3fourths (1569) Boulder, Colorado | January 10, 2005| Updated December 26, 2012
Located in a small strip mall area of this small ski-tourist town. The first time I visited there was a long wait for a table, that was at about dinner time, 5-6pm during the summer. Second time I visited was in the winter at about 4pm and it wasn’t crowded at all until about 5:30pm. Small bar located in the center of the restaurant floor. Nice people, and the happy hour food special were a big plus. Beer quality was decent. Drinkable but nothing you haven’t had before. Easy to find off of I-70 and worth a quick stop. However, this is not a brewery first, it’s a restaurant that hired a brewer, so beware.
The outdoor sitting is nice but may not be enough on nice sunny Colorado afternoon. Did not try the food, but it looked like the standard brewery fare. Beer was decent with 6 house brews on tap. Conviniently located right off of I-70.
It’s a beautiful sight here tucked away in a snowy mountain in the middle of winter. The brewpub itself was pretty stock. Typical ambiance with a very safe beer selection. There were five offerings covering the pale ale, wheat, amber, etc. styles. They were out of the IPA on my visit which would’ve been the most intersting beer. This was a short stop for a brew on my trek and it served that purpose.

Kinda fun place to stop by with a neat atmosphere. Beers are mediocre to average. If you’re staying in Vail, I’d stop by here for a sampler tray.
Cool little joint in Edwards, near Vail Valley/Beaver Creek. Fairly updated decor with an awesome outdoor space that is wonderful during the Summer months. Decent beer selection, with about 7-8 different beers on tap when I stopped in - I enjoyed their Belgian Pale Ale and Saison, the most; could have been the yeast they were using. Anyhow, the food was damn tasty, as well. Good wings, pizza, and burger. Good prices and great service. Worth checking out if you are in the area.
Finally got a chance to check this place out while heading home from Utah. Newly developed area was clean and neat. Nice ambiance in the bar, cozy and open. A lot of people on the patio in the 70-degree sun while I was there. Servers/bartenders seemed friendly and attentive. Overall, beers were pretty good ... I especially liked the pale. If you’re staying in Vail, it’s worth the short drive west. (Decent ice cream across the street, btw)
Right outside of Vail and Beaver Creek in the cool town of Edwards. As soon as you walk in you are hit with the aroma of Smooked meat and BBQ. They had a nice menu. Food was above average for a brewery. Beers were nice. Our waitress could care less about the beer. She was just there to make a buck. Next time I’ll try the bar. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.
Plenty of sports on TV here. Oh yeah, good beer selection too. They have their standards and a few seasonals that are a bit more daring. They have a great outdoor seating area but it is stuck in a strip mall. The staff was friendly and helped me out in a bind when I stopped in.
