One of the first breweries in the USA to can craft beer; worth a stop just out of respect. Stopped in while passing through Durango (a cool town indeed) driving from Mesa Verde to Great Sand Dunes National Park in Southern CO.

Cool bar and decor with a semi-industrial metal setup. Plenty of seating with a separate area for merch and a few coolers of beer to take home. They had singles, six packs and bombers of limited releases which was nice. I grabbed a few single 12oz bottles to try while camping.

We got a flight to split and all the beer was satisfying. They covered several different styles and none of the brews were disappointing. You can say what you want about the ska theme of the brewery but the beer itself hits the spot. No reason not to stop if you are in Durango.

I didn't stay here long, but I had enough time to get a flight for $5 (5 two-ounce pours, I think) and a $3 pour of Modus Hoperandi.

In general, I don't buy Ska beers back in New Mexico as many are average at best--- Modus Hoperandi being the one exception--- but I found at least three beers on tap I would have enjoyed drinking a pint of: Estival Cream Stout, Ten Pin Imperial Porter, and the Busta Nut Brown. The first two were good, the latter respectable.

Anyway, I liked the daily specials, including the $3-all day pours on the day I visited and the space was pleasant enough. There's food on hand, sixers and growlers to go in a refrigerator, and plenty of schwag for sale.
