Stopped by on the way home from work today. You really can't miss it - there is a huge silo converted into a giant can of Dale's Pale Ale. You can literally see it from over a mile away!

Atmosphere is noticeably more upscale than their original restaurant in Lyons. It's a large place with many tables, booths, and a long bar (more on which later). Similar decor to the original with lots of blues-related memorabilia like album covers and gig posters. There's also an upstairs area but I didn't check it out.

I had a seat at the bar - two flat screens but, more importantly, several dozen craft beer taps. There is no shortage of great beers here. In addition to the O.B. Gordon, Ten Fidy, Old Chub, Yella Pils, and Dale's, there was also(to name a few)...

PtE, Bear Republic, Stone IPA and Bastard, Prima Pils, Alaskan Smoked Porter, Wipe Out IPA, 1554, etc... Plus seasonals from many brewers. Overall a great selection and no crap beer on tap. If you really want a BMC product, they have a few cans below the bar. Oddly there were no bottles anywhere but then again, Oskar is known for it's cans.

Service was average at best but it's a new place (just opened 10/12/09) and was pretty busy so I can cut them some slack. The pulled pork sandwich I ordered came quickly and was fairly good.

One bonus, the place is staffed by a lot of very attractive women, for those of you who care about such things.

Definately a great new destination for any beer advocate. Highly recommended

Atmosphere - I dig the exterior; cool water features with empty kegs with an opening for water to come out onto rocks and plants. Patio is spacious with a stage for live music, another larger keg water feature, kids play areas and plenty of seating out in the open and within a covered patio area. Interior is two storied with the bar right behind hostess station and plenty of seating to the right and left and wrapping around behind the bar and upstairs. The decor is old rock and blues concert posters and vinyl album covers!
Quality - a lot of outstanding beers on the tap list from OB and beyond!
Service - early week at lunch, so not terribly busy, but busy enough to get an idea how good the service may usually be; waitress was prompt, helpful and friendly!
Selection - lots of variety, plenty from OB and many from other CO breweries, as well as Alpine, Evil Twin, Firestone Walker, etc!
Food - southern and Cajun fare; kids menu pleased my children, and my wife and I enjoyed our sandwich and burger.
Overall - a bit pricey, but well worth it as the beer selection and quality was outstanding and the food hit the spot!

After a long drive from the Springs we were looking for a dinner spot close to our hotel, and OB was across the highway. It has a fun atmosphere and the staff is happy to help. We started with a custom beer flight liked the scotch ale best. I had the enchilada special which was rather spicy. I like spice but this was so spicy it hindered my ability to analyze/appreciate my beer. My wife had the June Carter salad and LOVED it. We got chicken strips for the kiddo which were huge. The brownie sundae wasn't too impressive. Don't forget to bring some home town brewery stickers to put on the walls.

The only negative I can come up with was the foul odor coming from the water feature out front.

Hard to rate. Sat at the bar, was not served. Left and went somewhere that was interested in my money.

Great venue! Unfortunately, the food is horribly overpriced. Beer is good, and priced sufficiently, save for the specials which can run as high as $15/10 ounces. $12 'black and blue' burger wasn't any different than what you can get anywhere else for half that.

We stopped here after the GABF - on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park from Denver.

Everything about this place is great. They have their own beers on draft, in addition to many guest taps - mostly from
Colorado - and a few other regions (California, NY, etc.).

The bartender was extremely helpful and friendly telling us about their beers and the local beers.
The food - was awesome! All their meats (ribs, brisket, wings, etc.) are smoked for 4 hours - and their sauces are made with their beers.

Restaurant décor was cool and the place was immaculately clean.

If you want some great bbq and great beer, definitely go! We'll be back next time we're in Colorado!
