Right off I-70 just west of Denver, this is a decent enough brewpub, although really nothing too spectacular. They have some decent beer from time to time.

This is a smallish dark establishment in a mining town. The restaurant was somewhat loud and had patrons of all walks. The service was poor. They had the regular line up plus three additional beers available; I always like to see things other than standard beers on tap. The food was poor and the menu had way too many items; it is clear that they do not do any one item real good. I would not make a special trip to stop here.

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.

Beautiful town, cool brewery. Their beers arenít spetacular, but I love them for some reason. A definite stop after BoJeauís Pizza, which is a couple buildings down.

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.

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

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

Very nice palce to drink and to eat too. NIce prices and interesting decoration. I like the sympathy of the waiters and the Welsh memorabilia they have.

Tommyknocker beers make it all the way to my home in Wisconsin, where they arenít well thought of. I ended up at the brew-pub by accident and coincidence, and while the place was OK, the relative lousiness of the beers sort of negatively colored my view of the brewpub. I donít know much about CO, or about the west in general. But Idaho Springs felt weird to me...on the one hand it was a backwards little WV coal mining town, on the other, it is full of yuppies. The brewery is a bit like the town a bit run down. Beers were not good. Food was marginal. Service was below average. I will not be returning, and I will be avoiding Tommyknocker beers from here on out.

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.
