Looking for some cozy outings this season? Here are five of our musts in Fort Collins!

Maxline Brewing - Plum Spice Ale

Besides being one of the friendliest breweries in town, Maxline Brewing has fantastic seasonal events and delicious seasonal brews as well. One of our recent favorites is the Plum Spice Ale, a great mix of ripe plums and Chinese five spices. This is the perfect beer to bring to any holiday gathering as they offer all of their beers in 32 oz cans to go.

Bean Cycle - Hot Chocolate with CBD

Bean Cycle is known for having the perfect space to meet a friend or to catch up on some important work. With its cozy atmosphere, fun little shop in the back and delicious treats, this is a spot for everyone. Our must have favorite is the hot chocolate with their coconut CBD oil. The hot chocolate is extra creamy and cozy and the CBD brings an extra relaxing element to help get you through the hustle and bustle of the holidays.

Little Bird Bakery - Lavender Shortbread

As a shortbread lover, the Little Bird Bakery’s lavender shortbread cookie is a must have this holiday season. Besides being easy on the eyes this tasty treat is perfect with your favorite cup of tea or coffee.

Social - Sleepy Hollow

Social is the place to be year round. A must try drink for the holidays is the Sleepy Hallow, which includes Bear Creek Spiced Rum, pumpkin, Spiced Butter Batter and hot water. If this doesn’t warm your bones, I don’t know what will.

DC Oakes - Meatloaf sandwich

This menu regular really hits the spot for us this time of year. DC Oakes is a great spot to take the family this holiday season and try this hearty, warm sandwich and other items on their extensive menu. It makes us feel like we are at home with mom’s homemade meatloaf.
