Enjoyed our beers on the upper deck in the sunshine. Bartender super friendly and willing to hunt down t-shirts for us in the back room. Great location, great beer, great service!

We wanted a sunny patio for an afternoon drink, and we were not disappointed! I tried one of their local brewed beers on draft, and my wife had a well made margarita, and we had a second floor patio table overlooking town below. Oh, and we also had $0.50 cent wings!

We stopped by to have a quick drink while waiting for our dinner reservation. It's a nice place with outdoor seating overlooking the town of Crested Butte. The Solstice was a very good beer.

Awesome time at the ELDO for red lady ball. We dressed in red for HCCA. Band was awesome and we had room to dance. Bartenders were attentive.

Came with the wife and kids for lunch after a morning of mountain biking. Great craft beers and food. Watching Elk Ave traffic from the deck in the fall sun was the icing on the cake. Fantastic place!
