Good brew next door to great burger

We finished a jeep tour out of Ouray and decided to grab a burger at Maggie's Kitchen. Walked in next door to grab a beer and rang the bell. The whole place smelled of warm wort percolating somewhere in the back, and there are a ton of simple games lying around for entertainment. Grabbed a great... read more

The new location on Main Street looks great and has a nice shaded porch. Policies remain the same: cash only for some of the best beer there is in one of three sizes: 26 oz, 20 oz, or one smaller size that’s just not worth remembering.

Let's get the broad strokes out of the way first before getting into the deeper, more pretentious details. 1. Hutch, the owner of this joint, brews fantastic beer. He usually has five or six different types of beer on tap, and they're all great. Pale ales, reds, IPAs, ambers, stouts, etc. He's worked hard to fine tune his recipes and... More

The brainchild of a brewer known best as Mr. Grumpypants, Ouralye House is a great place to visit if you go in without the expectations of a typical brewery stopover. Regular hours are a bit of a myth and are more dependent on how good the river conditions are and whether the one-man staff wants to come in for it.... More

Mr. Grumpy Pants does not serve food, just great beer. So, go get your burger next door at Maggie's and bring it over and enjoy with a great local brew. The beer he recommended was just to my taste and reasonably priced. That about says it all.

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

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, and... 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
