Visited October 5, 2013 with adneilson and womencantsail.
This is a pretty large setup. I guess it makes sense since they bottle all their beers. The beers are not very good unfortunately so itís confusing that they would expand and still be busy. The tasting room filled up pretty quickly at noon on a Saturday. The people were happy to drink all the house beers they could get their hands on. Some of the beers were alright like the regular doppelbock but some were undrinkable, like the sour doppelbock. The service was friendly and he knew a little bit about the beer but he mostly just told us that everything is good. The building is very nice and could be a great place to hang out if the beer got better. Itís also next door to a bar/restaurant that sells almost exclusively Fort Collins beer.

Third stop of the Ft. Collins brewery tour extravaganza. Small tasting room with a horseshoe shaped bar. Patio seating available outside and a handful of tables around the tasting room. A TV or two with a football game on. There were 15 beers on tap and almost all of them were just terrible. The service was at least friendly. Fair prices, but considering how bad the beers were...

This place is almost never busy, especially for a small taproom. The ambiance is pretty typical with a helpful and friendly staff. Prices are fairly typical. Unfortunately, their beer just isnít that great. A few exceptions, of course. I usually stop here because itís in between Funkwerks and Odell. Check out their restaurant next door, Gravity 1020.

The tasting room is small and quaint but well laid out with a very comfortable patio out front. Bartender was really nice and helpful. My whole reason for my visit was to get my hands on the first two installments in their Out of the Ashes series and beyond that, I was pretty excited about the limited release tap list. They had seven limited beers featuring two smoked beers, a sour beer, a "double pale" and a few other things. Much of Fort Collins beer I donít really care for with the exception of the smoked stuff which they seem to do quite well. I was very happy with the value and quality of the beers that I got on my visit. They have a restaurant adjacent to the taproom, but I did not venture over there.

Modern, updated space with a decent sized patio out front and connected restaurant. Somewhat small place, but very clean and inviting. The staff was friendly and attentive. Beers are mediocre to below average, but nothing that is really off-putting. Prices are reasonable and usually anywhere from 8-12 different taps at any given time. Worth checking out, especially if you are at Odells because it is right down the street.

Stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon. Modern looking ambience, ok beers and pretty good food (at the restaurant next door called Gravity 1020). Had a flight of four beers but I donít remember the price. They have a nice patio if thatís your thing.

FCB make a few unique beers that most of the other breweries donít, which is great because it always keeps me coming back to see whatís new. They already have an impressive and delicious selection of brews, but building on that earns my respect and devoted patronage. The taproom is a bit small, but itís rarely crowed. Itís definitely a good place to enjoy an afternoon beer as you watch the sun go down.

This place spent millions and built this new beautiful building but it hasnít fixed their beer! FCB brews are still the worst in the area. This is proof That non beer drinkers shouldnít make beer!
They need to make all these chocolate brews to cover the nasty flavor of their beers. We know the west coast loves their beer- thatís only due to east coast folks not realizing FCB isnít part of AB.

Iíve stopped by the taproom a couple of times since it moved from the old place (where Funkwerks now is). Iíve never been a huge fan of the beers at Fort Collins Brewery, especially in comparison to New Belgium and Odell (and now Funkwerks). But the taproom is pretty nice. They usually have their normal line-up of beers and a couple additional ones in the sampler tray. I havenít been to the restaurant, so I canít comment on the food. Overall, I would say its worth a stop in Fort Collins (but I would hit New Belgium, Odell, and Funkwerks first).
