Stopped in to get a layout of the place. More like a restaurant than a brewery. A lot of stuff available on draft, but not a whole lot of their own stuff. Very good selection though. Hipster-esque atmosphere. Not my cup of tea but a decent and quiet little place. Staff was very courteous.

Nice place. They have 40 taps, about 8-10 of their own beers. The rest of the selection is usually pretty interesting beer. Decent values, especially the lunch special. The food is bar tapas and is solid.

Stopped with Aaron and Bobby as we continued our Ft. Collins tour. Rather small bar and tap room for the brewery. Ten or so house beers on tap and 40 in total. Lots of cool stuff to try. All beers are available in samples for $2, which is awesome. Food looked like fairly typical brewpub fair, but enjoyable. Really friendly service and good prices on the beers. One of my favorite places in Ft. Collins.

Visited October 6, 2013.

After getting back from Cheyenne it was time to get down to business and try some beers. They have about 40 taps going at all times but only ("only") a dozen of them are house beers. The good news is that they have some good guest beers and you can get samples of anything on the menu. The samples are 3 oz and come in those snifter glasses. Iím really not a fan of that shape of glass but theyíre pretty. Prices were reasonable and the server was more than happy to bring us all the samples we wanted. Some of the beers were good too. Would return.

Located in a shopping center next to activate store, this place definitely gets top marks for ambiance. I especially loved the Last call gong which should be standard issue in every bar in the world. They had a dozen of theirs on tap and a couple of dozen guest taps which were thoughtfully chosen. I found their beers solid but not amazing, but the staff were nice and the prices more than reasonable.

Nice big bar, seating inside and the patio. 40 taps of house and guest beer. A big bottle last and a full bar. Friendly service. Good food.

Cool, totally hipster, new modern brewpub. Decor is very industrial, yet inviting, with low-lit fixtures and friendly service. Server was very helpful and seemed to know a decent amount about all of the beers on tap, which included 6-8 of their own beers and 12-14 guest taps. The place has wi-fi and you can try anything on tap for $2. The menu says they are 3 oz tasters, but they are more like 5-6, which seems like a damn good value to me. Beers were average, but seem to have some promise and they have an amazing lunch special Mon-Thurs. Nice bottle list with beers ranging from 40 oz of OE to Barrel-Aged offerings from Great Divide. They donít seem to take themselves to seriously and I dig that. Fun place and worth checking out on trip to Fort Collins.

Great service with a good rotating selection of great brews. The atmosphere is very comfortable and catering to the beer crowd, for sure.

ajnepple  (82) Clear Creek, Colorado | February 13, 2013| Updated December 15, 2013
They have 40 taps overall, about 10 of which are their own beers. A very fine selection of drafts and bottles as well. The ambiance is above average and the service has been great so far. Most draft beers are $4.50 but they ranged from about $3-7. The food is pretty good and fairly priced. Their current lunch special includes two sliders, a side and a Black Bottle beer for $7.99. You canít beat that.

Not the best of strip mall locations, nestled behind a Chuck E Cheese and a "Cheerleading Academy" - aside from this, though, the place is nice - medium sized space - decor is industrial and modern, but cozy enough - five of their own beers on tap on my visit, but also an impressive assortment of other brews, both import and one-offs from other Colorado breweries - quite a good selection, really - their beers were mostly Belgian styles (no complaints here) and showed quite a bit of promise - staff was friendly and fairly versed in the beer they were serving - you can get 3 ounce tasters of any beer on tap for 2 bucks, which can be a deal depending on the beer you choose, but is rather pricey for some of the standards - overall a great spot, and one that I will be certain to make a must-visit whenever I am in Fort Collins.
