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.

“Steamworks Brew Co. great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

My wife and I moved to Durango 3 months ago and have been to Steamworks at least 5 times already both with friends and just by ourselves. Great atmosphere. I really love the Face Plant lager but if they don't have that I usually go with the 3rd Eye Pale Ale. Their New England Clam Chowder is surprising really good. After leaving the North East I didn't expect to find good chowda in Colorado.....

“Another Great Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Recommended from our Jeep Tour Guide. Unlike the Ore House recommendation this was another family restaurant with a wide food selection. I am not a beer drinker so I cannot comment on the Beer. However the food was great and again the server was knowledgeable of the selection on the menu. Prices again were reasonable.

“Good pizza and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We ate here one evening after spending all day riding the train. It was a short walk from the hotel. We waited about 15 min to get seated but there was a lady doing balloon animals outside. We ordered a meat pizza and my wife had a large salad also. I tried a Belgian ale and later the Third Eye PA. (There's a large blackboard in the back that lists all the current brews with brew dates, abc, ibu, etc). Service was fast and friendly but not obtrusive. It was all good and a some good basic food that was most welcome at the end of a long day.

“Many good beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We had to wait for 20 minutes.
They have a lot of good beers to choose from. Waiter gave us a good advise for the right beer. Food was ok. The children liked it to throw the peanut shells on the floor, although this make a messy impression to me. Restaurant is build around the brewery. A nice place to re-visit!
