Description: 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!

Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

In the southern Colorado, in such a small town, what a grand find. The beer is fresh and brewed right there on site. The food is great. The staff and atmosphere could not be better. Say outside and had a great meal with great beer and wine and great friends. I highly recommend a stop in.

“Be Prepared to wait wait wait”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The concept of counter service is dumfounding...yes the food was good...yes the live music was fun..yes, there is a sign on the door that tells you that an hour wait for pizza is standard practice...what they don't tell you is that you will wait in a long line to order at the counter, then take your number and drinks to your table to wait (if you have a large party, this may take several trips)...if you forgot anything, go back and wait in line again...if your order arrives with something wrong, go back and wait in line...oh, and you guessed it, the "wait staff" cannot take your payment! Go back and wait in line to pay your bill...dine and dash never looked so tempting! Unbelievable, really...

“great brewery atmosphere, beer and pizza”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Dolores River Brewery is a classic brewery with great beers and pizzas and outside patio with live music weekend nights during the summer. Mark Younquist, master brewer, and his kitchen crew serve up great drinks and eats! It's a popular local hang-out and tourists always enrich the scene!

“casual, comfy atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I enjoy the brewery. Good beer and food. One of my favorites is the Shrimp Pesto pizza. I get it topped with fresh avocado. Yum! When the weather is nice, l enjoy their patio seating. Live entertainment occasionally. Definitely nothing fancy -mostly counter service, which is fine with me.

“Great pizzas and beer!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

What better way to end your day after hiking and being outside than to stop in here for pizza and beer for dinner? Great variety of beers and the pizzas are filling and delicious. Been coming here since 2006. Yum.
