Dolores, Colorado


Dolores River BrewingA casual place where you can meet new friends and old ones, where no waiter will ever hover near your table, where the beer flows from the faucets like honeydew vine water, and where if you need a good slice of pizza, you’ll swear you died and went to heaven! Brewing great beer is their passion, living a life, full of friends, fun, and great music is our pursuit. Community is really everything. Ask them why they live here, and they might tell you, or they might just let you just find out for yourself…
