Description: We specialize in community. We are not a casual dining restaurant "concept", we are a small, no wait, "micro" town gathering place. We take pride in our wares both in the beer and food dept., and strive to make you comfortable whether you're local, or just visiting. We specialize in hand thrown, wood fired pizzas and calzones, locally sourced organic salads, and delicious hot sandwiches. We also produce nearly 800 kegs of beer a year right on premise, and have numerous varieties of handcrafted beer on tap at all times as well as several rotating seasonal ales, lagers, stouts. If you're looking for something like Chilis or Applebee's, I guarantee you will be disappointed, if you're ready to get to know Dolores, drink some of Colorado's finest handcrafted beer, and perhaps meet some new friends then you're in for a great time!

“Great pizza, great beer, local atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Trust the reviews!

Great beer, great pizza, great atmosphere. Trivial Pursuit to play at the bar while you're waiting. Seems like everyone there is a local and welcomed back with a smile.

Highly recommend the pale ale and the Chevy pizza.

“Great pizza, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

A local bar, with a pub feel. Great weekend atmosphere, with mixed ages and cultures at tables. Interesting beers, great pizzas. They also do take aways.

“Excellent pizza, mediocre calzone”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We ate here twice. The first time we ordered the build-your-own pizza and it was excellent. We also added a side salad which consisted of nothing more than lettuce, grated cheese, and croutons - about the most basic salad possible. The next time I had the calzone and it was mediocre at best. It was very greasy, not very tasty, and after ordering it I discovered that I had to pay $2 extra for marinara sauce, something that has always come with every calzone that I've ordered at any other restaurant.

“Favorite pub in SW Colorado!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just moved to this area (a.k.a the end of the earth) last year, and am so pleased to report that in this unlikely place, there is an excellent pub with excellent food and some amazing talent: some local, some from out yonder. In the summer, the outdoor stage provides a nice back drop as you sit on boulders or at the patio tables under the aspens, nestled in the courtyard behind the pub. This winter we have enjoyed some really fabulous music inside, too. Later at night it can get a bit crowded, but never so much that a person couldn't dance, if he were so inclined. The calzones are big enough for 2 people to split, and are worth the bit of extra time it takes to make them.

“Now this is a Colorado Brewery.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

On the recommendation of a local, we visited this brewery for some woodfired pizza, salads, and a pint (or two). Super-friendly staff showed us the way around the brew options and we settled on a terrific Dry Stout. The pizza with pesto, canadian bacon and onions and other good things was plenty for two to share. We each had a salad as well. This is a fun little brewery with great beer, a family-like atmosphere and good pizzas. I understand they also have musicians some nights, but they weren't playing on the Sunday night that we were there. I would definitely recommend this place!
