Free samples, ver nice. Only had 4 taps when I was there, though. Building is kind of old but it looks like itís kept up nice. Didnít have any food. Probably a good place to go in Estes Park to get away from the hordes of tourists.

Very polite staff will let you sample all of their brews for free; donít forget to go upstairs, they had 3 different brews not offered downstairs. Plenty of bottles to go including some not on tap plus the 10th Anniverssary brew. Very nice town on the way to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Dropped by in October 2002. Little attention given to the decor, but who cares. The food, beer and service were all average. Revisited April 2006. More like below average. Beers were OK.

It was a few years ago that I visited, but this has to be the worst brewery Iíve ever been to. As others have said they will pour samples for you. I could not believe it, but the samples I had were skunked. That told me all I needed to know. Iím surprised it is still open.

This place is like a converted warehouse - very industrial feeling. First thing to mention - when you walk in - donít go upstairs where the food/bar is - just go straight to the back of the room - thereís a bar there where you can sample all of their beers - FOR FREE! (but tip the bartender - when I was there, he was the only friendly and informative person in the building!) Upstairs is a big open room - smoking/non-smoking is only differentiated by a couple of signs. Food was greasy and mostly bland. I asked for a sampler - luckilly, the waitress told me that I could pay 50 cents per sample or go downstairs and get it for free. There were 2 brews on tap upstairs that were not available downstairs. You can also buy single bottles and six packs to go. I picked up a bottle of their barrel aged stout - saving it for winter 2004.

This place has serious potential, but, itís fairly mediocre. I agree with Aubrey on most of his points. I havenít had any food here yet, though.

I want to love this place so much ... itís location, itís history. But I just canít. The ambiance is far from what I look for in a brewpub. It feels kind of like an oversized trailer home ... that just kept getting added onto. Decor is all over the place, and the murals make me feel weird. On many occasions we received horrible service. One time we almost walked out because nobody came to take our order ... and when I donít get a beer in a brewery within the first 10 minutes, I begin to sweat and tremble. Some of the Estes beers are pretty good, though. Samson Stout comes to mind. The food needs some serious improvement, though. Iím not being sarcastic or mean, either; just being honest.
