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
