EDIT: Since the original review below I've been back a couple times and I would only consider the food "ok" to a good. If I lived in town I'd eat there but not worth driving from Denver or Fort Collins.

I was expecting big things and this place delivered on all fronts. The décor is that stereotypical artsy, bluesy, folksy (you know, put shit on the walls) look that is played out and yet Oskar Blues can pull it off in spades. This place looked great and it had the perfect vibe.

As you walk in the first thing you notice is the bar, errr, taps. Lots of them. I've had my fair share of great beers and I've been in my fair share of great bars and the tap selection here is no joke. With a healthy base of Oskar Blues' beers how can it go wrong? The "guest tap" list was wonderful.

Our group of six split a smattering of appetizers and they were all very good. The nachos were solid; the fried mozzarella was great as was the fried pickles, good hummus too. No complains on the food.

We were thrilled you could do sampler platters of beer and after we finished our pint we ordered two 5 beer samples to share. That was a lot of fun.

Our waiter was new (we came to find out) but we was very attentive, helpful and knew enough about the beers. I was pleased with the service. Oddly we watched two customers yell wildly at the young manger on duty about their poor service. We watched their table (as it was next to ours). They received their water right away and the order was place promptly. They didn't order drinks and about 10 min. later they went on full freak-out mode. We thought their actions were so absurd we spoke the manager and told them what we saw.

There is a small arcade in the back for the kids (of all ages).

We drove down from Fort Collins just to visit this restaurant and we were thrilled we did. Awesome beer... good food... good atmosphere; highly recommended.

Atmosphere - I dig the exterior; cool water features with empty kegs with an opening for water to come out onto rocks and plants. Patio is spacious with a stage for live music, another larger keg water feature, kids play areas and plenty of seating out in the open and within a covered patio area. Interior is two storied with the bar right behind hostess station and plenty of seating to the right and left and wrapping around behind the bar and upstairs. The decor is old rock and blues concert posters and vinyl album covers!
Quality - a lot of outstanding beers on the tap list from OB and beyond!
Service - early week at lunch, so not terribly busy, but busy enough to get an idea how good the service may usually be; waitress was prompt, helpful and friendly!
Selection - lots of variety, plenty from OB and many from other CO breweries, as well as Alpine, Evil Twin, Firestone Walker, etc!
Food - southern and Cajun fare; kids menu pleased my children, and my wife and I enjoyed our sandwich and burger.
Overall - a bit pricey, but well worth it as the beer selection and quality was outstanding and the food hit the spot!

After a long drive from the Springs we were looking for a dinner spot close to our hotel, and OB was across the highway. It has a fun atmosphere and the staff is happy to help. We started with a custom beer flight liked the scotch ale best. I had the enchilada special which was rather spicy. I like spice but this was so spicy it hindered my ability to analyze/appreciate my beer. My wife had the June Carter salad and LOVED it. We got chicken strips for the kiddo which were huge. The brownie sundae wasn't too impressive. Don't forget to bring some home town brewery stickers to put on the walls.

The only negative I can come up with was the foul odor coming from the water feature out front.

Hard to rate. Sat at the bar, was not served. Left and went somewhere that was interested in my money.

Great venue! Unfortunately, the food is horribly overpriced. Beer is good, and priced sufficiently, save for the specials which can run as high as $15/10 ounces. $12 'black and blue' burger wasn't any different than what you can get anywhere else for half that.

We stopped here after the GABF - on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park from Denver.

Everything about this place is great. They have their own beers on draft, in addition to many guest taps - mostly from
Colorado - and a few other regions (California, NY, etc.).

The bartender was extremely helpful and friendly telling us about their beers and the local beers.
The food - was awesome! All their meats (ribs, brisket, wings, etc.) are smoked for 4 hours - and their sauces are made with their beers.

Restaurant décor was cool and the place was immaculately clean.

If you want some great bbq and great beer, definitely go! We'll be back next time we're in Colorado!
