Well, since we're all here anyway, I'd suggest a stop at Two Mile Brewing* in beautiful Leadville, CO (pop. 2600).

*Opening Spring 2013.

Spring? Can't you just fast forward 3 years in a wink like the time traveling OP did?

I swear the post looked new when I read it...

There were a few good brewpubs that we visited in Astoria, OR last year before NHC.  The town isn't 200 people, but it was small and seems like it would have seasonal tourism.

Fort George is a great brewery in Astoria.

I would maybe look into breweries in ouray, silverton, and telluride, Colorado. They are all pretty small towns with a lot of tourism. Colorado boy is in ridgeway which has a population of 900. I haven't been there yet though

Well I always say we are the biggest smallest town in Texas. San Antonio has a pop of 1.5 million and only two brewpubs in the city that I'm aware of.

But you have at least four times the number of brewery/brewpubs as Fort Worth.

And twice the number as Eola, TX (pop. 218).  ;D

I visited brewpub in Mc Gregor IA. It is small town on missisipy. There is a small casino in the area.

Beer was great. Food was good and service was questionable.

As soon as I read the thread title, I was going to post about this very brewpub.  The name of the brewpub is Old Man River  They are not open year-round, so if you attempt to contact them, they may not respond right away.  I definitely agree with Thirsty Monk in regards to the beer being excellent.  I didn't eat while there, so I can't comment on the food.
