Equinox is a must-visit if you're in Fort Collins. With the bigger breweries becoming increasingly crowded (even during what I would think are off hours), this is the most comfortable place to have a beer.

You enter into the bar area from outside and find it's dimly lit with small tables and some board games. The bar itself is a small 'L' shape with about 10 stools. There are a couple of smaller rooms off the main area but the best part of Equinox is the beer garden. It's an open air patio tucked in behind the brewery. It's quiet, shady, and a perfect place to have a beer.

Speaking of beer, they have many and I've never had a bad one. A great selection so everyone can find something to like. I especially like their porter and IPA.

Service is good but you do have to go to the bar yourself. In other words, no table service.

Overall a great hidden gem but probably not for long!

Packed on a Wednesday evening during dinner time-- despite very limited food selection.

Consistently good taste across the range of beers.

Good service and advice from the bartenders.

Very broad selection: 21 beers across categories that included specialty, nitro (beer engine), and their regular draft varieties

this is one of the coolest little breweries in fort collins. its got a very earthy hippy organic vibe to it, like it would belong better in boulder or something, but the space is great, semi divided into different rooms, comfortable furniture and an oddly shaped but ideally placed bar. plenty of beers on to choose from, all with creative names and recipes to match. the belgian wit on cask was awesome, they had a delicious barrel aged porter, as well as a couple of belgian styles that hit their marks. the staff was real friendly and also fit the hippy organic vibe pretty well. they informed me this place has been open almost five years, looks like they are off and running really well in that time, with a few gabf medals adorning the walls. i liked the wide range of styles and the cozy atmosphere of the building. this is definitely a place to stop into when in downtown fort collins, its close to everything and very interesting compared to other local breweries. they have carved out a cool little identity for themselves, and the beers were great.

Another very good brewery in Fort Collins. I've been there several times. Earlier in the days and evenings it is suitable for families. Later at night it gets packed. They have outdoor seating.
Beers are all good. Service has generally been fine. They have some cool swag to buy as well.
Add to your places to visit in FC.
