The space at Pateros Creek is absolutely rad. Everything is wooden and primitive. An assortment of bar games are available including free darts and foosball. The bartender was cheery and passionate about the beer. Their Kolsch wasn’t quite what it should be, but their smoked bock is absolutely excellent. Not only was the recipe great, but the clarity and mouthfeel show that they took their time and did that beer right. With an extra convenient location to the downtown transit center, I’ll likely be back.
A nice little brewery right outside the old town square in Fort Collins. Small interior but a solid offering of beers. Good service too.

I stopped here several times while living in Fort Collins. Nice location just north of Old Town. They’ve expanded into the adjacent space and occasionally have live music. Service is usually great because they’re not too busy. The selection and quality of beer is average and fairly priced. Nice, friendly people and usually pretty quiet (for a brewery).
Visited with Aaron and Bobby. Really small tasting room with a smallish patio outside. Tiny bar where people sit and you order, so it gets a little cramped. Service was a little slow. They seemed to be taking care of a group of locals and chitchatting more than anything. They had 13 beers on tap and we (unfortunately) tried all of them. The tasters were also expensive, worked out to almost $3 each. Terrible beers. The bartender was nice, though and did come to ask us if we were alright. Tiny, cramped place and crappy beers make this a fairly unattractive place to go back to.

We walked by here the night before while bar hopping in downtown Fort Collins but they were closed. The tasting room is tiny. They have a couple of tables and half a dozen stools at the bar. They also have a dozen house beers on tap. By this point in the day we had already had our fair share of mediocre beer so we weren’t in the mood to pretend to like sub par beers. I gave everything a fair shake but I wasn’t prepared to overlook the apple and butter flavors. The bartender was extremely nice and came by our table to check on us periodically. I didn’t realize it until the next day when I was told that the brewer was standing behind us at times listening to some of the comments. I don’t think I said anything too bad but I did get a good laugh at the “Stevetoberfest.” I would probably not revisit this place.
Small tap room decorated, as what can best be described as, mountain cabin design. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was inviting. All beers were below average, but nothing was down-right terrible. Had live music and the place seemed pretty fun. I don’t think I will be back anytime soon, but hey, tickers goin’ tick.
Stopped in at Pateros Creek over the weekend of GABF 2012. Nice location located within walking distance of Old Town Square, with a small but nice taproom area. Tried two sampler trays with all the beers they had available at the time. I had very friendly service. Even though they were very busy, one of the bartenders made sure that we got to try every beer they had available. I really wanted to like this place, but the beers were very disappointing. At least 1 of their beers tasted infected, and most of the others could use some improvement. I would probably put this brewery near the bottom of the list for breweries in Fort Collins to visit.
A stop in Fort Collins not too far from Equinox. Parking available. Friendly staff and pretty crowded. Sampling flights were reasonably priced. The beers could use some work though. Not a bad stop in the area.
Small taproom with a kindof livingroom feel to it, its just the bar and 2 tables. Friendly and helpfull service. 6 beers on tap while we where there, those where lacking and will need alot more work. 1 was clearly infected and should never been served.
