This is a nice little place next to a homebrew shop, just off the main College Ave (or Street...whatever). Close to Coopersmiths if that helps.

Anywho, looks small at first, but it has another room to the side with nice comfy chairs and a medium sized porch out back. Bar itself is a bit small, and since I went there early in the afternoon I'm not sure if they have wait-staff.

But, the beers are good to good-good. Friendly staff, but it seemed they liked the music playing more than the customers. hard to order and ask questions. True, the Dead was playing...but i was thirsty.

Several books and table games available. The aroma from the brewing facility permeates, which is awesome, but a bit tough to make out what's in my glass. No worries, I drank it anyway

this is one of the coolest little breweries in fort collins. its got a very earthy hippy organic vibe to it, like it would belong better in boulder or something, but the space is great, semi divided into different rooms, comfortable furniture and an oddly shaped but ideally placed bar. plenty of beers on to choose from, all with creative names and recipes to match. the belgian wit on cask was awesome, they had a delicious barrel aged porter, as well as a couple of belgian styles that hit their marks. the staff was real friendly and also fit the hippy organic vibe pretty well. they informed me this place has been open almost five years, looks like they are off and running really well in that time, with a few gabf medals adorning the walls. i liked the wide range of styles and the cozy atmosphere of the building. this is definitely a place to stop into when in downtown fort collins, its close to everything and very interesting compared to other local breweries. they have carved out a cool little identity for themselves, and the beers were great.

Another very good brewery in Fort Collins. I've been there several times. Earlier in the days and evenings it is suitable for families. Later at night it gets packed. They have outdoor seating.
Beers are all good. Service has generally been fine. They have some cool swag to buy as well.

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!
