Not sure why it took so many visits before I reviewed this place.
Upon walking in the first thing that strikes me is how similar this looks to a million other brewpubs. The U-shaped bar sits right as you enter, dining areas on both sides, stairs to the left, as well as the brewing equipment. Bathrooms just past the bar on the left as well. TV placed throughout the bar area... you've been here, I'm sure. I am not knocking it, just saying.
The beer list is standard, solid, with safe seasonal offerings (on all but one of my visits). On the latest stop they were out of three beers. I opted for the EPA and it was as average as I recalled. Not bad, just average. We stop at Dillon Dam Brewery because of its location and we like the food. Good burgers, French Dip... you know, solid "upscale" pub grub stuff. No complaints about the food. Just a note... the veggie burger is very good here!
Service... well, generally it is okay. Maybe a tad slow but we've never had any real issues.
Prices, maybe a tad high; prices for their gear are moronically high. Pass.
There really isn't much to say about Dillon Dam Brewery... clean, warm, friendly brewpub with good food and safe beer options. It is a worth wise stop while traveling on I-70.

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.

neat place not too far off of i70. the place is pretty big, with a huge bar and and sprawling dining room. maybe 8 beers on, and the three I had were all B to B+ quality. service was a little indifferent, but wasn't slow or mean or anything. lots of windows so it was bright and sunny and warm in there, very comfortable. menu was impressive for lunch, and everything coming out looked great. the French onion soup was a hit, and the salad dressings were also homemade and yummy. things were fresh and fast, and the prices were fair. a place I would definitely stop in at again. I wish they bottles some other of their beers though. I think they few that they do are not a good illustration of the quality level they are capable of. don't write them off after a bottle of the extra pale, go in and have a fresh on, its a class better.

As you head west on Interstate 70 you will eventually run into the ski areas such as Dillon, Frisco, etc.
Located in Dillon not far off of 70 is Dillon Dam Brewing. You can’t miss the extra large green grain silo that marks the brewpub. Let’s face it this is a ski town, though it doesn’t do much for me, the aesthetic is nice. Walking into the brewpub the bar is located directly in front of the door, with seating around the bar. We opted for the patio. We didn’t try a sampler but did have a pint of the ESB and the Pils. We enjoyed both beers as we thought they were on style. By this time we were hungry and split a chopped Greek Salad and a Bison burger-both of which were very good. Service was good.
If you do visit this brewery take the very short self-guided tour of the brewery. Walk up the stairs near the entrance and follow the signage. It is a nice change of pace to get a eagle eye view of a brewery.
