Visited Prost about 15 minutes before last call :(
Really nice german lagers/ales - I went for a massive mug of maibock, which certainly put a smile on my face. Nice patio overlooking the city. The interior is a tribute to a bavarian beer hall. Enjoyed playing large-format jenga.
I could have spent a few hours here, but unfortunately closing time was before sunset on Sunday.

I had the dunkelweiss and needed to add chicory and toffee to make it anywhere near a decent beer. It does not have any taste at all. Literally none. This is super expensive tap water, cheap but worth less than budweiser in my opinion.Yup thats right. The worst of America is better than this stuff. What's with the reviews. Beer is supposed to have taste too.
Add hilea hops or an earthy hop and some maple syrup extract. Just do something to make this money well spent instead of the thing that angers me most today.
The color. That is all.

Just off the 20th street bridge is a very unassuming brewery located on the other side of the river from downtown Denver.
Prost has an outdoor seating area which overlooks the Denver skyline. It's unfortunately ruined by the oncomming and going traffic that drives by, but not the worst. Inside the place is decorated with many German territorial flags and banners hanging from the rafters. Bench seating is available, a few large barrels that act as tables, and even a few games to play if you want to hang out a bit.
The German style brews here are done real well, and occasionally there will be one or 2 guest taps. Only food is a pretzel which is fine, but there is often a food truck outside which seems to draw plenty of business. The beers are also served in classic German glassware such as tall pilsner glasses and giant bierkrügs. They will even serve Radlers and Diesels here too if you want.
It does have a bit of a German beer hall feel inside, and the brews are first rate. I unfortunately didn't get to see the copper stills they have I heard the tour is quite neat. Easily a place worth stopping by.

very cool new place getting lots of hype. its got some outside seating, and then a pretty big open new taproom, with light wood picnic tables, very community oriented. always a place to meet new folks. maybe five beers on tap, all german styles, and all impressively good. the weiss and the marzen were both fantastic. service was very friendly and responsive for how busy the place was. it was packed on a friday night. no food around, just beers. a good place to go play cards, they also have a otn of games to play, no televisions, which i appreciate. kind of a loud but comfortable beer hal atmosphere. prices were a little expensive, with a few being near 6 bucks a pint, but thats okay, the beer is exceptional and the place is cool. ill be back soon.

A German brewery literally moved overseas, the copper tanks can be seen from the beer hall. This place has several things going for it: German beer done right, location, and scenery. Located just 4 blocks from Ale House at Amato's and across I-25 from Denver Beer Co., Prost is a must stop for beer lovers.
While the number of taps is limited to 7, the beers that come out are distinct and unique to Denver. Bill Eye hopped on over from Dry Dock to brew these German style beers and hasn't missed much of a step. I thought the Weisbeer was a bit off, but the dunkel was off the charts good.
Nice seating arrangement with the long tables, and some tables out side with a view of downtown. Service is friendly. Food is via food trucks, or bring your own. A good brewery with good beer

Guess I'll be the first one to toss up a review of Prost, Denver's homage to south German bierhalls. Luckily I have a ton of experience with German beers and establishments, so hopefully I can offer a little perspective.
A little background, Prost's brewer is Bill Eye, who has become famous for his German beer recipes during his tenure at Dry Dock. In particular, his weissbier and pilsner are famous for being some of the best in the country. On top of that, the brewing equipment at Prost came from a gutted brewery near Bamberg (Hümmer) in Franconia. Their equipment is borderline one-of-a-kind in the US, and for now they're the only place in the country doing double decoction mashing, too. Essentially you have a guy who specializes in German beers making them on arguably some of the best equipment possible for the job. Seems pretty much ideal on paper...let's see where that takes us...
On to the place. When you arrive, you'll notice 5-6 picnic tables outside in a makeshift biergarten. The umbrellas on the table are small so shade is at a premium. When you walk in - that's where Prost shines. It looks a bit like a warehouse outside, but inside it has a nice mix of wood paneling, German/Bavarian/Franconian banners, and skylights that make the pace feel almost like you're outside or in a festival tent. The natural lighting makes the place feel open and lively. On the walls you'll notice plenty of decorations from various German breweries, including the large sign from Hümmer, their lineage brewery. There are 8 large picnic tables (meant to be shared), 3 long high-top tables, and an L-shaped bar. Additionally, they have a room blocked off for parties and even a "stammtisch" or locals table for regulars.
The beers consist of 3 different traditional German items, a "happy accident" and some guest taps due in the near future.
Their feature beer is a Franconian dunkel, which is slightly drier than the more common Munich variety. The recipe for this beer is apparently 100% authentic and came from the Hümmer brewery itself. Personally, I think it's great and it reminds me a lot of a slightly less sweet Löwenbräu dunkel. Lots of people seem to confuse this for a dark wheat beer for some reason. It's a lager, pretty much like a dark helles.
Next is their pilsner, fashioned off of the pils beers further north in the country. It's similar to Jever and has a distinct herbal note in the finish.
The third beer is Bavarian weissbier or hefeweizen (a term almost never used in Germany). This one is darker and heartier than Bill's previous editions and has a bit more of a vanilla cream note. There's a back note I'm not a huge fan of, but some people seem to like it even more. I'd say it reminds me a bit of Schneider Tap 7 for a cross-reference, but it's definitely not a clone.
Their last beer is called Batch 1, and is a version of their weissbier that turned out extra dark and extra malty. It's a bit like a dunkelweizen crossed with a dunkel lager and a kiss of sourness and caramel thrown in. It's not really like anything else, but I didn't mind it at all. It's a unique change of pace in a pretty authentic spot.
Everything is available in traditional glassware or even a 1L mass is you like. Want a final half-pour? You can get a 1/2 price "schnitt" to finish up your trip.
Due as guest taps in the near future are Dad and Dude's Dank IPA, and Crooked Stave Petit Sour, both of which were brewed on premises, too. There's also a listing for a Tivoli Helles, which I have no clue about. I think those should make for great change ups in a place that's sticking to German roots.
While maybe not for serious beer geeks, they also offer the option for mixers like radlers, russ'ns, and diesels, too. You can even add shots of raspberry syrup to the beers or order a cola/orange mix called "spezi" as well.
Service at the bar is good, but table service is a bit hit or miss. Maybe they took that authentic thing a little too far?
The place is fun, authentic, and the guest taps should flesh things out for people who don't geek out over German beers as much as I do, too.
Prost is definitely a place I see myself going back to way too much!
