THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hops Restaurant & Brewery Restaurant Review

: This Denver installment of a national chain is one of the most misnamed places in Colorado. Why? Despite the house’s handle, the insipid, watered-down beers here are virtually hop-free and the most meaningless brews in this beer-rich town. Maybe that’s why they serve these abysmal brews in frosted flavor-hiding mugs. Shameful. If you’re hungry, however, you’ll have a little better luck in finding something at least partially satisfying. The menu delivers the middle-of-the-road grub you’ll find at Ruby Tuesday’s or Bennigans burgers, cuts of average beef, gooey pasta platters and seen-it-all-before appetizers. Ho hum.
