Fort Collins Brewery Will Be Closing After Being Acquired By Red Truck

imageThis from Fort Collins:

With a heavy heart the Peters’ family announce the Fort Collins Brewery will be closing it doors in July.  After several months of looking for a brewery partner to invest in our brand and facility, FCB sold to Red Truck Beer out of Vancouver, B.C. During this transition, the FCB brand will be phased out. We were very excited to work alongside Red Truck Beer and disappointed to make this announcement.  

FCB will continue to operate supplying quality, fresh beer through July, in addition to allowing our staff time and assistance in finding new career options. We thank all of our partners, vendors and most importantly customers for the tremendous support over the past 13+ years.  Cheers —

This update from the Coloradoan:

Fort Collins Brewery has been sold and its products will fade out this summer.
Canadian craft brewery Red Truck Beer Co. has purchased the 35,000 square-foot 1020 Lincoln Ave. facility to start U.S. operations.
The Vancouver-based Red Truck plans to obtain its federal brewing license by the end of the year and open a new brewpub called Truck Stop in the Fort Collins space in spring of 2018. RB+B Architects are working on the renovations.
