Of the many breweries in Summit County, Dillon Dam Brewery seems to rise above the rest. They serve up excellent brew house eats from wraps, pastas, and specialty burgers made from beef, chicken, veggie or buffalo (try the Zurich: smoked bacon, guacamole, and gruyere) to gourmet meat entrees such as “Taj Mahal Osso-Bucco" and “San Luis Pepper Duck.” Rock out to live music on Thursdays during the main summer and winter seasons, or sit outside and take in mountain views from the beer garden. And the highlight, of course, their extensive list of award winning home brews from summer ales to the “Damn Straight Lager.”

The restaurant sits in an old building that was spared when a reservoir was created in the area, flooding everything around. Therefore you might be hard pressed to find a seat without a water view.

Most of the brews are award-winning with Morningwood Wheat being the local favorite. It even won the Silver Medal at the 2003 Great American Beer Festival! So put down that can of Keystone and pop open a beer that actually tastes good!
