Nice big tap list. Usually have some interesting rareties and are a good complement to Choice City across the street. The food is a simple bar menu but has interesting selections and is tasty. They have music sometime and pinball and games in the basement.

A late night visit with Aaron and Bobby. A small, but decent crowd at the bar. Tons of taps and a fair amount of interesting stuff, with a few of the usual suspects from around town (Odell, etc.). Kind of a welcoming, homey feel to the place. Friendly service reinforces that. A small patio area available, too. Good service, good beers, solid place.

Visited October 4, 2013 with adneilson and womencantsail.

We walked in late (after midnight) and the place was only half full. The tap list is really pretty good so itís a shame that these guys arenít getting more business. They donít do tasters or flights so we ordered full glasses of everything we wanted to try. Luckily between the three of us that was only four beers. Sadly, one of those beers was the 7 Day Vert Gueuze.... The Sierra Nevada Beer Camp IFA was quite good and they had a few other interesting beers like the Goose Island Matilda Lambicus. The service was friendly, the prices were high, and overall it was a fun place to hang out.

A nice, fairly new taproom in Fort Collins. Cool place with lots of room and a small patio with a great downtown location. Good service and pretty good food with fair prices. The beer selection is excellent. Go early on Thursday night for the Blues Jam, which seriously kicks ass.

I find a new beer or hard to find ones every time I come in. Selection is off-the-hook and the service is top notch! Probably the most under-rated food in town.Well Done!!!

This is a beer geek bar, period. The unique and hard to find beers have found their way onto these taps. The prices are steep, but youíll pay a premium to imbibe on some of these exotic lovelies. The tap-room and patio are both great places to enjoy your brew with friends (or solo if youíre writing reviews)!

Visited during GABF week. Nice pub atmosphere with lots of wood. Good selection, knowledgeable staff. Has also sitting places outside and pinball machine is the basement. Good place.

Cool beer bar in Old Town Fort Collins. I really like the interior because it feels "homey" to me for some reason. The tap list is pretty good with a lot of quantity and quality and the bottle list is good too. The service was great and out waitress was very attentitive. The food was mediocre, so I would suggest stopping here for beers and not the dinner. Arcade games and pinball in the basement and a nice little patio. Wouldnít be my first stop in Fort Collins, but worth checking out just to see what is on tap.

I thought for a Sunday afternoon when the place was dead because everyone in the state was at a bar watching the Broncos game, it was still a pretty good hang. They have a big tap list full of local and state wide craft. I only had the green chili soup but it was very flavorful and packing lots of heat. the place also has a patio and a basement with old school video games like Tron. The bartender was very personable and seemed to know a lot about the beer. I can believe this is one of the top spots in the state.

I want to like this place. Actually, I do like this place, but Iím not in love with it. I like the dark, quiet vibe, but it needs more beer signage and neon to make it feel more like a beer bar. Aside from that, tap selection is great, a nice, broad spectrum with a well-layed out menu. Beer is still on the pricey end of things, although since they opened, beer prices have only improved. Pull back pricing .50/pint to 1/pint depending on the beer, and I think theyíd see better business. Food ranges from ok to great, and is extremely reasonable in price. Some servers in this place are awesome, (mostly the bartenders) but the wait staff usually leaves a lot to be desired. The whole credit card up front thing is weird too, at least when Iím there, (read: not late at night) since oftentimes Iím the only person in there. Overall, itís a great place, Iíll keep drinking here, but it certainly wouldnít hurt them to take another look at some of their policies and servers.
