Great beer

Come for the beer, and deal with the personality of the owner. He really could make more money with a bit more of a positive approach. But that is not is not his style. He does tend to smile at the attractive young ladies who come in. But who wouldn't. It is by far the best beer in town... read more

This place is on main street in Ouray and only takes cash. The beer is wonderful (I loved the brown and the stout). I had three of them and felt great the next day. Sometimes when I drink craft beers, they will take a hit on me the next day whether I have one or four...not this place...the beer is... More

The meal was beer 10,20 or 26 Ounces. Great variety as well as quality. The owner (Brewmaster) makes this place work. He will sit in a swing behind the bar and chat with you while you visit. About the beer, the city and life itself. I have seen him throw people out over the years for being obnoxious or disrespectful.... More

Loved the name Mr Grumpy pants so decided to stop by for a beer. When we asked about the beers we were treated with a flat affect. Stick pointing to a board. Less than helpful or friendly. I understand you have the name and that's what catches the interest of patrons and that's why we wanted to try it out... More

I love Mr. Grumpypants. It is low key and rustic inside. The porch makes for great people watching. The beers are all good and truly local. No mystery ingredients here and no food. You can get a burger next door but Ourayle does one thing... beer.

We expected crabby based on the name: Ourale House Brewing Home of Grumpy Guy Brewing. But seriously, man, lighten up. It would be one thing if the grumpiness were kitchy, but it was just plain grumpy. Boo for you when your main patrons are tourists. If you're that unhappy serving non locals and so grumpy doing what you're doing, do... More

If you are looking to grab a quality microbrew, this is your place. It's definitely no frills but it's very chill and the beer is very good. The service is not like a 5 star establishment, the décor is interesting, some greasy spoon food next door but this place is all about the beer. If that is what your looking... More

We never come to Ouray without having a beer here. The beer is great and we enjoy the super relaxed and funky atmosphere. It's great to sit in a comfy rocker or you can sit outside or at the bar. This time it was awfully hot inside so we didn't stay long.

I don't think that we understood the whole attitude thing. The bartender, who I assume is the owner, did say, "Have a good day." as we left. I just didn't get it.

Yes, the owner is known as "Mr. Grumpy Pants" But, he makes grrrrreat beer. Reasonably priced. Served in a funky place. Try the IPA. YUM
