Description: Steamworks Brewing Co. Opened its doors in Durango in September 1996. A favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike, the brewpub has much more to offer than award-winning craft beer. Known as a town meeting place, Steamworks enjoys a bustling, fun environment. Steamworks' culinary program is unmatched in the region in both breadth and quality of offerings. The "gastropub" fare includes regionally-raised meats and sustainable seafood. Healthy salads, delicious pizzas, spicy Southwestern-style dishes, and vegetarian & gluten-free offerings provide something for everyone who's hungry. The Steam Engine Lager is "arguably the best American - Style Amber Lager in the world" as it has garnered four Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze Medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) over the years and also has taken a Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup (WBC). Steamworks has won a total of twelve GABF medals, and two WBC medals. The brewpub maintains up to 18 styles of beer on tap.

This restaurant is a must when visiting Durango. The wait time has always been at least an hour every visit, but the atmosphere keeps everyone entertained. You can't go wrong with their IPA & burgers. My kids love the pizza! The service is always great. Don't pass up the ice cream for dessert.

Obviously this is a popular place. Lines of people waiting to get in. Once inside, the food is good, reasonably priced, and plenty of it. If fancy is what you want, this is not the place. If you want a good selection of microbrews and a good menu this is the place. A young crowd, and it is noisy. Every... More

We were on the way home and we had to make a stop for the hubby to have a sampler. The wait staff was FANTASTIC!! We are a family of 6 so it takes a lot for us to go out. We got seated quickly and our drinks arrived in record time. The food was delicious and the portions sizes... More

We visited on Saturday night and were told it would be an hour wait. Twenty minutes later, we were seated and enjoying our first wonderful beverage. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu items and all the beer selections. The wine selections are very good, too. I enjoyed the Quinoa burger with the side of asparagus. The flavors were...

Such fun to eat outside under the pergola! The tour through the brewery was most informative and a fun "side-trip" to our vacation. The brewery is right down the street from the Wyndham at Pagosa Springs, which meant we could walk over and walk back to the hotel w/o worrying about having enjoyed the taster' variety of beers and ales....

We had such a nice dinner there and the wait was well worth it. We spoiled our dinner with an appetizer of beer bread, chips and spinach/artichoke dip - heavenly. I had the Mediterranean salad and it was delicious. There were lots of families there and the younger children were entertained by drawing on the floor with chalk. Service was... More

Stopped by on our trip to CO and was looking for good food that would be good for kids. Man was it good. We had burgers, chicken strips & the most amazing chicken and waffles. A must have for sure. The waffles have green chilis and cheese & are to die for. To top off the great food, I left... More
