Swung by Kannah Creek during a geology field trip to Colorado and Utah. First off, the food was enjoyed by all in our group. The lasagna was excellent, immensely filling, and reasonably priced. Similar sentiments were felt by orderers of the pizza, calzones, and spaghetti. The waitress made us feel at home, and was prompt and attentive with our large group (12), refilling beers and waters quickly, joking with the guys, and easily separating the check with no complaint. Atmosphere is standard family-friendly brewpub status, but clean and pleasing to the eye. The outdoor patio was the perfect setting on a cool Colorado evening.

The beer at Kannah Creek is above-average, but nothing stellar for Colorado. The Black Bridge stout on nitro-tap was the best choice in my opinion, while the oak-aged IPA was decent. They also won a WBF Gold for their Amber (in the german Altbier category), but it didn't do much for me. The sips of Maibock and Pale Ale that I tried were tasty, however.

Definitely a place to stop for the beer geek stuck in Grand Junction. I'd choose this place over the nearby Ale House (Breckenridge BBQ subsidiary) for its food and great service, but not for atmosphere or beer selection.

one of the only shows in town if you are out in grand junction, this place is a bit of an oasis. the vibe is alright, kind of set up like a diner, only everything is a little newer, maybe more like a friendly's or something, with probably 8 beers going. the pale ale and hefe were both average, but the food was excellent. I had a steak pizza that was really solid, and the waitress was nice and attentive (and sort of cute). perhaps a tad overpriced, I think we were out the door for 40 bucks only having a meal and two drinks, but the place is worth stopping in to, especially if you are going to eat. will heave to head back at some point when I can sample a few more of the beers, but we had a pleasant experience here overall.

We chose the place based on other Beer Advocate reviews but have to say, not impressed. Next trip to GJ, I'll try the Alehouse.

It was a Friday evening with great weather so the place was busy but we got an outside table right away. Problem was: the smoking section was right next to our table. There is an invisible "wall" that separates the smoking from non-smoking areas. So, if you are interested in actually tasting your brew, you might want to stay well away from the poorly marked smoking area. Ask your hostess.

Waitress was very good.

But beer selection was mediocre. Their special brew that week was nut brown ale that was so bland that I did not bother to get a full glass. The IPA was decent but not memorable. The Pale Ale was also decent; nice maltiness.

The high point may be their brick oven pizza. Tons of topping possibilities and a great crust. May be worth coming back for.

I've been to the brewpub many times before writing this review but decided to visit once more before I put my thoughts about the place on a review.

First of all, the service was excellent. I ordered the sampler flight of beer and it was presented with a guide and the server walked me through all of the selections giving me a layman version of the beers which even my father (whos is a major domestic drinker) could understand.

I wanted to get a special pizza as my son is a picky eater and she was very helpful with negotiating a pizza that would satisfy all at the table.

The beers were solid, they were out of their wheat beer but knowing the business as I do, I fond this completely understandable. All beers were correct to their style and none had any off flavors. The sampler glasses were nice and clean too.

The place is good enought that beer enthusiasts and people just looking for a good place to eat are both going to be satisfied.

drove over to Grand Junction from Fruita during a mountain bike weekend, aside from the great beer store just down the street, this seems to be the only thing worth visiting in the city

moved right through the nice, spacious interior to the patio since it was quite nice outside, the building is reminiscent of an alpine cabin, it's right on the street but a privacy fence provides an adequate barrier, pretty chill spot with just a few college students hanging out and a big grain silo with hop bines growing nearby

the selection was pretty solid - maybe 6 or 7 regulars at the time of my visit with a couple rotating seasonals, an ESB and maibock, both of which were really good, standard shaker pints ran somewhere under $4, and even less with a small happy hour discount that's available all week

went with the lasagna dinner - tasty, not overloaded with cheese, and big enough to provide leftovers, my coworker called the tri-tip sandwich bland but I can't vouch either way

service was helpful, quick, and friendly, samples provided without question
