Fun location - sit outside and watch what happens on main street; excellent hamburgers and sweet potato fries. Lots to choose from the brewery.

Many bars have a pool table, not all have the covers to convert to a ping pong table. Eldo does just that. The bar is upstairs on the main track of Crested Butte, Elk Ave. With a 2nd floor open balconey to watch the goings on up and down Elk, to the well made drinks and foosball, billiards and ping...

Their house beers were decent, but for someplace calling themselves a brewery I was hoping for more. Food was ok, basic fried bar food and the atmosphere left allot to be desired. The service was good though, very friendly.

We were staying in Crested Butte for just one evening and wandering along the Main Street we discovered The Eldo. If you are looking for a 5 Star high class restaurant with silver service and wine at $50.00 a bottle ...stop reading now.... But, if you want to visit one of the friendliest restaurant / bars anywhere, that not only... More

Fun place with darts and pool upstairs. Nice cold beer and fun atmosphere. We did not hang around for the band but music every night we were told.

A mid-afternoon visit to this main street bar was a bit disappointing. The main attraction is the roof top bar that overlooks main street. We had to order our food and drinks at the bar. I took the drinks back to our table and the manager/bartender (Callie) brought the food to us. May have just been in between shifts. Food... More

We stopped in The Eldo Brewery for some local brews and a bite. The Wild Iris brew was really light and refreshing, the burgers juicy and the atmosphere was friendly with a good local vibe.

Never got a greeting or table service. Waited a while and went to bar for drinks, older couple next to us left after 10-15 without any sort of recognition or service. Didn't really blame them. Evidently the place prospers on locals and doesn't need any walk in, out town, high end clientele. We had one and done without a hello... More

We stopped in at the Eldo Brewery on 2 consecutive days the end of April. The female bartender was very welcoming and offered us samples of the beers we wanted to taste. After deciding on one, my husband restated the price and was told during Happy Hour the beer would cost $4/ pint. The beer, an IPA, was very tasty... More
