Discover Your New Favorite Beer at These Breweries in Durango

Whether you want to sip your favorite beers or discover a few new ones, grab your friends and head to a locally owned brewery. They serve everything from lagers to IPAs. The breweries near our Durango apartments include:

Steamworks Brewing Co.

A Durango fixture since 1996, Steamworks Brewing Co. has become a favorite watering hole among locals and visitors alike. It is known as a town gathering place and is where you can watch your favorite sports teams in action. House brews include Steam Engine Lager, Lizard Head Red, and Blackside Stout. Enjoy a pint with an Aloha burger or the black and blue country fried steak.

Carver Brewing Company

Brothers Jim and Bill Carver started their careers at a bakery in their Wisconsin hometown. They later moved to Durango, and opened the Carver Brewing Company. It was the first brewpub in the Southwest and is one of the most medaled breweries on the Western slope. Beers on tap include Old Oak Amber Ale, Lightner Creek Ale, and Colorado Nut Brown Ale. Six-packs are available to go.

Ska Brewing

Known for its good vibes, Ska Brewing opened after Dave and Bill decided to share their passion for beer. They created a lively setting that is also environmentally friendly. The tables and bar tops are made from old bowling alleys, while the walls are insulated with recycled blue jeans. Flagship beers include Mesa Guava IPA, Pink Vapor Stew, and True Blonde Ale. Enjoy your beer with a brat dog. It comes topped with pico de gallo, applewood smoked bacon, and Mexican logger queso.
