Came here for the first time while staying in the area. Hadn't heard much about it so I figured it was somewhat of a shot in the dark. Very cool building from the outside, with the grain silo (unsure whether it's active or not) a clear indicator that it's a brewery. The inside is laid out such that you can very easily pull up to the bar for a pint or grab a table and enjoy some food. Great atmosphere - very fast-paced and fun, definitely a family-friendly place. I was pleasantly surprised at how un-touristy it was. Pretty decent beer - the Pale Ale is to die for. George runs a great place and has great people working for him. All of the servers I interacted with were very knowledgeable. Will definitely be coming back here!

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.
