Kochevar`s Saloon

Established in 1886 by Jacob Kochevar and built by his hand, this iconic piece of Crested Butte history is the oldest tavern in town. Kochevar`s Saloon has had many faces; the family home, hay barn, even a bowling alley at one time. Today, you have the opportunity to meet old friends and new, in Crested Butte`s own picture window into the mining town past. Enjoy cold beer, games, lively spirits and great food, surrounded by antiques that were unearthed on this very property. Welcome to Crested Butte, and Kochevar`s Saloon: the coolest tavern in America`s Last Great Ski Town!

Montanya Distillery

Montanya Distillers is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains at 9000 ft. in the charming town of Crested Butte, Colorado. Our high alpine location makes great sense for making rum, since the altitude positively affects almost every aspect of fermenting, distilling and aging rum. Our non-GMO sugar cane comes from family farmers in Louisiana, who grow and mill for us. Our water comes from one of the purest spring and snowmelt charged aquifers in the USA. We are 100% wind powered and carbon offset. Our Montanya Rums are made by hand, from scratch, in a very traditional way using alembic copper pot stills from Portugal. We offer daily tours, tastings and a full rum bar with artisan cocktails, farm-fresh appetizers and small plates 7 days a week. We host wonderful live music on many evenings during the ski and summer seasons, and we have a gift/bottle shop on site. Come by to experience Montanya Distillers!
