This is cool new spot right around the corner from my house. That bar tenders, manager, and waitresses are very cool. I have been in multiple times since they have opened and got to try a decent amount of their stuff.

Beer- They usually have at least 4 of their own beers on. Seems like a mix of standard and experimental Belgian and American beers. The Belgian stuff is pretty good but not mind blowing. I would say their American styles have impressed me the most. I have seen multiple brett and barrel beers. They definitely are not scared of sours and love treatments which is cool. Other than their beers they have at least 40 taps of guest. Good quality stuff on the wall.

People- like I said everyone is pretty friendly and welcoming. The manager "Shawn" always says hi when I roll in for a taste. They have a brewer too who is always up for a chat over a beer.

Facility- The lay out is like a regular bar or brew pub. They have a good amount of seating inside and a patio as well, plus a full bar. I like their liquor selection too, lots of cool Colorado whiskeys, small distilleries. This brew pub has a kitchen behind the bar and then the brew house in the basement. I got the tour and the brew house was cool, kept really clean and organized. They have some barrels sitting down there too.

Food- I have not tired a lot of the menu cause we try not to spend money on food but I will say I have had the guac and the sliders. The guac was terrible... seemed like it was straight out of the freezer or can. The sliders are epic though, def legit. I love the brisket. Well done, quality snack for sure. Not too cheap though. I like to snag a few when I can.

Overall- Black Bottle is a great new addition to the famous craft beer city of Ft. Collins. I really like spending time their and the best thing is they are a brew pub so they are open till 12am during the week and 2am on the weekend. Plus you can take your non beer geek friends cause they have a full bar. (1,979 characters)

Had an oatmeal stout and the sausage platter, and both were delicious. Pretty laid-back vibe. Will definitely go back. (120 characters)

I've been to BB many many times since they opened- their brews were good, lots of saison style but I have to say I enjoy their guest taps more than their brew most of the time, maybe just not my taste but it's a good local place Kinda tight on seating if the outdoor area isn't useable and it's prime time. The food quality slipped and after some lackluster meals I decided to no longer eat there, and consider it just a tap place now, a few friends had similar experiences. The food at first was really solid, a nice change for the FC area, wish it didn't slip on me, it might have improved again but I've moved on. Staff is good, never a problem. (655 characters)

A real nice place kinda nested in town, with extremely tasty beers! Lots of stuff on tap, including plenty of their own beers, and a good selection of other breweries too, and bottles to go of both.

One of the many, many, MANY great places in fort collins, must-visit (yeah, there's a LIST!). (297 characters)

I like Black Bottle. This place is growing on me every time I stop in. So, let me start by saying I've had few bad experiences with the food. I was served cold or dare I say still frozen mac n' cheese on my second visit in. I'm not one to send back food most the time I'm happy to eat what someone has worked so hard to make. This however I couldn't do, I sent it back my server was very nice about it. However when it came back it was the same dish cheese added to the hole I made and microwaved again. That being said the beer selection is great and the people are very nice. They have been making some fun and innovative beers as of late. Stop in have a beer (or 2) but skip the food. (687 characters)

The Black Bottle Brewery is a great place to stop for some great local Fort Collins brews. Their selection of brewed on the premise beers are really great. The Cerealicious Cinnamon is amazing, especially in cold weather. In addition, they have other local Fort Collins favorites from New Belgium and other Colorado breweries. The Black Bottle Brewery will not disappoint. (372 characters)
