Place was packed... I think an event was going on later nearby... anyway did a flight and really liked their barrel aged barleywine but unfortunately they were out of bottles. Service was good and the place had character... a presence I greatly enjoy in my brewpub experiences. Did not try any food. This is one of my favorite places in Springs I have visited and will probably be back someday...

in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs this place is more of a restaurant with an amazing beer selection than brewery. Great opportunities for flights with a large beer selection. Food was pretty spectacular (i would suggest the spicy chicken and waffles) and service was normal for restaurant

a nice little post garden of the gods hike drink spot, right downtown. it looks like a chain type of place, all big and sprawling in an old city building. the tables are packed pretty close together, and its loud in there and busy on a Saturday afternoon. they had quite a few beers on, maybe ten, and the four I had were all over the map. the peated porter was exquisite, while the hefeweizen was poor, and the other two were about what I expected, better than average but not mind bending. the service though was fantastic. our waitress suggested a great dinner spot, steered us away from a sub par dessert, and was attentive and friendly even though she was very busy. we appreciated that a lot. did not eat, but it looked like slightly better than average pub fare. the best part was the price, just 2.75 per beer, as it was happy hour. we certainly got good bang for our buck here, and will probably be back to try the often rotating lineup of beers.

I had an overnight stay in Colorado Springs, and always try to seek out a brewpub wherever I travel, so this was a good find.

Located in a really nice area of downtown Colorado Springs, but with very little parking. I couldn't find a meter at 5:00, so I had to pay $4.00 for the lot across the street which was a little disappointing.

I had 2 pints on this visit, the Streamliner IPA, and also the Cascade Amber Ale. The Streamliner was an overall decent IPA. Had a different finish to it, tasted like weed (not that I've done weed, but...), but overall was pretty good. The Cascade Amber ale didn't live up to expectations as described as hoppy, floral and citrus. I felt it was much more of a malt backbone ale with not a lot of hop presence. I had a sample of the barleywine as well which was good.

The highlight of this visit was the meal. I had the lemon tabasco fried chicken which was out of this world. A fried chicken breast with a wonderful sauce that had distinctive hints of Tabasco, lemon and bleu cheese chunks. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. I also ordered a cup of the blonde ale and smoked gouda cheese soup that was forgotten about by the server. By the time the entree arrived, I wasn't going to go back and ask for the soup, so I just let it go. She did tell me when asked about the lemon tabasco fried chicken that it was the best thing on the menu, and it wasn't on the bill, so I can't hold the soup against her too much. I believe the entree was under $10 as well.

Happy Hour is 3 - 6 and they have $2.75 pints - quite a good deal for a brewpub. All in all, a good visit, great atmosphere, friendly service, decent beers and great food. I believe they had around 10-12 of their beers on tap, and one that was on cask. If ever in the Springs again, I'd like to spend a little more time there and sample more food / beers.

Highly recommended!

One of the first places I visited when first moving to the Springs back in 1995, and have been a weekly regular ever since. It's also where my wife and I never hesitate to take family and friends when they visit.

Overall, this is one of the better places in town for the beer lover who would like some reasonably priced grub. They've done a good job of presenting new and creative beers, some real winners with a smattering of questionable choices) as well as maintaining the quality of their core beers. They have two beer engines for cask-styled beers that usually are reserved for their Zebulon porter and IPA.

The food menu is updated at least twice a year. The food is usually of excellent quality for a very reasonable price. You have all the standard bar fair plus items to suit the vegetarian or carnivore in you.

They are situated in a three story building with the main bar and dining room at ground level with huge south and west facing windows and high tin-stamped ceilings that give an open, airy feel. The second floor is an expansive billiards place with a smaller bar. The 3rd floor is for large banquet gatherings. Their is also patio seating on the south side of the establishment.

Local artists have their works displayed throughout.

The entire staff is excellent from the greeters to the wait staff, bar tenders, kitchen staff, and management. Many of these people have been there for years.

Anyway, Phantom Canyon is a fine place, either solo or with others, to enjoy some good craft brews and excellent food at a very reasonable cost and pleasant, casual atmosphere.

Visited while on "beercation." I was excited to try out another brewpub, and this place did not disappoint. Very yummy brews and food! They were unfortunately tapped out of one of their standard line-up beers, but I tried everything else they had. Some of the pale brews were sub-par/average but the darker beers were pretty darn delicious. Definitely worth sampling everything there. The food was very good and the portions were VERY generous. Come hungry, for sure.

Service was outstanding. Our bartender was very personable and knowledgeable regarding beer...that aspect really added to the overall pleasant atmosphere if the brewpub. We did make an afternoon visit, so it was less busy than normal I wager, but the whole establishment is very spacious and even the bar seating feels private between you and the person you are with, which was great.

I probably won't be in the area again for awhile, but I will absolutely go here again if I have the chance to. They had a great selection of merch as well, if you are interested in pint/shirt collecting!
