Had a lovely visit and enjoyed the aforesaid mushrooms. Service was efficient, the drinks were cold and the food was delicious, if a little greaser than I like it was quite filling. Stop at Idaho Springs for at least this much. This root beer is popular as a take home for later.

Service was sub par... I had an orange cream soda and it tasted like medicine, tried the almond creme... Terrible. Half the food came out and they finished it, then the rest came out (they comped our apps and drinks). But, the Mac n Chz was off tha charts good!!! I had mine with blackened chick, japs, mush, and bacon...... More

We stopped in here after going ziplining and had a nice lunch. Great beers on tap. Food was yummy but a little over priced. Ask your tour guides for a free beer coupon if you go rafting or ziplining!

We stopped for beer on our way out of town. The kids ordered root beer. I hate root beer but have to say this was pretty good and it is not your grocery store root beer. The stout beer was pretty good too. My husband had a saison. He enjoyed it but wasn't my favorite.

We went here twice on our vacation. Once was just for their homemade root beer floats which were soooo good! They make their own root beer and if you love root beer floats you have GOT to try one!! The service this time was amazing! We sat at the bar and the bartender took care of us right away and... More

this is my second visit and this time i brought a group of friends. its a family-brewery-bar restaurant, so it appeals to most everyone. we loved it, including the different flavors of freshly made sodas, cuz were not beer drinkers. the strawberry was good but even better was the almond creme. i was disappointed they no longer carry the key...

Stopped on the recommendation of a friend. The service was slow and abrupt. The menu sounded greasy and we were very excited, but the food was disappointing. The Mac and cheese was boring. The burgers were so charred there was no other flavor. The beer was so-so. Wouldn't return.

The brewery was easy to find, but a little tight getting in the door. Saturday evening the place was slammed! The beer was great and the service was perfect. We'll be back :)

Had high hopes for this place, menu looked delicious. However, the burger was dry, the fries were definitely not fresh--tasted like they'd been sitting around a couple of days--the extra charges for bacon and garlic on fries were not worth it, due to quality. The beer is probably the best thing about this place.

Stopped in here before and after a show at Red Rocks. Enjoyed some tasty beers, average price for a brewpub. Ate the veggie burger as there weren't too many other veggie options. The waitress snatched up my basket before I was done and before I had a chance to tell I wasn't finished. Wasn't too happy about that. Otherwise, it's... More
