Great Brewery. The staff is very knowledgeable and know their beer. Great beer selection, they have an American line and a German line. One of my favorite breweries!

Really neat beer drinking spot. Located adjacent to a bike shop in a little retail outcropping building a parking lot, Zwei is small, with large beer hall benches, and a short bar. A short wall holds a chalk board with the tap list. Beyond that wall is the brew equipment. A handful of garage doors open up the dark space to the outdoors offering fresh air. The staff was friendly on both visits, offering up suggestions for recommended beer, and even chatting about beer styles. Selection was limited to German beers, but spanned the full variety of German styles.

V-Zwei looks and feels like a typical suburban brewery with a strip-mall-type location just south of Ft. Collins. There is a nice little patio sitting on the parking lot out front, and a decent sized space inside with wood hi-top tables and small bar. The brewing equipment, including some cool copper kettles, peeks out from behind the bar. The crowd was mostly locals when I visited on a Tuesday during happy hour. It started out pretty empty, but the tables filled a little before I left. Nothing special, but friendly enough.

Q-While the vibe was fine, the beers I tried were pretty great. I had pours of the pils, the Vienna lager, and tastes of dunkelweizen and the Munich dunkel. I brought home a crowler of the dunkel. The dunkelweizen was my least favorite, but even that beer rated above average.

Ser-The two bartenders clearly knew about the beers they were pouring and the pours were done properly with the correct amount of head in appropriate glassware. I love when I can get a pils in a stang glass! That being said, one of the servers was a little surly; not mean, just short tempered or grumpy. Oh well.

Sel-Zwei had 14 beers on when I visited. Half the lineup was dedicated to German styles and they had a good spread of light, dark, wheat, ale, and lager offerings. The other half was IPA heavy with a Belgian or two. Nice to see variety and all were brewed in-house; no guest taps.

O-These guys make great German beer. I will definitely be back when I can get back up to FoCo.

Great brewery with German style beers. Their beer reminds me of when I lived in Germany. Great place to hang out with friends over a few beers.

A wonderful little brewery that offers some of the best German lagers I've had, as well as some American and Belgian styles. The staff were friendly, the bar was full of cheerful regulars, and the beer was fantastic. The Dunkel and Rauchbier were highlights.

This establishment is now known as Zwei Brewing, to eliminate the legal/trademark confusion with Two Brothers ("zwei bruder" auf Deutsch). Great little place on the south side of Ft. Collins. Their specialty is German style beers, but they have a good number of "indigenous" recipes for our enjoyment as well.

If you like German beers this is the place to go. I tried their Helles, Hefeweizen, Fest and Dunkel Hefweizen ($2 per taste) and thought I was back in Germany. They have a beer garden which was a nice place to hang out on a warm September evening and the food is from a food truck which I didn't try but my table mates seemed to think was okay. I really liked the Helles so decided to get a second offering.

Right off the main thoroughfare in Fort Collins- authentic German style lagers at the head of the beir list. Currently 5 lagers on tap. Accompanying aforementioned are 2 German weissbiers and a nice selection of American styles to round out the selection to please any crowd. Definitely a must visit for the 'Lager Seeker'!
