Upscale looking tap house. Service was incredible, knowledgeable and friendly. Many unique local offerings and some other hard to find beers. Prices were about what I would expect. Visitors to Fort Collins must come here. It’s your chance to drink CO beers that you may not get to if you are out brewery hopping.
Friday night buck wild session with Adnielsen. Nice, kind of high-end feel. Sat at the bar and had plenty of room. The digital draft board is a nice touch. Huge, varied selection. Flights available of any combination. Prices are fair and staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Great place I’d love to visit again.
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 didn’t 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. Couldn’t resist Deschutes Fresh Squeezed on tap, and it was delish. Another feather in this fine town’s 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.
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 doesn’t 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)...best 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.
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.

Visited October 5, 2013 with adneilson and womencantsail.
First impression upon entering: HIPSTER. It’s 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 didn’t eat so I can’t comment on that. Prices on pints were decent. Would return.
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. It’s a limited menu provided by a local cafe, so it’s mostly sandwiches and breakfast foods. It’s tasty and reasonable portions (not monstrous, which I like).
Update: I don’t go here any more due to they way they have treated some friends in the business. I’ve heard the food has changed too, so I changed that to NA. They do have a lot of beers with some interesting ones though.
