Where can I get the Beer Cheese like they had at baby Doe's?

Beer cheese soup? If you look it up there's a couple imitation recipes. Austin's American Grill in Fort Collins is known for their beer cheese soup but I've not had it.

Bought a fantastic slab of beer cheese from a local cheesemaker, MouCo, in Fort Collins at the local farmer's market last weekend but I don't think that's what you're asking about.

This specific beer cheese soup was better than any I've had. Don't know what their secret was.

The unfortunate secret was probably it was a Sysco mix made by the tub. Lots of places do that shit. I worked in a rib joint in school and folks raved about the secret recipe bbq sauce. It was nothing but number 10 cans of Kraft barbecue sauce. Split between regular and hot, which just had a cup of cayenne dumped in per gallon.

It was a nicer place than that. Old school fine dining in Denver. It's now an apartment building.

I haven't spent a ton of time in FC, but we were up there on a college visit this summer, and there are definitely a ton of great breweries.  As for me, I'm very partial to Equinox in the Old Town area.  Love the brews and the chill atmosphere.  There's a fly shop just down the block, although I didn't make it there.

Cooper Smiths has decent food and okay brews, but sitting on their back patio is very pleasant.  I didn't get to hit Funkwerks this time and it's been years, but it was great back then.

I'll second Ginger and Baker, very good for breakfast.

@wild_turkeyJust saw your post, hope this helps. My favorite breweries in town are Zvei and Stodgy. Neither offers food but there's usually a food truck, and Zvei is close to fast food or a sandwich shop. Stodgy is a renovated old retail building and the front is grassy and shady, with picnic tables littered about. Zvei is german style and recently expanded so offer more outdoor seating options. 

Agree, New Belgium's patio is tough to beat.

Rally King is also excellent but in a strip mall next to an axe throwing place, if that's your thing. Their beer covers a wide gamut. 

A ton of new breweries have opened - there's so many and it's difficult to go wrong.

Food - it's not exactly a foodie town. 

Near campus and old town - Avogardos, The 415, Slyce Pizza Company, Choice City (Burgers, sandwiches).

Chinese noodles - Beijing Noodle House is the real thing

Thai - Kinn Thai

Breakfast near Old Town - Mugs, Rainbow. Silver Creek if it doesn't have a long wait.

Breakfast around Town - Original Pancake House (not ihop), First Watch, La Creperie

Nicer places in Old Town - Sonny Lubick's, Philippe Bistro and French Bakery

Fried chicken - Music City Hot Chicken, Backyard Chicken & Donuts (a short drive from Fort Collins)

Food truck - yellow food truck serving tacos in front of Jax Outdoor on N College

Thanks for the recs. We had a fantastic time. The weather was damn near perfect.

Friday we went to New Belgium, then ate dinner at Jax Fish House, then went to The Whiskey bar

Saturday we had Silver City for breakfast, then did a guided fly fishing trip with St. Peter’s Fly Shop on the Poudre River, then beers and a late lunch at Odell, then beers at Funkwerks, then pizza somewhere I don’t remember, then sleep. I understand there was some college football played somewhere yesterday but I didn’t have time for that bullshit.

I can’t say enough good things about St. Peter’s Fly Shop. We had 2 guides for 4 guys and they were excellent. None of us had ever been fly fishing, it was just something I wanted to try and I convinced friends to also give it ago. The fly shop provided everything, all of us caught at least one fish, and it was just an all around badass way to spend a beautiful fall day.

And people make fun of PAC 12 country for not having the same enthusiasm for CFB lol. I wouldn't either if I had access to this on the weekend. Sounds like a great trip.

The Chef’s tasting menu at Barolo Grill is probably the best meal I’ve ever had. Blew Mizunas and Fruition out of the water for me.

I wanted to thank you for the recommendation. We ate there last night and had a blast. Our waitress was a cute little brunette from Austin. Didn’t tell her that I knew any of you assholes, though. Mousse on the left and apple donuts on the right.
