Rent Out the Taproom

I can’t believe that May brings the 5th month that Funkwerks has been open! Since December, we have been approached by a handful of fans of our beer to host an event in the taproom. With the enjoyment of our grand opening in January, it is easy to see why. Our cozy tasting area allows a group, whether it’s a business function or a birthday celebration, to get together and create an experience for any occasion. 
Betsy from Cohere recently hosted an anniversary party in the taproom this month and had this to say, “Your taproom was the perfect laidback and fun atmosphere we were looking for! Our experience could not have turned out better.”

Along with having Funkwerks beer during the event, you are welcome to schedule a catering service to provide you food as well. So far, we’ve had everything from a potluck for a birthday celebration to Pizza Cazbah setting up its mobile pizza oven in our parking lot for the recent Cohere function. 
For additional information, please contact me via e-mail at

As always, enjoy!

Puppy treats benefit Animal House shelter

Now that it feels like springtime in Fort Collins with rolling storms and flowers blooming, it is nice to know that you can bring your puppy to Funkwerks and enjoy a beer out on our fenced-in patio.

With the addition of our picnic tables along with the patio table and chairs, there are plenty of places to sit, relax, and enjoy some sun with your furry friend. We even have little puppy bags for easy cleaning of the lawn.

Most importantly, though, we have doggie treats for your companion to snack on with donations going to Animal House. This local animal shelter provides a second chance to pets that may have been euthanized elsewhere. Also providing grooming for your pooch, Animal House is a great place to go and get some of that fur off for the warm days ahead. All proceeds help ensure care for all the Animal House guests waiting for adoption.

So, please help us here at Funkwerks this summer raise as much as we can.  A treat for you brings another meal for one less fortunate.

Spring Fever is in the Air

Spring has already been a great season for us at Funkwerks! Our patio was recently outfitted with a custom-made patio table and chairs, created for us by the guys at Loading Dock Design. Thank you, Zach and Jeremy. We love the new set-up on the patio!

Over the last several weeks, we’ve welcomed some new beers to our menu in the taproom, our Barrel Aged Saison and Bastille Biere de Garde, and just the other day we re-released the Maori King, our Imperial Saison. This hoppier version of our Flagship Saison has been a taproom favorite and, as a fan of hoppy beers myself, I’m super excited to have it back on tap. To mark its return, the brewers decided we should give the brew its own shirt. Available here in the taproom, the black t-shirts feature a Maori design created by a fan (thanks, Sam!).

I’m also excited to announce another bit of excitement for us. This weekend, our sister brewery Crooked Stave is tapping its first batch, the spring seasonal Poudre Foudre. This Belgian-style Pale is another great addition to our ever-growing list of beers for you to enjoy this spring in our taproom. Congrats, Chad, on tapping the Poudre Foudre!

If you’re here on a Saturday, we offer tours of the brewery at 2 p.m. So come as you are, grab a beer, and take in some rays on the newly improved patio.

See you soon,
