This place seems to sell a lot of pizza. It feels welcoming and spacious inside, very restaurant-focused. The bar is tiny with only four seats. Service was friendly and efficient. They had three of their own beers along with about four quality guest taps. I thought the blonde and amber ales were a little rough around the edges. Didn’t eat on this visit, but it seems like a really good place to grab pizza.

more popular to townsfolk as a pizzeria than a brewery. small bar up front, 5-6 beer on tap, 1-2 seasonals/specials. busy at lunchtime on a friday. didn’t eat. drank a double ipa next to some locals with moustaches.
Great pizza and beer joint. Fun atmosphere, great beers with a decent house selection. Nice experimental varieties like the Green Chile Ale. If you are hanging out or passing through Salida this is a great stop.
The pizzas are great and the beers are very good. Service has always been superb. Prices don’t break the bank either.

Located downtown in a surprisingly vibrant area. Very busy when we were there mid-week in August 2010. Like a few before me noted, the ordering/seating process is a bit confusing but once you get the hang of it you’re ok. Large pizza list and 6-8 house beers. The pizza was very good and the IPA and oaked/smoked porter were solid. Purchased a chili beer to go-yet to have it. Overall a good experience and the service was good once seated. Recommended.
Busy little funky joint in the small town of Salida, nested between the Sawatch and Sangre de Cristo Ranges of Colorado. A little chaotic when you first walk in, as there’s a strange system of getting your seat, then returning to the entrance to place you order. Other than that, service was perfectly fine and everyone was friendly. Beer selection is limited to just the house’s own brews, but there were 6 or 7 different styles on tap when I stopped in. Great beers, everything available in a growler for just over $11. Starting to bottle their beers, but tonight only the green chile was available in a bomber. Expanded bottling and distribution would be awesome!
Back on point -- food is as good as just about any you’ll find in a brewpub, where beer should be the star. Goat cheese wood-fired pizza in rural(ish) Colorado? Sweet! A little pricey, but good quality stuff costs a bit more when you get away from the big city. If you’re ever in Salida, whether hiking or just passing through, be sure to eat and drink at Amicas!
Fun place in this small town. Good beers, great food and service.

Small local brewpub. Good selection of beer on tap (7 brews). Food was very good. Value and service were decent. Bartenders and waitstaff were busy but attentive and friendly. Didn’t really like the set-up of ordering before you sat down though. Green Chile beer and Headwaters IPA were very good.
Really enjoyed my stop here this past summer. Solid ales. Cool atmosphere, friendly service. I was there when they opened and a large line formed behind me. The locals obviously love this place, I would to. Amicas is an impressive establishment.
Quaint, nearly upscale brewery and eatery tucked in a sleepy little town. The interior is very nicely decorated with local artwork. Nice selection of 7 house beers on draught along with a wonderful wood-oven baked pizza. This is a nice watering hole stuck in central Colorado.
