Pioneers of Beer

In 1989, our long family tradition of crafting beer culminated with the opening of one of the first micro-breweries in Colorado. Founder Joseph Neckel, certified German Brew Master, joined a small handful of forerunners of the micro-brewing revolution when he started Old Colorado Brewing Company nearly three decades ago. But our roots go back much further. Our family has been brewing beer since the early 1900s and has been involved in all aspects of the brewing process; from milling the grain to creating small batch craft beer.

It Takes Time to Craft Something Worthy

We’ve been doing this for a long time so we take brewing very seriously. As one of the first micro-breweries in Colorado, our “Old Time” values mean hard work, passion and a dash of fun go into every recipe and every batch.

Our old school standards also means as our customers, you are like family. This makes us a little obsessive-compulsive about making beer that’s worthy of your status.

Stay tuned as we fine tune our old recipes into new labels. Trust us it will be worth the wait.

Beer in an Elevator

Living it up while it’s going down.

Of course we’re talking about a grain elevator – what better place to have a tap room? Come check out the coolest place to sip a cold one. Unbelievably, the 5 story elevator and the rest of the building is constructed of wood timbers stacked on top of each other for one solid building. In keeping with the family tradition of being trail blazers, Old Colorado is the first brewery in Wellington, Colorado.
