Whoa! Best brewpub of the trip by far. A wide range of very interesting beers that are of above average to very good quality. The food choices are excellent and the execution goes far beyond what you’ll see in 95% of brewpubs and even restaurants. The best spot in Durango, and worth a detour if you are anywhere nearby.
Industrial decor set in a nice old mountain town. Good selection of beer, some of which are available bottled. Good food. Went there with Josh N., Josh W., and Nick C. after ASEH in 2011 on our way to the Great Sand Dunes.
Love this place--a must if you are anywhere near Durango. The atmosphere is great, cool and urban, large with high ceilings and a long bar conducive to alone or friends. Durango itself is pretty cool--a small town but relatively sophisticated, liberal, not insular. And the real reason to come is that they are serious about brewing. Had some of the better beers I’ve had in a while here, they are pushing boundaries and impressing palates without being gimmicky. Would go back in a second.

Sat on their patio on a sunny october afternoon and enjoyed a few brews, including an excellent IPA and one of the best stouts I have ever had. My food review is based only on their great pizza. Good service.
stopped in 7/17/10. this place really reminds me of tempe four peaks... warehouse type building with a giant patio and no walls. decent service and laid back atmosphere but a mediocre set of ten or so beers.
Great food. Ok beer, awesome atmosphere in the beautiful mountain city of Durango. Located in downtown Durango, you should make it a point to stop by and grab a burger and a beer. This is a great place to even bring your family.
This was always a regular place for the wife and I to visit when we came to town, and now that we live in Durango, it is still our go to place if we want good beer and good food. The service is usually above Durango standards, and the bartenders are always friendly. Contrary to previous reviewers, I have never had issues with their beers giving intestinal issues. When I have visitors coming to town, I will always take them to Steamworks for dinner and a few beers!
Stopped by for a nightcap on a Saturday at 8pm. Was able to get a seat at the bar. Large place with peanut shells on the floor (and they let all the kids draw with chalk on the floor as well - great for all of us parents with small kids!). 10 beers on tap including serveral seasonals.
