I thought of this quote from “thedeliciousday.com” as I entered the brewery.
“More beer brewed daily (80 varieties) than in any other city in the US + extra thin air to get you drunker – faster” (Denver, CO)
Edgewater Tap and Grill is located at the end of 9th Street. Their motto is “With deep roots in the Grand Junction community and our hearts in Colorado beer, we’ve come to South Downtown to thrive at the edge of the river. The Grand Valley is our playground and Edgewater is your Pub.
If you are familiar with Kannah Creek Brewing Company then you will know the micro brews here. The reason to build Edgewater is to brew,bottle and distribute the microbrews while adding a small comfortable environment for a bite to eat and cold brew.

Edgewater officially opens on Thursday May 9, 2013 11:00 AM. The patio will be a great gathering place when the weather is nice. We were fortunate to attend the pre-opening practice night for the staff.
Now on to the menu:
There are a handful of appetizers offered. The Edgewater staff votes that the fried green beans are the best pick from the app menu. I think the buffalo drummies and the fried cheese curds sound interesting. We did not try any of the appetizers.
The main menu consists of Salads, Burgers, Bratwurst, and Big City Red Hot Dogs finishing with a create your own called “Take it to the Edge”
We shared the “The Rado” burger, BBQ Bacon Burger and Philly Bratz” My personal favorite was the Rado Burger – Bacon, Avocado, tomato, green chilies, chipotle ranch and provolone cheese. Each entrée comes with a side. The side choices are hand cut French fries, tempura beer battered onion rings, BBQ baked beans, Apple curry slaw.
The hand cut fries are small and seasoned nicely, the onion rings are HUGE and the baked beans are bland. The ketchup is chipotle seasoned very delicious and the bbq sauce has a bit of stout in it very good as well.
The atmosphere is very relaxed you won’t find your favorite game on TV in this pub. It’s a place where friends can come together and enjoy a cold beer and great meal.
I loved the added touch in the rest room. Fresh flowers and hand lotion!
So head on down to Edgewater Tap & Grill ask for my friend Suzanne and she will take excellent care of you!
