"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?"

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.

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.

Visited during the GABF, had Tap Takeover of Colorado breweries. 100 beers on tap, whatís more to say... Food was bad (pizza & soup) really not tasty. Still a must visit - Go for the beers.

trendy craft beer focused bar in Fort Collins near CSU just below Old Town. lots of great craft on tap with a huge multi screen above the bar displaying the current offerings. seems to be a hipster type place. the bar staff seems to know there beer. Iíll be going back next time Iím in town simply because there arenít too many other spots in town bar wise with as many choices.

This place is awesome, I only wish it had opened sooner. Too bad I only got to enjoy it for a little while. The selection is awesome and is constantly updated by a giant screen above the bar. The glassware here is unreal, with a different piece for every style. If you are in Fort Collins, this place is a MUST!

The Mayor has a big hipster bar feel. 100 taps are nice and they get some cool beers rotating through. I think a place like Choice City gets better beers at much better prices though with only 38 or so taps. It feels like there is lots to try, but no real beer knowledge there.
The food is good. Itís a limited menu provided by a local cafe, so itís mostly sandwiches and breakfast foods. Itís tasty and reasonable portions (not monstrous, which I like).
Update: I donít go here any more due to they way they have treated some friends in the business. Iíve heard the food has changed too, so I changed that to NA. They do have a lot of beers with some interesting ones though.

Iíd come here more if I didnít feel like I was drinking on the set of Kardashian reality TV show. The place is uber-modern and has a TON of beers to choose from. The staff know a thing or two about beer, which helps with deciding. It can get expensive to really get your buzz on, but if you belong on that set with the Kardashians, then youíve found a great place to drink!
