I think I actually saw the first giant billboard for this place somewhere in Missouri on I-44. A day and a half later, here I was. Iím not sure a brewery is a great idea for a roadside rest stop place, but maybe they draw locals too. On a Saturday at 1 in the afternoon there was actually a wait for tables, so that must be a good sign. Took a while for a bartender to appear at the bar that was adjacent to some carnival game. I only had one beer ... wasnít impressed with the beer. But I am impressed with the kitschy vibe here, and I suppose any beer geek that finds themselves in Amarillo by accident should stop by. Brewery #696.

What an odd place! A large dinner hall that is decked out in Western Decor to the extreme and in the center is the table where you try to eat their 72 oz steak in an hour. There is a bar available in the room removed from the dining hall. We sat in the dining room where service was fine but they werenít educated about the beer. There were 13 beers on tap and all available in an 11 dollar sampler. Food was solid and prices were high but you got a ton for it. What a weird place where beer is not the first priority.

Itís a tourist trap? OMG no way....
The place is HUGE, as it should be since it is a tourist trap. Pretty much empty when we got there for lunch. Restaurant on the right side, other stuff on the left. Service was awesome. He came around about 5-6 times before and during our meal and catered to us throughout our entire meal. Quality was pretty good, food was better than the beer. Beer selection was limited to their own beers which was a bit of a letdown. I got the whiskey BA oatmeal stout which was ok at best, very little whiskey. Food was awesome as expected. I got the 21oz Sirloin and it was perfectly cooked and tasted great. Prices were more than reasonable for what you get. Overall, yes it is a tourist trap but what were you expecting?

Stop by and visit, there arenít many places like this left. Have stopped by a few times while traveling. Once got to hoist the Stanley Cup (true!) and have picture taken while doing so. Once got to watch the 72 ounce steak challenge. This was the first time for beer. Donít know when they started brewing. Only had time (was driving) for one. The Pecan Porter was decent. You have to visit to appreciate this slice of Americana!

Gigantic tourist trap, but with enough charm and knack for customer service that customers feel compelled to return. A pretty impressive number and variety of their own beers--eleven, in fact. Gimmicky, but charming. Beware though, people still smoke inside here, which plays havoc with beer tasting.

This is a super touristy steak house-turned-brewpub in Amarillo, Texas. It is the home of a 72 oz. steak challenge (if you eat that in one hour, your name is immortalize in their winners list. The current record is held by Joey Chestnut). It is a total touristy-style cowboy ranch in terms of decoration. There is even an arcade-like game where you can shoot at stuff for like $2. The waiters are dressed in cowboy gear. The menu is all steakhouse type items. The food is ok, but overpriced for what it is. Now to the beer...They do brew their own beer, which is not great, but mostly itís pretty decent. Itís better than what you would expect from such a place. Most customers are of the Coors-in-a-bottle-because-draught-is-bad type, but whatever. Apparently, this is the only place for craft beer in Amarillo, so for that reason alone, it is worth it to come here!
