While out in Fort Collins visiting my future sister in law, we hit Coopersmith's downtown since New Belgium was closed for the weekend.

We put in our names for the 45 minute wait and went across the patio to the billiards room where we had a pint or two while we were waiting for our light-up buzzer thingy to go off. The atmosphere in the pool room is like a game room at a ski lodge. A nice big pine bar is over to the right, with darts, pool, and a few tables down a step or two to the left.

When our buzzer thing went off, we were seated in a big booth by the windows that look out onto the bustling sidewalk. The food is outstanding, and very reasonably priced for what you get. The beer is also quite reasonable, and is available in tasting "bullets" that are maybe five ounces, in addition to wussy 10 oz, or real 16 oz pint glasses. The best part is that you can order a sampler with 4 or 6 of those bullets full of any combination of their brews (excluding the cask conditioned special edition stuff).

The service was great, and the place was well-lit and spacious despite the huge Saturday night crowd. They brew a really nice variety of ales and lagers, and their chili beer is the only chili brew that I've ever had that isn't nasty. I hate hot stuff, and even though I found that brew a bit warm for my tastes, I actually really liked it!

I would go back here in a heartbeat. The food is outstanding (I had the guacamole turkey burger, and my fiance had the calzone....which I gladly finished for her), the brew is reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is vibrant without being loud or crazy. A definite must for any beer advocate visiting Fort Collins.
