Desperado Imperial Red

This specialty beer is a deep red in color and has an 8 percent alcohol content by volume. It has a heavy body and a medium hop aroma that comes from the distinctly tropically fruity Eldorado hop. This beer is brewed with more varieties of malt than any other we produce. The resulting complex flavor is very rich with smooth caramel flavors and hints of darker dried fruits. There is a mild hop bitterness detected in this beer.

  • Malts: Two Row Pale (USA), Munich (Germany), CaraMunich Type 2 (Germany), Crystal 77, Crystal 60 and Crystal 120 (UK), Rolled Oats (USA), Chocolate Malt (Chile), Melanoidin Malt (Germany)

    The rooftop dining is quite popular, easier to get a seat if you arrive at off hours. Much of the upstairs patio is covered so even during rainy afternoons it is quite nice (although some might find it chilly). The indoor seating is plentiful and quite charming as well.

    We dined here for lunch on our way through town and we were so glad we did. The restaurant features indoor and rooftop seating - I suggest roof top if the weather permits. The view was amazing!

    Best beer in Ouray. The rooftop patio is amazing in nice weather. The food is really good, I've had burgers, salads, and chicken. Don't expect fries, everything is boulder chips - which is fine by me. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

    After a long drive from Denver we found ourselves both hungry and very thirsty. This brewery was definitely what the doctor ordered... Good food and good beer in a nice location with views...

  • Great choice when visiting Ouray

    Yelp - February 2, 2017

    This is a great choice when visiting Ouray. It's located right across the street from the Hotel Ouray, which is our favorite place to stay there. After a long day in the mountains, this makes a really great place to kick back and have a few drinks. The food is great too. The atmosphere is awesome, with several floors. The rooftop patio is the best part in my opinion. Definitely try it!

    We drove up to Ouray for lunch. Not many restaurants open since it was winter. We ate lunch at the brewery, it was very good, love the seats at the bar.

  • Great food

    TripAdvisor - June 30, 2017

    Across the street from Hotel Ouray is the Ouray Brewery, a three story brew-pub in downtown Ouray Colorado. The food is excellent - great BBQ pulled pork, great salads. We ate there several times during a recent stay on Ouray. The beer is good too. I would go back.

    The food was good. The beer was good. The staff was great, they made our family with a child under two feel at home. Give it a try.
