While playing in Denver, Adam, Jeremy and I went on a hike to St. Mary's Glacier 40 minutes from Denver. On our way back, we stopped in Idaho Springs for a meal and ended up striking GOLD at Tommyknocker Brewery and Pub.
What's a Tommyknocker? Find out here.
The quaint mountain town mainstreet in Idaho Springs, Colorado. Idaho Springs is a historical mining town where gold was first found in the 1800's.
The menu was not your usual pub fare. With a selection of many different types of burgers, salads and sandwiches that were all very unique, Tommyknockers was the perfect place to end up after a long day in the mountains.
Adam had the Grilled Artichoke that came with a raspberry balsamic reduction drizzled on top with melted garlic butter on the side for dipping.
I had the Mountain Man Chicken Fried Steak with Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes and smothered rich homestyle gravy. Delicious. Perfectly seasoned steak with smooth peppery gravy. The mashed potatoes thick and buttery. Hands down the best country fried steak I have ever had.
Jeremy had the Green Mountain Burger that came open faced, smothered in their award winning green chili (below) with melted sharp cheddar cheese.
The Tommyknocker Brewery. I had the Alpine Glacier Lager (pictured above).....so cold and refreshing. Now, im not a big beer drinker, but this beer was so clean and refreshing. Of course I had to be careful, alcohol hits you a lot harder at high altitudes.
