Although our grandkids,4-6 love this place, our children love it even more. They like to meet friends for beer & fun small bites. We all like sitting outside in the casual atmosphere by the fire.

Plenty to choose from for everyone. Even if you don’t drink beer they have other choices. I had the tacos, others had the Rueben and burgers. Enough on the plates to fill your tummy! Staff was very helpful with beverage and food questions

Came here with friends who found it last year on a previous trip to Colorado Springs. Old school building converted to restaurant, brew pub and art space. Original narrow board creaky wood floors. Exposed brick and rafters with soaring ceilings. Excellent breakfast from the usual...More
