Catching up with WildEdge Brewing’s constantly evolving beer list

When it comes to inventive local beers, it’s no secret that we at DGO love the WildEdge Brewing Collective in Cortez.

Because of the ever-changing tap list, every visit seems to present a variety of new brews waiting to be tried. So, while visiting with some Montezuma County friends and colleagues recently, I decided to...

The Columbine Bar: Two-thirds dive bar, one-third museum

The Columbine Bar in Mancos is a collection of artifacts from bygone eras. Like some sort of hidden cove, it looks like it has been collecting cultural relics for decades.

The bar, which according to the plaque outside opened in 1910 (contradicting a painted sign inside dating it to 1903), is one of the oldest bars in...

Mancos’ Millwood Junction: Decent food in a rustic building

Update: The owners of Millwood Junction closed the restaurant on Dec. 23. They are currently hoping to sell it.The first thing you notice when you walk into Millwood Junction in Mancos is all the wood (presumably from a mill?). The building is so very, very ... wooden, inside and out. If...

To take a culinary trip to Kenya, you also have to take a trip to Santa Fe

The Four Corners has some pretty fantastic food – but it’s far from all-inclusive. To get certain tastes and cuisines, you have to take a bit of a drive.

East African cuisine, for instance, is hard to find on Colorado’s Western Slope. However, there are a couple places to find it in the Albuquerque-Santa Fe area. One of...

Popcorn Depot pops up in downtown Durango

If you wanted to paint a colorful metaphor and say popcorn flows through Jack Pepper’s veins, you wouldn’t be far off. He and partner Chandler Sommerfeldt just opened the Durango Popcorn Depot on the corner of sixth and Fifth Street and Main Avenue in Durango.

Before they moved to Durango last summer, Pepper was part of...

Boon’s in Farmington features Thai barbecue and friendly atmosphere

Did you know that Farmington has a Thai barbecue place?

I didn’t – but then again up until recently, I hadn’t really explored the city’s downtown area. I’ve always been content shopping among the chains and big box stores on the northeastern side of town, venturing further south on trips to specifically visit Three...

Durango’s cheesesteak stand strives for authentic South Philly experience

If you’ve walked through downtown Durango around lunchtime between October and May, you’ve probably noticed the cheesesteak guy.

Join us in giving Lauter Haus, Farmington’s newest brewery, a hoppy welcome

Every time a new brewery opens, an angel gets its wings. OK, yes we stole that very innocent line from “It’s a Wonderful Life,” but it doesn’t make it any less true.

Farmington has been blessed with a new brewery, Lauter Haus Brewing Company, and we were so psyched about it that we road tripped on down to New Mexico to...

Looking for chocolate? Creede has a festival for that

A rational person would use the two days after Thanksgiving to take it easy and eat light, leftover-based meals. Here’s an alternative: gorge on dessert.

Over the past few years, Southwest Colorado’s chocolate festivals have been vanishing. Durango’s impressive Chocolate Fantasia, a fundraiser for Volunteers of America,...

Indigenous, LGBTQ-friendly Albuquerque brewery opening Farmington taproom

Farmington fans of craft beer rejoice – your local options are growing rapidly.

Up until Lauter Haus Brewing Co. joined the scene in October, Farmington was a one-brewery town, with only Three Rivers brewery to slake its thirst. Come early 2020, however, a third brewery, Bow & Arrow Brewing Co., will join them, at...

Sorry beer purists, hard seltzers are here to stay

If you didn’t have a White Claw Hard Seltzer hangover this summer, were you even there? Apparently not as White Claws sold out across the country this year.
