V: Very odd vibe, one side feels like a normal bar the other side has a diner feel.

Q: The beer was not very high quality, lots of brewing flaws. Their stout was one of the worst beers I have had.

S: They had a wine and hard drink menu, but no beer menu (very odd for a brewery), the beer brewed here felt like an afterthought as the waiter couldn't tell us very much about the beer. Our server was slow and disappeared for long stretches of time. Overall the service wasn't very attentive.

S: They only had three of their own brewed beers on tap and they really seemed like an afterthought. They did have other beers on tap, but most of them were Inbev owned offerings (Budweiser, Shocktop, Goose Island, etc.)

F: Food was ok, we had the steak and it was a little tough, and came drenched in A-1 steak sauce (odd choice they should let us decide if we want that on there). The food was average but not worth the price.

O: This was very odd, they take a lot of pain to advertise that there is a brewery in the hotel (they have it plastered all over including on the outside visible from the highway) yet when you get there, it seems like an afterthought and none of the staff seems to take their own brewed beer seriously or even care about it, and the beers that they do have are below average offerings as it is.

this is a way cooler place than i feel like its getting credit for being, tucked into a cool hotel right across from the ski resort. as such, it has a ski lodge vibe to it, higher end feel, vaulted wooden ceilings, exposed beans, sort of an intimate layout with lots of sofas and a four sided bar. the brewery is all copper and is actually in a lofted area above the bar, a really neat layout. fireplaces raging, cozy for sure. they only had four of their own beers on, but all of them were pretty decent. we liked the coffee porter and the ipa the best, but they also had a sour cherry beer and a coconut porter that were quite good too. the guest taps were generic and lame. the bartender was a total jerk, he wasnt busy at all and instead of giving us a beer list when we asked him nicely for one, he said go sit down and wait for a server. we tried to sit at a nearly empty bar and were rudely turned away. what the heck?! the server fortunately could not have been any nicer. she was prompt and funny and generous with the samples. she more than made up for him, but it was a weird way to be greeted as patrons. we had a nice time here, the vibe would be awesome on a snowy winter evening, and thats what they try to create year round it seems. mellow and cozy, worth checking out, more than passable beers.

The only advantage to this place is that we didn't have to go anywhere. We were very tired from mountain biking at the Trestle Bike park. Didn't enjoy the atmosphere. They only had one beer that they brew available. Also to add insult to injury, they were out of the Odell IPA. Food was average. The bartender was friendly, that was the only think that kept us there for the 2 beers we had and a sandwich. I would not go out of your way to go here and I would not recommend. Gotta say it is difficult to write 500 characters on a place that is below average.

Skiing down to the base at Winter Park, the neon letters of BREWERY beckon from across the highway, urging all snowriders to check out Moffat Station. My friends and I, in the name of hunger and potentially good beer, were enticed. We should have known better.

The brewery is located on the second floor of the Winter Park Lodge and seems to be the only restaurant in the hotel. This may explain some of the decor which reminded me of an institutional setting, like a middle school cafeteria or the room that they serve the continental breakfast in at the Days Inn. Behind the too-brightly lit main dining room is the bar, which with the lagering tanks impressively situated above the bar, seems standard enough: a fair number of TVs, standard wooden decor, and a good number of customers.

After waiting for a server for 15 minutes at an unbussed table, my friends and I moved to the bar, where we ordered one pitcher of each of the two (!) beers that this place had on tap. The service at the bar was marginally better than that at the table, which is to say that we had some service at all--though later they would forget an appetizer
and overcharge us $10. To boot, both of the beers were flavorless and disappointing, and the bar staff had no information to pass on about the brews.

Were it not for the food, this place would have struck out across the board. As it was, it came close; though, all four of us agreed that the meals were well-priced (about $10) and tasty. Even though this is the only brewpub between Berthoud and Rabbit Ears Pass, it's best to avoid it.
