We had an odd trip to Funkwerks. We had a Groupon, which fro $25 got both my girlfriend and I a full flight of all six beers they had on tap, a really great looking tulip glass with the FW logo on it and a couple of bombers to go. Overall, a great deal.
However, about 30 minutes after we arrived a large bus pulled up and dropped off a bachelor party, so it immediately went from quiet, comfortable afternoon to wild and crazy mid-bachelor party. Granted, this is not the breweries fault, but when one middle-aged, overweight guy decided to take his shirt off, and three other dudes followed his lead it really killed the atmosphere. Again, not the fault of the brewery, however, nothing was done about it. The bar and wait staff just looked disgusted and allowed it to continue, which was quite irritating.
The quality of the beer was good, although, with only Belgian-style brews, I was not sampling my favorite types of beer. The portions, however, were very generous and a few of the beers I will seek out to try again upon moving to Boulder in the summer. The Saison in particular was good.
Our table service was outstanding, minus the lack of control that our waitress and the bartenders had over the pack of over-the-hill former frat boys. Otherwise, she was attentive and informative, something I appreciate in a brewery's waitstaff. I can not stand going to a brewery and having some cute college chick deliver a tray full of beer samples and then not have any ability to discuss any of it. I am here to LEARN and experience, not to look. There are Hooters and strip clubs everywhere, I don't need that at my brewery.
The selection was somewhat minimal, which is to be expected from a new, small brewery. The line up that they do offer, however, was clearly crafted with care.

biked over to funkwerks from odell - a straight shot just a few miles down the road in an industrial area.
funkwerks is pretty bare bones but the backyard is very chill with a number of barstools, a bags set and some grass to spread out in.
beer quality is exceptional - definitely enjoyed everything i had from funkwerks on this most recent trip. To-go bottle selection was maybe 6 or 7 different variations. A must hit in Fort Collins. You can't skip Odell I don't think, but I much prefer Funkwerks.

First time here, and I'm really enjoying it!
Small taproom, constructed out of predominately wood siding, and floors. Small "tin roof" style bar, with 7 stools. (2) 4 top high tops, (1) 3 top high tops, and (3) 2 top high tops. There is an outdoor area with a slew of picnic tables. I do wish however that it were less windy outside, because I'd be out there enjoying the awesome temperature and sunshine.
There's room for 12 beers on their taps, but only 7 on today. Personally I'd recommend their standard Saison if you havent had it before, but having had it, I went with a Nelson Sauvin single hop Saison and it was great - so try a different version of it if possible.
No major food but they do have cheese plates and snacks.
If you're in the area, I strongly recommend stopping in. Fun, small place, with some great beers!

The taproom had a nice selection of their beers at reasonable price on tap. They also offer a variety of bombers for purchase to take home. They also have a nice patio and grassy area where dogs are welcome. They also have beam bag toss which is fun on a nice day.
