One of those places (long known to residents of northern Colorado) that has been on my radar for a few years, but I just never made it to. Their reputation for great German beers precedes them, hence I have no real excuse why it took me so long to make it up there.
Tucked into a retail warehouse park, finding it can be a little tricky since the streets aren't all labeled. Here's a hint - it's in Anasazi park, a bit past the traffic circle, on the right.
Once you find the general area it's thankfully pretty tough to miss. They have their logo painted on their retractable garage door and another logo on the entrance.
Once inside, it's the standard warehouse brewery...but if you aren't looking carefully you won't notice that it's a warehouse. The walls are covered with their bottle artwork, the tables are all handmade and branded, and there's even a large LCD TV with the current beer line-up as well as the ingredients, ABV, fermentables, styles, etc.
Pretty nice!
This day they had 10 different beers and you could get everything from samples, to tasters, to pints, to 1L masses.
The flight was made up of a mix of mostly German-based beers, but with some historical recreations and some British styles tossed in, too. They had an alt, dunkel, German porter, weiss, rauchbier, honey wheat (Kottbusser), English brown, barleywine, export stout, & Berliner weiss with more coming in the next week.
Everything ranged from good to great, and their dunkel, porter, and weiss were standouts that I really enjoyed. I also like the Grimm's fairy tales theme for their line-up, too. Why not have a little fun with your naming conventions?
The staff was nice, and there were snacks you could order although it seems, like most brewpubs, most people just bring their own food.
Good beers, a cool place, and even a fun theme.
A definite new must-stop for me on my treks north.

I kind of love Grimm Bros. In part because I'm simply a sucker for a brewery's design. One of the reasons I love Equinox in Fort Collins so much is its small pub atmosphere and astronomically-themed brews. In a similar way, Grimm Brother's expanded space, with long wooden tables and roll up garage door that can open to the outside on beautiful days, as well as its fairy tale theme and excellent logo designs, already make it rather appealing to me.

The beer is pretty darn good, too. Not as extensive as some breweries I've seen, I'm still a pretty big fan of Master Thief, and last time I was there Farmer's Daughter was surprisingly impressive. They also had a bock that I really enjoyed, but I don't recall the name.

When we were there, we got into a conversation with one of the brewers, a friendly middle aged gentleman who was happy to go into his favorites and even let us have small samples of a few of his recommendations. Thus far, they've had one of the friendliest staffs I've encountered at a brewery.

If you only have time to visit one brewery in Loveland, I recommend this one (out of Big Beaver, Rock Bottom, Verboten, and Ale Works. I've yet to visit Crow Hop or Buckhorn). You'll have yourself a wonderful time.

Pretty small taproom but not the smallest, lots of communal table seating to maximize seating. On a nice and warm sunny day, half the front is open allowing the light and fresh air to definitely freshen the place up. Beer is well brewed for what it is for sure, even if not all styles they produce is quite my thing. But enough of them certainly are. About 8-10 beers on tap with some nice variety, some standard styles but also some unique styles that I haven't seen elsewhere. Overall, glad to have finally gotten around to checking this place out. In a state with stiff competition, I think these guys have definitely earned themselves a seat at the table. Good quality stuff that can stand up to the big boys, IMO.
