Equinox is a must-visit if you're in Fort Collins. With the bigger breweries becoming increasingly crowded (even during what I would think are off hours), this is the most comfortable place to have a beer.

You enter into the bar area from outside and find it's dimly lit with small tables and some board games. The bar itself is a small 'L' shape with about 10 stools. There are a couple of smaller rooms off the main area but the best part of Equinox is the beer garden. It's an open air patio tucked in behind the brewery. It's quiet, shady, and a perfect place to have a beer.

Speaking of beer, they have many and I've never had a bad one. A great selection so everyone can find something to like. I especially like their porter and IPA.

Service is good but you do have to go to the bar yourself. In other words, no table service.

Overall a great hidden gem but probably not for long!

Great spot in Fort Collins, and worth a drive if you are in the Denver metro area for anything. Two entrances/exits, and the space is like two hallways, one twice as long as the other. The first one, on the left, walks you past some wooden bar seating as you make your way to the main bar, which wraps around into the second hallway/space. Long, cement poured bar. Slick. All the way out back, there is patio seating. Also, there is a small stage on the right hand side for live music. There is also some table seating here and there. Very bright and clean all the way through. Great spot. Beer to go in multiple growler forms...standard glass 64 oz, double lined metal and ceramic 64 oz that will remain cold 24 hours, and a plastic growler at 83ish oz. Great staff, great beer, all in a great town. Awesome place.

Bartender is yet another of my future ex-wives, I'm SO in love! She knew more about beer than virtually all my guy friends. Don't think this is a purely male dominated sport!

Beer was exceptional in every way. Clientele was also exceptional, in that I met a lot of really cool (albeit tree-hugging hippee type) people in this place. Certainly would be irresponsible of me to NOT recommend this place when you come through Ft Collins tho. The super-dry IPAs are half the fun!
