This family friendly, casual dining spot, is the go-to for great ales, wood-fired pizza, and affordable eats by the river in downtown Steamboat Springs. with indoor/outdoor relaxing down time in a casual setting that includes outdoor seating in amenable weather.
Chef Chereen Leong Schwarz is masterful at utilizing the impressive Forno Bravo wood-fired oven to create foods that surprise and satisfy. The fresh ingredient, Neapolitan pizzas spend ninety sizzling seconds in the 700° oven, before appearing at your table.
There are crisp salads, roasted fruits and veggies, as well as the brews, ciders, wines, and other refreshing beverages to make it a complete
meal. The kiddo’s are not left hungry either – they have their very own menu of wood-fired mac & cheese, six inch pizzas and pasta specials.
Co-founder and brew master Rich Tucciarone claims it was the Indian leader Colorow’s legendary Yampa Valley curse—Once you have experienced the Yampa Valley, you are forever destined to return—that, after two decades and developing drafts near and far, caused Rich and his wife Wendy to harken back to Steamboat, bringing acquired skills and passion to their riverside brewpub.
In true form of a master, the first brew launched even before the welcome sign was hung: Picking Hops IPA premiered in June, 2016. Since then, locals, adventurers, vacationers, and parched passersby are enjoying the inventive titles and tastes coming from these brew barrels.
