Craft Breweries in Steamboat

05/13/2019 | by Doug Starkey | Things to Do

Craft beer lovers will find plenty of breweries in Steamboat Springs to explore.  The Boat’s award winning breweries have you covered, from wheat to stout, and everything in between.  As the great Dave Barry said, “without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.”  Visitors come from far and wide to enjoy some of our top notch craft breweries — some of the most unique and satisfying brews you can find in Colorado. As Steamboat Springs locals, we at Four Seasons Steamboat are craft brewery fanatics. Make sure to book a weekend in the amazing city of Steamboat while checking out these fine establishments:

Butcherknife Brewing Company – 2875 Elk River Road – (970) 879-2337

Try the Amputator IPA or the Sunshine Express, you won’t be sorry.  These brews can be found on taps all over the city, but the brewery itself is a unique experience. Check out the wide variety of beers and Kombucha on tap, plus giant Jenga and other games! There is even a food truck in the parking lot to satisfy all over your bar snack cravings. Come on a Monday and take advantage of the half off growler refills!

Storm Peak Brewing – 1885 Elk River Plaza – (970) 879-1999

Storm Peak has tons of wonderful beers, like the Gaper Pilsner, our favorite! When wanting to try them all, check our their flights. Four beers for only $10 is a deal we can get behind! The brewery is the perfect social beer hall, with a large bar and conveniently location — right next to How Ya Doin Pizza and Eats, some of the best pizza in the Boat! Storm Peak has all kinds of events, such as potlucks, yoga, ski pole building, sausage fests, and luaus.

Mountain Tap Brewery – 910 Yampa Street – (970) 879-6646

This incredible brewery sits right on Yampa Street! With craft beer and wood fired pizza in a downtown beer hall, this location is great for both beer drinking or a family dinner downtown.  Right across the street from the Yampa River, Mountain Tap’s outdoor deck is a great place to hang out and enjoy beer, the sun, and the excitement of downtown Steamboat. Visit on Token Tuesday and receive a $1 token for every beer ordered to give to one of five local non-profits! It’s tough to beat the combination of beer and giving back to the community. Make a weekend out of it by renting one of our convenient downtown locations!
