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.

Yes, nirvana. Crested Butte is a happening little ski town in the summer, being a gateway to the Elk Mountains, which are arguably the most beautiful, and perhaps dangerous, in the great state of Colorado. As such, it was fitting that on my first visit to Montanya, we were celebrating a good friend's birthday on the eve of an epic... More

Excellent rum and interesting concoctions with extraordinary creativity! The new location is more intimate and lends itself to a friendlier atmosphere. Thus far I have tried Teocalli, Basil Paradisi, Strawberry Jive and Thai Boxer - all are worthy! Montanya's artisanal, infused rums are delicious. My husband is a purist and has settled on Oro on the rocks with a twist... More

We stopped here on a Saturday afternoon and I'm so glad we did. The drinks were delicious! The service was great and the free popcorn was an added bonus. We will definitely be back!
