First off, Funkwerks, come to New Mexico already. Send us your beer. We'll drink lots of it. That's what we do well in New Mexico. I'm not even making that up, we have some of the highest consumption per capita in the US. Y'all can make lots of dinero.

Second, I like this tiny little spot. It's a bit misleading as you pull up, since the place looks like a house from a Brothers Grimm story or like a tiny B&B. Bottom line, it looks small. Inside, yep, it is small. It's a small taproom, but on the Saturday I visited, there were maybe two other people there, so space was not an issue. There seemed to be a small outdoor area too, but I didn't check it out.

The beers here, yes they do include some sours (really more tart than sour, most of their beers), but a better descriptor for this brewery is a Belgian-style brewing company. There were a number of saisons/farmhouse ales on tap when I arrived and I got to try most of them. I forget the price, but for about $10 I got about 5 ounces of four different beers.

Of their year-round offerings, the Saison and Tropic King are both excellent and very approachable. The latter has a big bubblegum aroma and flavor and is on the sweeter, maltier side. These are beers anyone can get down to. Both of these beers were part of my flight and delicious. Both of these beers are in the 4/5 area.

Remi's Rye was a limited or seasonal offering available when I was there and it was great. I was crushed to discover there weren't bottles of this brew for sale in the cooler in the taproom. Remi's Rye was a 4.25/5

Raspberry Provincial I had to pay extra for, but I was happy to and got a half pour for a very reasonable price. I again love this beer, love the light, fruity wine-like character from the raspberries and the agreeable tartness. I would have bought many bottles of this but it was, again, not available in the cooler. Boohoo.

Redemption came though, in the form of Dahlia. This is a big beer, but very drinkable and creamy. I can scarcely recall the details (this was stop three after NB and Odell), but I remember loving it and picking up a bottle (yes, this one was in the cooler). This beer is like a 4.3/5. Just excellent.

I also tried the Sorachi, which as the name suggests (I think!) is brewed, or maybe dry-hopped with Sorachi hops. It was a tasty saison with a different hop profile that I enjoyed. Again, I should have taken notes, but I can assure you it was good. 4/5

Overall, Funkwerks is a great stop, particularly if you're fortunate enough to arrive and have the place all to yourself. The service was friendly (one person behind the bar) and the artwork a nice distraction. There are a few nice shirts and hats for sale and of course, beer to go.

The flight of five was friggin' awesome, each a five ounce pour in a full sized snifter. Raspberry stuff was out of this world!

Service was great, and we rented bikes there too for very cheep out of the library lend program.

Got a four pack of saison to go, reasonably priced.

Funkwerks is one of the truly different places, specializing in saisons and Belgians. Absolutely must try.

As a fan of Saisons I dropped in to Funkwerks it's a small unassuming location with seating inside and out. As we don't get their beers in Georgia, I opted for a tasting flight. It was enjoyable to taste a series of beers that are all variations on similar theme.

This was my first visit, but when I'm in Fort Collins again it certainly won't be the last. In a city teaming with beer offerings, Funkwerks is certainly worth a visit.

Funkwerks has some great beers! They are where I take all my first time Sasion drinkers and folks that like Belgium beers. They have a nice patio for the summer and a cool selection of art on the walls. If you would like to try something you've never had anywhere else. Swing in and try one of the beers made with Asian teas they are truly unique.
