Had dinner and drinks with a good friend here and I can see why it's his favorite. The atmosphere is good - nothing special, but plenty of room and not excessively noisy. A little cool temperature wise, but it warmed up as the place filled up.
Service was good especially when the waitress recommended getting that 2nd beer early while it could still be had a happy hour prices.
I would put selection, food, and quality in the same category here. The food was very good and the beer was as well. The Hefeweizen had all the things you want in an American wheat (hint of sweet and citrus) and their porter had great color and coffee/chocolate smells. They had IPAs and other house beers on tap as well as beer by the bottle and they provided the right classes for the beer chosen. The food was just right in portions and the desserts were huge for their price.
Overall I'm quite impressed and should I be this way again, I'll definitely stop in again.

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.
