Ouray Brewery

Ouray

Ouray, pronounced “YUR ei”, is what I think of as the typical mountain town. It is lined with historic buildings all in a row down a main street. It feels natural, like it has been there for a 100 years and will be there for 100 more. I actually liked it more than Telluride which felt a little more forced and crowded. Telluride is more popular and touristy while Ouray has the authentic feel.

Ouray Brewery

The Ouray Brewery was a very cool place unlike what I have seen before. They had some patio seating upstairs but I stopped at the bar area on the first floor. The first thing that is hard to miss, is that the bar “stools” are actually suspended from the ceiling on thick steel cables. The small table that I sat at was also suspended with a cable. For the first time I didn’t bash my knee on the table legs!

The brewery also has exposed wood and vents and gives that old mountain town feel to the design. I really liked the feel of it.

The Food

As someone who appreciates a witty name I was completely sold on the “Cluck Norris” sandwich for lunch. I was a bit concerned the sandwich would be able to beat me up though. The “Cluck Norris” was a grilled chicken breast topped with green apple arugula slaw, smoked gouda, a drizzle of BBQ sauce and a jalapeño aioli.

This chicken was really good and would probably make its namesake proud. The BBQ sauce had a nice sweetness to it. The gouda gave each bit a nice, almost nutty flavor to it and the Arugula slaw provided a nice cool crunch. The chicken was cooked perfectly and and the mix of the textures and tastes made for an amazing sandwich. I really enjoyed this and it was perfect after a long day of hiking. If you find yourself in Ouray give the Ouray brewery a shot!

Finding the Ouray Brewery

Luckily Ouray isn’t very big so it is pretty easy to walk the downtown strip and find anything you were looking for. The Brewery is located at 607 Main Street on the corner of 6th and Main. There isn’t much parking around so you will have to find some street parking or walk from a hotel if you are staying in town.

I have added this restaurant and all of the restaurants I have been to on my interactive map that you can find here.
