Pateros Creek is the newest (for now…) brewery in Ft. Collins. Located a few blocks north of Coopersmith’s & Equinox, it’s still an easy walk the other breweries or anywhere in the old town area.
The day I arrived they had a pretty active outdoor area and occupied a fair amount of the lot they’re housed in. There were a few large tables in the sun (plus a live music area) and a tent covered patio attached to the brewery itself. When you walk in, there's a 8-10 seat L-shaped bar and 5-6 stand alone tables. Everything was covered in “real” re-used wood so it looks a little like an old west bar.
There were quite a few taps to try. One of the larger selections around in fact. They include a Kolsch, rye pale ale, ESB, brown porter, English mild, gluten-free cream ale, gluten-free coffee ale, Imperial wheat pale ale, vanilla porter, and Irish red.
The ESB, Vanilla Porter, and English mild were all extremely good. The Kolsch was diacetyl-heavy, and the wheat ale tasted like they just threw a lot of hops at a bad wheat beer. It was on the verge of horrible. The others were pretty good, although the 2 gluten-free beers were excellent for what they were. People with celiac disease pretty much owe it to themselves to head here as a result.
Service was friendly and there were pretzels to snack on. Beers weren’t expensive and pretty much everything (except the gluten-free beers) was under 6% ABV, too.
Not exactly my favorite stop in town, but certainly a worthy addition to the FC scene. They were busy and I noticed the English mild was a big seller, which is a pretty cool concept that would’ve been unthinkable a few years ago.
My first impression was unremarkable, but we'll see where they end up in a year or two.

great little spot thats been around awhile now, several years i think, but just getting into the canning game. never been to stoked on anything from the can, but the brewery itself is another story. a great diversity of beers on tap, including some really cool stuff. was most impressed by the rattlesnake jack, a lacto pitched tart blackberry peanut brew that sounds horrible but tastes incredible. also was pumped on the use of maple in the shimsham, so delicious without being too sweet. the taproom is tiny with a cute little bar, but there is outside seating and then a separate game room thats a lot bigger. cute and friendly girl behind the bar that was generous with the sampling and rather well informed compared to the taproom girl standard. the brewer is a super nice guy, humble and creative, and the prices are ultra reasonable. i will definitely be back to this place, and would absolutely love to see them start canning some of their more interesting seasonal brews. maybe the most underrated brewery in colorado.

Atmosphere - quaint place, but I hear I missed out on ping pong and fooseball. Will have to go back and check it out. The beetle pine bar was gorgeous.
Quality - from what I had it was all pretty good. Nothing amazing, but good quality for sure.
Service - the bartender was the perfect combination knowledgeable, friendly, and not overly in your face.
Selection - decent selection for a small place that has not been open too long.
Overall - Job well done. Will have to visit again next time I am in FoCo
