About us

Welcome to Colorado Boy Pub & Brewery
Ridgway, Colorado


Our Passion


At Colorado Boy Pub & Brewery, pizza is not just a dish; it's a passion. Established in 2008, our pizzeria is a labor of love, born out of a desire to bring authentic pizza styles to Southwest Colorado. In addition to great pizza we take pride in our house brewed craft beer.


Crafting Perfection, One Pizza and Beer at a Time


We enjoy creating pizzas that are a symphony of flavors, a dance of textures, and a celebration of quality ingredients. Each pizza is a masterpiece crafted with care and precision. Eight beers on tap from traditional English ales to creative styles and great cask ale.
