Photos: Pub 17, pouring all Colorado beers, opens at the Grand Hyatt Denver

"If you're a beer geek, you'll always find another beer here that you haven't drunk or heard of before, and if you're a foodie, then you can get a really great meal," says Klein, adding that "we're trying to cater to a mix of our own hotel guests and to locals."

And starting in September, Pub 17 will begin rolling out beer- and wine-pairing dinners once a month, and the pub already has brew-related events lined up every day during the Great American Beer Festival, including an opening party hosted by one of Colorado's best breweries.

The restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 1:30 a.m., seven days a week, and you can get a double dose of happy hour, too, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. to close, with $3 drafts, $4 house wines and $5 "hoptails." Ad today, happy hour is all day, plus there's free valet parking at tonight's grand opening.

I spent the lunch hour with Klein yesterday, sipping cocktails and sampling several of Leandro's new dishes, the photos of which are on the following pages.

To briefly respond to some of the comments, the staff of Pub 17 is creating a Colorado-centric menu both for food and beverage tempered with  what our guests are looking for.  If there is a special request for an imported beer or a beer that is not produced regionally, chances are very good that we will be able to accommodate.  In these opening weeks and months, though beer selections in Pub 17 are extensive, they are still evolving.   A series of “nano” beers is being introduced as we continually refine our list of offerings based on what we find you want.


We so appreciate everyone’s thoughts and will continue to monitor them with careful consideration .  We had a great Grand Opening this week. We hope everyone will come by and see Denver’s Newest Brew Pub, Pub 17 on Welton Street, soon.

No "nano" on tap at the opening, unless Dry Dock is considered a "nano".  Nice spot, especially for a hotel bar. Plenty of seating, 3 TVs, none in-your-face. Host and Waitstaff  seem happy to be working there. Lots of potential.


They needed one Import. :-)
