My wife and I make Tommyknocker Brewpub a priority every summer while camping in Colorado. The short trip on I-70 is scenic, so just getting there is worht the trip. Idaho Springs is a lovely little town full of Victorian-style houses, so even after Tommyknocker you can walk around, grab a coffee, and enjoy the atmosphere. The thing about Tommyknocker is the quality you get. Every meal we've eaten there has been delicious. Brewpubs should be known for quality beer, but food? Tommyknocker has a great menu and absolute quality food. The brewing process is right there for you to casually walk around, look at, take photos, watch, enjoy. They have a small cooler in the reception area/waiting area so you can grab a sixer on your way out the door. Also a t-shirt rack and pint glasses are for sell. They are generaly busy depending on the time of day, but there's always been good service. This place is a must-go-to for our family each year. Oh -- and I forgot to mention .... their beer is terrific. (1,004 characters)

I've been to this brewery about 4-5 times. The brewery really plays well to the location and love all the natural wood and openness to the brewing equipment, however the seating area is rather small in the bar area. I always order the bison burger med-well - solid choice. The seasonal pumpkin beer is tasty, however some of their beer tastes too flavored. I've never had bad service but nothing outstanding - always sit in the bar area. (437 characters)

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. (394 characters)

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 (165 characters)
