The Axe And Ale
Fort Collins’ Premiere Axe-Throwing Bar

The Axe And Ale Offers a New Kind of Fun

Voted a 2020 Top 5 “Date Night” Spot by NoCo Magazine

If you are mired in a routine of visiting the same boring watering holes you have frequented for years – seeing the same faces, sitting on the same lousy bar stools, and trying to play pool with splintered cues that have not been replaced in ages – it is time to break out of the rut. The Axe And Ale is an invigorating new venue in Fort Collins, CO that offers fun activities, an extensive beer selection, and a welcoming environment to gather with friends, both new and old. A locally-owned and family-operated establishment, The Axe And Ale is Fort Collins’ premiere axe-throwing bar. But the fun does not stop with our namesake activity. We have other bar games, eating or drinking spaces, and a friendly staff eager to enhance your enjoyment.

Axe-Throwing Is Quickly Becoming a Favorite Pastime

In recent years, axe-throwing has become increasingly popular across the country. There are competitions across the nation with hordes of participants. It is even getting media coverage with televised tournaments. The Axe And Ale has brought this new favorite pastime to Fort Collins so that thrill-seekers from here to Denver and beyond can experience the latest craze. Our facility has nine dedicated indoor axe-throwing lanes, each surrounded by a chain-link fence and measuring 10’6” high. We also have one outdoor lane. Our staff will help you understand the mechanics of axe-throwing and teach you games to play with your friends. Between games, visit our bar, patio, or seating areas to enjoy a relaxing drink.
