Stop #251 on my world brewery tour.

Located in a low brick building in historic downtown Ft. Collins next to a very small homebrew shop (same owners).

Very cozy interior with brick, wood, and a front lounge areas with a big table and board games. Small garden patio out back with the ~8 bbl. custom built brewery exposed when the garage door is open.

We split a sampler and had our world rocked by a roughly 2 oz pour of a ghost chili beer. I spoke with the asst. brewer who told me they used 10 dried ghost chili's in a 3 gallon batch (dry hopped). We struggled mightily to get it down with no avail - and we like spicy food!

Other beers were all solid. Really like the beers and atmosphere here. Wish I had taken better notes on the rest of the beers.

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!
