1. Carbondale Beer Works
In the heart of the impossibly adorable town of Carbondale, right next to the Post Office, is this little gem of a brewery. The beer was good and our appetizer of pretzels with beer cheese was really really good. The bartender was a little surly, but we had a great conversation with a furloughed Forest Service employee, who was begrudgingly (??) passing her free time at the bar.
2. Glenwood Canyon Brewing
This one barely gets a "meh". The beer was just ok, and the food was good only because we were really hungry. It was one of those big restaurant types of breweries (think: Rock Bottom or Yard House) that has put the craft of making good beer and food on the back burner while it focuses on having the biggest menu (of crap) in town. Definitely won't return here.
