This is an old brewpub with furnishings that show its age, but I think that gives the place a little character. The wooden bar is relatively small with a couple TVs behind. There is a large patio outside and plenty of seating in the dining area. The selection of beers was respectable. They covered their bases pretty well. I only tried the jalapeno stout on my visit and it was a well made beer. Beers run $4.50 a pint which is very fair. Decent stop, especially given the town itís in.

Visited for lunch on a Friday. The place is much larger than it looks from the outside, with a nice patio out front, a bar area as you enter, and a large restaurant area past the bar. 7 beers available on draft, with cans of the Helles, Dunkel and Pilsener available to go in cans. The food menu is traditional brewpub; the dry rub Cajun wings were great. Service was friendly, fun and attentive. Pug Ryan also runs the Tiki bar at the Dillon marina, which is a great spot.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

A large and rambling place with a nice vibe. Very friendly staff with good knowledge of the beers being served. Flights of 5 four oz pours available. We only tried the baked stuffed mushroom appetizer, but it was very good. Of the three summit county breweries, this was our favorite.

Cool place in Dillon down the street from Keystone and not far from Breckenridge. I liked the atmosphere that had a style of the old west with a touch of a hunting lodge. Plenty of beers on tap to try, and while not amazing, I did enjoy them more than anything on tap at Dillon Dam, Backcountry, and Breckenridge. Good variety of styles and solid recipes. Didnít try food, but the menu had some things that sounded delicious. Cool place and my top choice of the few brewpubs in Summit County. Seemed less touristy than the others as well with a group of local regulars filling out the bar. A place Iíll certainly go back to while in the area.

Cool little joint right down the road from Dillon Dam Brewery. Decor is very mountain lodgey, but they recently renovated and they have a much larger bar area and outdoor space, which is great during the summer. Didnít eat but got a chance to try a number of different beers - all of which were very solid. The quality of beers at this place was very surprising and it is definitely worth checking out. Cool atmosphere and if you only have time for one stop in Dillon, make it this place and scroll past Dillon Dam Brewery.

Nice steakhouse that also brews their own beers. The steak I had was very good and the beers werenít too bad.

so itís a brewery in a double-wide, crowded with locals, offering a somewhat wide selection of styles but they absolutely dropped the ball on their saison and pils. not a good sign. loud, crowded, low-ceilinged interior and an american pub fare menu that made me lose my appetite.

I had very good seafood here and the beers were quite tasty also (surprisingly). If youíre in the area and you donít mind blowing a little dough on dinner, you can have a great time here. By the way, very cool atmosphere.

Pretty pricey place but hey, itís Colorado and it was ski season. Food was excellent and our server was awesome. The beer was fresh (Pale Ale) and good. I preffered this place to the Dam Brewery. Iíd definetly go again.

I almost didnít go here because of the bad reviews on this site, but I did anyway because Dillon Dam brewery boes not fill up other breweriesí growlers. In fact, they gave me a little hell about it here, but still filled up my growler for $7.00, which was a good price. I liked the atmosphere, I didnít think it was too dark at all. The bartender and someone I took to be the brewer or owner seemed pretty cool. I didnít eat here, but it smelled really good. Their beer selection was not great, they had their Pilsner, Nitro Porter, Scottish Ale, and Pale ale on tap. I had my growler filled with the Scottish Ale, and it was very good. They did tell me that there would be a Saison coming out soon for seasonal release.
