By far the best tap house along the Front Range. The beer selection on their 70+ taps is first rate, with rarities, old friends and a few you may not of even heard of. These folks tap into the big boy lists from the distributors and doing so get the best rare beers. The bottle list is stunning, albeit a... More

Definitely a great spot to take an "out of towner" thats wanting to experience some great beers they can't find back home! They've also got a full food menu as well... I recommend trying their Parmesan Truffle Fries - they're delicious after a beer or 3 ; )

On Thursday nights they have free of charge what is called Open Musicians Night. They have a great house band that plays great Blues. If you are a musician or vocalist you put your name on a list and will be invited to come up with your instrument and replace a band member and join in. Great fun, Great, Great,... More

We could hear the band playing on the patio and knew we would have fun. I loved the strawberry beer 🍺, so many choices. We had the wings and tacos. Both where fantastic 😉. We will definitely be back. This place gives our regular hang out, the Rio a bit of competition.

50 taps, plus bottles. Excellent selection, constantly rotating. You're not here for the food. You're here to try some amazing Colorado beers you can't find at home. Come early when there's live music.

Probably a decent place to quench your thirst but the quality of the food and service left a bit to be desired. The person tending bar should not have been handling food or drinks as he was highly contagious with a very bad cold. We wished we hadn't taken a table.

Large selection of local brews of local. Limited menu, but always tasty. We like to go here when we want something out of the ordinary. Great low key atmosphere.

My husband and I stopped here while in Fort Collins. They have a very cool variety of local beers. It is a small space with a few tables. A bar atmosphere. They have a small menu to choose from if you are hungry. While you could bring your child with you to this stop I'm m glad we left our... More

"You want your beer bar to come with a good pedigree? Okay - this one was founded in 2012 by Jeff Willis, formerly of Austin's The Ginger Man, and was bought earlier this year by the folks who run beer magazine Craft Beer & Brewing. That industry expertise is apparent in the Tap & Handle's 74 rotating drafts, where uber-rare brews like Perennial Abraxas and Hill Farmstead Dorothy are not uncommon finds...the best venue to drink such wonders in all of Choice City." - Draft Magazine(R)
