Bars & Cafes
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.”
Straddling the line somewhere between an upscale dining experience and a sports bar atmosphere, Red Mountain Grill is the place husbands take their wives when they have no idea where to go. However, ladies, you won't be disappointed. The soft lighting creates a romantic atmosphere and the menu offers a variety of salads and other items for the more refined palate. And fellas, if you're lost in your conversation, take a look at one of the ten HDTV's located throughout the restaurant playing the game that you're probably missing. Don't worry about what to eat, either. They've got your steak, rib, and sandwich needs covered!
After hitting the slopes, try hitting Pug Ryan's in Dillon. This place has your daily protein allowance covered in the form of succulent prime rib, juicy steaks cooked to order, and enough ribs to feed an army. However, most patrons don't come here for the meat. They choose of the five specially-prepared house brews to compliment that perfect steak. 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!
Prost lets you feel like you are abroad in Bavaria. Drink a German beer and eat a sausage during Happy Hour between 4-6p every day. Relax after work with your friends or play a little pub game. During the live music you may be in the mood for some "schunkeln" (typical German movement sitting arm in arm on a bench in a beer garden) or dancing.
A favorite pastime for residents in the small town of Dillon, High Mountain Billiards as been sinking corner pockets, but not wallets, for some time now. There's no fuss here as only your favorite pub grub and beer are served - no frills attached. So grab a stick and sink one in the corner pocket!
It might seem a little strange that that this is the only bowling alley in all of Summit County, but with 18 lanes, a full bar, big screen TV, and even a lounge area, you'll have more than enough room to bowl that strike you've been waiting for. This is a popular destination for the younger crowd on weekends, but don't let that stop you. There are also competitions and leagues to help you get serious and step up your game. You never know, you might even get a turkey!
After your travel in the ski town of Keystone, head to the Goat Soup & Whiskey Tavern to unwind with your friends. The pub comes across as a regular watering-hole where you can down some pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) beer and whiskey shots. However, more that the drinks, it is much more famous for hosting concerts of varied local and national independent bands. Contemporary artists/ bands like Mayan Funkpocalpyse, Bill McKay Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and hundreds of others have graced its stage in the past, and impressed the discerning music lovers with some scintillating performances. Check out their calender to know more about upcoming events.
T-Bar is one of the few apres ski hangout places along Peak 8, close to where one can board the gondolas back to town. This bar typically sees a touristy crowd who have a good time picking from their draft beers as well as margaritas, wines and cocktails. They also serve standard pub food such as nachos and wings that come in huge quantities. Watch out for their happy hour specials!
Documented as the most continuous operating bar west of the Mississippi, the Gold Pan Saloon has been a favorite local watering hole for miners since 1859. You might expect a gun-slingin' cowboy to walk in through the saloon doors at any moment, but in the meantime, enjoy a drink and some food in this historical landmark.
Boasting nine televisions and two big screens, Jake's Dive Bar is where you want to be to catch the game (along with Jake's hot wings and burgers). You can also come in for dancing and cocktails on the weekends. Happy Hour is daily from 3p-7p. The venue is open daily from 11 a.m.
Napper Tandy's is an Irish pub, but their motto is "a pub that parties like a club."

Fridays, ladies can enjoy free drinks from 9-11p to the music of DJ Feister.
The Briar Rose is a former miner's grub hall up at the top of Peak 10, near the old Briar Rose Silver Mine.

Yes folks, they've got it all, and an unequivocal personality to boot.
