The decor is charming, comfortable (there's a fireplace/wood stove) and eclectic, and several puzzles/games placed about. The bartender (?owner) was quite friendly and welcoming. I'll definitely be back!

Very good beer and loved the atmosphere. No food served here but Maggies is right next door if you need something. Loved the Amber!

I'll do my best to keep a somewhat long story- shorter. My wife and I visit Ouray once a year as an annual weekend getaway. Last year we went to Mr. Grumpy's / the Ourayle House for the first time- and although he was a bit crude at first, the inside was borderline nasty, and the crowd wasn't exactly welcoming-... More

The beer selection is small, but the brews are very tasty. The owner/barkeep/brewer is pretty grumpy, but it's a small price to pay to sip on the best beer in Ouray while watching the tourists pass by. The beer blows the upscale Ouray Brewery out if the water. If you are a true fan if craft beer, skip the touristy... More

Ok, so the place is a bit funky and the owner an independent free spirit. The place is easy to relax in and have a good beer. Ouray Brewery is trying to hard to have a wide selection and seems to have missed the mark. Ourayle house is the smallest brewery in Colorado and he had only three beers on... More

Also known as Grumpy's. Name is pretty accurate but it's still a cool place for a local brew. You can sit on the front porch and watch the people, traffic and mountains. Beer is really good there.

If "Richard A" reads this, I would like him to know I was offered the same child's sippy cup when I asked for a glass of water as well. It didn't offend me, but this wasn't my first visit to Ourayle House. I laughed it off and said it would be great if it was vodka in the sippy cup...life... More

I understand the cache of a "Mr. Grumpy" barkeep in an old mining town but sometimes he crosses the line to be downright offensive and insulting. After a day of fishing, our group stopped by for some beers. One of our crew is a recovering alcoholic and asked for something non alcoholic (he was buying) and when he was told... More

The beers at the Ourayle House Brewery are by far the best in Ouray! They have changed locations to the north end of main street, 703 Main street /Hwy 550, next to Maggie's burgers, East side of main street. Awesome beers. Pass by the bigger brewpub and get great quality beers at Ourayle! Seriously! I prefer these beers!

Had a great time hanging out here, owner is great fun once you get talking. Some of the best beer I had in the States, closest anyone got to the good stuff in the UK. Loads of games and cool stuff to look at in the bar.
