Nice atmosphere - you can actually have a conversation with the person on the other side of the table (a rarity in most bars near campus). Clean. Not a lot of character to the place, other than the 100 taps on one wall.

As stated by someone earlier, they use appropriate glassware. Kinda nice to drink out of something other than a pint glass.

Service is timely and efficient, and also lacking in beer knowledge. A little disappointing, but not enough to keep me from frequenting.

Selection is pretty great. Lots of colorado brews along with some more novel beers from the coasts.

Food is delicious.

Overall, I'm pretty thankful for the Mayor. It's nice to have something offered on tap other than the locals.

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.

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.
