Stop #250 on my world brewery tour.

Visited on a Friday around 12:30 the week of GABF. Got the only open table in the small tasting room moments before the Ale Street News bus tour arrived filling the room to capacity.

There were nine beers available. I believe all of them use their house saison yeast with varying malt, hops, adjuncts, and wild yeast.

You have the option of flight 1 or flight 2 in terms of pre built samplers....

Flight 1
Key Lime Rye - rye & barley malt with key lime juice
Saison - flagship saison
Motif - high gravity saison
Hiiscus Resistance - hibiscus added to Resistance

Flight 2
Cochon - Cascade & Centennial, house saison meets APA
Southern Tropic - imperial saison w/ Rakau hops
Chardonnay Barrel Blonde - brett beer
Belgian Resistance - German Munich and Noble Hops

We went with flight 2. While the descriptions are vivid, the actual flavors were very subtle and some of the beers we had difficulty determining the written descriptions.

They had quite a few barrels in the back room and I hope that leads to some Belgian style's with bugs and critters a year or so down the road.

A small, cozy brewery tap room that is right up my alley specializing in Belgians.

Coolest bar I've ever been at. I thought their sessions were pretty decent also. They have an outside section with cornhole and monster jenga and all kind of other board games. They also do tours which was really cool.

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.
