Telluride Brewing Company

Beer brought best friends and brewery owners, Chris Fish and Tommy Thacher, together; the same could happen to you! The two talented brewmasters have various craft beers coming straight from the Rocky Mountains snowmelt. The Telluride Brewing Company team actively seeks to create the perfect beer, making innovative discoveries along the way. Your crew will be more than comfortable at their Brew Pub, where they pair award-winning brews with tasty fare from Counter Culture. You cannot go wrong with their classic Mountain Beer, a German-style Kölsch.

Stronghouse Brew Pub

As this Telluride brewery’s saying goes, “Let’s Beer!” Located in downtown Telluride, Stronghouse Brew Pub remains the last surviving intact building from Telluride’s historic Four Corners corridor. The brewery’s four staples are a German-style pilsner, American-style pale ale, rotating IPAs, and a honey ginger blonde that guests rave about! You’ll be transported back in time to a mountain getaway where you can hang out, eat good food, and drink good beer. 

Smuggler Union Restaurant and Brewery

Food and brew pair well together, a fact supported by this popular brewery and restaurant in Telluride. This great establishment serves thoughtfully-sourced ingredients, drawing in fellow nature wanderers and mountain explorers looking for a nice hearty yet refreshing meal. Most menu items are made in-house with natural ingredients. Okay, we’ll stop making you hungry and make you thirsty instead! The brewery is led by Thomas Daly and offers classically-styled brews. You’ll have many drink choices to enjoy alongside their top-notch brewery cuisine.
