Tommyknocker beers make it all the way to my home in Wisconsin, where they aren't well thought of. I ended up at the brew-pub by accident and coincidence, and while the place was OK, the relative lousiness of the beers sort of negatively colored my view of the brewpub.

I don't know much about CO, or about the west in general. But Idaho Springs felt weird to me...on the one hand it was a backwards little WV coal mining town, on the other, it is full of yuppies. The brewery is a bit like the town; a bit run down. Beers were not good. Food was marginal. Service was below average. I will not be returning, and I will be avoiding Tommyknocker beers from here on out.

I love visiting this place in Idaho Springs, and the restaurant is as good as the beer. Hard to go wrong with a buffalo burrito and a beer, that's for sure. I liked the old style of label and logo more than the new version, but that's how it goes sometimes. As long as they keep the beer good, right? They could stand to try a few new ideas, but the tried and true are generally successful.

A must everytime we drive out (or back from) the mountains. Every visit has new seasonals/rotators/etc as well as their long time favorites.

Food's also pretty good
