This brewery was about a block off of Main Street, but it was still hoppin' during the middle of the week! My husband and I both had the Cajun boil, and it was delicious--crab legs, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn on the cob in a...More

We abstain in this parenting phase of life, thus I can't attest to the Steamworks beer selection (walking through the bar area, it appears extensive) However, the very reasonable menu, dining area, and back patio in summer, are perfect for families and children. There is...More

We have been to Durango twice. The first time for three days, the next time for four days. On both trips Steamworks got our dining dollars twice! The food, beer selection, atmosphere are not to be beat. It is upbeat and the food is better...More

We are looking for a place for my son's rehearsal dinner. Your restaurant was mentioned as one of the bride's favorites!! Do you have the facilities to accommodate a party of probably 25 with a "per person" menu?

We do not allow dogs on our patio. We apologize for the inconvenience.
where is this establishment in relationship to the train depot? Will be visiting in near future and like craft beers. Would like to stop in and give them a shout out... and see how Durango beer compares to Michigan..... Just kidding..

We are three blocks north and one block east from the train station. Easy walking distance for great Colorado craft beer!

Steamworks Brewing Co. Opened its doors in Durango in September 1996. A favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike, the brewpub has much more to offer than award-winning craft beer. Known as a town meeting place, Steamworks enjoys a bustling, fun environment. Steamworks' culinary program is unmatched in the region in both breadth and quality of offerings. The "gastropub" fare includes regionally-raised meats and sustainable seafood. Healthy salads, delicious pizzas, spicy Southwestern-style dishes, and vegetarian & gluten-free offerings provide something for everyone who's hungry. The Steam Engine Lager is "arguably the best American - Style Amber Lager in the world" as it has garnered four Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze Medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) over the years and also has taken a Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup (WBC). Steamworks has won a total of twelve GABF medals, and two WBC medals. The brewpub maintains up to 18 styles of beer on tap.
