Visited during the lunch hour and the place was busy. Waitress did her best to keep up. Only 3 of their beers on tap during my visit. Guest beers were excellent. The 3 that I sampled were average at best, with the Cherry Wheat way below average. Food was decent as were the prices. Next time I will probably pass.
Pretty cool smokehouse and brewery in Nederland. Outside patio seating out back overlooking Boulder Creek. A good selection of good and even vegetarian options. Five brews on tap and guest bottles available.
Visited on 10/11/12. GABF Week. (Stop #1 of the day)
Our group wanted to take it easy after hitting it hard the previous day and decided a nice drive into the mountains would be relaxing.
A: The place is very cozy and has a very laid back atmosphere. This brewpub fits in perfectly into a quiet artisan town. The bar is somewhat small and can hold about 5-6 people with about a dozen tables downstairs, more upstairs and a nice back patio that has another 8-10 tables.
Q: The beers were decent from the two I had, no complaints from the group as everyone seemed to like their selections from the in house beers. The guest taps were also not very common especially from local CO breweries too.
S: Our waitress was extremely friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable about the in house and guest taps.
S: They had 4 in house taps and another 6-8 guest taps from other Colorado breweries but a nice array of the various styles.
F: Everyone loved what they ordered and it hit the spot as we were all starving...the smoked brisket and pork were just outstanding...nothing fancy, very rustic....perfect for the area.
V: Pints were all reasonably priced between 4-5 bucks, food dishes were all under 10 bucks...totallly worth it.
Overall, we didnt expect much when we arrived and there had been no reviews of the place for three years so we didnt know what to expect....I will say this, for GABF 2013, we will be back.
Nice building, awesome back deck to hangout on in the summertime and a great indoor seating. The place can be very crowded though and it can take quite awhile for your food. Staff is generally friendly and helpful. Prices are a bit steep for the portions that you get. Beer is okay, nothing great, nothing horrible. It is very inconsistent too, so you may not like it one time and think itís good the next. Itís decent.
Went here on a day of in October 2012. Was the perfect day, not too chilly or cold. Sun was peaking out. Sat on the back deck and got a mild sun bath while sitting at the back bar "window". Their house IPA was quite good with a decent hop bite. Their brisket was well worth the drive. The baked beans were the best I have ever had - I usually hate baked beans!

Small mountain restaurant/brewery with log-house atmosphere. A dozen or so little tables plus a small bar, with some additional seating upstairs. Despite being quite empty, they seemed slow paced and understaffed, only one waitress in the whole place. Service was alright, however I didnít order anything to eat. They offer five or so of their own beers plus a short bottle list. Regrettably, most all the beers were quite forgettable. The taster flight was a decent deal. I even got a quick tour of the brewing facility upon request, very cool! Their tap list may be a little lacking, but overall my experience was fairly pleasant.

Cool hippyish kind of place that we happened to run into between Estes Park and Central City. The service was good, and the people were nice. The XXX barbeque sauce was AWESOME! Small draft selection, 4 were their own, but they were pretty good. Decent, if not large, bottle selection as well.
I was there one afternoon and thought it was not a bad place at all. We got our food fairly quickly, the beer selection was good enough, and the staff, and owners were very nice. Even took my wife and I down to see the brewery. They smoke a lot of their food in a large oven, and it was excellent!
Located in the beautiful village of Nederland (how fun that is :-)) lies this small brewpub. Small selection, mostly of their own beers, which are ok. Decent service. Itís not great, but the most fun was to visit Nederland.
