Fun atmosphere and pretty good beers! The $5 flights are a great deal and the patio is super nice! Definitely would recommend a stop if you're in Durango.

We always make a stop at Ska whenever in the area. The tap room offers a wide selection of their available beers and are now offering more pours from their in-house experimental Mod Brewery. They put as much thought and effort into the food as they do their beer. The Container Kitchen is excellent and has a wide selection to... More

On a quick trip to the Durango Co., Aztec NM area, ate dinner here one night with my Daughter and Son in law. Very good pizza, but what really stood out to me was the very friendly, helpful service. These people deserve a pat on the back.

The concept was good, but the only good thing was the beer. Food was not good. And they had 2 patrons outside w put bulls off leash. They're dog friendly, which our two boxers appreciated, but we were uncomfortable and wound up leaving bc of this.

The Ska brewery tap room long hosted a local restaurateur's satellite facility on their premises to provide food at lunchtime. A couple of years ago Ska bit the bullet and created their own food service, "The Container of Food", in their tap room. Had my first chance to eat there the other day, and was very pleased. Of course the... More

I love to visit quality craft breweries, so Ska seemed like a natural place for us to check out. We were visiting the area and friends of our's from Pagosa Springs also raved about it. We were not disappointed. I ended up getting an Imperial IPA and a different IPA that was slightly heavier than their flagship Modus Hoperandi. Both... More

Go here now. Take your dog, sit outside, and enjoy great beer. Warehous-y, industrial type building, lots of locals with well-mannered dogs sitting outside, and equal number of people enjoying food and beer inside. Would strongly recommend the Pils World pilsner, Rudi session IPA, Euphoria pale, Modus Hoperandi, and my personal favorite for warm weather swilling, Mexican Logger.

This is a very slick, cool industrial space that I found very attractive. . . the staff were quite pleasant, and I liked several of their beers. The food (which seems to be a separate entity in house) was disappointing. Neither of us cared for what we had.. . .They had an attractive outside area for cooler days.

Thanks for the review. We're glad you enjoyed our beers and facility, but sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the food from the Container. We do have a rotating seasonal menu based on local available ingredients and hope you come back again soon. Cheers! More

Our second trip to Ska passing through Durango. Great Caesar salad and Jerk Chicken sandwich and fries. A pint of Rudies Sessions topped it off. Everyone friendly and mellow.

"It takes characters to brew beer with character." Brewing in Durango, Colorado since 1995. We call it a tasting room because that's what you'll want to do here. Flagships, seasonals and unique beers that only a few ever get to try-they're all on tap here for your tasting indulgence. It's a modern-day tasting room experience with a casual food truck culture. Make yourself at home. Grab a seat anywhere you'd like, check out the upstairs, join the community, start a conversation-make new friends! There's beer at the bar and vittles at The Container of Food. If you're unfamiliar, we're a manufacturing facility. We brew beer-a lot of beer. We put it in cans and bottles for sale around the globe. There's a lot going on here! If you want to learn more, we offer free tours of our fantastical 100% wind-powered brew fortress at 4p Monday through Saturday. Oh, and there's a beer garden too! With green grass and delicious food. All the makings of a pretty amazingsome day.
