Located west of town at 1885 Elk River Plaza, Storm Peak Brewing Co. makes its beer in a 4,600-square-foot, great-to-hang-out-in facility with 20 taps and garage doors opening to a large patio with fire pit.

Mainstays include Maestro IPA, Mad Creek Kolsch and the rotating, dry-hopped Lawnmower series, but it also experiments with everything from coffee-infused beers to kettle-soured ales.

“We’re focused on our tap room and creating an atmosphere everyone can enjoy,” co-founder Wyatt Patterson said. “We’re proud to call Steamboat home and love sharing our passion for beer.”
