A must visit in Ft. Collins. Small and intimate. Staff is very nice. Tour of brewery is fairly basic but their beer is fantastic. Tried a holiday spiced saison and tropic king barrel aged with peaches.

Cool little place tucked away on one of the main drags in and out of FC. Looks like a repurposed warehouse style building, with the tasting room right in the front when you walk in. Good sized L-shaped bar, with a ton of high top seating around it, and an outdoor patio with plenty of seating. Plenty of bicycle parking, too. There were 10+ taps, almost exclusively saisons, with one true sour and a couple of the saisons were infused with different things. Pretty niche, but the beer is pretty good. Plenty of swag available, and plenty of beer to go, with a fridge full of bombers, and growlers of your choosing. Worth a stop if you find yourself around the Ft Collins area.

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.
