Denver's five best very late-night meals near the Great American Beer Fest

Thousands of beers will be pouring this weekend at the Great American Beer Festival, but the event is a little short on food. Inside the Colorado Convention Center, you're limited to concessions and pretzel necklaces, and while food trucks are a welcome addition to this year's festivities, they'll only be on location until 10 p.m. -- which is also when each session ends.

If you stumble out of the GABF looking for a spot where you can line your stomach to prepare it for more drinking, here are the five best late-night menus in the vicinity:

5. My Brother's Bar Slightly off the beaten path, this iconic Denver bar serves a massive menu of burgers, sandwiches and fried accoutrements until 2 a.m. every day of the week. Which makes it a good bet if you're willing to take a short detour out of the heart of downtown, and an excellent place to end the night, taking down one last pint and loading up on something griddled and greasy before you turn in to sleep off the tipsy.

4. Wazee Supper Club Pizza may just be our favorite drunk food ever, and the Wazee provides a perfect (and nearby) setting to indulge that craving. This dark, secluded spot serves up a board of pies -- plus burgers, salads and appetizers -- until 2 a.m. And there's a tap full of beers that can be bought by the pitcher.

3. Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs Chances are good you might be heading to one of the crowded bars in the Ballpark neighborhood, anyway, which makes a stop at Biker Jim's for a sausage a no-brainer. This joint grills hot dogs made from elk, pheasant and rattlesnake, loaded up with caramelized onions and cream cheese. There are plenty of tables for feasting, but both the nearby Great Divide taproom and Star Bar also allow you to bring in food. Jim's is open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

2. Row 14 Since coming on at the beginning of August, executive chef Jensen Cummings has really revamped the Row 14 late-night menu, adding a bunch of snacks to the board that's available at happy-hour pricing from 10 p.m. until midnight. And in addition to the regular list, Cummings whips up a special, not-so-secret menu of "stoner food" for late-night cravings -- whether MMJ or beer-induced. This spot also happens to be across from the Colorado Convention Center.

1. Euclid Hall Euclid Hall has one of our favorite menus in town, and we're happy to post up at a table here at any time of the day to chow down on chicken and waffles, poutine, sausages and bone marrow. The restaurant landed our Best Late Night Menu award in the Best of Denver 2011 because that entire board is available until 1 a.m. on weeknights and 2 a.m. on weekends. Added bonus for GABF revelers: this restaurant has geeky beers on tap and in bottle that are worth a stop in and of themselves.

Honorable mentions go to Two-Fisted Mario's, Sushi Sasa and Sam's No. 3.
