Visited October 5, 2013 with adneilson and womencantsail.

First impression upon entering: HIPSTER. Itís got all the makings of a good bar but I guess with that comes the tight jeans, thick rimmed glasses, and fedoras. They have a pretty impressive tap lineup, or at least a very large tap lineup. They offer flights which is nice. 4 pours for $8. The size of the pour changes based on the price and abv of the beer in the sample. They have printed menus that seem to be pretty up to date despite the amount of taps. They also have a more up to date menu on the wall being displayed by a projector. The service was very friendly and some of the beers were good. There was a pretty awful cider. We didnít eat so I canít comment on that. Prices on pints were decent. Would return.

"why doesnít Boulder have something like this?" "the television menus above the bar are great" "but it takes me a while to decide what to drink" "because Iíve had nearly everything" "iím going to try this small batch Odell beer" "theyíre out of it, guess not" "okay how about just a saison dupont" "or an orval, yeah a bottle of orval" "the orval is skunked, the fuck?" "itís like a mix of 22 year old oblivious kids in the front half and 30 year old know it alls in the back raving about the latest oxidized hop malt release from Oskar Blues" "why do they need 6 different amber ales on tap, and why offer the same 20 taps you can find at dozens of other places in town?" \m/

Visited with Aaron and Bobby. Fairly "hip" and perhaps more modern, upscale than most other Ft Collins beer spots. Dim lighting, sleek wooden decor, and fancied food items. Clientele seemed to match the ambiance. Tap selection was great. I think just about everything was from Colorado breweries, and a lot from the Ft. Collins area. Very friendly and quick service. They offer flights which is very nice. Seemed like a solid bar.

I think notalush hit his assessment right on the dot. You walk and you think youíre walking into a bank circa 1980. Unfinished rock walls with the big wood beams over head accompanied by shit that could have been bought either in Ikeaís 1980 or 2011 catalog: space age chairs, tables, etc. While dealing with that, you have to deal with a bunch of douche bags that think they know everything about beer. I was hoping to taste the Crooked Stave Petit Sour again since I had an unfortunate experience the first time around, but they had already sold out of their two kegs. All 100 beers offered were displayed by an overhead projector on the wall above the taps. Since I couldnít really see a TV all that well from my vantage point, I ended up reading the list front to back several hundred times looking for something unique. While they do have a few unique beers, I think their strength is bringing together tons of Colorado brews in one place (Asher, Crooked Stave, Pateros Creek, Equinox, etc). There were a few other taps for Firestone Walker, The Bruery, etc but those offerings werenít too "rare" but still notable. They have a considerable collection of glassware and I would estimate that an average beer will run you about $6-7 for a 300mL glass. The staff seemed somewhat informed on the beers, though I did hear some premium bullshit out of their mouths. As for the clientŤle that I alluded to before, it seemed compromised of hipsters and creepy guys that think theyíre being ironic by sporting a child rapist mustache. My favorite scene of the night was a sorority girl ordering a La Folie and telling her friends how she loved the sourness. They tasted it and said it was nasty. The girl that ordered the beer promptly asked if she could get a Sunshine instead as she didnít mean to get a La Folie. HA! My second favorite part of the experience was that they have started to expand their bottle list since lush visited. I am not shitting you, they had two bottled beers: FW Parabola and MIchelob Ultra! HAHAHAHA! If you can deal with the shitheads and the shitty atmosphere, itís a pretty cool place with lots of rotating taps to taste lots of different stuff. Iíll be back. Kind of pretentious staff.

Shitters: A-

I did not much care for the environment here - the decor was a mix of mod furniture and lighting fixtures, gleaming white and light gray everywhere - imagine Barbarella meets Kubrickís 2001 - very mod and pretentious - not comfortable at all - like an IKEA-furnished dorm room - when I walked in, I almost walked right back out - then I saw the tap list - 100 brews - an impressive selection of craft and imports (including a rare Mikkeller, Duvel Green and Saison Dupont) - beer menu was projected on a wall behind the bar (amplifying the scifi feel of the whole place) - beer prices were astronomical - sure, I had two double IPAs, but 7 bucks each? - no bottles when I was there, but they had a cooler at the far end of the bar, which leads me to believe they will have some soon - food menu seemed incongruous with the rest of the place - moderately priced sandwiches and burritos - food was decent, but I ordered an italian style sandwich and it was served with chips (wtf?) - servers were helpful, but simultaneously kind of distant and pretentious - very crowded and loud - loaded with what passes for hipsters in Fort Collins - the beer selection is great, but the environment will probably keep me from coming back.

Visited this place while in Fort Collins over the holidays. It is my first time visiting this beer bar located near CSU. Around 100 beers on tap, all listed on the wall. Really nice selection, probably the best in town. Iím not sure Iím a huge fan of the atmosphere, but otherwise a cool new place I wish was around when I went to CSU.

Post-lunch pint here, and this place had a different vibe (in terms of layout and decor) than some of the other places visited in FC. Chrome and modernist feel, but the sleekness didnít reflect the warm reception and attentive service. One of the better taplists in town, and they appear to keep things quite fresh and rotating frequently. Couldnít resist Deschutes Fresh Squeezed on tap, and it was delish. Another feather in this fine townís cap.

Located at the edge of Old Town, this modern restaurant/bar has 100 tap handles of average to great beers. Everyone should find something they like. Seating for at least 100 patrons at tables or the classy bar. Friendly barkeeps and a nice patio for outdoor seating.

Great food, really great selection of beers. They have a big screen where all of their draft beers are on display including those which were recently tapped.

Visited on 10/10/12. GABF Week. (Stop #7 of the day) A: The atmosphere of the place is a little more upscale and somewhat stuffy. The place is very nice but doesnít scream beer bar where you would go to watch a game. Q: A solid selection of CO beers and all were really decent, no dogs or BMC crap. S: A server was very friendly, answered beer questions with relative ease and prompt...handled our party of 8 very well. S: 100 craft beers from all over Colorado (except for Lost Abbey Mo Betta Bretta) selection I have seen a long time. F: Food was decent as no one had any complaints, higher quality than most beer bars you go to...even the pizzas were mades with very fresh ingredients. V: The beers and food were a little pricy as that everything tended to be a buck or two higher here than anywhere else we had been earlier that day (and even for the same beers in some cases). Overall, a nice finish to the day and a place to check out if you are looking for something a little more quiet and upscale....but not a place you hang out with the guys to watch a game place.
