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.

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.
Quick visit for a couple of beers and some scran. Good rotisserie and slow cooked meats. Decent value. Really nice decor and ambiance. The beers are super clean tasting but nothing special. The wheat is lemony and along the same lies as blue moon. The Pilsner was crisp and refreshing but unspectacular.
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.
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.
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)

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.
