Stopped in here after trying their normal Saison at Freshcraft and talking to the brewers a little at the GABF. I love the idea of the place, and it's also conveniently located near several other breweries I visit.
Funkwerks is located in the old Fort Collins Brewing facility a mile or two east of Odell and the new FCB.
The tasting room looks a bit like a log cabin with a bar and a 1/2 dozen tables.
Drinking options consist of their current line-up (6 beers) in snifters, growlers, and sampler tulips. They also sell bottles when available and snacks like cheese and cookies.
Everything the brew is a variation on a Saison, or similar styles. Right now they have Casper (a light saison), White (a strong wit) their "normal" Saison, Maori King (a hoppy imperial saison using NZ hops) and 2 spins on the same recipe of German malts and hops. One is using Belgian yeast ("Belgian Resistance"), and the other is using a French Biere De Garde Yeast ("French Resistance"). For the same recipe, they taste worlds apart and are both terrific.
I did an $8 sampler of all 6 and was shocked to see that for that price you essentially get about 1/3 of a tulip of each one. It's one of the best values I've seen anywhere.
The waitress gave us a nice rundown of each beer, and they also had a printed sheet with details on each one as well.
I really have little to nothing to complain about with Funkwerks. Even if someone doesn't like Saisons, I think the Casper and White would still appeal to them.
On all future FC trips for me, Funkwerks is an absolute, definite stop for me...maybe even ahead of all of the other places. Large samples and great beers = winner for me.

Located in an industrial area just off a main arterial two lane road, it's pretty easy to find. We had a rental and found a parking spot on premise.
It's cute inside, bright green and other pastel paint on the walls. There is a small area with swag for purchase and a good assortment of items. The main entry bar/ gift area is tiny but there is a large outdoor patio for warmer days. Staff was on point with descriptions and gave us space to stare off and enjoy the place with a flight. I'm not down with the sour town but there was still an option for me and I appreciated that.
If you or someone you are with enjoys sour's, you need to sop here.

Cool little brewery that does fantastic funky beers. Staff was attentive. Beer selection was good. Tip: get a flight. Half pours of 6 of their beers will give a good idea of their lineup and the pour is more generous than the normal small tasters.
