Coming out of RMNP, we had less time to make the trip back to west texas than the drive was going to take. Upon learning of a local brewery, however, we decided to delay our departure.
Walking in felt like another souvenir store, as the entrance opens into an overstuffed array of tshirt racks and hats and a little cooler holding their variety of beers in bottle. This little store was kind of dark, which contrasted with the restaurant upstairs.
The tasting bar is on the first floor, in the back of the gift shop next to the stairs to the restaurant. The beertender seemed kind of aloof and almost annoyed at first, but I think it might have been because of the people who were finishing up as we got there, because as soon as we got into our tasting and started talking to him, he was really nice, and seemed to have at least a decent level of knowledge about what he was serving us.
The stairs are open to look out over the brewery itself (as is a balcony with a long table in the restaurant, but it was occupied when we got there), which I really liked. Waiting for my compatriots to use the facilities (road trips with girls - am I right, fellas? and WHAT"S with airplane food?), I got to look out over the set up, which was kind of fun, even though there wasn't alot of activity on the sunday morning we were there.
The upstairs restaurant was sparsely attended when we were there, and, as such the staff were attentive and talked with us while we drank. I agree, however, with other reviewers who have seemed a little perplexed at exactly what ambiance they were going for. It had the alpine wooden thing going with an airy atmosphere, but also part with alot of glass and neon lights. Then I got lost in the arcade.
It was ok, don't regret going, but not necessarily worth going out of your way for.
