Visited with the family on July 6. Despite the huge capacity of this brewpub, we waited 30 minutes for a table on our Saturday night visit. The place was hopping with lively tourists and locals most of whom had probably spent the day enjoying the fantastic outdoor activities the Durango area has to offer (we did a five mile alpine hike).
Steamworks has around 12 or so taps ranging from an imperial IPA, mole stout, and saison to more tourist friendly kolsch, amber, and lagers during our visit. All the beers I tried weren't neccessarily amazing, but certainly tasty and more than passable, and a welcome respite from the three previous area brewpubs we'd tried which seemed to be focused blondes, ambers, and lagers (in fairness we did not go to Carver or Ska).
The food is what really stands out at this place. I'll go so far to say that Steamworks is really a gourmet restaurant disguised as a brewpub. The prices were very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Overall, it's probably the best brewpub food I've ever had. Service was quite good and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the beer selections.
So what's not to like here? Family friendly lively atmosphere, wide selection of good beer, and great food at reasonable prices. Most importantly, the wife and kids (two teenagers) loved it which is certainly not always the case when I drag them along to brewpubs.
