Fossil Brewing Company was founded in April 2013 in Colorado Springs, CO, by five friends who are crazy about craft beer. Our doors officially opened on October 24, 2014. In 2015, our name changed to Fossil Craft Beer Company. At Fossil Craft Beer Company, we find inspiration in our community as well as Colorado’s rich history – a history that dates all the way back to the dinosaurs.
We focus on using local vendors whenever possible and currently partner with some of the great local vendors for events at the brewery and in the surrounding area. In addition, our brew system was made locally in Colorado Springs.
We partner with local and Colorado nonprofits by hosting events and raising money for some great causes. Check out the Upcoming Events page for the latest.
Contact Us to discuss opporunities to partner with your favorite nonprofit!
In addition to our work with local nonprofits, portions of the sales from the Evolution Ale benefit a nonprofit organization every quarter. Check out the Seasonal Beers page to see which nonprofit is receiving a donation for the current generation of Evolution!
We brew all of our beers onsite using a seven barrel system that was manufactured locally in Colorado Springs.
In August 2016, we expanded our brew house by 2 new fermentation tanks and a brite tank manufactured by Alpha Brew Systems. We now have 5 fermentation tanks giving us the flexibility to create a variety of small batch, artisanal beer.
Make sure to keep an eye open for Fossil beers to start showing up at some of your favorite restaurants and bars around Colorado Springs.
We have 8 taps in the tasting room, 7 of which are our flagship and seasonal specialty beers, the 8th is our hand crafted soda that is made right here at the brewery

What's Being Said About Us
” Great beer and the science talks are very cool too!”
” This place has the best Porter I’ve ever had. The bartender was very friendly and would be there every week if we lived there! There wasn’t one beer that we tried that wasn’t good. We bought t-shirts as well and the quality has been great so far “

” We stopped in here from manitou springs to denver on a brewery hopping night. great beer! bartender was awesome. really enjoyed talking to him and another couple of customers that helped my wife and i plan our vacation. glad we stopped in here. also, happy with the 1/2 pint option! “
“The beer is great. Free popcorn is addictive, the service was amazing. One of the best places for good friendly service. It’s hard to believe I have been here over a year and just heard of it. Either way, work checking out with friends or meet friends there. The crowds there seem generally happy and the close seating proximity and dog friendly atmosphere makes for meeting people easy.”
