Pretty much DOA. We were there in off-season and you could tell. Some basic activity in the brewery but not much to watch. The bartender at the sampling station didn't have much to say about the beer, didn't seem too excited to be there. The guy upstairs in the restaurant (we didn't try the food) was friendlier and more welcoming, seemed to want to talk about the beer.

They do have a nice selection to sample for free and more to try on tap. They also have a pretty wide selection to buy and take with you. Unfortunately none of the beers were particularly interesting (maybe the Samson stout), and the fruit additions in their beers tasted sugary/extracty.

Not really worth the visit.

The overall lineup was not awesome but the barleywine was quite impressive. I would return if they get better food! Maybe it is an enditement of the food industry as a whole i dont know. Every restaurant needs to try just a bit harder, because you cannot get a good bite to eat in all of estes park colorado and it is a low down dirty shame.

I've had several people recommend Estes Park Brewery to me over the years. Unfortunately, our string of great Colorado breweries came to an end here.

Of the samples we tried, the Trail Ridge Red and the Renegade IPA were perfectly passable beers. The rest were below par. One of the best tasting brews was a combination of porter with the raspberry wheat, never a good sign when mixing beer is an improvement.

Because of my earlier recommendations, we waited past lunch time to eat at Estes Park while spening the bulk of the day driving around Rocky Mountain National Park; my patience and hunger were only adequately satisfied by a cheese pizza. Disappointing but fine. On this Saturday afternoon, the place is lively and full of locals. Seemed like a fun place to come with a group of people. If I found myself in Estes Park for the scenery or other reason unrelated to beer, I wouldn't fight going back to Estes Park Brewery. However, I definitely won't go out of my way for it, again.
