Equinox Brewing coming to Fort Collins

The Northern Colorado brewery scene is about to get even busier. News came this week that yet another craft brewery is coming to downtown Fort Collins in 2010. Say hello to Equinox Brewing.

Equinox Brewing is planning to open in the Spring of 2010 and will be located next door to Hops & Berries, a downtown homebrew supply store at 133 Remington Street, in Fort Collins, CO.

According to an article by Kristen Olsen, the Fort Collins Craft Beer Examiner, Equinox Brewing plans to open in April 2010 and have 7 beers on beer engines as well as a weekly special beer on firkin.

Equinox Brewing already has a web site started as well as a Facebook page.

Plans for the brewery include an outdoor beer garden as well as easy access to the Hops & Berries homebrew supply store. The beer garden itself will tie together the brewery and the homebrew store. Click image to enlarge.

Plans started to get out about the new venture back in late November. The brewery will be within walking distance of several other breweries including Coopersmith's, New Belgium, Odell and the Fort Collins Brewery. Another new brewery, Pateros Creek Brewing, is also planning to open up in Fort Collins in 2010.

With all of the breweries already in the area will there be enough interest in yet another small brewhouse? Apparently so. Craft beer is quite popular despite the slow economic conditions. Time will tell whether or not Fort Collins can sustain all of these breweries long term.

The idea of combining the attraction of a homebrew store and a brewery is nothing new to Colorado. Another popular brewery in Colorado, Dry Dock Brewing in Aurora, Colorado does the same thing.

Look for this new brewery to open it's doors this Spring. More news about their upcoming brews should be posted in the near future.
