Real Ale in Denver

For some years, I’ve heard about Pint’s in Denver. Last week, we had the pleasure of stopping by the pub enjoyed a meal and had a couple of drinks. Although I know relatively little about ale, my husband does! He remarked, on tasting his first pint of Lancer IPA ,“This is the best pint of ale I’ve had in America.” He followed with a pint of Dark Star Ale, which he said was typical of the darker ales found in Northern England. Both are great casked-conditioned real ales, but the Lancer was more to his taste. He enjoyed both with English style bangers and mash.

The following is quoted from Pint’s Pub website.
“Welcome to Pint's Pub, a traditional British brew pub that strives to be your "local" regardless of your locale.
Here at Pint's, you'll find the charm and personality of the "local", a place that serves as a crossroads for society, where good beer , freshly prepared good food and as importantly, good conversation are on the bill of fare.
Please be aware that despite our corner pub ambiance, Pint's is nationally famed for two world class features. We are brewers of authentic traditional British "cask conditioned" or "live ales". These hand crafted ales, served from the hand pumps are rarely found in the U.S.
Additionally exceptional, in fact unique, is our offering of Single Malt Whisky.
We are proud to be the purveyor of the largest selection of single malt whisky this side of Edinburgh, Scotland.
So, settle with a pint, a wee dram or some pub grub, read the London Times (you’ll find it by the front door) or chat with a neighbor. You’re among friends!”
