The Mayor is a nice place. The beer selection is extensive with 100 beers on tap. They frequently have beers that are hard to find elsewhere. However, it's kind of like cable TV- 100 channels and nothing on. I find that sometimes they don't have anything that I want. The servers are generally friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. They are a little too reluctant to provide samples of beers- after all, they have a lot of beers that most people have never tasted before. The problem is that when you are paying $8 for a beer, you don't want to get stuck with one that you don't like. We ordered sandwiches and they were very tasty and reasonably priced. But the beers are very pricey and there is NEVER A HAPPY HOUR- EVER. Most beers are $6 for a pint but double IPAs and other higher ABV beers are $8 for an 8- ounce glass. I just cannot afford to visit this place often- particularly when there are so many other bars in Fort Collins with a good selection and $2-3 pints.

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.

A great place to check out when in Fort Collins. Its not really walkable from the downtown area, but its not that far that its out of the question. Most definitely bikeable.

Tap selection was quite large, and I really appreciated how clean everything looked. The food was good, but I am not sure if they source local or not. I'd say it was family friendly, at least during the day, with a long bar, as well as numerous tables that you could count on waiteresses coming by.

If you have not been here, check it out. It's a craft beer worthy place.
