The last reviewer has no clue on quality!!
Steamworks has and has had the best selection on brews in Durango since 1999. The food here is killer too and always served by a talented team of staff. No other brewery in the area can compete!
This is a large, spacious brewpub with a clean and ski-town-type ambiance. There was a large selection of their beers available with anything from chili beer to nitrogenated IIPA to Belgian styles. The service during lunch was great at the bar. I had chicken green chile potato soup with tasty beer bread. There were a lot of people coming in to eat lunch and get food to go as well as a handful of patrons at the large bar. This is just kind of a standard brewpub, but it really excels at being just that.
This was always a regular place for the wife and I to visit when we came to town, and now that we live in Durango, it is still our go to place if we want good beer and good food. The service is usually above Durango standards, and the bartenders are always friendly. Contrary to previous reviewers, I have never had issues with their beers giving intestinal issues. When I have visitors coming to town, I will always take them to Steamworks for dinner and a few beers!
Had a great flight, pretty big place for the town, I tried the food and it was excellent, I will go back anytime, I know it can be a bit crazy some days and it is not inexpensive but I think the quality is there.
Love this place--a must if you are anywhere near Durango. The atmosphere is great, cool and urban, large with high ceilings and a long bar conducive to alone or friends. Durango itself is pretty cool--a small town but relatively sophisticated, liberal, not insular. And the real reason to come is that they are serious about brewing. Had some of the better beers I’ve had in a while here, they are pushing boundaries and impressing palates without being gimmicky. Would go back in a second.
Whoa! Best brewpub of the trip by far. A wide range of very interesting beers that are of above average to very good quality. The food choices are excellent and the execution goes far beyond what you’ll see in 95% of brewpubs and even restaurants. The best spot in Durango, and worth a detour if you are anywhere nearby.
Great beer selection, with a decent selection of southwest cuisine and good homemade pizza. I particularly enjoyed their big hoppy ales. The Conductor IPA was my favorite but I enjoyed most of the beers I had. Not the best brewery I have ever been to but it was pleasent suprise. I was in Durango for 3 days and I stopped by twice! The deck was beautiful in the late summer.
