This is a brewpub with typical old neighborhood bar ambiance. I had some amazing chicken parmesan pasta as the lunch special. The beer list is very safe, focusing on UK type stuff but there was an imperial stout available that was not shabby. Certainly the highlight of the list. Service was quite good.

This place is a setup like an Irish pub/sports bar and has a ton of tv’s throughout. Beer is very mediocre, but the food is awesome with service to match. Not top tier, but definitely one of the top spots in Pueblo.
I basically felt like I was in a dingy Irish pub that just happened to brew their own beer. Service was fine. Good deal on the sampler: $7 gets you 6 samplers, which on the day I went consisted of five regular rotation beers and my choice of one of three specialty beers (I went with the coffee stout, my favorite). The regular rotation beers ranged from ok to horrible. Another reviewer said it: many had a watered down feel to them. I didn’t try the food. On the one hand, the guy next to me said his steak was fantastic. On the other hand, he ordered two pints of the blonde lager, which I found atrocious. In all, if I ended up living in Pueblo, I’d probably homebrew rather than return. It just didn’t feel like my kind of place.
Visited Saturday afternoon, it was mostly empty. Very tasteful and spacious, but more flatscreens than a BestBuy. The main bar area was comfortable, everywhere else was unbearably hot. Had a sampler; all the beers seemed watered down... pale ale was the best one by far; porter was phenolic; blonde was bland and tart; wit was okay and very citric; red was flavorless; double red was buttery sweet. Ate the blandest buffalo wings I’ve ever tasted. There were a whole lot of staff/servers, all very friendly but not too attentive. On par with average boring chain brewpub.
This place is a solid brewpub, but it gets extra credit for being the only brewery in Pueblo. The food is really good. The beer/cheese soup is some of the best that I’ve had. The service is normally good. Their regular beers are good, but their seasonals are much better. They also have a well stocked bar, with several Irish whiskeys and bourbons.
The food is OK- nothing to go crazy about. I had a sampler of every beer they had on tap- I want to say about 12 or so at the time (the day before St.Patty’s). None of them I rated over a 6/10. None stood out- watery if you ask me. I’d pass the Shamrock if you’re looking for a microbrew to write home about.

Visited during the week. Decent amount of people in the brewpub, and service was good. Fair prices. Didn’t have any food. 7 beers on tap, which weren’t bad, but none of them really stood out.
Small brewpub in a town that does not offer much beerwise. Irish themed. 7 beers on tap. Had 4 of them and the American Pale Ale and Double Pale Ale were pretty good. Had all you can eat fish for $8.99 which was really good. Rest of food was pretty good. Would go back.
