Stop #251 on my world brewery tour.

Located in a low brick building in historic downtown Ft. Collins next to a very small homebrew shop (same owners).

Very cozy interior with brick, wood, and a front lounge areas with a big table and board games. Small garden patio out back with the ~8 bbl. custom built brewery exposed when the garage door is open.

We split a sampler and had our world rocked by a roughly 2 oz pour of a ghost chili beer. I spoke with the asst. brewer who told me they used 10 dried ghost chili's in a 3 gallon batch (dry hopped). We struggled mightily to get it down with no avail - and we like spicy food!

Other beers were all solid. Really like the beers and atmosphere here. Wish I had taken better notes on the rest of the beers.

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.
