Phantom Canyon BC is conveniently located across from the Antlers Hilton and within walking distance of the other downtown brewpubs (Il Vicino and Judge Baldwins'). For the complete brewpub experience and good beer, the Phantom is the place.

The layout of the dining and bar area is pretty open, with high pressed-tin ceilings and the many high tables and stools in from of the bar. There are booths and regular tables around the perimeter of the L-shaped restaurant. Loud classic rock plays on the stereo. The brewery is located in a glass enclosure in the corner. I visited in the late afternoon just as happy hour began. it was not yet crowded.

They even have free wi-fi, but according to my server, the problem is that the college students that live in the apartments above the restaurant connect to it and eat up the bandwidth sometimes. I had trouble getting any activity and the manager offered to help me get a better connection on one of their private routers. As for the attentiveness of the staff as a whole, they treated me very well.

The beers are clean, tasty and technically sound. But, as some other reviewers noted, they are brewed with the general public in mind, so don't expect strong hop character, except in the IPA. However, they had a peat-smoked porter that was distinctive and uncommon to find in an ordinary brewpub, so the brewer is on-board with craft beer sensibilities. They also cater to individual tastes, so if you order, let's say, their blond ale, they will ask you if you want it in a chilled or room-temperature glass.

The food was excellent. I discovered a new appreciation for green chili salsa. Food was hot, fresh and served fast. Standard brewpub fare on the menu with a slant toward southwestern tastes. Good stuff.

I will go back again. (1,787 characters)

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... (396 characters)
