Dillon Dam Brewery: Colorado

I got the opportunity a few weeks ago to visit the Dillon Dam Brewery in Summit County, Colorado.

The place was very inviting: roomy, comfortable, good food, tasty beer, and wheelchair accessible.  The pub had a Western mining town feel to it, with lots of wood and an open middle space.  Patrons on the top floor can look down on the bar.  At one side of the top floor there is a self-guided tour of the brewery operation.  Nothing too surprising there, but it's nice to see they make the effort to educate the public about craft beer making.

The beers were pretty good, but I would have liked to see a few more risky beers for those of us who are always on the lookout for something special.  That is not to say that I did not enjoy the beers--they were excellent.  Some of beer names played off the "Dam" theme and I'm told there actually is a Dillion Dam.

We didn 't try the meals, but the appetizers were good.  All in all, well worth a stop.
