They're a microbrewery and pizza joint scenic downtown Salida, inside what looks to me like an old gas station. There's a selection of craft brewed beers, and interestingly, craft brewed sodas as well. I had a truly bitching limeade from the tap, something I'd never encountered. Some of my tablemates enjoyed the beers.
And the food… We ordered a capicola, prosciutto and mushroom calzone, along with their T-Guns pizza — red sauce, spinach, pepperoni, tomatoes, cream cheese and jalapenos. Wow to both of those. Just wow. The crust was rich, flavorful and tender. The red sauce was slightly sweet with a very nice seasoning that you could taste even through all the other ingredients. And the topping combinations on both dishes were just amazing. I'm kind of a nut for savory food, and this really hit the spot. Truly amazing pizza.
Moonlight Pizza is highly recommended if you're ever in that part of Colorado.
