I’ve stopped by the taproom a couple of times since it moved from the old place (where Funkwerks now is). I’ve 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 haven’t been to the restaurant, so I can’t 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).

Small taproom infront of the brewery. Cozy place to hang out, good service. About 15 taps, beers are pretty good, samplers are available at fair prices. Absolutely worth going to if you are in the area.

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.

Ft. Collins Brewery was my third stop on the wonderful whirlwind of Ft. Collins’ breweries. Tucked somewhere below O’Dell and New Belgium in my mental hierarchy of beloved brewers, I saw FCB as a sort of respite from the more exciting breweries. Indeed, everything about the visit felt “smaller” and “humbler” than either New Belgium or O’Dell, but it was a pleasant half hour, and not without its surprises. The taproom is quite small, with a nice porch where a bear sized dog was rolling about with a mauled dog toy, and very friendly staff. We ordered the sampler with there rarer beers and found them pleasing, but comparatively disappointing. I offer one exception – the wheat wine was perhaps the most exciting beer of the day, which says something when you’ve trialed 24 beers in a single day. Everybody was friendly, the shwag was tasteful, and a large window lets you get a good gander at the guts of the brewery, even if you didn’t show up at the right time for a tour. Compared to New Belgium or O’Dell, FCB doesn’t quite have a feel or a character to it. It’s sort of there and making good beer. While the drinks are good I can’t complain, but there is a certain spice that New Belgium’s environmental stewardship and O’Dell’s dedication to experimentation adds to their respective brews which FCB lacks.

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.

The new place is beautiful! Fort Collins is lucky to have so many great breweries and this place is ready to be number one in a tough market. Love it.

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.

Very small tasting room, but they are moving soon. Always cool people pouring the beers that know a lot about them and care about the quality. Cheap tasting tray of all the beers is available.
