Regional craft brewery feel with a tap room that can host several dozen patrons. Windows allow drinkers to snoop on the brewing process and watching brewers prepare future batches of beer. It's well put together, with a semi-cozy feeling. Glassware varies per beer, as it should. Staff is helpful in making beer selections, knowing their product well. It makes for a strong selling point. Selection is solid, with a variety of styles available, particularly in the colder months (less IPAs).

Small brewery in industrial park on the north side of town, next door to Red Truck. Small straight bar opposite the entry seats about 10, with a few tables in the room and a small patio on the left side. A dozen beers on tap, I had the Golden Hour Orange IPA, it was very nice. Friendly bartender. Cool little place to enjoy a quiet beer.

Great local brewery. Solid offerings with incredible chocolate offerings in Friday. Their NE IPA Snow Juice is top shelf and the Crankenbrew pale is maybe the beat coffee beer I've had. Great people doing their very best and it shows. Try this place if you are in Ft. Collins.

this place doesnt have a captivating ambiance for me, it just feels like another taproom thrown up for people to drink at. sure its all clean and new looking, and sure there are some cool art pieces around, but it has nothing welcoming or unique about it, it just sort of is. fortunately, the rest of the experience here is quite a bit more original than the decor and the layout. for one, they had a heck of a beer list working, with literally something for everyone, from a handful of wild and barrel aged beers, to basic styles, and everything in between. they offer bombers to go, crowlers too, and had a nice selection overall. loved the coffee quad they did with verboten, and they had a wine barrel aged wheat beer i liked a lot too. service was great, super friendly, chatty to the right degree, and very generous with the samples obviously knows his stuff. they use a cool local coffee roasted for the coffee beers, which are among their best, and i liked that too. an easy place to pass a few hours cruising through the beer list, but maybe not the most memorable taproom experience, not that i need that to enjoy a place, sometimes its nice to just disappear at a bar and drink beers, and thats kind of what i got here. dug it, and their beers are way ahead of the curve in terms of quality.

Got a flight of four beers today: an IPA, a witbier, and schwarzbier, and a sour session IPA. The beers were all fantastic and unique, at reasonable prices. Definitely a brewery that I plan to keep and eye on and return to soon.

I think that for a new brewery they have a lot going for them. While there's not a huge selection what they do have is all top notch. I often get a flight (which they do have a "paddle" now) just to try them all again. I would suggest the Pawnee Porter or Inclination IPA

We came on s Friday night and there were about 25 people there. The building is warehouse style with metal walls, so it was very loud. No sound insulation at all. No outdoor seating that I saw. They had a food cart, which is nice, but standard for just about every brewery in the neighborhood. (Nb, Odell, fw, etc...) They don't have paddles for flights, so I had to make two trips from the bar to bring them to the table, and more importantly, risk mixing them up, although they're in order of srm (mostly), so not a huge deal. The beers themselves weren't bad. Not a lot of trendy styles, which is refreshing, and the ones they do are pretty flavorful. Not a place I'd go to enjoy the ambiance though.
