Description: Steamworks Brewing Co. Opened its doors in Durango in September 1996. A favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike, the brewpub has much more to offer than award-winning craft beer. Known as a town meeting place, Steamworks enjoys a bustling, fun environment. Steamworks' culinary program is unmatched in the region in both breadth and quality of offerings. The "gastropub" fare includes regionally-raised meats and sustainable seafood. Healthy salads, delicious pizzas, spicy Southwestern-style dishes, and vegetarian & gluten-free offerings provide something for everyone who's hungry. The Steam Engine Lager is "arguably the best American - Style Amber Lager in the world" as it has garnered four Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze Medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) over the years and also has taken a Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup (WBC). Steamworks has won a total of twelve GABF medals, and two WBC medals. The brewpub maintains up to 18 styles of beer on tap.

“Fun Atmosphere & Decent Food & Very Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Make reservations if you can because Steamworks is usually packed. The atmosphere is lively and sometimes quite loud and the food is good, not amazing. Prices are good. Definitely worth a stop while in Durango.

“The tourists watering hole”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Fun, lively place with lots of options on the menu, but good luck at getting in on a summer evening during tourists season. This is where all the tourists go in Durango... to throw their peanut shells on the floor.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

The food is good and atmoshere is fun. The queso dip is high quality and tasty. I had the macaroni and cheese (it has a southwest flair of chiles) which was very good, portions on the large size, but reheated and enjoyed it later as well.

“Exceeded my expectations; the food was really good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012 via mobile

I was expecting typical pub food, but everything we ordered was excellent. We enjoyed pulled pork sliders with citrus slaw and a chimichanga with red & green chile. Well prepared, fresh & nicely plated. We sampled several beers in a sampler flight that was a nice way to experience a variety of styles in one visit. Our server was very friendly and helpful, but slightly disorganized & I had to ask where my beer order was after I'd already had time to eat 1/4 of my meal.
