This bar has 74 taps. We were lucky to visit on a Saturday afternoon when there was hardly anyone there, so got lots of attention from the knowledgeable bartender. Tried many wonderful beers from Colorado. Did not eat here, just imbibed.

This is definitely my favorite bar ever.

V- Great home-like vibe with lots of wood and overall cozy feel.

Q- These guys literally have the best selection of beer in Fort Collins (and probably anywhere really). They always keep sure things on like Melvin Hubert and Zwei Pilsner, but also have a never-ending stream of rare, one-off, and vintage beers that you don't see at other beer bars. They seem to get all the goodies in all the styles too- hoppy, malty, crisp/light, sour/funky, etc. With 74 taps, they have something for everyone.... don't get me started on their insane bottle list!

Service- great... really nice, knowledgeable folks in every part of the operation

Selection- I kind of went through this with the 'Quality' section. 74 taps, endless bottles. Tons of variety in every aspect of beer (including some ciders/meads)

F- Big fan of the food here... definitely not a fine dining experience, but this is a bar after all. Can't get enough of the chicken fingers- hand battered and not greasy at all. Lots of other great comfort food-type options here as well as salads, burgers, and delicious appetizers.

I'm a fan.

I loved this place. It was my first place I visited in Ft. Collins and I truly enjoyed it. Great beer, cool staff, good food.

If I ever get back to Ft Collins it will be my first place to visit.

I've only been to Tap an Handle a few times. The last time I was there was the Odell tap takeover. Great idea. 56 beers from Odells, so the selection was fantastic. Service was good, much better than in previous visits. I love the bar. Very unique and a great look. The overall feel of the place is average. It kinda gives a college bar vibe. But, I have to admit, that they always have a good selection of beers. Haven't connected with the bartenders as I have with the other places in town. Good place I would recommend a try to decide for yourself.

Food could use a little improvement. Everything is a bit greasy and not well seasoned. The beer selection is pretty good but the amount of different breweries is often lacking. If your heading this way don't be in a hurry! The service is laid back and slow. If you're looking for a place to find some good beers and chill out for a bit, this is the spot for you.

Tap and Handle is the most enjoyable place in Fort Collins for my money. It's less pretentious than the Mayor of Old Town while still having an excellent rotating selection of beers. The food is very good without being either too gourmet or predictable. I just love how it feels like a regular old local hang that just happens to have world class beer selections. Plus, happy hour is every day and all day on Sunday!
