This is another pretty stock large brewpub/restaurant but not totally boring as they have some interesting decor around and a good view of the fermenters and a nice patio overlooking the distant mountains. The service was stellar at the bar during lunch hour. The food is above average with some interesting options on the menu. Itís a little pricy, but I would say worth what you get. The beer is definitely lacking, unfortunately. The six taps are very safe and predictable, and the quality of the beer is not up to snuff. The hefe and blonde ale left something to be desired.

Visited in late summer. Definitely a chain brewpub feel but this place has some nice attributes. patio looking at mountains. I had GREAT service from bartenders. salmon salad was very good. beer is average; not worth an out of way trip, but if you are in the area...

Pretty cool brewpub. Half the beers were average to good and the other half were rotten. Iíll definitely be back in the future to try their food.

I really wanted to like this Air Force heritage business, but Iím sad to say they donít deserve your business. Some of the worst service in any restaurant in Colorado Springs.
The beer isnít bad, but it isnít anything special either. Tried the 7258 (ho hum, a little too sweet and bland), the Panther IPA (not bad) and a special brew not on the menu and name escapes me (almost a porter dark ale style, a bit too much brunt flavor overwhelms the palate). No better than Judge Baldwins and not as good as Bristol, Rockbottom, or Phantom Canyon. The food is cheap--but it is cheap food. You arenít paying much but you arenít getting anything worth going out of your way for (and you certainly arenít getting anything worth the wait!). The salad was quite good but the entrees quite ordinary--hamburger not cooked as ordered, and chicken fried steak a long way from a good Texas chicken fried steak and skimpy on the cream gravy.
On a Friday evening, we waited for over 35 minutes for a table, while there were over a dozen tables empty and just sitting there. No explanation, nothing. People who arrived latter were waiting longer, and they never filled the tables. Talked to the manager after dinner, and he really seemed more interested in justifying himself than improving customer service. They havenít been open long and what is supposed to be one of there best beers was not available (and apparently they had been out last weekend also as the people next to use said "again this week" when they found out--they havenít been open that long!). Also, a glass of wine arrived with a huge amount of lipstick on the glass--it obviously had never seen the inside of a sink since its last use let alone a dishwasher. The server said "sorry" but I still paid for the glass of (replacement) wine; this is very low rent behavior on the part of the management. Any reasonably decent restaurant would have compíd the glass of wine. And that makes you wonder about the over all sanitary conditions of the kitchen and bar.

Nice building that looks like it belongs in a resort town, with loads of outdoor seating. The service is very attentive, and Andy the brewer may even happen by. The food is very good and not particularly overpriced. Nice mountain view from the patio.

Beautiful building and location, food delectable, the chicken fried steak is fantastic. Decent happy hour with a couple beers fitting my style. They are trying to catch up with demand on their beer selection, so the one you may love may be out for the night - but all in all an awesome place to hang out before or after a movie at the very nearby theater, or to just grab a bite and a beer.
