We attempted to go to their Roundhouse location after a very long hike. The hostess made no attempt to work with our party size (11) despite the number of open tables. after being told is was an hour to hour and a half wait, we gave up and decided to go to the other location which was closer to home.

I called ahead, spoke to Eli. I explained what we were looking for, a place that could eat 11 very hungry people, told him we would be there in about 30 minutes. He was very accommodating, said that while he can't take a reservation, they will be ready for us.

WE showed up in 20 minutes and as promised, a large table was ready. The server (didn't get her name) was great, all orders taken and delivered timely, drinks refilled or new beer orders taken. Two people had their burgers overcooked but the one person for whom that was an issue, the kitchen rectified that right away once brought to their attention. The food was very im funky fresh, the burgers and chili in particular got raves. I wish the beer was as good as everything else but the blonde and amber were decent enough and easy drinking. Overall, they earned plenty of money from us and is a place a large hiking club who frequently has up to 20 people descending on a bar/brewery/restaurant after a hard hike would gladly go again.

Good food, good service and good selection of beer.
Was a little confused that they had a Unibrau Hefeweizen that was their brew and not Unibrou, but it was good

I gotta give it to my nephew, who gets the "Huevos Rancheros Award" on this one. Long ago I coined the phrase "you gotta have the huevos if you wanna have the rancheros sauce." Well, eat an entire plate of ghost chili fries, YOU GET THE AWARD. The food was damn fine, even possibly spectacular. The buffalo jalapeno poppers were out of this friggin' world, the fish tacos great (huge), and the ghost chili fries... well, ask my nephew. I rarely give out a rating such as this for food, but in this case, it's earned.

Beer was tasty. The poppy seed wit was truly wonderful and bizarre. The stout was quite American-ly stout-y. I wish they had more choices for beer. Some guest taps were available tho.

Service was grand. I think I'm in love several times over. Multiple future-ex wives in my future.

Atmosphere was busy but nice. No crappy music playing, lots of bustling activity, and that was mid-afternoon.

Great spot. Highly recommended.

My wife, daughter, and i ended up at Colorado Mountain Brewery out of convenience as it was right down the street from our hotel. It was also on the list of nearby restaurants provided by the hotel.

I really liked the atmosphere - sort of upscale mountain lodge resort type ambience with lots of large wooden beams and stone, plus a lot of space. Tables are nice and big. Seating is really comfortable. I could have stayed there all evening. There are nice covered areas outside as well with some shelter from wind if it becomes an issue. The place overlooks the Air Force Academy and the Pikes Peak is right there for your viewing pleasure. Nice!

It was kind of early in the evening before the non-family crowd gets out so there weren't many folks there yet - a real benefit I've learned over the years. Joel was our server and he was excellent - polite, patient, and knowledgable.

The fair is of good variety. If you can't find something that grabs you, then you're just not hungry. We all had burgers as we were just in that mood and it was early evening. The burgers as you can see from the menu are called "Fourteeners" representative of the several peaks over 14,000 feet in altitude around Colorado. They are 100% Angus beef, big, and pack a wonderful flavor. Everything is pretty much named after something related to the Rocky Mountains, the local area, or Colorado in general. Check out the menu to see what I mean. Everything I saw them bring out looked fantastic.

They have five house brews available year round. (See my review of their Panther IPA, named after an Air Force squadron.) Every Tuesday they release a small one off batch at 5 pm. I think it was a black lager that day, but I was in the mood for IPA.

Value is great for this area! The bill was $28.27! My pint was only $3! Granted, we did not get expensive items, but if you look at the menu you'll see that these guys are more than fair with their prices.

I will definitely go back when the opportunity presents itself. These guys are a pretty new establishment, but I think they'll do well once the word spreads.

This is a huge semi-upscale restaurant/brewery similar in feel to a Rock Bottom, except on steroids. Upon entering, one is greeted by a massive eating room with huge nicely stained wooden pillars, rafters, and an overall "upscale rustic" atmosphere. It definitely feels nice, and the large expanse of the room absorbs some of the noise, making the roar of the people slightly less than at other establishments of this type. There is a fairly large partially covered patio surrounded by glass, and this is where I sat with my wife where we were there. Every table seemed to be full, so the service was spread thin and the waiters and waitresses seemed to be running at all times. The service we did get however was good. The food was average for this class, we both had burgers. Other menu items looked like they would be good as well. The beer I had was better than expected, but nothing to rave about. I would recommend trying the Colorado Mountain Brewery if you like establishments of this type. If this place stays in business, it will likely get better and better as the management learns the ropes. We will go back at some point to see how it is for sure.
