Went to the Mayor of Old Town yesterday afternoon. I love that they have 100 taps, but was really expecting more beers that aren't as available in the area. Tons of CO beers and a few good selections from the rest of the US and internationally. Hopefully they'll start to get some more obscure beers, surprised there were no Russian River beers at all.
I really like the projected menu (easy to update), but they really need to include style and ABV, as it's just brewery and beer right now. Was told the menu was arranged "light to dark", but there were many examples that did not fit that mold.
Our server was very nice, but didn't seem to know much about the beers and mixed up our beer order (gave each of the 3 people at my table each others beers). I ordered a La Trappe Quad and was giving a Hop Rod Rye, which my friend ordered. They were in the same style glass, so I didn't catch it until I took a sip. The guy w/ the Hop Rod rec'd an Arrogant Bastard, which was ordered by the other guy in our group (who got my quad).
I'll keep tabs on their taplist online and will return when interesting (to me) beers pop up, or when they add more info about each beer to the menu.
EDIT: OK, so I've been a few more times and the service is getting better and more knowledgeable. The selection seems to offer more and more obscure options now, so raising my score.

- Have been to the Mayor a couple times, and have always had a great time. Food is very unimpressive, but sheer number and degree of rare and delicious brews is extremely impressive. Would suggest coming here for anyone that enjoys Colorado craft and beyond...

The Mayor is a nice place. The beer selection is extensive with 100 beers on tap. They frequently have beers that are hard to find elsewhere. However, it's kind of like cable TV- 100 channels and nothing on. I find that sometimes they don't have anything that I want. The servers are generally friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. They are a little too reluctant to provide samples of beers- after all, they have a lot of beers that most people have never tasted before. The problem is that when you are paying $8 for a beer, you don't want to get stuck with one that you don't like. We ordered sandwiches and they were very tasty and reasonably priced. But the beers are very pricey and there is NEVER A HAPPY HOUR- EVER. Most beers are $6 for a pint but double IPAs and other higher ABV beers are $8 for an 8- ounce glass. I just cannot afford to visit this place often- particularly when there are so many other bars in Fort Collins with a good selection and $2-3 pints.

Great place! Nice beer selection that is always rotating to bring in different beers from all over. Atmosphere is calm with little for decorations, but it fits the mood they are going for. Drinks are a bit pricy, but worth it for most of the brews... Plus, it keeps out the party crowd since its adjacent to a major college. Despite being across the street from the campus, the crowd is mixed and never loud/crazy as you would find at a "college bar". The wait staff is very knowledgeable about their products considering the rate in which they rotate new beers, showing that they must go through a training course and have to try a large number of them if not all. This place is doing great things for the culture in this beer mecca!

I have been in a couple of times now, and i just can't get into this place.
The selection of beers is great, sure, but if you are not already an expert it is overwhelming. Also do not go if you are on any kind of budget unless you want to be the guy who is advertising they are on a budget by asking the price every single time you order.
I thought some of the prices were pretty high for what you got. Do not order a cocktail here.
Supposedly there is a printed price list somewhere, but I never got to see one.
I found the seating to be generally awkward with short tables too close to tall tables so you end up with a butt in your face or your butt in someone else's face most of the time. The wait staff is attractive. I don't care for the lighting.
The thing that really bothered me was the inconsistency. A couple of people at our table ordered the exact same beer about 1 hour apart. The first beer came and was in a balloon glass or some other fancy glass and was sold at one price, the second time the same beer came in a different glass, which seemed significantly smaller, and was more expensive.
A similar thing happened on another visit as well, a beer coming in a pint one time and a pilsner glass another time.
Thanks to Red Table, the food is good and it is affordable and has good portions.
I can get so many of the beers locally at the source or at better bars, it seems silly to go into an uncomfortable atmosphere to try to enjoy one.
