It had been many years since I last set foot in this place. I'm guessing 15. The biggest difference is the Pool Side that's next door, but not attached to the Pub. Being there for food, I didn't hit the Pool tables, but the Pool Side's big glass windows gave me a good look at its large and open space.

The Pub Side hasn't changed much from what I remembered. You enter in the middle. To the right are restaurant style booths and tables, to the left is the bar area, which has a very long wooden bar and an array of regular and high tables with freestanding wood chairs. The brewery is behind large windows across from the bar. The decor is what I'd call "classic brewpub." Wood is everywhere and the walls are exposed brick. It's a look that's been done to death at this point, but I give Coopersmith's a pass because it's been around so long.

The night I was there, 14 of Coopersmith's beers were on tap. I had the Porter, Weizenbock and Chili Beer. The bock was the one I liked the best. I give big points for having so many of their beers available at once.

Food is standard pub fare. I had the Bangers and Mash, which was tasty, if a bit small on the portion size. Prices seemed about on par with most CO brewpubs.

Service was decent. I was there late on a Tuesday, so the waitstaff was minimal. Despite that, my waiter was efficient and happy to answer questions about the beers.

Overall, I'm glad I finally made it back here. Coopersmith's will definitely be a place I'll visit next time I'm in Ft Collins.

The interior is cozy with hard wood floors and dark walls. Brew equipment is viewable on the walk in. Beer on tap is all in-house beers spanning a wide array of styles. The beer itself is fair to great depending on the beer itself. The staff is friendly and helpful in recommending beers. The food is the highlight here though, with the benefit of the beer being that it's made in house.

Vibe - hoping place for lunch on a Saturday. Small patio, indoor bar, plenty of seating. A mix of locals, visitors and CSU college students. They also have a bar and pool hall in a separate building next door!
Quality - had the English style ipa, which was good, not great. I’ll get to the food later, but that definitely increases the overall quality of the joint!
Service - it was fairly busy, but we never felt that the service was lacking. Staff was helpful and friendly!
Selection- offerings to please everyone, they even had home brewed ginger ale and root beer, which my kids got a kick out of!
Food - some creative offerings without being over the top and too cute for their own good. I had a breaded/fried butterfly pork tenderloin with beer sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, and it was amazing!
Overall - fun, energetic place with good food and decent beer!

This was the first brewery I ever visited in FC. It is solid. The beers are ok, and the foods are good. I'm not sure if they source anything locally though. Service has always been solid. It is family friendly. I recommend checking out.

Old school brewery in downtown FC. Checked it out primarily because they had food.

Vibe is large, college town brewpub vibe. Busy, but not overly so on a Saturday night.

Quality of beers was ok, felt like "chain quality", nothing bad, but kind of boring. I did have an IPA with a "hop tea bag" which was certainly unique, but still didn't wow me. They did have a nice selection of beers on tap though.

Service was pedestrian and chain like. Nothing bad, but nothing memorable or great.

Food was just like the service, decent, but forgettable.

Overall? Meh... I didn't dislike this place, but I didn't particularly like it either.
