Visited with two friends on October 9, 2012 when driving from Denver to Estes Park. Stayed for a few samples of beer but didnít eat. Good service, nice selection of the standard beers and some seasonals. We sat downstairs at the bar. Nice small town too. Iím glad we made the trip there.

Visit on recent trip. Stopped by for dinner. Busy but they handled it well. Enjoyed the flight of their brews. Service was excellent. Think it would be a great place on a night when they have live music.

Looks like a good family restaurant located in a small town. Everyone here looks happy. Employees look like they enjoy their job. The sever was Very knowledgable on their selection. We ordered a sampler of all their beers. The food was better than expected. I had cranberry chipotle wings which were sweet and spicy. Enchalada was made right with corn tortilla instead of wheat and was delicious. Service was fast. Loved this place, would come back often if I could but I live in Florida. It's the kind of place I wish I could find in Florida.

Visited 7/12. Short wait and shown right into the second story pub thatís clearly a hit with local families. Overlooks a little park. Beer was all the majors with two rotating: priscilla wheat and one nut brown. Enchiladas were spicy and great (especially to a florida boy) and wings had an amaZing cranberry chipotle. Fries were great too. Very great place, glad to see it retain local charm despite growing distribution.

(Visited 07/2010): Oskar Blues Grill is in downtown Lyons on Main Street. Parking is fairly abundant in the surrounding lots.
The interior is split into an upstairs and downstairs. I only glanced downstairs but it looks like a bar and music venue, whereas the upstairs is more of a "sit-down" restaurant with a smaller bar. After walking past a small gift shop and up a few stairs, the space has a good sized table seating area on the left and a small bar on the right. There is an eclectic array of decor, including artwork, license plates, portraits, etc with a rustic and worn-in smokehouse flavor underneath it all. The available brews are listed on a board behind the bar.
As for the beers, there is a pretty good array (9 taps), and a sampler is available for $1/beer. On top of a few of the regular OB brews like Old Chub and Daleís, there were several on tap I had not seen before, from Leroy and Short Bus to Priscilla Wheat and Viking Malt Liquor. All of the beers were above average. One minor disappointment was no Ten Fidy, but the servers were able to suggest a couple places to look for cans.
Speaking of service, it was good on our visit. Our server was punctual and brought samples of everything, going past what was allotted on the tray.
The food at Oskar Blues is pretty good. We both had barbecue (ribs, pulled pork) and were satisfied.
Overall this place is well worth the drive from Denver to visit.

Came here on a visit from Michigan. The bar is cool and pretty fun. Not a whole lot of beer selection, but it was all pretty good. It was a fun stop, and recommended to all.

This is a pretty beautiful place to have a beer, especially if you sit out on the porch with the mountain view. When I went I have to admit service was pretty bad - I think itís family run and most of the servers / busboys were kids, who seemed really stoned, and kept messing up orders. However, I did not come for the food, but for the beer, which is great. OB is one of my favorite CO breweries and its great to have their portfolio consolidated for you on draft, plus, they always have a couple offering available only on draft here and not in stores. Everything is priced right and overall I plan on returning. Iím sure the service isnít consistently like it was.

OB is a fun place to go. They have their regular beers plus a couple specials. The food is good cajun/southern/bar food. They are have music frequently (bluegrassy).

Hippie joint in a hippie town. A lot of hoppy brews and mostly above average beers (albeit overrated by most commentators). Itís a short trip from Boulder, so I would recommend stopping by here if youíre touring Boulder breweries. Maybe hit this place for lunch, head to Boulder (around 20 minutes), hit Upslope, then Twisted Pine, then Boulder Brewery, and then the Pearl St breweries (Mtn Sun, Draft House, Walnut, BJs).

Two nice patios with slow service and smokers but great sun and tunes. Cozy bars upstairs and down. Classic video game room with black lights. Within listening distance from concerts in the park. Well lit seating areas and friendly staff. Needs a bed and breakfast upstairs.
