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 it’s 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. It’s also next door to a bar/restaurant that sells almost exclusively Fort Collins beer.

Walked into the small building, pre-fab I think, and there was a couple of guys sitting at the small corner bar with another behind... and I mean small, like something you’d set up in your garage for you and your buddies... in fact that’s what the entire building looked like. I was able to sample all that they have available, and was pretty impressed. Worth a visit to see the operation and talk beer with them.

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...

First stop on our own private "Foam on the Range" tour of Ft. Collins, 4/12/06: Very friendly hottie manned the taps and despite her fit appearance, she a damn lot about their beers, other locals and beer in general. We were impressed. The beer was pretty damn good too. Very friendly little joint operating in lieu of the old HC Berger Brewery. Definitely a good stop.

Decent place to grab a few brews off of the beaten path in Ft Collins. It is easy enough to find if you are crawling, otherwise the signage is hidden and you will pass it the first time. Nice staff to tell you about all of their beers with some seasonal brewer select beers to sample as well as the standard offering. Typical tap room for a small micro.

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 don’t 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.

UPDATED (for new location): The new location is much more clean and no longer in an industrial park. The tasting room isn’t huge but I would guess it could house about 25 or so people. There are also clear glass windows so you can see into the brewery from the tasting room which is pretty cool. The new location is also on Lincoln Ave and within spitting distance of Odells. Average to good beers.

Small but pretty stop in between New Belgium and O’dells. Friendly wait staff, a bit of a sparse interior. Prices were fair and the beers were decent. No reason not to go here if you are in town.

We popped our heads in here briefly on our way out of town yesterday - the brewery and tasting room are in a big, corrugated aluminum building, but they do their best to make the tasting room welcoming - very small inside, but there was no one else there, so it felt cavernous despite this (new belgium and odell were both packed) - most of their regular offering on tap, plus one or two special offerings - reasonable growler fill prices (once you spend the 4 bucks for the glass, that is) - the girl working the bar was friendly - a nice, quiet alternative to the larger breweries in town.

First time at the new location. Nice tasting room, with seating inside at the bar, at tables or on the patio. View of the brewery from the tasting room. The bartender said they are working on adding a restaurant to the building. The beer is good, service was great. A good stop for sure if your in the area.
