Definitely worth the 30 minute drive from Ft. Collins if you're in the area. Good to get away from NB and Odell for a spell and see what the little guys are up to. Contemporary styled brewery in a large, open space. Very roomy, with lots of seating and contemporary decor. Dog friendly, which is awesome. Tasters and flights around 1.50 and 6.00 respectively, so pretty cheap. Tried all the beers they had available (9) and enjoyed them all, although none of them were super special. Baltic porter was good and very smooth considering its high ABV. Staff was friendly. No food, but then I don't go to a brewery to eat.

Crabtree's taproom is a very large, single room with a small (in proportion to the room) bar right in the center. The decor is sparse, and there is a lot of open space between the tables and bar. Bartenders are always friendly and knowledgable and sitting at the bar is a good place to strike up a conversation with a stranger over a pint. Prices (especially for growlers) are very reasonable and freshly-popped popcorn is available at no charge. In the past Crabtree has had trouble keeping a full complement of beer on tap, but I applaud them for their efforts at the new taproom where you can expect to find all 10 taps pouring a variety of regular offerings, seasonals, and specialties. Keep up the good work!

Was in Greeley so I stopped to do a flight and hopefully a bottle of a Braggot, which I tried to cellar in the basement and after some time exploded. The beers were ok, with my favorite being the porter, although their IPA was worth mentioning (a fave of mine the Black IPA was not on tap). The location was relatively new, and on an evening might be a fun place to be in Greeley. I have the feeling this place is still getting their feet under themselves and expect big things in the future, but for now the competition in Colorado is pretty tough.

maybe the best thing greeley has going for it, in more ways than one. the new location is huge, a beautiful new, or newly redone building, with a massive human capacity. brewing operation in the back still under construction, but the place is spacious and warm, big bar in the middle as an island. free popcorn going too. about 8 or 9 beers on, all the standard stuff and a couple of lovely barrel aged blends. was super impressed with the barrel monkey brown ale, as well as the bombers for sale in the cooler. guys were super nice, one of them jamming some music too. prices were fair, although the bombers to go get a bit expensive. food truck outside, lots of games to play, well attended, and room to expand. look out for crabtree beers in the future, theyve got some really neat stuff going. i liked it all, but i would stay away from the amber ale, that one hasnt hit its stride yet, but the rest of the experience was awesome. will certainly be back, especially if they ever brew the syzygy again!
