This place has a great feel to it. Three separate sections - excluding the bar - to get cozy in. Pleasant lighting, quiet music (i.e. you can have a conversation with the people across the table without losing your voice).

The beer is great, and there's a lot to choose from. By "great," I mean it's delicious. Serving over 10 rotating brews, they keep things fresh. Seems like they update the tap list every week. I'm always eager to see what they've got flowing!

If you're on your way through Fort Collins you've got to stop here. Great beer, great environment.

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.
