Vibe: We stopped in on a late Friday afternoon and the place started getting crowded with lots of college students that were getting an early start to their weekend. Seating options were available both inside and outside.

Quality: Beers were served in glassware at the proper temperature.

Service: Our waitress was friendly and provided prompt service, including giving us an updated beer menu that had been printed minutes before listing the newly tapped beers.

Selection: The place had a total of 100 taps, nearly all of which were occupied by craft beers (there were just a handful of ciders and mead). Most of the beers were from Colorado breweries. Tasters were also available in flights of four or individually.

Food: I tried their "Garlic Cheese Bread Chicken Sandwich", which essentially became a chicken parm sandwich when you dipped it into the accompanying tomato-based sauce. We arrived during happy hour so each drink came with a free pretzel.

Exceptional selection of beer, delicious food (not your typical bar food). Get one of the burgers - you won't be disappointed. The pretzels are also outstanding (free with the purchase of a beer on Fridays from 3-5!).

Really neat bar with retro inspired decorations. Space inside is cavernous, welcoming load talking and cheers. Tap list is available in print with a time stamp. Flights can be made with any four beers allowing easy exploration of local beers. Selection is great, but seems to focus a bit more on IPAs (visited in the heart of summer). Service was friendly offering up free pretzels. Overall, a wonderful bar for craft beer lovers.

Tremendous selection of local brews and the prominence of the taps adds a nice touch to the appearance of the place. Read about this place when thrilling.com named it one of the best beer bars in 2015. Well deserved!

My family met another family here for dinner on our way to Rapid City from Denver.

Selection was good. I was happy to get Pliny the Elder on tap again for the first time in years. Aside from that, although they had many beers on tap, they didn't have anything that blew me away. But, there was plenty of interesting choices to choose from.

Vibe was kind of college/trendy, music was loud and hindered conversation.

Food was bland, but not bad.

One of my favorite places to hang out that is not a brewery. Great selection of beer, even hard to find brews.

An amazing and always changing selection that keeps me coming back. Last night I got Pliny the Elder on tap.
Many beers from obscure Colorado breweries that are fun to try. My only complaint is the terrible music.

The selection of beers here is mind blowing! Nearly 100 beers on tap plus many many more in bottles. Food is pretty damn good too but the best part is the staff, very friendly and professional. They not only know how to treat people right they also know about what they are pouring.

Very aesthetically pleasing old/historic brick type building on the outside and very modern on the inside. Don't know if I quite like that mix, but that's the direction they chose. Back lighting on the bar gave a very hip, modern feel I wasn't quite expecting. Service was a bit rushed despite the fact that it was late on a Sunday night, the bartender seemed more interested in texting on her phone than anything. Variety was outstanding, which is why I was there anyway so I could care less about the other points (that's just icing on the cake). Overall, I enjoyed it and I would go back upon visiting Fort Collins.

Stopped there for lunch today. Great atmosphere, great looking establishment. Friendly staff. The burger was great, and I love the variety of sides options. The beers... They have 100 taps, and a lot of great options. They recently collaborated with New Belgium on a Quad called Dark Side of the Prune, so I ordered that. It was awesome. My wife had Horse and Dragons Sad Panda Coffee Stout, which was great as well. We will definitely be back here.
