Smuggler Union Restaurant and Brewery
Smuggler Union Restaurant and Brewery is the only brewpub in Telluride, Colorado, and is located at 225 South Pine Street. Established in 1996, the Smuggler Union is named after a 100-year-old local silver mine and has been serving Telluride for over 20 years. The brewpub serves delicious food and handcrafted beers that are brewed onsite.
From the valley floor in the Telluride box canyon, one is always looking up pondering how to climb, ski or generally conquer the mountains above. Perhaps that is why we are always looking for ways to improve the overall experience of our restaurant.
We only serve the highest quality of Colorado sourced beef, pork, lamb and chicken. We work closely with farms in Delta, Montrose and the surrounding communities to establish a farm to table economy for fresh dairy, proteins and produce.
With only a few exceptions everything is made in house with natural ingredients. This includes: desserts, pickles, sausages, dressings, spice blends, cocktail syrups, bitters and more. We use non-GMO fryer oil and proudly hand cut and twice fry our potatoes.
Not to mention our delicious, seasonal craft beers brewed on site.
Speaking of which, the brewery is the pride and joy of our restaurant and boasts many medals and awards from beer competitions and festivals such as the Great American Beer Festival.
Led by our brewer Thomas Daly, the brewery offers many true classically styled lagers, a large variety of seasonals and many experimental originals.
Smuggler Union took home the Broze Medal at the 2018 GABF for their Daly’s Blonde in the “Belgian-Style Blonde Ale or Pale Ale” category.
Come see and taste why we are so happy with his work!

To proudly display that independent spirit, the Brewers Association created a symbol to unify U.S. craft breweries and those who want to support them. This certified mark gives beer lovers an easy way to identify independent craft beer.
