Joining the Denver restaurant scene back in August, Prost has already become a favorite among locals. Located just a few blocks up from Riverfront Dental on 19th Street, this beer hall was designed with its German predecessors in mind.
The actual brewing system for Prost is a copper kettle and mash turn that was created for a brewery in Germany back in 1963. It remained at the Bucher Bräu brewery in Grafenau until 1984, when it was moved to a village in Bavaria. But now, this prized system has made its way to Denver and is serving happy customers German-style beers such as Marzen, Prost Pils, Hefeweizen, Dunkel, and a seasonal brew. Prost will also feature an occasional guest brew from other breweries in Colorado.
Head brewer Bill Eye has a passion for authenticity, traveling to Germany numerous times to work with German brewers and learn their techniques. Eye also wanted to make sure his beer hall had the same look and feel of the halls from the old country. Prost seats 80 people inside with its fest tables, and an additional 60 with its outdoor patio.
Prost’s beer is making its way to other Denver establishments as well. Prost Pils is now being served at Falling Rock Tap House, Ernie’s Bar & Pizza, and Mellow Mushroom. It’s even selling the Hefeweizen beer at Mile High Wine and Spirits, located at 435 South Vance St. in Lakewood.
Not a beer drinker? The Denver food truck scene has been teaming up with the brewery and parking outside the hall to serve hungry patrons. Trucks such as Capt’n Crabby, übersausage, and DipStik have already made regular visits.
On Wednesday November 7th, Ernie’s Bar & Pizza and Prost will be joining forces to create a delectable German Beer Dinner. The Dinner will feature four unique courses each paired with a different Prost beer, as well as some surprises along the way. So grab your stein, grab your friends, and head to Prost. Cheers!
