A word from Wynkoop Brewing Company
Welcome to the place where LoDo began. In 1988, a band of urban pioneers, notably among them Colorado Governor, John Hickenlooper, took a shine to an unlikely building at the corner of 18th and Wynkoop. They wanted to brew beer and foster community. The place and the pioneers were an immediate success. The small-batch beers and the hearty fare replicated an authentic public house. Today, we are honored to be known as a legend. We work equally hard to respect our heritage and to remain relevant in our beautiful Denver home.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I generally dont write reviews but I wanted Wynkoop to know about our experience. First, our server was good and friendly. However, the food was below average. I ordered the shrimp tacos and the shrimp was undercooked, I sent it back and the new plate was ok. My husband ordered the meatloaf which was mushy and not very fresh tasting. After finishing my Orchard Peach beer, I discovered a thick layer of white goo at the bottom of my glass. The restaurant/bar itself is nice and has a great, fun atmosphere but the food will make us not go back."

  • "We planned a group of 14 people for late lunch on a Saturday, They didn't have the tables ready for our group till 15 minutes after we showed up on time for the reservation. Waitress was overwhelmed by the number of tables she had to serve in her section and no one else on the staff would help her out with the beer and food service. A simple lunch turned into an 1 hr 45 min affair, most of the time waiting for beer orders to be delivered to our table, that we saw sitting on the bar waiting for her to pick them up. We did love the rail yard beer."

  • "A good place before the game since it is so close (4 blocks). Unfortunately, we had a neighboring table with unruly children which was rather unpleasant. The menu is kind of limited. It is a brewpub so beer is limited to theirs."

  • "I met some family and friends for dinner on July 2nd. The food was not up to its usual standards and the service was extremely slow. Very disappointed as this used to be one of my favorite places to bring out of town guests."

  • "Group of 6. Waitress was amazing. Beer was delicious (listen to what she recommends!) Food was surprisingly good. Would absolutely recommend this place to others and will dine here again when I'm in the area."

  • "We heard Wynkoop was the first microbrew in Colorado/Denver, so we wanted to check it out. Our group was looking for a local spot with local beer and food, but after looking at the menu (limited, with mostly bar-grub) we decided just to grab a round of drinks and find another place to eat. Our waiter was super-friendly, though."

  • "We arrived at 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Only three of us. The service was so slow, took for ever to even get a beer and a glass of water. The dividing wall at the end of our booth was dusty & dirty. The carpeting to the downstairs bathroom was very dirty. Once we finally got our food...our beers were gone by the time it arrived, it was okay."

  • "The food was wonderful but the service was lacking for a Monday afternoon. The restaurant was pretty empty and our waitress was only there a few times. It took 20 minutes just to get our order put in. My husband had to find her and let her know we were ready to order. My family was in from out of town and I thought we would show them a different type of brewery with good good. They were impressed with the beer and food, just not our service."

  • "We loved the food and the beer of course! But first no one came and after I asked the host he brought us water. Then another server came to take our drink order. The we finally got our real server and it was fine but the she disappeared when we wanted the bill. But food was really good. Asian wings! Lamb sandwich! Plus the beers are great. B3K! But maybe sit at the bar? "

  • "In looking for a dining spot that was not outrageously expensive and was unique to Denver, Wynkoop Brewing Company was perfect. Great unique dishes and local brews. Our server Randy was friendly and knowledgeable in helping us order food and brews! "

  • "Our group went there to eat because of the reputation for fried chicken. That is no longer on the menu. The chicken that is there was dry. The bratwurst sandwich was not very good. The burgers are pretty good. At this point, I think the main reason to go there is for the beer and the entertainment but not the food. We won't go back as a family group to eat there. The service was very good! Overall, I think it says a lot about their restaurant when it was empty even after a Rockies baseball game next door."

  • "I was very happy to find a restaurant near Coors field that takes reservations on game day. I had a tight schedule and needed to make sure I was not gulping my food to avoid being late. We had a great lunch and no problems. The food was very good and the staff were friendly and attentive."

  • "We went here for dinner on a Friday night. I made a reservation but was surprised that there was still no wait and we probably could've gotten seated right away without one. The beers we tried were good, as was the food. Service was quick and attentive. It was definitely a good experience for our first time trying a brewery in Denver. We would come back."

  • "I went to Wynkoop on Rockies opening day. That was my mistake. However, the host seating us in a closed section was his mistake. We had to return to the host stand to request service and then another host approached our table and somewhat snidely asked if we had seated ourselves. We told her we had not, indicated who had, and she persisted with her issues about the section being closed. WE offered to move and she relented and said a server would be right there. It became extremely loud in there and became challenging to hear each other. Our food was pretty good but nothing I couldn't find elsewhere. Overall, it was "meh"."

