You read that right. Trails End Taproom now has some craft beer company on the Westside.It will be interesting to see how they make the location work. According to the El Paso County Assessor, the location is only .16 acres, and that neighborhood really isn't designed for a ton of traffic.Time will tell, but we're excited for the prospects! Welcome to COS WeldWerks!Here's the press release:
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO— After four years of innovation and the creation of more than 100 unique beers in 2018, WeldWerks Brewing Co. is poised for growth with the opening of a taproom in Colorado Springs this July. The Greeley-based brewery, which brews Juicy Bits, one of the most highly regarded hazy IPAs in the country, aims to bring both handcrafted beer and community to the good people of Colorado Springs.
“For us, there’s an intrinsic pleasure in putting down roots in communities that inspire us,” said Jake Goodman, Director of Sales and Marketing at WeldWerks. “Colorado Springs has all of the amenities and excitement of a larger, up-and-coming city combined with the warmth, uniqueness, and authenticity of a tight-knit community.”
Located west of Downtown Colorado Springs in the Old Colorado City (OCC) neighborhood where history and small-town charm meet, the new WeldWerks location will set up shop at a former diner called The Dive (3043 W. Pikes Peak Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80904). The building’s design and aesthetic will pay homage to the history of the town.
Brewing operations in Greeley will send suds to the WeldWerks Colorado Springs taproom, which will have a laid-back, family-friendly vibe similar to its Greeley counterpart. What will be different, however, are crafted experiences that are unique to Colorado Springs. The end result will be a lively community gathering place that seeks to weave itself into the fabric of the neighborhood as it has done in Greeley.
“We know and love the already-established Colorado Springs breweries and are looking forward to joining their ranks.” said Goodman. “We want our presence to help continually shine a light on a great community!”
Details including the name of the WeldWerks Colorado Springs location and the date for their grand opening party will be announced at a later time.
