Upon the recommendation of Siskiyou County colleagues, I stopped in Dunsmuir returning to the Sacramento Valley and stumbled into the Dunsmuir Brewery Works for lunch. What a find! I enjoyed a Nutburger (garbanzo beans and ground nuts), on a ciabatta roll with homemade aioli,and my selection of a side-thinly sliced butternut squash with young haricorts verts. I enjoyed every bite!

Stopped here for a few brews after being on the river all day. The location on the main drag of Dunsmuir features outdoor patio seating and a good selection of draft beers. I favor the Pilsner variety while my wife tends to like the hoppy offerings. We enjoyed sitting outside on an autumn afternoon, relaxing and watching the crowd. Did... More

If you are passing through or spending the night in Dunsmuir plan on stopping by the Brewery Works. We discovered it 4 years ago by chance when spending the night at the Cedar Lodge which we also recommend. We make a point of eating at the Brewery whenever we are passing through on our way from S. Ca. to Seattle.... More

On my way home from Fall River Mills got hungry. Stopped in Dunsmuir for a beer and a bite. Tried the IPA and an Elk burger. Both were very good. .

We had a wonderful meal on the patio (not much room inside, really) while listening to the Whiskey Gulch Band play bluegrass. The place was really busy, so the service was a bit slow. We didn't mind because we weren't in a hurry and the live music was toe-tappin' good! I had their half-pound burger and my wife had the... More

My wife and I discovered and ate at Dunsmuir Brewery Works quite serendipitously. We had intended just to grab some burgers either at The Burger Barn or at Micki's Better Burger, both highly recommended on Yelp. Micki's looked awful, so we were going to try the very interesting looking Yaks down the road from it, which is very highly rated... More

Ate on the patio...great selection and food for such a small town. Pulled pork was delicious. Nice breezy evening, very informal. Relaxing atmosphere...tasty food.

I thought the food (Mahi Mahi street Tacos) were amazing, the Beer and atmosphere were nice and comfortable. The house brewed root beer was a hit with the kids. The Beer was fantastic, the service was a little slow but worth the wait. We will definitely be stopping in again on our next trip through.

I've come for lunch several times and never been disappointed. The first time I went expecting typical bar food---beer, burgers, fries and not a lot else. I was pleasantly surprised to find good variety on their menu--including several vegetarian options. The ahi tuna melt special is excellent. My veggie sister gives their homemade nutburger and broccoli slaw top marks. Service... More

Staying in Dunsmuir for one night on road trip, would never have expected such a great place for drinks and food. Beer: The brewery's beer is excellent. Fresh, tasty and right up there with other California craft brews. Food: The menu surprised me. I couldn't make up my mind. It's got a gastropub feel to it. I settled on the... More
