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.

biked over to funkwerks from odell - a straight shot just a few miles down the road in an industrial area.

funkwerks is pretty bare bones but the backyard is very chill with a number of barstools, a bags set and some grass to spread out in.

beer quality is exceptional - definitely enjoyed everything i had from funkwerks on this most recent trip. To-go bottle selection was maybe 6 or 7 different variations. A must hit in Fort Collins. You can't skip Odell I don't think, but I much prefer Funkwerks.

First time here, and I'm really enjoying it!

Small taproom, constructed out of predominately wood siding, and floors. Small "tin roof" style bar, with 7 stools. (2) 4 top high tops, (1) 3 top high tops, and (3) 2 top high tops. There is an outdoor area with a slew of picnic tables. I do wish however that it were less windy outside, because I'd be out there enjoying the awesome temperature and sunshine.

There's room for 12 beers on their taps, but only 7 on today. Personally I'd recommend their standard Saison if you havent had it before, but having had it, I went with a Nelson Sauvin single hop Saison and it was great - so try a different version of it if possible.

No major food but they do have cheese plates and snacks.

If you're in the area, I strongly recommend stopping in. Fun, small place, with some great beers!

The taproom had a nice selection of their beers at reasonable price on tap. They also offer a variety of bombers for purchase to take home. They also have a nice patio and grassy area where dogs are welcome. They also have beam bag toss which is fun on a nice day.

This was a nice first stop in Fort Collins on day two of our cross country trip, especially for the saison drinkers in the crew. Funkwerks is located in a nondescript industrial area on the outskirts of tow, about five minutes from Odell/Fort Collins/New Belgium. There is a small tasting room inside along with some outside seating. It was a hot day so we opted for a high top inside.

We grabbed a standard sampler to start, then each had a couple of smaller pours. The Solenna (dry hopped saison with brett) and the single hop saisons were most interesting to me. I was less impressed with the regular leuven (kind of a diapery berliner weisee) but the raspberry leuven was ok. Biere de garde was just ok for me too.

Grabbed a couple of bottles to go and on to our next stop. A worthy stop.

If you like Belgians and funk, then this is the place for you. Beers come in tulip glasses. That includes tasters! A very cool touch so that you get to experience the beer properly. Usually, what they have on tap is available in bottles. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very large outside area while the interior is fairly limited seating wise. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Small small tasting room, Crooked Stave's old place I believe. 5 or so bar seats and 4 or so tables, max I recall.

Who cares on the size, all the beer's are phenomenal. Must love Saisons and Brett beers obviously though. They had 6-10 on tap. I did a sampler so I don't recall the exact amount. Many special beers plus their standards.

Bottles to go from a cooler which is great.

Service was courteous and quick. Would go here quite often if I lived in the area. A must hit for sure if you are anywhere close to here.

This is easily one of the most funkiest colored and warm looking breweries I've been to.

In a small industrial section, behind service roads for auto parts shops, is a very green and purple and yellow looking building.

Once inside the place is filled with warmth and lots of bright sun. It is small, but there is attention to detail here. Vintage replica bar counter is 50s boomerang, the chairs are nicely shapped, and the wall is painted a soothing green with circular bright tap handles that showcase their beer.

I haven't tried every single breweries beers in Colorado, but this one was certainly my favorite. Their takes on saisons are really nice and balanced, many bursting with aromas (Passion Fruit Montagne was particularly wonderful on the nose).

The service is very cherrful and solid, and the front staff know their product. Selection is about 10 on tap beers and bottles, with maybe 2 guest taps, but I wouldn't come here to drink anything else but Funkwerks.

Easily my favorite brewery to go drink a beer in, worth a return visit if in the area.

A cool little place that is very laid back and chill. A handful of beers on tap; the only two staples being their Saison and Tropic King. The rest rotate, some stay longer than others with their weekly special kegs being around the shortest (duh!). Service is decent; prompt and helpful. The quality of the beer is great, like I have come to expect from FW. If you want a local Belgian styled beer no place in Colorado does it better than these guys. My biggest gripe was that they didn't offer growlers. That said, probably my favorite taproom to hit up here in Fort Collins.

my favorite of the fort collins stops so far. tiny multicolored tap room with a great outdoor patio. very cozy feel going on. maybe 7 beers on tap, all of them outstanding, and the head brewer on hand to share his latest creation from the back room, which i wont give away, but you will like it. some local cheeses on offer to compliment the beers. sampler was an amazing deal, 7 2/3 full tulips for maybe 9 bucks, sensational. ive always like their beers, and i like them even more after this visit. not to be missed!
