My Brother’s Bar: Toss back a few at Denver’s oldest watering hole

Toss back a few at Denver’s oldest watering hole

The signless pub opened in 1873 in Denver’s Lower Highlands neighborhood, near what is now Confluence Park. It still boasts the original pressed-tin ceiling and walnut bar, plus a staircase to nowhere ever since the second floor burned years ago. My Brother’s Bar has 18 draft beers and a jalapeño–cream cheese burger that’s almost as legendary as Jack Kerouac’s regular patronage during the ’50s. Try the popular honey brown ale from Boulder-based Twisted Pine Brewing Company, and park yourself in the shaded beer garden. Insider’s tip: From Valentine’s Day through April, 5,000 boxes of girl scout cookies line the walls and pile atop every surface available—grab ’em while you can.
