Black Bottle Brewery

Est. 2010

Black Bottle Brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, first opened its doors back in December of 2012. After home brewing for years Sean Nook, the founder and brewmaster, pulled a group together to make it a way of life. And why call it Black Bottle you might ask? Cause’ calling it any other color of bottle just wouldn’t sound as cool.

Located in the heart of Midtown Fort Collins, CO. Black Bottle Brewery not only brews awesome beer in our basement but we offer a full food menu through our restaurant. With 40 taps we offer a wide selection of our own pride and joy but don’t shy away from opening up our taps to our friends around the industry. Bringing in national favorites such as; Jolly Pumpkin, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium, plus you’ll often find a few taps pouring beers from international breweries as well. In addition, our coolers are always stocked with a crazy good selection of bottled beers from all over the place. And should you feel like kickin’ it ole school, you can even ask for that 40oz of Old E in a brown paper bag. We won’t judge, promise.

Our convenient location right next to the Hilton of Fort Collins, the Prospect and College Transfort Max Bus stop, and close proximity to the Colorado State University campus, makes coming and going a cinch.  Not to mention, we are backed up to the Mason Bike Trail making arriving by bike super easy!  And, don’t worry we have plenty of parking for all modes of transportation, so come by car, truck, van, motorcycle, scooter, bike, longboard, etc.

Apologies in advance for all the squirrels around the place.  You’ll see what we mean when you stop by.

We hope to see you in real soon!
