Fantastic beer!

Really cool atmosphere, and great tasting beer. Menu is pretty good as well... could use a little work on the vegetarian options though.

We sat on the roof/patio and although it got chilly after the sun went down, it is definitely the best seats in the house. The bar tender who also takes your food order was great; very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed trying different beer selections and the food was better than what I expected.

Local beers and extensive, hearty lunch (from chili to veg.burgers) in a funky, fun setting. It was winter, so we ate inside, next to the colorful bar, which has swings for seats instead of stools. Rooftop garden would be nice in the summer. Full of locals - excellent coffee. Dessert of the day was chocolate raspberry cake on a bed... More

As one of the few places open on Presidents Day it was an accidental find, but so lovely. Really friendly, young staff, who were happy to give us tasters of the special brews to see which ones we liked, but with lots of other choices too, you're not limited to just beer. I had the salmon and it was fabulous,... More

Our group visited on an early Sunday evening, and as all the other ice-climbers streamed in (about 6:30-7) it got packed. The server was patient, warm, and efficient. The atmosphere is very fun with some not-too-heavy '80's rock, chairlift-cable bar seats, and engraved ice tool blades. The food (sandwiches, burgers, and fries) was wonderful although my friend who got the... More

Decent and good but not great food, the upper deck has a great view of the surrounding mountains from middle of Ouray. It has good beer choices

Erik Weihenmayer has always been a hero of mine. There aren't many people that can say they have climbed to the top of Everest blind. In fact there is only one. I had the chance to meet him while we grabbed something to eat. The BBQ was amazing and we had a great time and will be back for sure.

Great beers and AWESOME wings, but the service was lackluster. There were a few servers when I dined here, but they seemed more concerned with flirting with each other rather than helping diners. I had a beer taster and each selection was great in it's own regard. My favorite was the red ale with a nice balance between bitter and... More

This is a popular place to eat and drink at, and for good reason. I have been here numerous times and it has always been good. The beer, food, restaurant itself, and the service are very good, but not excellent. It is priced a little high for the beer and food, but still good for what it is. I will... More

Again, we just can't stop talking about the food and drink here. We just had to stop back here on our way home and have dinner. We can't wait to visit again.
