Only ever visited the taproom, not their pub, and review is reflective of that.
Small room with some bench seating also available outside. Not much life to the taproom on my visit, which was middle of the day, mid-week, but been there when its packed and it wasn't all that better. Not a huge fan of the FCB beers to be honest, but did enjoy what I tried on this visit. A solid selection, around 10 beers on tap. Solid service. Overall, not a bad place by any means but in a town with tons of breweries not one that stands out.

I'll admit that Fort Collins Brewing's old location had its charms. Off the beaten path, in a little industrial building, it was cool. But there's a new brewery there, so really nothing lost.
And Fort Collins' new, expanded location is quite the upgrade. A tap room with about the same number of seats I would think, but with and outdoor patio that faces west, giving some view of the foothills and the nice, warm sun in the afternoon. We get windows now, allowing you to see the brewery itself. And in my opinion, the best new addition is the restaurant that they opened, Gravity Ten Twenty. I'm not exaggerating that I think it's the best food in town. I've been there multiple times, had a few different plates, and they're all amazing. The service is fast and friendly, there's an even better view of Fort Collins' plant, and, of course, you can have their entire beer selection with your meal. Or you can just sit at the bar, your choice.
The tap room itself is a little more open than the old place and still has some of that machine aesthetic of the old place, though with more light and a warmer feel. The beers are still their usual mainstays like the 1900, Kidd Lager, Chocolate Stout, Z Lager, and Major Tom's. They always have their seasonals and specially brewed as well. It's a step from the old place and well within biking and walking distance of something like three other breweries, especially Odell. It's not the best in town, but still a good occasional trip. Then again, I tend to think that about most breweries I visit.

Visited here along with Odell and New Belgium. That mile stretch maybe the best area for beer in the country or even the world. The atmosphere was good. Seems like a lot of people who appreciate good beer. The selection was excellent and they allowed flights which for out of town visitors like myself is preferred. They had a few bombers for sale but were out of a couple. As far as quality each beer was "good" in my opinion. I am not sure if many of them were great but they were all consistently good. They seem to have a lot of outdoor events set up in their parking lot area which was fun as well with some discounted beer.

A nice, small but effective tap room with a good view of the brewery operation. They offer two samplers: one with the regulars and one with the seasonals. I went with the seasonals. It included a wood aged ale, a dopplebock with smoked malt, a double chocolate stout, a black IIPA, and a chili porter. I also subbed in a nitro chocolate porter for the coffee stout because I hate coffee. They were all enjoyable. I liked the black IIPA the most. It had an outstanding aroma and good flavor. I have to admit I only stopped in because I was coming back from Odell's and passed by it but I was glad I stopped.
