The second floor is the home of Wynkoop Billiards with 22 pool tables, 2 private pool rooms, several dart lanes and a bar serving all of the same refreshing beers you'll find downstairs. We hauled the backbar from across the creek where it was used in the original tasting room of the old Tivoli Brewery. Our 22 pool tables and 2 private pool rooms may be reserved with advanced notice.

A beer journalist turned beer evangelist, Marty's our brewery frontman and eagerly serves as our chief promoter, media tickler and mojo developer. He thinks great beer and a job you love are crucial ingredients for a happy life. He believes craft brewers are cultural counterparts of Johnny Cash and the Ramones. He writes left and drinks right. A working musician and songwriter, his most recent composition is entitled “The Power of Positive Drinking.” Reach Marty at firstname.lastname@example.org
C. Andrew Brown (Andy to his friends) got into brewing the way many professional craft brewers become interested in beer, homebrewing at the young age of 20. The natural question followed: "How can I make this hobby into a career?" Brewing school came next as well as stints at breweries across the front range of Colorado and his home state of Maine.
Andy has been professionally brewing award-winning beers for over ten years and guides the Wynkoop into a promising and beery future. When he's not brewing, Andy creates fine small-batch music by playing bass with several local groups, and he builds custom motorcycles and hot rods in his garage.

Since our opening in 1988, our food has been as popular as our house-made beers.
It's no wonder. We serve freshly prepared, beer-inspired comfort food that reflects our Colorado and Rocky Mountain West heritage, along with hearty servings of the best English, American and Southwestern fare.
We also craft our elevated pub cuisine with the same care, concern and quality ingredients as our small-batch beer. Our dishes are made with an array of locally sourced ingredients, from produce and game meats to everyday staples.

This past Monday (8-29-11) we conducted the first hop "harvest" in downtown Denver in a long, long time.
For the fresh hops we used in the first 20-bbl. batch of Belgorado (our wet-hopped, all-Colorado ingredients, Belgian-style pale ale) we trucked in (okay, vanned in) 50 heavy-with-hops vines from Colorado's own Misty Mountain Hops.
After draping the vines over the railing of the Wynkoop Brewing Co. patio, our staff hand picked the hops from the vines. It made for a very novel way to get ultra-fresh hops into a batch of beer. The aroma on the patio was wonderful! A few of us felt like our eyes might've been burning. Maybe it was just the glorious sight of so much humulus lupulus there at our feet.
The comments from folks walking by during our picking party were especially cool. "That's what hops look like?" Yes it is. A few of our customers (and Dick Kreck, the Denver Post's famed beer scribe) joined in to pick a few with us. It was great fun. A true hoppening.
We ended up with about 60 pounds of just-picked Chinook hops. These glorious cones were used in the beer that afternoon.The leftover vines and leaves? Composted in our composting setup to return to the soil.
We brew a second batch of Belgorado next week, this time with fresh hops flown in from Leroux Creek Farms near Hotchkiss, CO.
On September 15 the first batch of Belgorado starts flowing, be there for the first glasses.
On December 3 from 1-4:30 PMwe're presenting our third annual Parade of Darks. This beer-powered holiday fundraiser will present over 50 of the best beers from Colorado, the US and Belgium in the amber to opaque categories.
The beer list includes holiday seasonal beers, amber ales, porters, stouts, barley wines, Belgian beers, sour beers and more from the nation's best and biggest-hearted breweries. These breweries are donating their beer to the event.
100% of all ticket sales for the Parade of Darks go to Metro CareRing, a downtown Denver food pantry that is experiencing record demand for its services in 2011.
Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased at ticketalternative.com. Tickets are $30 the day of the event. Admission will be limited to 300 attendees. We will also present a silent auction for Metro CareRing on the day of the event. UPDATED: brewery & beer list.
With this event we aim to hip local beer lovers to the best dark-hued beers, and then hand Metro CareRing a hefty check and enjoy some "better to give than receive" holiday pleasure. Please come and help us in this cause.
For details on Metro CareRing's efforts visit www.metrocarering.org.
Last year's event raised over $8,000 and we hope to pass that mark for 2011.
