Milk Stout. Afternoon tours are available Tuesdays through Saturdays.

This place is the birth of the Great American Beer Festival, and boy do they show off the diversity of their brews. The staff was friendly and made great recommendations. More than just beer, they also have in house vodka infusions. I would recommend the Black Pepper Vodka in a Bloody Mary....

Busy all week long, the Wynkoop is a great place to meet friends for casual conversation over a pint (or two, or three). It's a local landmark as the oldest brewpub in town, standing for the beginning of Colorado's nationally-known reputation as one of the best states to sample microbrews today. Though equipped with a full menu, the food is nothing to brag about; beer is really the thing to try here. Don't miss the Railyard Ale or Patty's Chile Beer - yes, the latter is spicy, but utterly delicious.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

Great place to hang out in downtown! Good atmosphere with great beer selection (well, it's in Colorado!). Also it's a popular place to host a party or a function. Hip and fun place to have a great time. Recommended!

I ended up here with a post-rehearsal-dinner group of people at a friend's wedding, just for some drinks and to get everyone together before the wedding. What a neat space. With dozens and dozens of craft brews (something Colorado is obviously known for) and amazing servers, Wynkoop quickly became my new favorite beer hall. Come for the ample televisions, if you're interested in watching whatever game is on, or create a game of your own with provided and (I believe) free access to billiards, darts and shuffleboard.

If you enjoy high quality beer and want to hang out with locals in Denver, the Wynkoop Brewery is the place to do it. When we visited they had an enjoyable mix of micro-brews to try and a run of the mill pub menu. The food is decent but nothing to write home about. Go for the beer and to get a sense of the real Denver.

Denver's first and largest brewpub was founded by former Denver mayor and current Colorado governor John Hickenlooper. It's a huge fun place, with restaurant service on the ground floor a bar and pool hall upstairs. Count on a big mixed crowd pretty much every night, from frat boys to beer geeks, bachelorette parties to business mixers. The food is okay, but the beer's the real standout, with a dozen-plus microbrews on tap at any given time, all good to outstanding. ("Microbrew" is a relative term though--last year Wynkoop's churned out over 1600 barrels of beer, or about 50,000 gallons.) Brewery tours are offered most Saturdays between 1 to 5pm; call ahead as the brewmasters aren't always around.
