OUR STORY

Our brewer, Christian, started homebrewing as a way to get his hands on beers that he wanted to drink but couldn’t always find. Inspired by his travels, he focused mainly on Belgian and French styles. Along the way he became even more inspired by the Belgian’s approach to brewing – blending history, science and art to create complex and delicious beers. Avant Garde Aleworks was born out of a need to share these beers with the community.

After opening our doors in 2019 with just four beers on tap, you can now find a rotating assortment of Saisons, Strong Ales, IPAs and hard seltzers in the taproom. We wanted to create a community gathering place where locals and tourists alike could enjoy good beer, music and amazing mountain views.

Drawing inspiration from Belgium & France, we aim to bring the flavors and aesthetics we love back to the Rocky Mountains. We brew all of our beer on-site in Estes Park with refreshing Rocky Mountain water.

At Avant Garde Aleworks we strive to integrate ancient aging methods and unique twists in order to provide a one-of-a-kind drinking experience.
