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.

Durango is lucky to have a handful of GREAT small breweries in town and Durangoans do love their beer! Steamworks has a great selection of different types of beers and a huge menu with great food! Great place for kids, they can chalk draw on the floors and throw peanut shells on the ground! Messy kids? No Worries! ;) Service... More

If you want a good taste of Durango, I recommend Steamworks. The menu is versatile....from pasta and great pizza to my favorite burger.....the Santa Rita. The beer is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is pure Durango ! We live here now, but that is certainly not a requirement to enjoy this place.

They have a wide variety of food. I'm not a beer drinker, but they are also known for their variety of specially brewed beers. One of the best restaurants in Durango!

We got in to eat around 9pm, and it was a great meal with fantastic beer. Large menu with lots of options for adults and children. The staff was exceptionally friendly, and it was a fun atmosphere. Highly recommend while in this great mountain town!

We are locals and we LOVE Steamworks! With all of the restaurants in town, casual and more sophisticated, this is still our favorite restaurant in Durango. The Cajun Boil is amazing!! The spice mix that they make is none like I have ever had before. We just love it! We eat at Steamworks 2 - 3 times a month for... More

We are locals and have been eating (and drinking) at Steamworks since they opened in the late 1990's. They have improved in both food and beer over the years and have really become the "go-to" place for travelers who don't want a fancy sit-down meal. They have a nice outdoor patio and several indoor rooms replete with TVs for sports... More

Steamworks is a fantastic restaurant and an even better brewery! A great gathering place for everyone from families to college students to the over 50 crowd. Awesome selection of beers for every palate, including the best Imperial IPA that you will ever find on tap - nitrogen charged Conductor IPA. The food is consistently good. I travel a lot around...

Great menu. Ribs were moist. Try the chicken & jalapeno waffles! Yum! Family friendly. Great kids menu. Kids get chalk to write on the floor. They loved it!

Our dinner and beverages were delicious! And, our waiter didn't even flinch when my eighteen month old sprayed milk in his face. We had sandwiches, but the boil looked delish--we will definitely be trying that next time!
