This place feels good and looks good. With it being split apart from a pool hall and a restaurant, it gives everyone a reason to try it out. Pool tables are well kept up and a large number of them as well. Decent jute box and an open kitchen that fills the room with excellent oak pizza aromas. There wasnt a part that looked dirty or not kept up. The only let down here is the drink. While the majority of there beers are just ok with a few that stick out. In the end you dont walk out feeling unsatisfied.

Coopersmith's is a very impressive establishment. First off, there are two sides to this place: pub side (where the restaurant is and where you can sit down and enjoy beers and dinner) and pool side (where there is a very impressive pool hall and a ping pong table and also a full bar.) Occasionally the two sides have different beers available. The beers are pretty good at Coop's. It's not a world-class brewpub, but it is definitely above average. There is always something I will enjoy pretty well, but nothing ever mind blowing. The service has been adequate, with no complaints from me. The food is fine, typical pub grub, but I'm not very picky. Coop's is a great place to hang out and I'm glas it's around.

This is a good brewpub. I would call Coopersmith's a standard for brewpubs. The beers are good. The selection is awesome even if some of the beers aren't, especially some of the older standby's. Then again some of the beers are inspired. Dwight makes forays into all the beer realms. I'm anxiously awaiting the next lambic release. There's something for every palate, and the build your own 6 beer tasting is great fun.
The atmosphere is busy with enough staff playing around to make it a bit soap opera-ish. It looks like a fun place to work, and there's diversity of characters. Our service was fine, even if the server wasn't knowledgable about beer. He was willing and able to run beers for us, and find out any information we wanted from more experienced bartenders. Now we were dining in the pub-side which is traditional bar on one side, pub sitting on the other. The kitchen is accessible, and was totally efficient tonight. The crew is currently totally well-trained as the food was quick, and delicious. Bear in mind, there is a pool-side with pool tables, wilder-looser atmosphere, and a wood-fired pizza oven. I've enjoyed many good times on that side as well.
It's a great set up. It's a very successful pub, and always got business. A must stop when in Fort Collins. Don't forget about Coopersmith's when thinking about New Belgium, Odells, and Fort Collins Brewery. This afternoon we started off with a tour of the Bingham Hill Cheese company, and man what a day. Hit a few tasting rooms, Coopersmith's... Good times.
So you know Coopersmith's is serious about beer there are closeup photos of different hop varieties pictured on the hall walls as you head to the water closet. Also, they use English pints here, and offer stemware for the appropriate styles.
addendum: Been back semi-regularly and I have to say their cask offerings are awesome! It's freakin' awesome to be able to get great cask beer at a local pub. The kids love it, the wife loves it, it's a great place for a meeting, or a party, or to just hanker down and talk with other bar flies.

I was dealing sleep deprivation, long flight irratability, and high altitude hallucinations. I prescribed myself, and then exceeded the USDA recommended daily allowance of La Folie, and was feeling a good deal better, swimmingly blissful almost. I could stand to grab a bite though, as self prescribing on an empty stomach is a no-no and what with Coopersmith's being a mile or so from New Belgium, well, there we were...
Entering past a small room with fermenters, you're in the bar area, a dozen tables and seating for a dozen at the bar, overlooking the fermenters. The main dining froom is attached. It's a long brick room with archway windows, track lighting and ceiling fans, and framed artwork for sale. The room has 6 booths & 6 tables in a raised seating area facing an open kitchen and another dozen tables to the rear, facing a door leading to an outside seating area populated with potted plants beneath an awning.
12 beers (Wheat, Bitter, Pale Ale, Gold, Nut Brown, Bourbon Stout, Scottish, APA, Octo, Stout, Steam, Mead), a cider and 2 sodas (Cream & Ginger Ale). Unfortunately, the Punjabi Pale Ale was not available. You can do beer samplers in quantities of 4, 5 or 6, and the beers are otherwise available in 5 oz bullets, 10 oz mugs, 18 oz drafts or 60 oz pitchers. The Octo was light & slightly malty, the APA nicely hoppy & off sweet, the Stout smelled medicinal and was roasty and oaty, the Nut Brown clean & bitter, the Scottish sweetishly malty, the Wheat a hazy, light straw color, and the Bourbon Stout was too thin and had no body. Nice flavor but it's no Heresy.
Food was standard pub grub, service was pleasant and attentative, no complaints with either.
A door off the bar area takes you into a hallway leading to the bathrooms that hold a collection of "Hop centerfolds" A bunch of framed pictures, each one displaying a close up of a different hop variety. Most unusual but real cool.
Across the way from the front doorway is the other half of Coopersmith's. They've got a curved bar in there, also seating roughly a dozen, a good deal more seating, wood fired pizza ovens, darts, and a dozen pool tables. A lot more lounge than the more formal bar & restaurant. A solid place overall and a good pair up after a New Belgium excursion.

Located in downtown Fort Collins, a block or so off of College Blvd. It is pretty easy to find. Coppersmiths has two separate buildings, the pool side has pool tables and a slightly different menu and beer list than the pub side. The pub side is the main restaurant. The décor is clean and modern, heavy on the wood, well lit and cozy enough. With that said does feel a little like it belongs to a chain, even though it isnt. That shouldnt be a deterrent.
My girlfriend and I visited this place at dinnertime on a Thursday. We sat at the bar and had a few beers waiting for prAna & family. I liked the fact that they had cask offerings and a very good variety of beer. Also the beer was served at proper temperatures, in clean, dry glasses. The bartender was super nice and very prompt.
The food menu has a good amount of variety as well, I had the fish and chips and they were quite tasty. The Albert Damm Bitter worked well with it. My girlfriend liked her tuna sandwich. Our table service was ordinary but tolerable.
-There is seating outside.
-There is a parking garage across the street.
This is a quality brewpub with a fairly wide selection of beer. The prices were reasonable. If I were in Fort Collins again I would return. Recommended.

After visiting New Belgium, I went to Coopersmith's for a pint and some dinner. They had two buildings next to each other: A restaurant/brewpub and a pool hall. Each has slightly different menus and beers. I found the food good, the staff very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere very nice. I'd recommend this place.
