Brewing Beer at a Higher Elevation
Since 2011, we have been focused on creating unique ales and lagers of the highest-quality while representing Colorado’s outdoor enthusiasts! Situated in Buena Vista, Colorado along the Collegiate Peaks and Arkansas River, our micro-brews are inspired by the beauty and wonder of the outdoors and exhilarating adventures surrounding us.
Over the years, we have been able to hone our craft and expand our production. Coming from humble beginnings, we began with producing 300-500 barrels annually. As demand from liquor stores, bars and restaurants throughout Colorado increased, we were driven to expand our brewery and taproom. We are now on our way to crafting 500-600 barrels monthly.
The new brew house, manufactured by Newlands System in Canada, is a state-of-the-art 4 vessel production capable of running around the clock! At maximum capacity, we will brew up to 40,000 barrels or about 400,000 cases annually.
We received assistance from the Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Program, to complete the recent expansion with plenty of space to grow into. The purpose of the REDI Program is to help eligible rural communities develop plans and undertake projects to create jobs, drive capital investment, and increase wages to help grow and create resiliency and diversity in the local economy.
As one of Colorado’s fastest growing microbreweries, we have won many awards over the past few years, including the River Runners Pale Ale receiving a 2014 Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup and a 2012 Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival both in the International Style Pale Ale Category. In addition to winning the 2012 North American Brewers Gold Medal, our Jolly Roger Black Lager took home a Bronze Medal at the 2014 All Colorado Beer Festival and our Kickin’ Back Amber Lager received a Silver Medal.
Our Sustainability Promise
We are a strong proponent of canned beers over bottles for these major reasons!
Better for the Environment.
Canned brews have a much smaller environmental impact. According to Novelis, “Currently, approximately 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use, a testament to its long life cycle and infinitely recyclable nature.”
Better ability to preserve the quality of the beer protecting it from light and oxygen.
Suitable to be enjoyed in an outdoor environment and easily transportable in your backpack, kayak or bike cage without adding much extra weight.
