I say carvers is a reasonable value for the quality of the food plus the atmosphere. The selection of the beers seems to take a back seat, but when you're doing something right (with the food) why change it? I'm curious to try their black IPA but I remember the jack rabbit and the red ale doing the trick. It's a great place to grab a bite before heading out on the town. You know your belly will be full with delicious baked goods that encase the delicious cuts of meat or many vegetarian options. You feel good about yourself after eating at Carvers... as opposed to say the Durango Diner or Oscars.

cool little brewpub in the heart of durango. some outside seating and a small little wood bar up front opening up into a big diner layout type eatery. maybe 7 or 8 beers on tap, on in the cask. knowledgeable bartender and a good crowd on hand for 11am on a friday. really enjoyed the belgian strong ale and the casked ipa. tender had some good info and a lot of funny jokes and stories. beer was good to very good, but not elite. theyve carved out a nice little niche in a fairly smal and saturated beer market (no pun intended hehe). a little expensive but we had a great time and will certainly visit again.

This place had amazing food! I mention that first because it was more impressing than the beer. I had the special of the day- Rootbeer braised Ribs. Holy Freakin Hell!!! - amazing with there house made root beer(which I got a growler to take home of). As usual the IPA was my favorite of the 12 beer sample platter I tasted. But nothing to write home about. I would go back for the food and rootbeer though! I know they serve breakfast, and hear they serve a breakfast beer! That would be worth a shot!

Visited Durango in mid-September.
Atmosphere was good, inside was average, a little tight space wise. Outside patio was excellent.
Quality was good. Overall beer and food were above average. Service was very good, Jenni our server was knowledable about the beer and very friendly. There were at least 8 beers to choose from, the usual styles were offered. Food menu was good as well, the oriental salad and rueben were tasty. Overall value was reasonable, we got out of there after 5 pints and a meal for around $50 after the tip.

A nice little place with good beer and a friendly vibe. It looks inside more like an ice cream parlor than a brew pub, very comfortable and cozy. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. The food is good - Good selection of steaks and sandwiches and a small but thoughtful kids menu. The beer was good - the Jackrabbit Pale Ale was the clear standout, though the Cascade Canyon IPA (in a cask) and the Monkeywrenched IPA were pretty good too. The Pilsener was passable. This place is a good find in a fun little town - I would go back any time I am in town.

Stopped in twice during my visit
Nice typical brewpub feel, I give bonus points for the back porch, very laid back & relaxed
All beers tried were of good quality
Service was friendly & first-rate
Selection was pretty good 8 beers on offer to include a braggot, an ESB on nitro & my favorite, their Oktoberfest ale.
My kids had decent kids meals & the wife & I had the yummy stuffed mushrooms & a brownie sundae. Some of their entrees looked awesome, but we had a late lunch
I thought the prices were right for food & drinks. I never bothered to check out anywhere else in town beside here & lady falconbury's. These 2 places had us covered. Not the best brewpub I've been to but, very solid

Carver's is the oldest brewery in Durango, which has the largest brewery per capita ratio in the nation. Boasting 4 microbreweries for it's small population base.
They quit baking bread and decided to focus on liquid bread.
They serve very good food and I have never had a bad meal there. The stuffed mushrooms are great nad they offer great fish tacos and excellant pasta.
The patio is open during the warmer months and they offer music on Sundays.
The beer is good and severla have won awards.
Now here is my only complaint (you knew I'd have one). The staff seems to be ignorant about their beers. The last two times I went I questioned them on certain aspects of the beer and they were unable to answer. Knowledge of your main product is important.
Carver's is definately worth a meal and a brew.
They now boast 100% Green Power

It had a big window front along Main Avenue with vines and a tree painted onto the window. The door, with big brass handlers, opened onto an angled vestibule. Through the vestibule, the green Formica-topped bar was at a right oblique and two tables were in the window at a button-hook right. Continuing aft, there were a few high tables and chairs along the front wall, followed by the m.d.s. just aft of the bar. In the restaurant area, booths lined each wall with standard restaurant tables and chairs in the center. Continuing further aft, down a center passageway, the kitchen was to the right, the lavatories were to the left and on a dog-leg left, there was a secondary bar area with the brewhouse visible to the right, behind glass. I was a little weary after the long trip in and decided to return the following day to try again. On that subsequent visit, I got to see the vaunted patio and I sat at the back bar with many of the brewing staff.
Beers: Lightner Creek Lager; Old Oak Amber Ale; La Plata Pilsener; Colorado Trail Nut Brown; Iron Horse Oatmeal Stout; Celebrated Raspberry Wheat; and Colorado Uncommon. They also offered a one-off called Slurry Bomber Cream Ale, which was a fund raiser for the Missionary Ridge Fire, which occurred five years prior to my visit in July 2007.

Spent a couple of night at Carvers while attending the Siebel Advanced Homebrewing class in Durango, CO. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere - especially the covered beer garden with four swings and lots of tables (careful some of them tip over easily!!). Good service. Brewmaster and owner provide us with a VIP tour. Beer selection is small but they are increasing their capacity at this location. Owner is a baker/brewer and has decided to close the bakery to install more brewing equipment. His stories about how he got started as a Microbrewer are very interesting.

This was my old hang out back in my college days. It was an easy walk down the hill from Fort Lewis. This would probably be my first exposure to real beer. Most everything the brewery does is tasty depending on your likes. My favorites included the Oak Aged Amber, Iron Horse Imperial Stout, and of course Big Grizz Barleywine. Last time I was there the beer was only available on tap or in a growler. Please do try the Stout if you get the chance. From what I can remember the food was always good. If you dont find what you like here walk around the corner to Steamworks and give them a try.
