Solid tap selection, probably the best in Fort Collins- several Avery beers, Chimay, and specialty beers from NB and Odells. Also quite a few bottles from Avery, NB, Odells, and belgians. The meats and cheeses are great, I buy from them almost every week. The stuff is USDA choice and I believe much of it is organically farmed. Still need to try some of the prepared food they offer. Great little place!
Far an away the best food I had while visiting the area for this yearís GABF! The beer selection is amazing...drinking Blind Pig and Pliny at an outside table on a very hot afternoon...but itís the food that will blow you away. They make an amazing selection of sausages...not to mention incredible sandwiches and a chees shop. All the food here is original...top quality...and mouth watering (and sizeable). To have all of that "and" great beer too seems almost a crime. Make this a must visit when nearby...and also go out of your way for it!
This is a deli with an insane tap list. All service is at the counter. I just happened to be in town and went here because thatís where everyone else in the party wanted to go. Glad I stopped here, needless to say. The inside is rustic and inviting. I wish I hadnít just eaten because they all the meats in the case looked excellent. The sandwich menu has several tantalizing options. To say the beer list is top notch is an understatement. This has to be the best beer lineup in Fort Collins. Theyíve got everything from rare, to imports, to regional and itís all stuff that we want to drink. They had Pliny and Blind Pig on during my visit which shows their dedication to getting the geeky stuff. I opted to skip over those two as plenty superior offerings were available. I was here during happy hour and the prices are just so low itís nearly criminal.
Great deli with a great and varied beer selection. Bonus points for serving us a beer at 10 am. This was the first place we did in Ft. Collins and it set the tone for the whole day. You must visit this place if youíre ever in the area.
I ate here with my family on a June evening. It isnít the most obvious place to find, tucked on the side of a building. Inside it is half-warehouse, half-upscale, with a deli counter and bar balancing the table seating. The beer is really where itís at: the selection here is diverse and includes a number of special beers that are rare to find on tap, though there are also some more mainstream beers, too. Lots of local beers and ciders. The food is solid, though I think we would have been happier if weíd sprung for the deli counter steaks. Our meals included sandwiches (my son loved his burger with fried egg on it) and entrees, which ranged from good-but-underwhelming to excellent. Not cheap, though not bad value either. The patio space isnít very big, though it was there (not big enough for large tables of people, only small parties).
This is essentially a butcher shop and deli with 40 taps. Easy street parking. The bar is small, maybe four stools, but there are a bunch of tables as well. Breakfast was very tasty, and of course features their fresh meats. Beer selection was large and varied. Small handful of bottles in a single cooler. Very friendly service, made me feel very welcomed. A worthwhile stop.
Great place whose basic conception of the beer/food interface is pretty unquestionable. MEAT. Nice space, lively and a bit crowded but well arranged and warm. Admirable service on a very busy evening, attentive and helpful throughout. Tap list was superb, with loads of locals and surprising one-offs. And the food was terrific, specifically the buffalo Reuben.
Located at the Armstrong Hotel, this restaurant /bar serves a nice range of local and other beers that rate from good to outstanding. There is also a great menu of meat dishes. Friendly and helpful barkeeps.
A large deli with lots of seating areas. Service was self serve, but the counter person knew about beer. Selection was pretty awesome for a deli. Food was great, I really enjoyed it. Prices were about right and I would go again.
Great ambiance, very local feeling. Service was great. The beer selection is something amazing, only the best of the best on tap, including rare and hard to find beers. Food was absolutely fantastic. Most of the beers are very reasonably priced for what you are getting on tap, food is pretty good price for the quality too. Overall, I though it was amazing. I need to get in there more to try some of their specialties.
