Situated in a warehouse district of Longmont, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Tasty Weasel is easy to miss if you're just driving by. It's your typical large rectangular box building with some temporary signage denoting Oskar Blues logo.
Once inside, you realize the tasting room is really just a small quadrant of what otherwise functions as their brewing facility.
Huge stainless fermenters surround you separated from the bar area by an eight foot corregated metal wall. The wall is lined with O.B. beer cans along the top and features artwork and photographs of blues musicians. Some neon Dale's signs and memorabilia, a couple of bike jerseys and guitars hang from the walls.
There's a 20' long stone-topped bar with about ten stools. A number of iron tables with oak tops are surrounded by iron chairs with red velvet seats. People play some sort of wooden skeball game and eat peanuts, throwing shells on the floor around them. There are some books to read and a Mac, if you're interested. The crowd is lively and friendly. Some bluesy rock music plays on the speakers.
On tap, you can have Dale's, Old Chub, and Mama's Little Yella Pils for $4/pint. Gordon is $5, TenFidy and Oaked Fidy are $6.
Cans and growlers are available for carry-out. T-shirt, pint glasses, etc. also for sale.
Framed issue of Beer Advocate on the wall and current issue available to read as well.
A message to newcomers on the wall, "Be nice or leave."

Nice funky atmosphere, cool looking setup behind the bar. Skeeball machines are always a plus. Small and slightly chaotic merch area, was at the opposite end, with plenty of small tables in between. Great selection of beers, some nitro, some barrel aged, and even a firkin to choose from. Prices were well marked, fairly reasonable, and bartender was quick and prompt to assist. She definitely seemed to know several regulars, but still made sure to answer questions for others. No real food to choose from. Plenty of ways to take beer to go, crowlers, glass growlers, and what appeared to be nice insulated metal ones as well. No food here, but Homemade Liquids and Solids was maybe 1/2 mile away.
