i have been meaning to check these guys out for awhile. i think they have a less stellar reputation than they should have, mostly because the beer that makes it to bottles i dont think is a representation of their best work. the specialty kegs and certainly some of the taproom exclusives are just great, so it was awesome to finally make it in. in a huge facility, recently renovated from what i understand. its brightly colored, its clean, its new feeling, its large for sure, patio, long bar, dining area, private event space, comfortable. the bartender was a bit odd, seemingly overwhelmed by a quiet bar, flustered, but friendly. they had a ton of beers on, several of which i had never seen or heard of before, great selection. i think the recent rebranding was a smart move for them. the beer was great, i liked the scarlett brett a lot, and the mexican chocolate cake stout was solid as well. it looks like they are doing a little more inventive stuff now than they have in the past and that will serve them well in the very savvy fort collins beer market. i had a great time here, and the food i had was killer too. i think its a matter of time before these guys are back on the map with the beer nerds. worth revisiting if its been awhile for you...

I didnt attend the restaurant, I instead went to the tap room to await the tour, there was a small bar with several bar tenders pouring beers, i strongly reccomend their Hoptastic the best beer i have had from them yet. The staff was knowledgable, when I was asking questions throughout the tour they were answered when i asked what kind of hops were in the Hoptastic they were able to answer me. Until i went to the brewary itself i had never been a huge fan, but now i cant wait to go back.

Cool brewery and taproom with some really nice beers. If it weren't in Fort Collins, it would probably seem more special. I like their beers much better than New Belgium, but it's tough to compete with Odell.

This is a very large facility. Big open areas with long tables. I like their system for samplers. I enjoyed trying quite a few beers that they do not bottle. I think they may be better than most of their bottled beers. The food was pretty tasty, too.
