I actually sampled The Library's work at the Winter Park Brew Festival on 8/10. It was a grand event with 30 or so brewers represented and The Library was among them. Their taps were the first I sampled and I stuck around as they had a solid traditional IPA; another IPA brewed with Citra Hops; and a ESB. I was enamored with all of them, particularly the Citra concoction; it was very drinkable, smooth and provided that pleasurable floral blast mouthfeel while going down. The ESB was a pleasant variation on the English standard, which more of a hop edge than the typical versions.

I had the good fortune to meet Tom, the Brewer, who told me his Citra brew ["Tommy Boy"] was created about a month ago so after the Festival, I walked down Main St. for some more and some chow, too which was well prepared and served. They offer the typical bar fare of pizza, wings and sandwiches. I'm sure the place gets mobbed during ski season but whatever wait you have to endure, Tom's brews are worth it.

The place feeled like it had balance... it wasn't a full blown brew pub experience but also was a place you could bring your family to. Beers ranged from ok to very good. Was impressed with their stout if I remember right, but for sure their beer brewed with pomegranate juice was very special. I did not have any food as I had plans for later. I'm glad I was told about this and seen it on the way to Denver from the mountains and if in the area I probably would stop again if I didn't have other plans (new breweries are popping up all the time...). Definitely worth checking out.