  • "We made reservations the day before knowing Opening day was going to be crazy busy everywhere. We were glad we did , we waited 10 minutes inline and then another 5 minutes to be seated. Had we not had reservations I hear it was an hour wait. They were using a condensed mention, understandable. We tried the Cheese burger with regular fries and the Bison hot dog with sweet potato fries. Everything was cooked to order which was amazing givin Opening day. Everything tasted good highly recommend the sweet potato fries great flavor. The Bison dog was more like a Kosher dog, I expected more bison flavor, it was good just not what I expected. Over all we were glad we spent our time at the Wynkoop Brewery on Opening Day."

  • "This was a great place for Rockies Opening day. The menu was set (which I understand, but was kind of disappointed) and most of their options were very good."

  • "My husband and I visited Wynkoop this weekend to celebrate his upcoming birthday. Our food was great and our service was amazing! At the end of our meal we ordered a dessert to take home and even though we hadn't mentioned that it was almost my husband's birthday our sever gave us the dessert for free. What a great, unexpected surprise. We will absolutely be returning here in the future!"

  • "Food was better than expected - mussels were delicious, wings very good, calamari very good. Only gripe - and this is a big reason we chose to dine there - they advertise a gluten-free menu, but it is not."

  • "Wynkoop has decent beer and decent bar food, good for a cheap dinner downtown."

  • "Wynkoop never fails to please. Because of the friendly, attentive waiter's recommendation, I tried the buffalo meatloaf, which was incredibly tasty. After washing it down with a sampler of beer, I was wonderfully happy and left Wynkoop fully satisfied. From the service to the food to the space, the entire experience was great, and I can't recommend Wynkoop enough."

  • "Went before a concert......food was good but a bit slow to come out. Server was friendly but a bit scattered. Beer is always excellent."

  • "Food was good. Service was great. Parking was a pain."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This Restaurant used to be good, although their service has always been slow. They have cut down their menu to only a few items that are neither creative nor very good. Wound up having the cold mushy fish and chips. The arugula salad was not edible. Really sorry that we took our guests there. Won't EVER go back."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "It took a very long time for the food to be delivered from the kitchen. We were told multiple times that the food was on it's way, but it took nearly 45 minutes after ordering to actually see food on the table. Don't know who was at fault - server or kitchen."

  • "We were very pleased with Wynkoop. I know that New Years can be very busy but we were very well taken care of. The food was delicious and the beer was amazing! We will definitely be back again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "They have reduced the menu. The portions are still large. The food used to be amazing, but with the menu change the food quality has declined. We had to flag down people get service even though the restaurant was not packed. Overall, I don't think I will be back. For the price, the quality is not there..."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "service was super slow and we were hungry. They were out of their special beers and food was mediocre. To finish it up, we paid $25 to fill a growler (which is very expensive) and it was only filled 2/3 (which we only saw at home as the glass was dark) Overall, it was an interesting experience and I am sure it is a lot of fun with all the pool tables and games, but not sure we will be going back to fast."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "The service was lousy; server in a bad mood. I mistakenly left my credit card there and when I went back to get it a few minutes later they claimed they did not have it! I cannot prove it, but believe the server was playing a trick on me."

  • "I am a great fan of micro-brews and beer tours. The tour was amazingly insightful. We had lunch before the tour and the bar-service was spot on with recommendations from the servers all the way. I was able to enjoy this bar even at 6 months pregnant. The aroma of the beers were so clear that I could almost taste them."

  • "Wynkoop is an iconic establishment opened in part by Governor Hickenlooper several years back. The beer selection is varied in styles, and the "pulled" IPA was especially good. Prices are very reasonable, and while the service was a bit slow, it must be mentioned that our waitress had numerous tables; service was not poor, but simply not efficient at times. I think that the bar is the place to be. That being said, do not expect a quiet table as Wynkoop is not conducive to that; I think that this is a great hang for friends to get together and have a beer; a wonderful Colorado bar, a fairly good restaurant."

  • "Honestly, the place needs a good cleaning/scrubbing was my first reaction. Just seemed worn out. Food was decent, nothing to write home about. Pork Schnitzel was cooked too well done, red cabbage was fair, but no potato/spaetzel served with the dish - disappointing. Would not go back, nor would I recommend this place for anything other than a quick appetizer and maybe a beer. Why do waiters leave menus laying on the floor?"

  • "Flat-iron steak was ordered medium, came rare-- only the outside was cooked, red in the middle, So if you like your steaks rare, rare, this is the place for you. Menu said it came with grilled asparagus, they didn't arrive with the meal. I had to ask the server where were the asparagus. She gave some lame excuse about changing the vegetable, but it didn't arrive with any vegetable. She did bring me some charred asparagus, though, later, The sweet potato side was under cooked chunks. Our waiter was not engaged at all, just wanted to get to the next table. I was having a conversation with him and he answered as he was walking off. The place was packed on a Saturday night, so I guess it doesn't matter what kind of service or food you offer."

  • "I haven't been to Denver in three years and the last time I was here, Wyncoop was a favorite spot. It had great food and great beer. And while the beer is still fabulous, the food is terrible. The gastropub fare is gone and has been replaced by...I don't know now to describe it....horrible. I will still go there for the beer, but will go somewhere else for food."
