Quaint, nearly upscale brewery and eatery tucked in a sleepy little town. The interior is very nicely decorated with local artwork. Nice selection of 7 house beers on draught along with a wonderful wood-oven baked pizza. This is a nice watering hole stuck in central Colorado.

Sep 06: This is a groovy little place in a quiet town away from the rush in Colorado. They just have a tiny little bar and Iíd say the emphasis is on their wood-fired pizzas and other food. But they were pouring about 8 beers the day I visited, and for the most part they were pretty good. The restaurant is inside a restored older building with a cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. Definitely worth the drive.

Located downtown in a surprisingly vibrant area. Very busy when we were there mid-week in August 2010. Like a few before me noted, the ordering/seating process is a bit confusing but once you get the hang of it youíre ok. Large pizza list and 6-8 house beers. The pizza was very good and the IPA and oaked/smoked porter were solid. Purchased a chili beer to go-yet to have it. Overall a good experience and the service was good once seated. Recommended.

Nice place in a neat, up-and-coming town. Passing through sleepy Salida one could easily mistaken the area for being desolate with nothing to do. Head any which way into the mtns, though, and your options are endless. Anyway, this place offered welcome respite, with good food, good service, a comfortable atmosphere, and tasty beer (nothing over-the-top, but a lot of drinkable stuff). Prices were very reasonable, too. With so many fourteeners in the area that Iíve yet to climb, Iím sure Iíll be back.

Really enjoyed my stop here this past summer. Solid ales. Cool atmosphere, friendly service. I was there when they opened and a large line formed behind me. The locals obviously love this place, I would to. Amicas is an impressive establishment.

Great pizza and beer joint. Fun atmosphere, great beers with a decent house selection. Nice experimental varieties like the Green Chile Ale. If you are hanging out or passing through Salida this is a great stop.

Small local brewpub. Good selection of beer on tap (7 brews). Food was very good. Value and service were decent. Bartenders and waitstaff were busy but attentive and friendly. Didnít really like the set-up of ordering before you sat down though. Green Chile beer and Headwaters IPA were very good.

Busy little funky joint in the small town of Salida, nested between the Sawatch and Sangre de Cristo Ranges of Colorado. A little chaotic when you first walk in, as thereís a strange system of getting your seat, then returning to the entrance to place you order. Other than that, service was perfectly fine and everyone was friendly. Beer selection is limited to just the houseís own brews, but there were 6 or 7 different styles on tap when I stopped in. Great beers, everything available in a growler for just over $11. Starting to bottle their beers, but tonight only the green chile was available in a bomber. Expanded bottling and distribution would be awesome!
Back on point -- food is as good as just about any youíll find in a brewpub, where beer should be the star. Goat cheese wood-fired pizza in rural(ish) Colorado? Sweet! A little pricey, but good quality stuff costs a bit more when you get away from the big city. If youíre ever in Salida, whether hiking or just passing through, be sure to eat and drink at Amicas!
