I visited Phantom Canyon for a late lunch on Mother's Day 2005.

I sat at the bar, right near the tap box to get a chance to discuss the beers with the bartender. I sampled the Peated Porter (my first smoked beer, but it won't be my last), the Brown Ale, and on the recommendation of another patron, the Hefeweizen. All were excellent, but I went with the IPA for my pint, also excellent.

Lunch was their hot pastrami and swiss sandwich with fries - a good choice, but a hard one to make since many other things on the menu looked good.

I recommend Phantom Canyon to anyone passing through Colorado Springs and will stop again myself when in the neighborhood.

A solid brewpub in the heart of Colorado Springs. Parking is limited, but if you're visiting and planning to walk around downtown for an hour or two, you can park right behind the building for $5.

It's a big place with a lot of tables, but it didn't feel too packed. Lively but tame.

The service was friendly but a bit slow. It took a while to seat three people with 4+ tables visibly open, but everyone was pleasant and helpful.

The beer is above average for a small brewpub but nothing special. The Alpenglow seemed to be the most popular on tap and was a pretty solid hefeweizen. A B+ hefe, while many American brewers fail to execute the style. Maybe a touch too sweet, but the orange and banana notes are there. I had a flight of four other beers: Succubus, Box Car. Streamliner, and a Session IPA whose name is escaping me. Succubus was a little harsh and unbalanced, but I enjoyed the other 3, particularly the Session. The beer is accessible and straightforward, but not necessarily to its detriment.

The food was actually very good. I was spoiled on my Colorado vacation by restaurants like Rioja and Panzano, so I wasn't quite blown away by the food at Phantom Canyon, but it was very solid pub food. The Bison Patty Melt was cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned. Better than beef, dare I say. A member of my party got the fried chicken, and it looked delicious as well.

Overall, I'd probably be a regular if I lived here. Not exceptional but very high quality.
