The 1 Up: Great games, fun times, & craft beer!
The 1 Up bar & video game arcade in Denver has been open for a little over a year. It’s such a fun time, and lots of people know it. Located a block away from Coors Field, it is packed on game days and has an impressive line of folks waiting to get in on any given Friday or Saturday night. (In fact, it must be doing quite well as they are set to open a second location, The 2 Up, on Colfax in June.) It’s located just next door to Falling Rock Tap House, which has the most extensive tap wall in the city. So if you’re looking for a great beer, hit up Falling Rock and then go down to The 1 Up for some games. But wait…do you really need to go to Falling Rock first? Well, if you want to choose from 75+ taps, then yes–you need to go to Falling Rock. But if 15 taps is enough for you, The 1 Up is the place to go.
About a dozen of the draft beers at The 1 Up are actually Colorado microbrews, which may (or may not) come as a surprise to many. They also have the standard “regulars” such as Bud Light, etc. , but having 12 craft beers from which to choose isn’t something I would normally expect from an arcade bar. Though some beers are available on a rotating basis, here is a list of their current offerings:
- Great Divide’s Colette
- Bull & Bush’s Man Beer IPA
- Left Hand’s Nitro Milk Stout
- Dale’s Pale Ale
- Ska’s Pinstripe Red
- Bristol Brewing’s Laughing Lab Scottish Ale
- Bristol Brewing’s Nitro IPA
- Bristol Brewing’s Mass Transit Ale
- Dry Dock Blonde
They also have a full bar, so whatever you’re in the mood for, The 1 Up can make it happen. Stop in today and check it out!
