Make sure weather is nice to sit up top!

Beers were pretty good and the antipasto was different was good but different. The one burger we ordered was very good. Weren't there on our first day for a quick beer and were allowed to sit up top even though it was basically closed due to continuous 'bad' weather. The next night we went for food... read more

We had very good burgers (from excellent buns to good petties) and chicken wraps. Hint: buffalo means hot, really HOT.

This is a very nice local restaurant/brewery with very good food and a staff that enjoys their work together. It has a nice outside area as well as a small inside eating area. And to top it off, they have installed swinging bar chairs that are held with nylon straps hanging from the ceiling. A delight!

This brewery is a must when visiting Ouray. The rooftop seating has amazing views of the surrounding mountains and Main Street. Come in early, because this place gets busy during the lunch hour. We ordered the Lonestar Burger and it was perfect. Staff were pleasant. We had the Camp Bird Blonde and it was so refreshing after our busy day... More

With rooftop seating and a decent menu, you could prioritize food in your decision to stop into this hip little bar - all rough wood and predictable snow sport stickers - on Main Street. There's a can't miss hint in the name of the place though: it's a brewery, and you go for the beer, not the food. On past... More

The restaurant is located right smack in the middle of Ouray...one of the greatest small mountain towns in the world. The beer is European in taste and the food options will satisfy all. Most of all I enjoyed the friendly and efficient back country service. Try them out!

Cozy little place where the bar stools are swings! The beer and burgers were yummy and the staff was friendly and fun. If in Ouray, stop for a beer and swing a little swing.

We had lunch there May 15th, and while we enjoyed the warm place as it snowed outside, the food was every bit as good. My wife had the special chicken enchilada soup. We are both from the Tucson are and was somewhat expecting an average offering but were greatly and pleasantly surprised. The soup was extremely good, bits of chicken... More

We just discovered this place and were pleasantly surprised. This is a micro brewery and their craft beer was excellent. The burger we had was delicious. They have a rooftop patio which is fun with great views of the San Juans.
