The fountain is one of several scattered throughout the lobby, whose water source is an artesian well that reaches 720 feet deep beneath the hotel. That's 60 stories, which means the well is roughly as deep as the Dallas Fountain Place skyscraper is tall.
Even more impressive is the fact that the well still functions as the hotel's main water supply (guest rooms, kitchens, the spa—you name it, the water all comes from here), just like it has for the past 120 years.
To celebrate the Brown Palace's 120th anniversary last year, the hotel's Ship Tavern a teamed up with a local craft brewery to brew an "Artesian Lager," made with (you guessed it!) water from the well.
The limited edition beer ran out in September, but if it's the water you're after, all you have to do is walk into the lobby, locate one of the fountains, and drink. Simple as that.
