My wife and I visited Phantom Canyon over the weekend on a gray, rainy, cool Saturday that was too cloudy even to see Pikes Peak, but I must say PC brightened our spirits immensely. From the outside, looks like a pretty unassuming place, nothing flashy, in an older building in Old Downtown Colorado Springs.
Wandering inside, the place is pretty open, with lots of wood tables, a decent size bar in the middle, and the brewing area off in one corner. Walking by the bar, I could see a well populated chalked beer list (trademark of a decent place that rotates taps often enough in my opinion). There was a pretty good crowd at early lunchtime on Saturday. I think there were 8 or so beers on tap, with quite an impressive diversity of styles represented. I personally tried the Triple Treat and some variation on a Scotch ale, for which I cant recall the exact name. Both were quite tasty, even though the Treat was murky like a silty mudpuddle, talk about unfiltered!
Service was excellent, I dare say some of the best Ive had in a brewpub. Our server, clearly a beer enthusiast himself, offered detailed descriptions of the beers and freely offered up his favorites (and dislikes) when asked about the special tap offerings. The food menu wasnt huge, but had some very interesting offerings. Our food arrived quite quickly and our pint glasses were never empty. For food we tried the wild mushroom enchiladas and the chicken fried chicken, both of which were fantastic and way above average pub food. Definitely an enjoyable visit, nice atmosphere, would be fun to visit this place when its hoppin.
