I love this bar, especially now that they have opened up the second bar with more taps. Ambiance feels like being in a ski lodge. The staff is usually very nice and also very knowledgeable about what they have on tap; I usually get at least one free taster when I go. They have a decent selection of top of the line beers on tap (about ten-twelve) including DFG, Goose Island, and Great Divide while I was there. They also have a fantastic selection of bottles, including some beers that I have not seen at any other liquor store in town. It is a bit pricey, but for getting rare, out of state beer on tap, its worth it.

Walked down the street from Coopersmiths to this place. Main entrance leads to a small bar and seating area. Dark, nice wood decor, some chill lounge chairs and couches offered. There are only about ten taps, mostly local stuff. Thereís a second area in the back with a lot more room, but we didnít really hang out there. The main area seemed like a cool place to hang out and have a couple beers. Be aware that itís cash only, though they do have an ATM.

Visited October 4, 2013 with adnielsen and womencantsail.

Interesting feel to this place. It looks like a hipster hangout (and it kind of is) but it was pretty laid back. We sat on the couch in the corner and tried some beers. There is a whole other room on the other side of the building where the bathroom is that we didnít explore. They decided for whatever reason to serve adnielsen an eisbock in a pint glass. My Odell Fernet aged porter tasted like peppermint patty. The Black Bottle Amarillo Hipster was pretty good. Service was alright. Prices were decent.

I only stopped here once before I moved, unfortunately. Cool back-alley bar in Old Town. Not too many taps, but a nice selection. A nice bottle list, as well. They had Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge on tap when I was there. Good service and decent value.

Great little pub in an alley. Awesome atmosphere, but a little small and can get crowded. Interesting beers on tap with a lot of bottles. They also do meet the brewers nights. They are cash only.

Stopped in here while visiting Fort Collins over the holidays. Tap list is relatively small (around 10 taps) but cool beers for those that they carry. Around 30 bottles available. Doesnít havenít the biggest selection in town, but a cool little place located in an alley off of Old Town.

Love this place. If you can find it, itís a great, low-key joint with a pretty decent crowd, excellent service, and frequently rotating taps, which makes up for the fact theyíve only got 9 of them. Cash only is inconvenient, but the ATM is cheap, so Iím okay with it- I usually tip the bartenders far more than Iím losing by withdrawing. Beers that come through this place are second to none- Duvel, Tool, Unibroue, etc, along with the locals, and occasionally some rare wonderfulness, like New Belgiumís love. Hard to complain. It gets a little busy at times, and sometimes they have live music (which itís not big enough for) but itís awesome enough to make up for its few shortfalls.

Small very cosy bar, red brick walls, some semi obscure paintings and stuff as decorations. Apart from the bar and a few tables, the some soft deep chairs and sofas to shill in. 10 rotating taps with quality brew, Old Rasputin, Ommegang Seduction among others. Nice bottle list aswell Stone epic 11.11.11 and Eclipse Elijah Craig 18yr among others, nice service, good prices, Cash only. Would love to go back.

Bad ass little bar tucked down an alley in Old Town Fort Collins. When I dropped by, they had some really cool, limited local brews on tap as well as a nice bottle list. Somewhat cramped but there is a nice patio outside to chill. If youíre just visiting, Iíd probably hit the Mayor, Choice City, and Cafe Vino first, but this place is a pretty cool place to hang out and get quality beers.

Update: maybe my favorite place to drink in town. Beer selection can really be hit or miss but itís really a cozy joint.
