“There is not much in Buena Vista but this bar has 16 taps, and 14-15 of those are craft. One Soulcraft beer on, four or five from Elevation, and a variety of others. Wifi is available, which matters because most cell phones will not have service in Buena Vista. Food looked good. Small sidewalk seating area, music some evenings.“

“Great mountain town vibe here. Small place with two good parioa. Ten or so taps, with a variety of styles, all quality. Around twn ciders i bottles, and several spirs and saison in bottles. This is not a large selection, and if you cannot find somethi g on tap, there is an option of buying an expensive bottle or going elsewhere. Bartender was the only staff i saw, and he was friendly. This probably the best option for craft beer in town.“

“I believe this is one of the few places outside of Salida to serve beer from the new Soulcraft Brewery (X-Ray IPA and Coconut Milk Stout), alongside selections from Elevation, Bull & Bush, and Moonlight Pizza. Quality kitchen with locally-sourced ingredients, good attention to detail with their dishes, creative and diverse use of vegetables, and the wall menu up front lists what is available gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian.“

“A nice second location in Buena Vista that serves as their production brewery. The menu is a bit smaller than the original location but there is more room here. Street parking can be a challenge, but who’s afraid of a short walk? Excellent service inside at the bar and outside on the picnic tables.“

“Eddyline is the neighborhood brewpub in this tourist mountain town. The dining room is minuscule with lots of outdoorsy, mountain decor. I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as the quality of the beer. It turned out to be very good. They have five or six flagships and just a few rotating seasonals. There were three guest taps on, but nothing particularly exciting. The artichoke dip was excellent. It’s apparent they put effort into their food menu. It’s very nice to have this place in a small tourist town.“

“The location in South Main is great - right next to the park and Arkansas River. The food selection is good and high quality. I like how they use local produce and meats. Beers are usually good with seasonal options. They just added homemade sodas which are excellent. Overall a great place in a beautiful location.“

“Small town brewpub in the mountains. Pizza was ok. About six beers and they seem to be on permanently, with no rotating or special taps mentioned by the waitress. Small place, very loud music.“

“typical small town brewpub experience in the west, but located in a strange movie-set second downtown in buena vista, seemingly built out of a grass field and surrounded by empty lots and cul de sacs. typically poor beer quality. overly sweet with flabby texture. the bar area was uncomfortable and the interior seemed like a mock-up.“

“I visited this place with grant on a camping trip. This place is definitely off the beaten path, and it appears to be a cornerstone in the development of a new, trendy part of Buena Vista. When we arrived, there were 4 Ferraris parked on the street. There was a bit of a line when I got there (5-10 minute wait). Plenty of indoor seating, with patio seating, too. The bar is to your right on the inside. There appeared to be a bit of a staffing shortage. The menu is heavy on pizza and Italian food. I had the Hawaiian pizza, which was fantastic. Similar, but better than Russian River’s. It took about an hour to get our food, though. Unfortunately, they only had 4 beers on tap, but they were pretty darn tasty. Our waitress was a bit flaky, but she was likely overworked on a busy holiday weekend with a staff shortage. All in all, the beer is good and the food is tasty, and the views are amazing. I enjoyed this place.“

“Newer facility down by (not on) the river just east of the old downtown. Just keep driving till the road ends. Went there twice with my son. Sort of outdoors sports oriented theme with plenty of outdoors seating. Very busy both nights we went in. Food is limited to pizzas and such. We had pizza and it was very good. Beers were limited to just 4 house beers. The brewing area is very small but the brewer said they were going to start brewing off-premises and expand the bar area. The IPA was very solid while the Pale Ale was refreshing if not quite memorable. If in BV a good place to stop in for beer and pizza. The modest number of house beers knocks this down a bit but don’t let this keep you away.“

“This brewery sits a few blocks off the main drag in BV, and if you did not know it was here, you probably would never find it. I do recommend you find it though. I have two complaints about this place: the prices are a little high and they typically only have 4 or 5 house beers. The food is very good, better than most brewpubs, and the regular line-up of beer is solid.“

“Decent pub/restaurant style setting in a newly renovated area of Buena Vista. Good service. Nice selection of their own beers. Decent prices. Didn’t try the food.“
