Grand Lake Brewing opened it's doors in 2002 in the historic town of Grand Lake. Although being far away from Denver, we knew that this was a special place. Before the brewery opened, the owners would travel with their kids to Grand Lake frequently in order to enjoy the unique fishing, snowmobiling, and hiking this town has to offer. After buying a house and enjoying summers in the mountains, a business opportunity presented itself. As a result a little 3 barrel system brewery opened in the middle of the main street.
We knew that having a brewery at the headwaters of the Colorado River would produce a beer with amazing quality with the help from grains and hops from around the globe. Our brewer dedicates himself to the craft and is truly the backbone of the brewery. He has produced many award winning beers and has been with us every step of the way.
Since the brewery's opening, there have been many re-locations, hurdles, high times, low times, smiles and achievements. All contributing to a fun journey getting us to where we are now. We are currently brewing with a 15 barrel system and produce a large variety of beers. We are in liquor stores and have draft accounts all around the state of Colorado.
