Nice place to stop by on your way back from skiing. Idaho Springs is a cool little mountain town and Tommyknocker has a cool atmosphere as well. They usually have around 8-12 beers on tap. Most of their beers are hit or miss for me. Some good ones and some not so good ones.

Nice place to stop off of I-70. Selection a little limited. Service was decent. Stopped by for lunch. Very crowded by noon. Worthwhile.

I visited with my wife on the way back from the mountains. There wasnít really a brewery tour available, which was unfortunate. I had a black rye IPA which was quite tasty, and my father in law had a brown ale, which was okay. The ambiance was a little forced with all the miner regalia, but who really cares about that. It was a cool place, much larger than I would have expected and almost had a sports bar feel to it (of course the Broncos were playing that day, so maybe thatís not usual).

Brewpub in the old goldmine town Idaho springs. Very big place, old mining tools and stuff used for decoration. 12 taps, samplers offered, beers is ok, nothing outstanding. Stopped for lunch and got a burger whichwas pretty good.Fast and friendly service, fairly priced. Well worth stopping by

A bit of a dark set location with the brewery open and close to some of the places where you can eat. I like exposure to the brewery, but sometimes the smells that emanate from a brew donít always go well when youíre eating. Their food was good, friendly staff. I would describe their beers as fair.

A good brew pub in an old mining area. Idaho Springs is a quaint little mountain town and this was the main attraction for me. Went here with the Scotts on a trip to Arvada and Denver in 2011.

I always enjoy stopping in here. All Tommyknocker beers on tap including seasonals. They may not have the best beers but theyíre decent. Idaho Springs is a cool little old mining town worth swinging through on the way to summit county. Honestly I think this was one of my first brewpub experiences on a family ski trip as a teen. Food is decent a little expensive, I recommend the Duck Wings. Service is friendly and down to earth. Make sure not to stop in on the weekends as this place gets crowded with annoying tourist passing through.

The first few times I stopped by this brewery I was driving to one of the amazing mountain towns of Colorado. So naturally a brewery on the way, I stopped in for a taste. I found the service to be up tight, expensive food, and poor beer quality. But on my most recent trip through there I was pleasantly surprised to discover a revamping of their old look and a new selection of beer. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the server gave up to 3 free beer tastes, and the tap selection and specialty bottle, only at the brewery, was delightful. The price of food is still a little high, but if you have had bad things to say about this brewery in the past you need to stop through again and reevaluate because they are making amazing changes in the right direction.

Worth stopping by on the way back from skiing or if you need a stop while driving through the Rockies. I especially enjoy their Imperial Nut Brown. Thereís some pretty decent beers here.
