The Best Places to Watch the Super Bowl in Fort Collins

One of the best aspects of the Super Bowl is the fun social environment that exists while watching the game alongside friends and family members. Naturally, such an environment attracts beer and greasy food, which makes the experience all the more enjoyable. So, what places in Northern Colorado host all of the abovementioned Super Bowl necessities? Thankfully, we did some digging and discovered some of the best bars for watching the game in the Northern Colorado area.

Some establishments have food or drink specials up their sleeves, and others are just downright wonderful environments for such an occasion. Read on and find the perfect place to spend your Super Bowl Sunday cheering on the Broncos. Wherever you go, you’re guaranteed to drink quality beer, stuff your face with delicious food and scream and yell with perfect strangers. Because what would football be without high-fives and stranger hugs?

CB and Potts


C.B. & Potts Restaurant & Brewery

Super Bowl Sunday Hours: 11 a.m. – 2 a.m.

Location: 1415 West Elizabeth Street Fort Collins, CO 80521

Phone Number: 970-221-1139

Many Colorado State University graduates have fond memories of C.B. & Potts going all the way back to their start almost 40 years ago, because of its proximity to campus. The original location expanded to seven locations in the state of Colorado, two of which are in Fort Collins.

This is the place to go to watch any game because of the exceptional food (including burgers, steaks and seafood) and top-of-the-line beers. In fact, C.B. & Potts began brewing their own beer in 1996, and thus began their contribution to the evolution of the craft beer industry. Their brewers are focused on creating the freshest and most “drinkable” beers out there, which has earned them over 100 prestigious medals.

C.B. & Potts’ local roots and successful growth throughout the state is proof that they’re worth a visit — especially on an action-packed day like Super Bowl Sunday.
