The little rock-faced building on Mason Street in Fort Collins, Colorado is not the place where you will find the beloved mayor. Although it may not seem like it on the outside, this establishment is just as elegant and as distinguished as we would believe the mayor’s office to be on the inside.
The Mayor of Old Town is one of the newest bars in the Fort Collins area, featuring 100 beers on tap and an exquisite food selection from the Red Table Cafe menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Since breakfast is served all day, I suggest trying the green chili smothered, scrambled egg and cheese filled, avocado topped breakfast burrito known as the Avocado Burrito; served with a small cup of freshly sliced fruits and sour cream on the side, this meal requires an empty stomach beforehand because there is no doubt you will want to clear your plate before you leave.
Dining is delightful at this newly renovated enterprise, but what makes The Mayor of Old Town unique is the expansive assortment of beers on tap. The 100 taps include brews from New Belgium, Budweiser, Odell, Guinness Brewery, Firestone Walker, and many more. So, you may either try something familiar like the classic Bud Light or something unusual like the seasonal Quad which is a dark, fruity style ale that is tangy to the tongue.
You may have passed The Mayor of Old Town and mistaken it as a strictly political place of business. I suggest taking a second look the next time you drive down Mason and drop in for either a taste of the taps or a bite of the breakfast burritos!
