We had an odd trip to Funkwerks. We had a Groupon, which fro $25 got both my girlfriend and I a full flight of all six beers they had on tap, a really great looking tulip glass with the FW logo on it and a couple of bombers to go. Overall, a great deal.

However, about 30 minutes after we arrived a large bus pulled up and dropped off a bachelor party, so it immediately went from quiet, comfortable afternoon to wild and crazy mid-bachelor party. Granted, this is not the breweries fault, but when one middle-aged, overweight guy decided to take his shirt off, and three other dudes followed his lead it really killed the atmosphere. Again, not the fault of the brewery, however, nothing was done about it. The bar and wait staff just looked disgusted and allowed it to continue, which was quite irritating.

The quality of the beer was good, although, with only Belgian-style brews, I was not sampling my favorite types of beer. The portions, however, were very generous and a few of the beers I will seek out to try again upon moving to Boulder in the summer. The Saison in particular was good.

Our table service was outstanding, minus the lack of control that our waitress and the bartenders had over the pack of over-the-hill former frat boys. Otherwise, she was attentive and informative, something I appreciate in a brewery's waitstaff. I can not stand going to a brewery and having some cute college chick deliver a tray full of beer samples and then not have any ability to discuss any of it. I am here to LEARN and experience, not to look. There are Hooters and strip clubs everywhere, I don't need that at my brewery.

The selection was somewhat minimal, which is to be expected from a new, small brewery. The line up that they do offer, however, was clearly crafted with care.

No Food.

Great little place just short distance from Odell and other breweries.

Cool small tasting room/gift shop upon entering. It was crowded in the front, but in the barrel room out back they have more seating on picnic tables, so we set up shop there with our taster tray.

Quality is quite good. These guys aren't quite at Crooked Stave/Casey's level, but they aren't to far behind when it comes to Saisons/Sours. Plus they had a nice wide selection of beers to choose from.

Service was really good, place was busy, but we were quickly served by the very pleasant staff up front.

Great place to put on any beer tour through Fort Collins.

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.
