Recently acquired a new tank so Brewmaster has capability to offer an additional seasonal brew. Most recent is IPA. Hoppy and good. Pale, Stout (finished w/ chocolate) and Red are highly recommended. Food has gone downhill due to cost-cutting but making a recovery w/ staff creativity. Some items are better than others (Ahi sandwich, Artichoke dip, pizzas). Good bartenders. Recommend sitting at bar over a table. One additional tank would be excellent to allow for more selection on a regular basis.
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.
Stopped here enroute to Utah. Just opened for lunch when we arrived. Cool building -- we sat at the bar. Good beer and food was even better. Wish we could have stayed and imbibed longer.... recommended.
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.
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.
I’ve been enjoying this place for a year or two now. It has a nice airy atmostphere, and it’s a nice place to hang out for a beer or two. They have great burgers, and the beers are decent, but not outstanding. Their Powder Day Pale is probably the best, followed closely by the Biker Stout. The Honey Ale is interesting, the Red is sub-standard, and the Wheat is simply a poor substitute for a true German wheat beer.
Neat little brew pub I visited minutes after enjoying the fine beers @ Crazy Moutain Brewing Company, which is a literal 1 minute drive down the road. Got a flight of 4 of their beers for 6.50, decent value. All in all the beers were okay, including a belgian brown, their red ale, pale, and expresso stout (this dissapointed this most, all head no taste). Got some apetizers, the wings were phenomenal, some of the best i’ve had and id reccomend that a pint of red ale to go with it. All in all a nice place with a clean atmopshere, lots of tvs, and an extensive food menu with a small but craft filled tap list.
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)
