Another one of our favorite local breweries, though it's been close to 4 years since last visiting. This was one of Mrs. RJG's faves but she didn't join me on this trip. And much has changed since we were last here in early 2019. It...appears they purchased (or rented) the space next door and it opened up the brewery quite nicely. It was one of the smaller breweries in town prior. They added flat screens to display the beers they have on tap. Though not too many on offer, and I think technically they remain a nanobrewery. But I found at least one new beer to try. I didn't have the time or capacity to stay around for more - too much to do in a short timeframe. It was a nice visit, and certainly need to get back here at least once a year, hopefully more. For those who haven't been, you'll feel comfortable here. - Regular Joe's GuideMore

Decent selection. No taster flights but can order smaller sized selection options and there is never not the right amount of beer to drink. Happy Campers all round. Sours might be their best beer in house. No food but it's a great stop for drinking...after or before grabbin grub. Sometimes food trucks are around.More

Contrary to other reviews, Fossil Craft doesn't offer full tasting flights; however, we were able to try a small taste of a few brews before choosing what we wanted to drink. Both stouts were fantastic, but my husband and I are partial to sours. As...such, I ordered a glass of the Cherry Pie Sour, while he enjoyed the Strawberry Hibiscus Sour. In addition, we ordered loaded fries and a funnel cake from the food truck (Sticky Fingers). Both were fantastic!More

We stopped here after dinner. Very friendly staff. They offered a good selection of beer and taster menu's. I tried the Red Rocks Amber Ale and the Double Double IPA. Both very good.

We love microbrews and visit them across the country. Take a miss on this one. It's very small and cramped and the beer is poor. I had a stout that had almost no flavor. My husband had a lackluster IPA.

Great local hangout and some really good beer. Visited by the occasional food truck if you get the munchies. Oh, and K9 friendly, so there!

Great beer located just outside Manitou/Old Colorado Springs. Perfect for a post hike/incline beer. Slightly small for seating, but wasn't crowded when we went. A great place for family, friends, and good beer for all tastes and palates.

The beer is very well balanced and the people are great. Plenty of parking and a fantastic stop on the way home from a hike.

The triple IPA is a sneaky one doesn’t have the bitter bite that a normal ipa has. Not really for me though. Enjoy the amber ale and the staff was great. Local food truck showed up was decent but not outstanding. Defiantly come back for...the beers.More

So I caught this place out of the corner of my eye and I’m so glad that I did. Was able to get right in after finagling through parking lot and sit down for a flight of beers. Service was amazing on the Thursday night...I was there (sorry to the young lady, I forgot your name!) but she was super helpful in navigating their in house brews. Locals were welcoming and I felt as if I was at home.More

My boyfriend loves IPAs and said this place had some excellent beers. It's definitely worth the stop. We came over here after getting BBQ from Rudy's (they don't serve food here, but there was a food truck). It's a find hidden away in a strip...mall. Highly recommend.More

Craft beer is outstanding. Associated with Dinosaur Museum in Woodland Park so most of beers have dinosaur names, neat idea.
