First, the beer is great! Being there when they have just tapped a brand new batch of vanilla Porter or 471 IPA is fantastic! No brew pub should have bad beer. The atmosphere is great, with the best views of any brewpub that I have visited. The food is good, and extremely reasonably priced *for a mountain town*. The staff can be a little slow, but so what? If you are there, you are on vacation; slow down and get into mountain time. If you are in a hurry and want chain restaurant efficiency, speed of service, and complete lack of soul then head over to Dillon-they have a Ruby Tuesday’s that will be right up your alley.
Very packed, great nachos. We went on my boyfriends 21st birthday and got to sit on the upper level which was overlooking everything, so pretty cool. It was very loud, but it you have the opportunity to visit it’s worth it.
Visited in December 2005...very nice setup with tables around the outside of the brew pub with the bar and brewing equipment in the center. Had the Christmas Ale, Lucky 7, and Oatmeal Stout. All were very good as was the artichoke dip w/ deep fried tortillas. Highly recommended.
