New Building Plans Announced
Out with the old and in with the new brew! The Fort Collins Brewery (FCB) of Ft. Collins, Colorado will soon be packing up it's old building and moving to a much bigger and brand new facility.
In a statement dated November 9, 2009, FCB said the following about their new building and brewing facility:
"The new location is on the corner of Lincoln and Lemay just a few buildings East of Odell. We couldn't be happier about being part of the "brewery triangle" as the city of Fort Collins is calling it and being closer to Old Town.
We will have a tasting room, community room for booking private events or parties and a full service restaurant will glass walls providing a full view of the brewery's operations. Not much is being released on the restaurant's menu, but it will center on local, fresh and unpackaged ingredients.
Construction has just started and we are shooting for May (2010) completion. Currently we brew 7,500 barrels/year, we are striving for 10,000 barrels the first year in our new facility and our capacity is 30,000 barrels/year. There are employment opportunities coming in the restaurant and tasting room.
We will be completely moving out of the new space and currently marketing it to potential tenants, even new start-up breweries (Funkwerks).
The new facility has many green elements such as an underground tank system to allow us to trap all of the waste water from the brewing process and ship it to farmers. Nothing from the brewery will be going down the drain other than sanitary needs. We also have various green materials planned in the construction such as insulated metal panels , skylights and have paperless restrooms."
Below is an image taken from their website giving some additional hints as to what the exterior and interior concept will look like.
