“Great beer, ok food, bad service”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

This place will continue to thrive until they get competition. The beer is really good. The food is pricey for no thrill bar food. The atmosphere is that of a trailer park dive.
Here's our experience: walk in go upstairs. Meet a server at top to seat us. Asked for a booth by the window. She said we couldn't sit there. Thought that was weird, but whatever right.?! So we sat at a table and watched the 2 available booths sit there EMPTY for a long long time while wait for our Server. then they sat some locals that came in at the booth. SO....... If you are visiting this brewery, know that you are not welcome in this establishment. However........ What would YOU do for good hand-craft beer in a hippy town?...... That's what I thought! So here's my tip: buy the growler, fill it with good beer, head back to your motel, stopping at a McDonald's / or soup kitchen for better food and a way better atmosphere, and enjoy your colorado experience on your deck without the sacred window view of the go-cart track from the trailer park eatery.

“Beer is good. Ambiance is non-existant. Service sucks!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Beer is decent. Everything else is a complete disappointment. From the hostess who refused to give us a window booth (2 were unoccupied our entire visit), to the drab decor and 80's music, this place was screaming potential unrealized.

“Standard fare...”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is an interesting place to visit, but wouldn't make a special trip. the food is average at best and a little pricy. Beers are good...think that is their main focus.

“Beer was good, food was average.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stopped by for some lunch on Memorial Day and ordered several menu items. Nothing really stood out as fantastic but I guess it's a brewery so you shouldn't expect too much. The beer was good, however, some in our party ordered the Root Beer and found it to be too sweet and too licorice tasting.
