Visited during the GABF with 100 northern Colorado beers on tap. That is just insane, out bartender she was awesome. Good food, great beer and a very knowledgeable staff.

Service was excellent! Free pizza on Fri afternoons. Knowledgable servers, water brought and refilled without asking. 100 Northern CO brews on tap today! Prices are as high as you would expect for really good beer. I would have liked more beer geek info on the beer list.

Now that theyíve been open a year, itís time for a re-review. I no longer patronize the mayor. Over the last year or so, the quality of service has taken a dive. Last few trips in, it took nearly 20 minutes to get beer to the table. Considered ordering my next beer as the first was delivered. Servers make educated choices, but not great ones. Sometimes itís downright impossible to flag a server down. Selection is still mostly good. Some breweries have gone missing, such as Russian River (thereís a story behind it.) Limited releases at the mayor are becoming more and more scarce. Crowd is less and less beer people, and more the frat pack crowd. Room is still terribly noisy, and any day of the week after work will require yelling to communicate. Still very much a sterile clean room, for better or worse. They do a good job keeping beer fresh and cool. Pricing is all over the place, but never truly unreasonable. No complaints in this department. The owner I simply canít deal with. Between getting into playboy, and the aforementioned distribution issues, it seems that he has enough money to throw around that he wonít miss me. I still wish him the best. A lot of people still like this place.

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!

"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/

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.

I can understand that the ambiance of this place is hit or miss. Itís not the warmest decor Iíve ever seen, the floor-plan is not broken up, and it can get loud when the place is full--which they have said theyíre working on--but at least itís unique. It doesnít feel like youíre sitting in an American cookie-cutter bar like Old-Cís or any number of chain-operated establishments. The service, I must admit, is somewhat inconsistent. Sometimes itís great, sometimes slow. They do know their beer though, for having an ever-changing 100 beer tap line. As for the beer, I love it. If youíre a linear drinker and are looking for the same thing every night, you might look elsewhere, but for me, to think the line will look considerably different in a few weeks is incredible. What is offered is a beautiful assortment of locals and imports. Taps include stuff from Equinox to Ommegang, Firestone Walker and Jolly Pumpkin to Mikkeller and Moortgat. The food is a little inconsistent with the quality and selection of beer that is offered but itís delicious bar food none-the-less. As for value, these beers are difficult to get in many liquor stores, let alone on tap. Not to mention theyíre better than the prices Iíve seen at Cafe Vino or Choice City. If you can deliver me a Duvel Single on tap I would fully expect to pay more for it than a Fat Tire, especially considering a four pack is $16 in a liquor store. Overall, the staff is educated and nice, the food is good, the beer is great and itís a new local favorite for me.

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.
