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.

They Make Beer on Site!

The pizza and burgers are great! I ordered a 6-beer sampler and asked the waitress to add anything but IPA's. The good selection allowed me to sample many and order the one I liked best. This was a great way to end the train ride from Silverton!

Visited Steamworks on Friday afternoon. We did not have a wait to be seated and it was happy hour so we were very pleasantly surprised. Most reviews we read complained about long waits. The beer was very good. We both had their Brown and it was very flavorful. We had fish tacos and there wasn't anything really special about them,... More

On a recent trip to Durango with friends, we decided to have Saturday night dinner at the Steamworks Brewing Company. Since we had a party of 8 and reservations were not accepted, we arrived around 5pm and had a minimal wait. We sat outside and had a great time. Service and food were excellent!

Our visit started with the sidewalk chalk my girls were given to draw on the sidewalks outside while we waited. Kept them occupied the entire time. The food was great, my husband said it was the best French Dip he has ever had. The beer battered fried were a great change from the mundane.

We met out-of-town family members here, so we trust Steamworks for serving good food on a consistent basis. I ordered the quinoa burger, but the quinoa "wasn't ready yet", so I ordered the Gouda burger made with sliced apples and braised onions. It was very good, as were the fries. My husband ordered fish and chips and gave it a... More

Best Hefeweizen I've had! Great food and service! I had the hummus plate that was very good and thought I could tackle the special as well. Needless to say that I'm taking home over half.

Short wait, so we sat outside and enjoyed roasted salted peanuts with a couple of great beers before being seated. Service was excellent and food was very good.

Love me a place that has their own beer; not boring like other places. Had the Colorado Kolsch; good stuff! One night I had the meatball grinder, the next night the bacon royale Not disappointed either time. Good service too. And the place was hopping; a good time was had by all
