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.

“Cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is a sports/beer bar, café and restaurant, in an old brewery (you can still see the beer being brewed!). It is a cool place, although a bit noisy due to all the activity going around. Basic wooden tables and stools, but good for a quick bite.

Tasty dishes (try the battered shrimp) and not very expensive.

“Excellent beer and food, highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Great beers, Colorado Kolsch was delicious.

We had pizza, some sort of cheese covered chips, and french dip. all delicious. Cheese sauce on the chips was amazing!

There was a wait, we were there on a thursday night, but peak Summer tourist season.

Will be back!

“Excellent dinner and beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We had to wait for 30 minutes for a table on a Saturday night, but the food was excellent. I highly recommend the Cajun broil....crab, shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes and andouille sausage in a spicy Cajun sauce. It's messy to eat but absolutely delicious!

“Nice place to start a Durango Beer Feast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Wow, This place is so busy which is a good sign. There were no tables available so I went straight to the Bar and was treat very well by the Bartender. The food portions were generous and I made a meal out of my Chicken Nachos. I order the Kolsch and was really enjoying how easy it was drinking and then the Spicy Nachos arrived and I moved up to the IPA and found a perfect partner for my Nachos. I bought a six pack of the Kolsch and love the colorful can with the Colorado State Flag on it.

“Flashes of Brilliance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Cool place with a laid back vibe. The food was good, pizza ran low on sauce & cheese, but the Mac n cheese was fantastic- the smokiness of the chilis really make it pop.
The beers were great- particularly those aged in barrels.

Definitely worth a try.
