Horsetooth renamed Pateros Creek Brewing Company

Pateros Creek Brewing CompanyHow quickly things can change. Just a few months ago a new brewery was announced that was going to make Fort Collins Colorado it's home. They spent a lot of time and effort getting their business ready to open only to find out just recently that the name they chose for their business was conflicting with another local brewery's trademarked beer name. So sadly, the new brewery had to find another name or face possible litigation.

The soon to be formerly Horsetooth Brewing Company decided to throw a contest and let their newly formed fan base and locals help them choose a new business name. Over 700+ names were submitted but ultimately only one name was selected.

The new brewery name will now be called: Pateros Creek Brewing Company. Pateros Creek was historically the original name of the Cache la Poudre River, a river that flows through Fort Collins.

Pateros Creek Brewing Company will soon open up a new web site at: Much of the old logo, the outline of Horsetooth Mountain in a beer glass, will remain but under a new name.

You can read more about it in the article written by the Fort Collins Coloradoan. And for a little while you can still access the old Horsetooth site. The new web site isn't up just yet but soon will be.

Hopefully, this will be the last of the legal issues for this new start-up brewery. Look for their location to be finalized in the months ahead and their brewery to open sometime in mid-2010. Cheers!
