I stopped by en route to Vail. I had read about the chile beer, and couldn't resist a stop, even though I really wanted to get to my hotel.

It was 2 pm on a Thursday, and there were a few people at the bar. and a scattering of customers. I had a chile beer and a pretzel. The beer was cold and the pretzel was fresh out of the oven. Their beer mustard is tangy and delicious, but the pretzel didn't need it. It was crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.

I really enjoyed my visit. I will be in the area a week, and I know where I'm spending some of my Sunday!

After attempting to summit Quandary Peak, we stopped here to refuel. The sausage and pretzel skewer was great! I thought the Irish stout was the best beer out of the three I tried. The brown ale was pretty good also. Decent service - decent being a word that applies to just about everything there - burgers, beer, service, and vibe.

I really enjoy coming up here and eating and drinking. Most of their food goes great with the various beers, and they're starting to bottle some of their less frequent releases, so that's a big plus. I wish they'd stick with a few of the most popular ones and make them year-round, but maybe that's coming down the road. It's surely worth a stop when you're in town or passing by on I-70.
