The Post Brewing Co. opened in Lafayette, Colorado in 2014. It has since expanded, opening The Post Chicken & Beer in Longmont as well as in Denver’s Rosedale neighborhood. I really enjoy The Post in Lafayette, but as a Denver resident I’m happy to have an even closer location.
I recently visited The Post Chicken & Beer Rosedale for the first time. As the name implies, chicken (and the beer, of course) is the restaurant’s main attraction. While my vegetarian diet precludes me from trying the chicken, I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about it. But still, why would a person who doesn’t eat meat pick such a place for brunch? Even though chicken isn’t an option for me, I knew there would be plenty of other delicious ways to enjoy my favorite meal of the week.
There are a few different ways a vegetarian can do brunch at The Post Chicken & Beer Rosedale. Here are my suggestions:
There are tons of options on the brunch menu for everyone. As for the chicken, the traditional fried version is always available, but the menu also boasts a variety of ways to get your chicken fix in the morning with some breakfast-style dishes. Check out the Chicken and Waffles, Chicken Fried Steak or the Chicken & Biscuit.
Beverages include the classic brunch drink, the Bloody Mary as well as a couple of other interesting cocktails: Country Bubbles (house-made punch limeade, bubbles) and the Man-Mosa (vodka, Post Top Rope, orange juice). I was curious about both of the latter, but I was I was in the mood for a good, strong beer.
If it looks like the same type of beer in all of the photos here, that’s because it is. I can’t get enough of the Rooster Cruiser Double IPA! It goes with everything, in my opinion. But for those who aren’t into IPAs or simply want something under 8% ABV, other suggestions are2016 GABF Gold Medal) or the Townie Ale. And definitely feel free to ask the staff for beer suggestions with your meal; they are experienced in what pairs best with certain dishes, and they are always happy to help.
The Post Chicken & Beer Rosedale is open for dinner every day at 4 p.m., serves Friday lunch at 11 a.m., and brunch on Saturday and Sunday starting at 9 a.m.
If barleywine is not your breakfast bevie of choice, we’ll have a few of our other aged big beers on tap for the tasting.
Roll out of bed, put your sunglasses on, and get here while the burritos last!

It’s about time Boulder had a craft beer festival of its own! All of the breweries are great, but I am especially excited that a few of my personal favorites will be in attendance that day. I’m looking at you, Fate, Sanitas, and Gravity.
