Visited on a Sunday afternoon. Wasn’t terribly busy (August). About 6 of their beers on tap and a couple of bombers available. One bomber was a collaboration with Casey Brewing. Didn’t have a lot of time. Would visit again.
Visited right after noon on a Sunday, I was the first visitor of the day. The entrance is shared with the Over Easy cafe (follow the stairs to the second floor). When visited, there were 6 Aspen beers on (including 10th Mtn Imp Stout and 10th Mtn Barrel Aged) plus a homemade root beer. In addition to samples and pints, they also offer growlers, bottles and cans to go. Service was prompt, though not really friendly (I’ll give the guy a break, he was busy opening the place, and I didn’t bother to engage). I can imagine this place gets jammed apres ski and on weekend nights. I enjoyed the Aspen beers, this is certainly worth hitting if you are in Aspen.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Their tasting room is located at 304 E Hopkins Ave, Aspen, Colorado.
They had ten of the their beers on tap with a few others in sixers and bombers to-go. Between my brother and I, we had four of their beers and all of them were good. It’s a small space so quite the slopes a little early to get a seat. They have live music on Fridays and Saturdays. A must-visit if you’re in Aspen for some good beer.
These guys have done a great job carving a niche for themselves in this high dollar town. They had some hassles to overcome when opening but now they are a staple, and last I heard expanding. A great hole to drink away your snowboarding pains or relive your glorious rides. Has a nice downhome feel that is certainly hard to find in Aspen. Definitely not uptight or pretentious. The beers are a little pricey but hey...it is still Aspen. You never know who you are sitting next to here...could be anyone. Can get crowded but an expansion should take care of that. Nice bartenders, good service.
Stopped in after hiking the Government Trail from Snowmass. Tried the Red, IPA and Pilsner; all fresh and reasonably priced. The place wasn’t very busy and chatted with the bartender and a girl from Texas while watching Le Tour. Outside second floor seating offers spectacular views. My only complaint was it seemed a bit rundown. They’ll be canning soon in the business park across from the airport so hopefully they can freshen it up.
LOVE this place. Every time I get to Aspen I am able to take my dog in sit and have a brew while visiting my brother in-law. The dog friendly alone makes it a true diamond in the rough when it comes to the Aspen elite scene. Never had a bad brew and servers are always friendly and close by :).

Kinda neat brewery to hit in Aspen. You can get a sampler tray that looks like a ski! The beers aren’t too shabby. The place is tiny and you may have to put up with Aspen snobs while there.
Shitters: have yet to visit

I hang out here often while i am in aspen because they are the only brewery in town, but also due to the fact that they brew some good beers. Duncan, Rory and Brad (owners) are great guys and very willing to chat about their beers. It is a very small and cozy place where the beer is brewed right next to where you sit down and enjoy it.Visiting this place is a must if you are staying in the Aspen/Snowmass area.
