The atmosphere here is amazing: tons of bike memorablia and great garage doors to College Ave. patio. Service is good, know their beer. About 10 taps. Value is average for Fort Collins to slightly high maybe. Overall, good rarer locals brews, fair prices, great atmosphere

Nice location just north of Old Town. Cool building and decor, very bike friendly. Nicely selected beers on tap, I had the Maharaja from Avery. Prices were fair and the bartender was friendly.

Visited with Aaron and Bobby on our first night in Fort Collins. Kind of a hipster coffee shop hangout vibe to it. About ten beers on tap, but all were pretty interesting beers. A couple tequila barrel beers, strangely. Service was quick and friendly. They do offer flights of four, which is helpful. Lots of seating available and had a live band playing on a Friday night.

Visited October 4, 2013 with womencantsail and adnielsen.

They have about a dozen taps and they offer flights which helps if youíre from out of town. Pretty much all of the samples we got were from Crazy Mountain. For whatever reason they wouldnít do tasters of the tequila barrel witbier so I ordered a glass of it. A 10oz glass cost me $9... I guess I should have looked at the price ahead of time. The servers were nice and were curious about our thoughts on the witbier. A quick 4 new beers as we were entertained by the Michael James Jam Band.

Nice mix of beer, coffee and bikes. They have a nice selection of taps...some beers are not available elsewhere. A big focus on local FoCo beers.

Crankenstein is quintessentially FoCo! Bikes and Beer - what else do you need? Coffee? Yup - and itís damn good too! The decor is masterfully dressed with local artwork and reclaimed wood planks for a very natural and earth friendly vibe. This is more of a hipster brew shop, but thatís to be considered in the most flattering way.

First off, they have amazing coffee, so theyre getting bonus points on that even though this is RateBeer. Kinda swanky grad-school vibe with vintage chairs at the bar, spacious interior with wood and carpeting...seemed like a prep school commons with a bar. And the beers on offer were pretty keen, with some local Ft Collins rarities I hadnít seen anywhere else before or since. And they had ST. Bernardus on tap?!

Rather spacious grad student and hipster hangout on the north end of old town - bottle and tap selection of mostly pedestrian locals, with a few regional offerings - not nearly on par with mayor or tap and handle - staff seemed decent, but less than thrilled to serve an obvious out of towner - thrift store decor - okay - probably great if you live in town.

Wow! A friend of a friend dragged me to this new place in downtown Foco and Iím so glad that I didnít fight her too much. Interesting atmosphere- bike shop in back, vintage chairs, concrete floor. Thereís only about ten beers on tap but they had several beers that I hadnít seen around Fort Collins at all. Iíll definitely be back to get a beer or a coffee (itís a coffee shop in addition to be a beer bar and bike repair shop). Awesome!
