Denver ’s first brewpub remains one of the city’s favorites year after year. At the corner of 18th and Wynkoop Streets, the Wynkoop was one of the pioneer businesses in transforming the LoDo neighborhood. One of the co-founders of the Wynkoop is John Hickenlooper, now Denver’s mayor.
The brewery offers free tours every Saturday to see their signature line of beers being made on-site. On the 1st floor of this historic mercantile building is the main bar, restaurant, and patio seating. The 2nd floor has a bar, 22 pool tables, and a few dart lanes.
