I got to say, this brewery had it all. Great food, great beer and great service. Well, service lacked a little in the end. It took the guy forever to bring our check. But otherwise it was great. We walked into this restaurant brewery and immediately loved it. Brewery located within glass walls right in the middle of the place. Very nice. I'm surprised at the output that they have been doing with this system. I guess that's why they opened up a larger facility in Bayfield. Very clean and inviting environment. Lots of people as it was lunch time. And being in a town like Durango I bet half the people there were tourists. As was my wife and I.

We got the sampler which consisted of eight 4oz beers. They had a lot more of their beers on tap I believe but we didn't notice how many until we were leaving. The ones we got were their flagship beers plus a few specials. The rest that we didn't get were also local specials that were not offered anywhere else. I wish we didn't have the time schedule we were on otherwise we would have stayed for more. Each beer was great! Considering I've had them before from the bottle, off tap was even better. My favorite was the Colorado Kolsch. By far one of the best Kolschs I've had. There was one beer, name I cannot remember, that they used pine tips to give it its bitterness. It was interesting but also very refreshing.

The food here was great! I wish I had a bigger appetite I would've got more. They have plenty of different food to choose from so don't worry about not finding what you want. Great place to go for lunch or dinner

As others have noted, what sells this place is the atmosphere. The beer was all good as session beer; there wasn't one I could say was mind-blowing, but it was better than most brewpubs I've been to. Ska down the road had better beer, but that's a brewery, not a brewpub.

The bartenders go out of their way to be friendly, which is nice in a tourist town like Durango. Big, noisy, crowded, fun, I could see why it was popular.

This is probably my favorite brewpub in the world. Built in a renovated warehouse one block off of main street in Durango. The brewery is in a glass room in the center of the building.

They always have many (10-12) beers on tap. It's a brewers geekfest with a large chalk board over the bar listing the beginning and ending specific gravities, bittering units and ferment/racking dates for each batch on tap. They have multiple medal award winning beers and the Steam Engine Lager is one of my favorites. The Conductor IPA is also excellent.

The food is excellent. They have a cajun boil that they dump on your table on newspapers that is awesome.

On Thursdays if you buy a pint glass you get $1 beers all night. You can even bring the same glass back each week. Everytime we travel out west we pack our glasses.

We loved Steamworks. What a great structure and atmosphere. If I lived in Durango, I'd be in danger of hanging out here too much.

We didn't eat, but the menu looked great. Instead, we sat at the bar and had a great conversation with the 'tender, who was knowledgeable about the beer, the establishment and, actually, Durango itself. I easily quaffed a couple of Conductor Imperial IPAs and a Third Eye Pale Ale. The Conductor marked high with me and I enjoy a good IPA.

This is a top quartile brewpub, worthy of you going out of your way to experience.

Annoyances: I don't live closer.
