Stopped for food and beers after hiking mushroom rock. Small selection of beers and wish they had more brewed in house when we stopped. Waitress was very attentive. Two of us got the bourbon bacon grilled cheese which is excellent. The grilled onions make the sandwich. Fries were greasy and overcooked. The coleslaw was very tasty.

We decided to eat here after a chef that works there told us that they had new owners and had completely changed and improved the menu. Previously, it was mainly a brewery with some typical bar fare offered as well, but now it has some improved quality options for food. They do a local beef burger pretty well and my... More

I stopped before Ride the Rockies. Friendly staff. I got the rueben and fries. Rueben was good, I'd vote for a little more sour kraut. The mushroom fries were the show-stealers! IMHO possible top fries ever.

My wife and I stopped in for a drink and a bite. Service was prompt and friendly. The beer was good. I could have used it a degree or two colder. Not bad, just not perfect - for me. We had the pretzel and beer cheese starter. Very good. Beer cheese could have been a bit thicker. My wife had... More

Came in for First Friday, place was busy and hopping. Ordered the English Bitter Ale, so good! Had to have a couple. Nachos were tasty. service was thoughtful and friendly. Place was packed by the time we left, with a band about to start. Had so much fun and will be back again for those delicious drafts!

Met some friends for dinner and drinks at Carbondale Beer Works while on a ski vacation in Glenwood Springs. Burgers were good, service was great, craft beers were the best.

After raving about our new find, we took my family to dinner there. We enjoyed the beer, the comfortable environment and the friendliness of staff. After having eaten there 5-6 times before we were very disappointed with the food, especially the portions. The hamburger was more like a slider, very modest in size for $12.50. My wife had a grilled... More

Staff was very friendly. Nice brews (bonus for us - we didn't realize they were a brewery also!) Atmosphere very casual, what you'd expect in a neighborhood pub. We only had the fries, but probably some of the best fries I've ever had! (Waaaay better than Aspen's #1 on Trip Advisor). And, the price was right....we will definitely return!

Visited with friends during the holidays. They recommended the Manhattan which is quite tasty. The food was average, bar-type food, but the the music by local talent made the overall experience worth the trip.
