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

They have a great upstairs balcony which is perfect for Spring afternoons to grab a drink & a bite to relax and people watch! Live music on some evenings. They serve basic bar food but there's nothing wrong with that! Long been one of my favorite spots to drink after a day on the Mountain.

Came to Crested Butte for our spring break vacation. Went to The Eldo and purchased advanced wrist bands for the music they were having that night. Was looking forward to a fun night in Crested Butte. One in our party was accused by the owner/manager of reproducing the $5 wrist band that their bartender had sold to me hours earlier.... More

Bar: Great drink deals and selection. Food: See menu I posted. Nachos are great as well as Bacon Cheese Burger! Atmosphere: Large area with balcony, ping pong table and juke box. Customer service: Great bartenders and cook, was able to offer great recommendations! Overall a great place for beers, drinks and food with friends.

They have 5 beers... Pump Ken porter a stout, IPA, a golden ale and an iPA @ 9.4abv. Ambiance is crap at best... The only locally produced beer and its a seedy nightclub. Happy trails must be the kitchen... Its pub grub at best... Might be good, but no steak dinners here
