Just of the highway in ski town Dillon, this is a western themed multi leveled place. U shaped bar dominates the ground level. Typical sand wedges, burgers, tex-mex type food offerings, they brew about ½ dozen of there own beers. The pale ale I had was decent if unspectacular. Friendly enough crowd that seemed to be a mix of locals and visiting skiers. The staff seemed a bit on the sleepy side, but maybe that's just the New Yorker in me speaking. Not a bad place for a respectable brew or two and a bite to eat after skiing.

I really enjoy coming up here and eating and drinking. Most of their food goes great with the various beers, and they're starting to bottle some of their less frequent releases, so that's a big plus. I wish they'd stick with a few of the most popular ones and make them year-round, but maybe that's coming down the road. It's surely worth a stop when you're in town or passing by on I-70.

One of my favorite and easy access hangout when I'm in Summit County. I almost always stay in Dillon, which makes this close and easy to get to.

Food is above average bar food. Good chili, good burgers, good sandwiches. The beer selection is almost all their own but have a variety of styles to choose from. All if the beers are very good, but none great.

I love the atmosphere. It always has an après ski vibe with the spring break attitude removed. The interior is very clean, open, with a lodge feel. Staff and patrons couldn't be friendlier. Just great people with a positive vibe.

I highly suggest it if you're in the area.

Stopped by for a beer and some good while I was in Dillon. Service was fine, prompt, no complaints. Good was hit and miss, chicken wings were lackluster but the chicken-fried chicken was good. Decent selection if their beers, I think I counted 10 of them and pints were only $2.75 at happy hour. The IPA was just ok. Overall, I might go back if I'm in the area to sample the beers I didn't try but I don't know if if get good or not.

Probably the highest in elevation I that I sat in a brewery taproom. When inside I went up stairs to go higher. Did a flight and beers were ok to very good. Considered ordering a calzone when the elevation made me feel a little... well fluffy. If in the area this is a good place to stop for craft. I will visit again next time I am in Dillon.

A nice brewery that hones in on the mountain feel. Wood beams, loft, good beer, and a patio

Once inside it doesn't look all that big, it's quite nice sized. Loft upstairs, secluded dining area, horseshoe bar and flat screen tvs.

While their beers weren't all that expensive, the swag is. $24 for a t-shirt and no thanks. Not a big deal, but c'mon. Service was a bit slow. They were busy, but it was an expected busy (on a Dillon event day--bluegrass and brews). Place became full, but not crowded.

For the beers, they were solid and will do the trick. I liked the marzen and brown....and really all of them, with above average ratings. Chili beer was fairly tame.

A must stop in Dillon for sure.
