Just happened to wander into this little brewery after leaving the Ouray Brewery. Stopped in just to see what they had. My husband and I somewhat consider ourselves beer snobs. This place did NOT disappoint !! I drank the Porter and he had the IPA which he claims is his favorite beer of our trip (we visited multiple breweries and... More

Beer lovers; best around, hands down. My wife and I stopped here and had an Amber and a Brown, we each loved both. Went great with the excellent burgers from next door.

Funky place where beer is on the menu, food next door at Maggie's. When it's warm the deck is in the afternoon sun, very nice to people watch.

"Go where the locals go," likely the best piece of advice on my travels. I was pointed to the Ourayle House, which continues to occupy a special place in my heart. The fire blazed on a wintery January eve. Among conversation from town locals were topics of politics, love, wilderness and taxes. Hutch accommodated me with the Princess sized cup... More

The sarcasm part even comes free. A couple of new friends from the ice park suggested we meet them at Ourayle for a beer and I didn't quite realize we were in for such an experience. But first things first, I really enjoyed the beers and I tried more than one. You've got a half dozen options of beers in... More

We liked the beer the last two times we were here when it was still on the side street. This time we tried three different ones and they were all marginal. The last place was quirky and weird. Now it is just dirty and strange. It seems like it is trying to be a real mountain bar like the old... More

The brewmaster is grumpy and doesn't really care if he gets your business or not, but that is part of the charm. You must read their website! We've been here 3 times and been served twice...the first time we were told he was too busy brewing to serve us. Don't expect friendly customer service, instead pure sarcastic service. But there...
