About Us and stuff


When Our Craft BREWERY Got It’s Start

Sean, founder and brewmaster at Black Bottle Brewery, grew up in Fort Collins and has continued to dig his roots deeper and deeper into the area over the years. Getting hitched to his high school sweetheart Erin, 16 years ago, the two have since started a family AND a badass Craft Brewery. Sean, now has his hands full with his two beautiful daughters and the daily operations of the brewery.  As for Erin, another key aspect of our brewery, she has her hands full with all the above, including Sean.

How Our Brewery Got Started

What started as a hobby some 20-ish years ago, Sean’s homebrewing quickly took over all his free time. Like every homebrewer, he wanted to open his own brewery. Not that easy.  With continuous encouragement from family and friends, the desire to pursue his passion and his wife’s blessing, of course, the garage operation finally became his career. It took hours, weeks, months, and years of hard work, late night brainstorming sessions, and a few beers (few too many), to bring it all together. It now has been over 10 years and everything is going well…

Nowadays, beers that once were only shared amongst family and friends at block parties, birthday celebrations, baseball games, and CSU tailgates, and weddings are now enjoyed by the masses. A small step toward the end goal of taking over the world, someday…
