One other thing I'd like to give you a head's up on is that, as a part of Denver Beer Fest Week, our neighbors down @ Vesta are having a beer dinner on Sunday September 20th with Great Divide Brewing. Vesta Dipping Grill opened just a couple of weeks after the Falling Rock in 1997 & have been producing creative & Interesting food ever since. They were also featured on the same episode of Beer Nuts as Falling Rock so I thought some of you might be up for some Great Food Paired with Great Beers. One thing to remember about this is that if you want to see better beer lists at more restaurants around town, events like this show the restaurants that beer is worth their time & Attention. So here's the Menu:

                     Vesta Dipping Grill Brewer’s Dinner – $55/person
Sunday Sept 20, 2009

Amuse Bouche
Grilled Duck Sausage
Apple sauerkraut, Denver Pale Ale mustard

Best part about GABF when I was there might have been Falling Rock.  Glad I got a seat early at the bar, cause waitress service was horrid.

I was there this summer, and they had no stand-outs because they were probably saving everything for GABF. It was a bummer.
