I liked this place for a few reasons: It was not in Downtown Durango; our friend's dog could hang out with us on the patio; the beer was great; and the eggplant parmesan sandwich was delicious. We had a great evening. Service was mellow, but it fit the place. We would definitely go back when next in Durango.

Was happy to see folks our age late week. Good beer, better than Ska or the crowded one downtown (disappointing, rude staff).
Hire night crew of professional cleaners to get this place where it should be regularly, and you'll double your business.

In 1886, the "Durango Beer and Ice Company", changed its name to "Durango Brewing Company, and is now the third oldest microbrewery in Colorado. It is a small establishment; the type of place where you are treated equally whether a local or a visitor to Durango. There is no pretentiousness, and none of that, "you're not a local, so we can't be bothered to serve you" which is definitely what we experienced at another Colorado establishment in Dolores. We stopped by at around 1:30 pm on a Sunday, there were a few people in the patio area and inside; when we left around 3pm it had become quite busier. We seated ourselves, but a waitress came over immediately to take our drink orders. My hubby had a "Durango Dark" which he said was smooth, rich, creamy, a slight hint of chocolate, not very hoppy and absolutely delicious. The only non-alcoholic beverages are bottled iced teas or Zuberfizz sodas, and water of course.

The food menu is not large, and that ends up being a very good thing; what they do make is great! We began with the Buffalo Wings; deep fried, not baked with celery sticks and ranch dressing (bleu cheese also available). A perfect start off for wing lovers!

The waitress was very down to earth, pleasant and answered all our questions; again whether a local or visitor, she treated everyone well and checked to make sure we were all happy. At first I was going to order a burger, but spied the "Brew House Brat" on the menu. An El Dorado Cattle Company bratwurst made with Amber Ale, served with sauerkraut and pub chips. Oh my goodness, I ate the whole thing! The brat snapped when you bit into it and so juicy; the sauerkraut was fried up, not cold; the pub chips were out of this world...crispy on the outside with a soft center, no ketchup needed! My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Hubby ordered the "DBC Pub Burger", a 1/3 pound burger made with Texas Longhorn beef from the El Dorado Cattle Company (all DBC's meat menu items are from there) which comes with lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and your choice of cheese (hubby chose Cheddar); extra toppings can be purchased. This is a "Wow" burger; large and in charge, juicy, perfectly cooked (medium-well), not dry and packed with charcoal flavor from the grill. The kitchen is small, so we were able to see the flare up of the grill at one point, so knew when the menu said "char grilled" that that was no lie. A choice of side salad or pub chips comes with this burger.

Durango Brewing Company is a place where you can go with family and/or friends, have a drink or two, eat very good pub style food, and simply relax. There are some game machines in the pub and they do have Wi-Fi. Check it out!

Not the most amazing atmosphere, but a working brewery with good brews and decent food. And when you head to the bathroom, you can see the bottling process in action. Nice place to stop if you are heading north out of town.
