Stopped in here to visit Alan after a beer fest in Dillon. A cross between deck-house, lodge and cabin feel. High wood ceilings and nice open spaces provides comfort and some privacy. Big leather chairs and couches up front affords some chillaxing time with a nice brew.
They had a handful of beers on tap, and you can purchase bottles, 'pigs', and kegs to go. A couple of separate rooms for dining and a long upper deck/patio.

I had the Lumberjack pizza and it was quite good. Pretty good price and great service, although there weren't many people there for lunch on a sunday.

Beers were nice as always. Had a good time and toured the brewing facility. A must stop in Dillon/Frisco

Cool brewpub. Nice view of the mountains! Service was very good. Bison burger was great. Had the porter, imp saison and breakfast stout. All very solid beers. The breakfast stout is the one of the most outstanding low abv stouts I've tasted. Brewers A.J. and Owen were great, enjoyed doing a bottle share with them.

May an off day service was a bit slow. Beer slection is mostly standard fair. Nothing really stretching boundary.

I really like this place especially for happy hour!! Happy hour is 6 days a week from 3-6 and they have killer deals. There were 3 of us and our bill was $45 and we had many beers and 3 appetizers. Solid beers, I really enjoyed the DIPA, Breakfast Stout and Amber this trip. Food was very good too. The service was good, especially considering how busy they were. We camped about 5 minutes from the brewery next to the lake. Easily my favorite brewery right off the I70.

Atmosphere - reminds me of a ski condo resort. nice and cozy inside with lots of space. doesn't remind me of a brewery. more focus on the food here.

Quality - nothing that really stood out for me here.

service - very good server

selection - lots of beers to choose from. again, nothing overwhelming.

food - sad that the food was my favorite part of the brewery

overall - good place. I enjoyed the DIPA and the Berlinerweiss quite a bit. I would go back if I was skiing.
