After picking the boss up at the airport and returning them to Vail, they cut me loose for the day. Since check-in at the next hotel wasn't until 4 pm, a it was 1:30, I decided to check out Glenwood Springs. This was the first brewpub I was able to actually see from the highway, and that made it easy to find. It was 2:30 in the afternoon and the place was full. Heck, Glenwood Springs was full.

I only ordered a brown ale. I had to get back to Vail, and I didn't want to deal with the traffic with a buzz. It was a really nice brown ale, and was only $3.75.

If I ever find myself in Glenwood Springs again, I will stay in the Hotel Denver, and spend the whole time at the bar.

I like this place. It feels a bit like a cookie cutter 1990's brewpub, but the beers are excellent. Nothing zany, but a fleet of extremely well made American beers with a bit of English flair to them. Don't expect any barrel-aged kvass or tangerine rauch-gueuze and you'll be fine. The wall full of more than 30 GABF and WBC medals illustrates they know what they're doing. Easy drinking well-made beers are their M.O.
Food's pretty good, although it's a little pricey for what it is. It's definitely a step up from chain fare and portions are generous.
Service is okay, but a little disorganized.
This is my regular stop on Casey release weekends and I don't see that changing.

Very slow bar staff get down to your last beer and you have to ask for another one instead of them asking you. Food is expensive and small portions

Great Place. Food was excellent. Waitress was attentive but not obnoxious. Ordered Mac n Cheese and a beer flight. Was very satisfied with the portions of both the beer and the food. Will definitely be back if in the area. Get the Wild Mac n Cheese and order a flight plus a pint!!

Lived in Glenwood Springs for a few years, and I wish someone would open a new brewery in the valley to compete with this place.
Beer- nothing stands out, I have tried all or most of their brews and they are all standard beers, nothing exciting or new.
Ambiance- is ok, its a large place, so it can get noisy and hard to have a conversation.
Service- probably the only good thing about this place. Usually decent service, quick servers.
Food- is ok, large portions. But again, everything here is standard, nothing pops or makes it stand out.
Note: they do not fill growlers, they do exchange them. This ticks me off when a brewery does this, why not fill? That way the customer knows it is fresh and has not been sitting for days.
Overall always unimpressed when I visit.
SOMEONE OPEN A NEW BREWERY!

Went to Glenwood yesterday hoping to have a bit of food, a few beers and bring home a growler of good beer to have. Had no issues with the food, mediocre nothing special. Not allowed to fill outside growlers due to health issues, but can refill their own stainless steel (aluminum ones) if you buy from them and bring it back in (how that makes sense I dont know). Purchased a growler from them to have last night and today. Opened it within 1hour of purchasing it and it was flat. Since they prefill the growlers for you you have no idea when it was filled since undated. Tried to post on their facebook about it and my comments were deleted twice, no explanation about how it could be flat or offer of a refund.

Wont be going back there, not missing anything by not going.
