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.

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.
