Grimm Brothers has a fairly large space in two units in a business park. It’s pretty basic inside with some art on the walls and a couple comfy couches among the long tables. I don’t recall much bar seating at all. Service was friendly and efficient. They have maintained their focus on German style beer with a lot of lagers. I’ve only had a few things from these guys, but I’ve always liked what I’ve had. They’re very drinkable and clean beers.
I thought they did a nice job with all of the (mostly German) styles they made. None of the beers I had were anything I would categorize as amazing, but they were all well made. Nice set-up with a lot of long tables and a larger bar area (more for ordering / standing than seating), plus a second room with some other tables and seating. No food here, but they have menus for local delivery. This was the only place we stopped in Loveland. For a weekday afternoon it had a decent crowd, but there was plenty of seating. Overall, its a pretty good spot, but not a can’t miss.
Decent enough place in a corporate park. Visited during the GABF...and although the place was pretty much empty...the staff was very nice and accommodating. The beers though were not that special to me and my friend...maybe because we had been visiting so many breweries over the previous couple of days...but the Grimm beers just didn’t seem to stand out...or measure up to the taste and quality we experienced elsewhere. Please be clear...this is definitely "not" a negative review...Grimm is a nice place and certainly worth visiting when in the area...we just felt it didn’t measure up to others we visited on this tour (ex. Loveland Ales in the same town).
Maybe a little off the beaten bath, but well worth the visit. They are a German style brewery, so have that in mind before visiting. Service was excellent and very friendly. At 4:00 p.m. on a weekday afternoon it was fairly busy. Thought all of the styles I sampled were well made. Would return next time I am in town.
Small to medium sized open brewery in East Loveland. Above average ambiance, can get a little cramped on weekends. They had several beers on tap and some bombers available to go, most of which are pretty good German-style beers. This used to be the spot to go in Loveland, but with several other breweries emerging, I’m not so sure.
Visited on 10/10/12. GABF Week. (Stop #5 of the day)
A: The atmosphere is decent, the tasting room is a little small and can hold about 30 people comfortably. The bar can hold about a half dozen people with upright tables scrattered around.
Q: The quality of the beers were decent, very typical and true German styles but nothing more than that...typical german style.
S: The service was outstanding, even with the place being somewhat crowded, the bartenders were very outgoing, friendly, and knowledgeable.
S: They had about 7-8 beers spread across the german based styles
V: Pints were 4-5 bucks each, depnding on the beer.
Overall, a nice place to visit, especially if you like german styled beers.
Visited with Aaron and Bobby. Business park tasting room/brewery. Nice decor inside with plenty of dark stained wood. No real bar seating, but a good amount of tables around the tasting room. Really friendly bartenders and the brewer was very friendly and happy to answer all our questions. The beers are all German styles and are mostly well done and are all fairly enjoyable. Would certainly return.
Nice little tasting room in an industrial park. They have about a dozen house taps going and do both flights and individual samples. Some of the beers were quite good and others just OK but I didn’t have anything bad. Well, I wouldn’t ever order the lichtenheimer again but it was more or less to style. After a few minutes of sampling the brewer came over with some free tasters of the newest beer Devil’s Riddle which is an old ale aged in bourbon barrels. It was pretty good. A few minutes later he came back with tasters of the Berliner with two different syrups. They were nice but I prefer it without the syrup. He was a really nice guy and offered us free pints. It’s a shame that we had other places to be, otherwise I wouldn’t have minded hanging out and having a few. Like most industrial warehouse breweries they don’t serve food but you can bring it in. They had a food truck in the parking lot too.
This rating is for their new space located about 5 minutes off of I-25. Clean interior, complete with dark wood, artwork, and Germanic looking decorations. Friendly and attentive staff, who knew a small amount about the beers. Very reasonably priced, and I don’t think I had a bad beer during my visit, nor have I had a bad beer from their bottles. Cool little joint with a great feel to it. A must-stop if you’re in the area and definitely worth seeking out if you are in Fort Collins/Windsor/Berthoud.
Stopped here during the weekend of GABF 2012. It is located in a kind of obscure area, but the taproom is pretty nice. They had around 10 different beers available during my visit. The beers here focus on German styles of beer, which I love. It looks like they also branch out into others styles, like the scotch ale they had available when I was there. I was pretty impressed with the beer they offered and the brewery as a whole.
