Our last day that 1933 Brewing Company’s doors will be open is Saturday, December 31, from 12-6.

Join our head brewer Zach Wilson and Marketing Coordinator Laura Sickles from 2-6 to celebrate the legacy of

1933 Brewing Company and cheers to new beginnings.

Here is our official press release:

“Brewery Closes for a Metamorphosis”

1933 Brewing Company Closes Its Doors For A Metamorphosis 

Fort Collins, Colorado–December 16, 2016

1933 Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, will close on Saturday, December 31, 2016.

They opened in March 2014 as the 12th craft brewery in the area. The brewery has developed quite the local following in their midtown taproom, and regularly boasts something new on tap – including their famous Chili Beer and newest brew to be released on Wednesday,

December 21, a stout made with LaMar’s Donuts and Woodchip Fire Roasted Coffee.

The brewery specializes in signature brews and blends that are hard to find anywhere else. Head Brewer Zach Wilson, and Marketing Coordinator Laura Sickles, are purchasing the brewery from 1933 Brewing Company owner, Cody Pisacka, and are changing the concept of the brewery, quite significantly, to focus more on their personal passions and dreams. “Zach and Laura have some great ideas in store, and I think this will create a lot of excitement in the area. The brewery has been very special to me, and I appreciate the love and support throughout the years from my customers and employees,” 1933 Brewing Company owner Cody Pisacka stated.

Both Wilson and Sickles are extremely thankful for the opportunity to purchase 1933 Brewing Company and start their own venture, and they could not have done it without the amazing help and support of their employees, the current owner, and their investment partners.  “The hardest part for me, in the closing of 1933 Brewing Company, will be not seeing our regular customers day to day.  We have the most loyal regulars who have been with us since the day we opened. Our patrons are all awesome and we are grateful to call them friends, in fact, we consider them family,” says 1933 Brewing Company’s Marketing Coordinator Laura Sickles.

“It’s been such a privilege to have had the experiences I have had in the craft beer industry, to have worked with such inspiring people, and to have learned something unique in each moment we have shared together.  This is just the first step of many steps yet to come, cultivating something that expresses who I am, a culmination of a lifelong dream, a dream worth stepping up to,” says 1933 Brewing Company’s Head Brewer Zach Wilson.

If you want to try 1933 Brewing Company’s brews before they close, visit them inside the taproom located at 4025 South Mason Street, Fort Collins, Colorado. Also, join them as they celebrate new beginnings and the legacy of 1933 Brewing Company on Saturday, December 31, from 2 pm – 6 pm, in the taproom.

In the meantime, stay tuned to the 1933 Brewing Company’s Website (, Facebook, Instagram (#1933brewing) and Twitter (@1933brewing) pages for up-to-date information on the metamorphosis!


Bootlegger’s Ball – Party like it’s 1933!!

We officially announce that will be hosting a “Bootlegger’s Ball” on Friday, December 5, from 5-8pm.  On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution repealed the 18th Amendment and ended prohibition.  This is the event that inspired us to name our brewery 1933 Brewing Company!  So we will be celebrating like it’s 1933!

Here’s just some of the fun we’ll be having:

-Collecting donations for the Food Bank of Larimer County

-Live music by The Sophisticats

-Food Truck by The Tramp About (with special beer recipes!)

-Special brew releases

-1930s attire encouraged 🙂

-Contests and prizes

*Please note, a “password” is required to enter our taproom during this event.  The password is to tell the doorman that you are there for “Z’s Food Drive”.

We hope you’ll come party with us!

Squash Beer, the New Pumpkin Beer

Many squash can be used in place of one another.  For example, you can make a traditional pumpkin pie without the pumpkin.  Butternut squash is a great alternative for “pumpkin” pie.  We tried this last year for Thanksgiving since we were late on planning and could not find a single pumpkin anywhere.  We certainly found plenty of butternut squash though and decided to give that a try instead.  We didn’t tell anyone that we switched the squash but nobody even noticed!  If anything, using butternut squash tasted a little better, in our opinion! So the next time you are out of luck finding the squash you need, try using another one instead.  After all, they are all a part of the same family 🙂

So, for this Autumn and Pumpkin Beer season, we decided to share the squash wealth a bit and utilize some of the other squash members that get overlooked sometimes.  Our local farm, Garden Sweet Farms (whom we also provide our spent grains to), had an amazing variety of squash this year.  We took home at least 5 different varieties and tried them all to decide which one we wanted to use for our squash beer.  There was a close tie between Delicata and Acorn, so we decided to use both!

After de-seeding and chopping the flat full of squash, we added them to the mash tun, along with amazing spices (from the local Old Town Spice Shop).  You could smell Thanksgiving dessert throughout the brewhouse and the taproom.

This brew is certainly more of “sipper”, especially since the ABV is around 8%.  So enjoy this brew carefully and joyfully.  You’ll be greeted by all sorts of fall memories while drinking this one!!

Stay tuned to our Facebook page for release date.

Cheers and Happy Fall!!

We just tapped our first Saison, on Thursday, July 24, 2014. Here are the details:

Saison 6.6%abv, 33 IBU’s

Malt: Pale, Vienna, Carahel and Special B
Hops: Pacific Jade and Cascade

This Saison is the perfect date! First you are attracted to its copper color and sophisticated marriage between hops, barley, and French Saison yeast. Then you’re greeted by a wonderful aroma of lemon, orange peel and black pepper. Hope you like to dance because flavors of goji berries and currents will be dancing in your mouth. This date might seem slightly bitter at the end, that’s from the Pacific Jade hops, but visions of a nice stroll in grassy fields hand and hand will keep you wanting more. That’s Amour!

We hope you’ll stop in and try it out!


Gnarly Barley

The next festival we will be attending is the Gnarly Barley on August 2, 2014.  We’ll have great brews on tap, merchandise for sale, coupons for our brewery, games, and more! Hope you’ll stop by our tent!
