I have to say that seeing the score and reading the reviews after visiting this place was shocking. I noticed that there has not been a review for almost two months so that could account for the difference but nearly everything we experience was completely different that every other review.

Atmosphere: Great location in Historic Old Town Fort Collins. Separated into two physical locations by a walk way with a basement that connects the two. The place was pretty quite with less than a 1/3 of the tables filled. But our party of eight was crammed into a table in the back of the back patio. Not a good start.

Quality: The beers were grainy and inconsistent. Some were chalk full of diacytle. We had some get the samplers and others get a normal pint. Many were left on the table, unfinished. Out of eight people and a total of 11 different beers order via sampler or pint, there wasn't a good one to be had.

Service: I would have ranked it lower but we had a new server, who was being assisted by senior staff member. Service was slow, disorganized, and frustrating. Long wait times between orders and it being served. Rarely checked on during the service. Some of which can be explained by new staff. However, they were not busy at all and the senior staff should have been much more helpful especially when it is slow.

Selection: The selection was the lone bright spot in they had several styles to choose from. However, a good selection of bad beers doesn't really help.

Food: Just not good. I ordered the Devils Back Bone which is a Buffalo burger topped with garlic portabella mushroom sauce. I had high hopes and it just didn't come through. The sauce was very messy with very little mushroom and only hints of garlic. Everybody else seemed to have a similar experience.

Value: Very good prices, very poor return for your money.

I hope that our visit was an aberration and from reading the reviews I would think it was. However, our entire experience was very bad. I'm not sure how an off day would make the food, service, and beer bad. If so they had the perfect storm or bad that day.

I would say that this is one of the nicest stops I've made, if for nothing else, for the atmosphere. I wound up hanging out with several of the employees for hours, each of them knowledgeable on beer, pleasant to be around, and just generally good people. Colorado has been damn good to me, and I plan to come back to everywhere, CO as much as possible.

Beers were great, enjoyed their chili beer (really getting into this style!) and enjoyed everything I had there (samplers, glasses, tastes, everything). Watermelon beer! Yeah!

Viva Colorado!
