Four stars because they had Le Terroir and La Folie on tap. These two beers are phenomenal, particularly the latter which I could drink 5 times a day, pour over cereal, throw in a smoothie, dip cookies into, and shower strippers with. It's damn good.

Zero stars to the gal that does the tour check-ins and had a stick up her rear, looked at me and my family with disgust for some unknown reason before even exchanging a word with me. My understanding is this place is employee-owned, so shouldn't you be happy? Shouldn't you have an extra incentive not to have that shitty face when you address me or look disdainfully at my child.

Four stars for the gear they sell here, particularly the hats, which are stylish and very reasonably-priced at $18.

Five stars to the gentleman with hearing aids working behind the bar that was polite, attentive, and helpful and made up for the stuffy tour check-in lady (it occurs to me she's probably tight because that's her title at the brewery).

One thing of note, I asked to taste a few beers before committing and ended up getting $2 sample pours. I'm not sure if they just don't do tastes, or if I just failed to communicate correctly, but either way, $2 for five ounces of La Folie and Le Terroir is well worth it. Of course, bigger pours are available, but hell, it was 11 AM.

As for the tour, if you don't have all day and would like to hit Odell and Funkwerks and any other breweries in Fort Collins, know that they say it will take about an hour and a half, which seriously cuts into your drinking time elsewhere. With this in mind, I skipped the tour (which I was waitlisted on anyway) and chose to avoid further interaction with stick-in-the-mud tour check-in lady.

Also, they have a Rolle Bolle court and a food truck in the outside area, two other nice touches. Plus, there's a ton of bicycle parking.
