FH Beerworks, previously known as Fieldhouse Brewing Company, started in November 2010 when Travis brewed his first batch of home brew. From that point on, both Travis and Niki knew that they wanted to open a business brewing beer. In October of 2013 they were able to lease 2,840 sf at a small retail center in south downtown Colorado Springs. They completed all their tenant improvements themselves and opened their doors on June 26, 2014. When they first opened, they only had 4 taps and were only open 6 days a week. Niki and Travis ran the business themselves without any additional help. Their business and reputation grew rapidly over the last 3.5 years. They had grown to 16 taps, an in-house canning operation and were open 7 days a week. They also had five team members to help meet the demand of their business. Their sales were at a point where their 5-barrel brewing system could not keep up with their demand. They needed a second location where they could have a larger brewing system with cold storage.
Travis and Niki are true entrepreneurs and have always dreamed of growing and expanding FH Beerworks.
They came across an opportunity to expand their business by adding a second location on the east side of Colorado Springs. When their dream of growing their business became a reality, they quickly went to work planning out what this new facility would look like. They want to create a brewery with an expansive taproom and beer garden, similar to ones that are popping up in Denver and Fort Collins. FH Beerworks wanted to be the first brewery like that in Southern Colorado.
We were able to identify a site on Powers with two existing buildings on a large lot that was perfect for a second location. On of our entities purchased the 4.37 acre industrial site on Powers Boulevard where the Fields would be able to have a larger brewery as well as have a huge beer garden for the community. The existing structures have been remodeled as a brewery and taproom, which is leased entirely by FH Beerworks. The added brewing capacity will eventually increase almost ten times FH Beerworks’ output, allowing them to keep up with their demand and expand their distribution to local liquor stores. The outdoor beer garden and private barrel room will allow them to hold private events and serve more customers. FH Beerworks’ second location opened in October of 2018.
