I love this place. Yea the selection may be better at some chain nearby but the selection is way more curated and the bartenders know their stuff. People are friendly and just the right amount of dank. True that they don't have food or take credit cards but who cares this place is awesome.

Love this place! Duchesse is my favorite sour. You'll love this hidden-away-but-right-in-the-middle-of-everything bar! Want to find the great little local hideouts? Here it is! BRING CASH.

This place is a good place to get a craft/micro brew. The selection is great.The bar and seating area are very comfortable. Some of the bartenders are very nice while others act bored and indifferent. This place has very irregular hours. Most of the times when I stop by for a beer, they are closed- even when I visit during... More

Great little hide away for big nights like Halloween and New Years, all the cool kids are here! Also, fun art and good ciders make it great.

Our experience was...average and nothing to us made this establishment stand out. There are some good points and not so good points. I would agree that they are beer focused, nevertheless, I was surprised that their array of styles and number of taps to be limiting, but what they did have on tap were rock solid bees. To me the...

Always fun - hard to find though. My only complaint and this is so petty they loose NO starts for it. They do not take credit cards

Good selection of craft beers from local area but focus is on unique and wide selection from the rest of the U.S. and abroad. Snacks are available but emphasis is the beer. This is a small place that reminds one of man's cigar and cognac style bar that is tucked away without adequate signage. To get there, go down the... More

My friends and I have been here a few times and we are always so happy to be in a bar free of the drunken college folks. This bar definitely caters to the young professionals (25s to 35s) crowd. We attribute this to their delicious beer selection carrying a slightly higher than average price ($5-10 per beer). It's cash only,... More

Excellent range of beers that changes each week provided by extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff. Ideal hideaway in this busy college town. Cash only bar.

A great bar off the main strip in Old Town Fort Collins. Has a great selection of beers from all over the world. The building is neat, with old world charm. I must hit when in town.
