Saying Farewell to Fort Collins Brewery

Red Truck is discontinuing the Fort Collins Brewery brand and closing the brewery, as they plan on opening their own brewpub in this space next […]

In previous trips, we’ve already visited New Belgium Brewing, Odell Brewing, and Fort Collins Brewing Co. This time we decided to get through a few more new, or new to us, craft brewing spots. There is certainly not a […]

Inside the Anheuser-Busch Brewery

On Saturday, January 3rd Jeff and I ventured into the belly of the beast: We embarked on the Budweiser Tour at Anheuser-Busch in Fort Collins. We know what you’re thinking and, yes, we normally prefer our brewery quite a bit craftier. But one day we hope to succeed at visiting every brewery in Colorado, and every brewery includes the big ones. We decided on a whim to scratch this one off our list.

Happy Birthday Again Already: Odell Brewing

Since we’d hit Fort Collins, we’d already visited Fort Collins Brewery and New Belgium Brewing.  The next and final stop on our brewery tour was Odell Brewing Company.  By the time we arrived at Odell’s late Saturday afternoon, this place was packed!  Luckily it was a beautiful day, so while a few of our group snagged a table inside, the rest of us grabbed our beers and settled on the patio.  It was cool but […]

Happy Birthday to Me Part Deux @ New Belgium Brewing

Second stop on our Fort Collins birthday weekend tour:  New Belgium Brewing Company, baby!  We were supposed to be here for my birthday last year, but a blizzard kept us away.   We scheduled this tour months ago and thankfully, the weather was perfect this time around.  Score! Our tour guide was wonderful, but sadly though we asked her name a multitude of times, I still can’t remember it.  I think it was Lisa, so we’ll […]

Happy Birthday to Me at Fort Collins Brewery

A few months ago, Jeff and I were headed to Longmont for a bike ride when we snuck in a quick detour to Fort Collins.  Despite being in town just a couple of hours, we were able to make three brewery stops, albeit very quick ones.  We promised that someday we’d be back to spend more time with these great breweries, and maybe we’d even bring our friends.  Well, consider it done!   We decided to […]

Fort Collins Part 1: New Belgium, Baby!

The plans for this weekend started small enough. We registered for the G’Knight Ride, a 10-mile ride around Longmont sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewing. Combining our love of biking with our love of beer seemed like a great time. As ride day approached, we decided it might be fun to make a weekend of our trip to northern Colorado. From there, things quickly snowballed to a full-fledged brewery exploration trip. For our first stop, we […]
