Brewery Bar II

150 Kalamath St. Denver, CO 80223 | Southwest Denver | 303-893-0971

Location Description:

The original Brewery Bar was a beer-soaked neighborhood watering hole that took up residence in the old Tivoli brewery during the Eisenhower administration and moved to Kalamath while Nixon was still in office. Today, if you've got a hankering for honest Colorado Mexican cuisine, you'll be right at home among the road crews, maudlin-drunk insurance salesmen and local armchair quarterbacks who frequent Brew II. The menu is all "Mexican," with quotes -- greasy, cheesy, hot, sloppy, cheap and good.
