This is a nice little place next to a homebrew shop, just off the main College Ave (or Street...whatever). Close to Coopersmiths if that helps.

Anywho, looks small at first, but it has another room to the side with nice comfy chairs and a medium sized porch out back. Bar itself is a bit small, and since I went there early in the afternoon I'm not sure if they have wait-staff.

But, the beers are good to good-good. Friendly staff, but it seemed they liked the music playing more than the customers. hard to order and ask questions. True, the Dead was playing...but i was thirsty.

Several books and table games available. The aroma from the brewing facility permeates, which is awesome, but a bit tough to make out what's in my glass. No worries, I drank it anyway

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.
