We ate here twice. The food was fabulous. Loved the selfish salad and the salsa was some of the best I've had. Hubby had a portabella sandwich which he said was out of this world! The beer selection is wonderful as well.

It has been a year since I have eaten here. It is a small place with very limited seating and evening hours, I don't believe they open before 5pm. They are very busy Friday and Saturdays when they have live entertainment, which is nice, however...More

We tried three breweries in the Cortez area, and this was our favorite. We shared a salad and guacamole. Both were very good. It's a locals' favorite.

The DRB books some of the best music in the four corners area. So the next time time you hear them advertise a band, it's way worth your time to come early, grab and table, bring some friends and get some pizza before the show....More

Fun energy atmosphere. The beer of Crampis was too good. The beer was delicious. The pizza's had a nice thin crispy crust. The toppings spot on. It was a great bite. We recommend this mountain area stop. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

I've always been a huge fan of beer and pizza together but after going to Dolores River Brewery I'm an even deeper fan. I had the pale ale and the double pale and both were delicious with just the right amount of hop. The pizza...More

We specialize in community. We are not a casual dining restaurant "concept", we are a small, no wait, "micro" town gathering place. We take pride in our wares both in the beer and food dept., and strive to make you comfortable whether you're local, or just visiting. We specialize in hand thrown, wood fired pizzas and calzones, locally sourced organic salads, and delicious hot sandwiches. We also produce nearly 800 kegs of beer a year right on premise, and have numerous varieties of handcrafted beer on tap at all times as well as several rotating seasonal ales, lagers, stouts. If you're looking for something like Chilis or Applebee's, I guarantee you will be disappointed, if you're ready to get to know Dolores, drink some of Colorado's finest handcrafted beer, and perhaps meet some new friends then you're in for a great time!
