List of Colorado Breweries in Development

Colorado Breweries in DevelopmentThink Colorado is bursting at the seams with breweries? Think again. Colorado may already have over 240 existing breweries, micro-breweries, brewpubs and nano-breweries in operation, but many, many more are already in development.

According to the Brewer's Association, there are over 100 additional breweries currently in development in Colorado. Some still don't have a name or final location yet. If you think your Colorado community doesn't have a brewery yet, just wait, one just might be coming soon.

The following list is just a taste of what may be coming within the next year or two to the Colorado craft beer scene. If you know of any additional breweries not on this list please post a comment here or on Facebook.
