Visited here on a brew-crawl across the United States, luckily catching a glimpse of the word "Brewery" out the corner of my eye while traveling down the highway. When I visited, I think they had about 8 beers on tap. I sampled 2 of them and they both tasted like soap. I thought it was the glasses, so I had the waitress make sure the bartender was rinsing them. The next two also tasted like soap, so I mentioned it to the brewer. He tasted some samples and said they tasted normal to him, so I guess that is how they are supposed to taste. My girlfriend also mentioned that they tasted like soap, without me mentioning it first. We got some food which was quite average and overpriced. They offer 12oz bottles, nitros, and kegs out the door, as well as seasonal 6 packs. The waitress was average in her knowledge about their beer. The atmosphere was cozy enough, with lots of colorful mining charicatures on the wall and a few TVs in a dining room seperate from the bar. (973 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)
