    Getting loaded on beers? Then the Loaded Tots topped with cheddar cheese sauce, bacon, cilantro, red onion, & lime crema are a must!

    Terrific beer selection so stop by if your goal is to sample different beers. Otherwise, the 80s glam metal they blast, meh food and sports bar aesthetic make it feel outdated.

    Head to the patio for outdoor seating. It's covered, and a much better atmosphere than inside, which I've described as "cafeteria like."

    If you have a Southwest rapid rewards acct, I'd check out the dining rapid rewards program. RFD is on the list of participating restaurants. So you can get awesome beers and earn points all at once!

    They get you with Dale's Pale Ale on tap, but once you're more likely to drown in tourists than sudsy Colorado beer.

    Not a bad happy hour from 4-8. They tweet the special drafts of the day for $4. Service slow so order another one when a drink is delivered. Fish tacos surprisingly delicious for the east coast!

    This place is large and noisy with poor service. They charge for samples. They should offer half of the sample size as a taster - gratis - like any other place does!

    I tried 2 beers new to me; Dogfish head and anderson Valley. The 1st is a little bitter which I like. And the 2nd is somewhat sweet and easy to drink, goes better with fish.
