We stopped into this Establishment after dinner for a drink. Although the specialty liquors sounded good, we were a little disappointed.

Went here based on other TA reviews and we were not disappointed! We had the bright and sunny and the strawberry jive, both were very tasty, but personally preferred the strawberry jive because of the fresh berries. The cocktail list is a few pages, making it hard to choose just one or two. Definitely order the jalapeño bacon poppers if... More

ABSOLUTELY THE VERY BEST RUM in the WORLD is hand crafted right here in this little town in the Colorado mountains! We buy our adult Christmas beverage presents here every year! Find us often sipping from the huge selection of drinks and food on the menu but love to have this rum (light or dark) on the rocks! The Owners... More

So many good drinks made of rum that it is difficult to choose. The ingredients are unique and creative. I tried 5 different drinks over 2 visits. All were fresh and well made, if not at times a bit unusual. It would not be hard to pick some favorites on return visits. Go for the rum but definitely try the... More

Stopped in for tasting and cocktails on a rainy day. Friendly service, amazing cocktail options, and the server allowed us to taste a number of their infused rum selections. Food looked great but we didn't have any. Cute atmosphere. Would highly recommend for those who like to experiment with new flavors!

We love eating here, especially when we can sit outside. Their run, both dark and light, is made from Hawaiian sugar cane and Crested Butte mountain water. The small plates are tasty and very imaginative, and there are gluten-free options.

Looking for something different, then go here. They have the best drinks with their own Rum. I really like their dark rum, which if you find a drink that they make with their light rum, you can alway have them use the dark rum. They do free tastings of their rum, so that way you can see what you like.

This is the place to drink unique, and very tasty, rum cocktails. Many different drinks to choose from and the one's I have tried have been fantastic. Good location in 'downtown' Crested Butte and just a really pleasant way to spend an evening.

My friends and I stopped in recently, and we all opted for a round of cocktails. The big hit of the evening was the Fiery Passion cocktail. We ordered quite a few of the food options, and we really loved the polenta with mozzarella. The Mediterranean plate was a great value with plenty of treats included. Oh, and those homemade... More

Aside from the scenic front deck, the cocktail selection at this bar is fantastic. I went with a group of 6 people who all ordered different drinks. All were great. My favorite was one of the martini's with cardomom. So fun for a drink.
