COPPERMUSE, COLORADO -
It all started when two engineering freshman met the fall of 1988 at Colorado State University. Call it two geeks fall in love. Not only did Jason and Heather fall in love, they also developed a fondness for the excellent local beer and homebrews they created. As graduation neared they actually entertained the thought of not using their engineering degrees (to their parents' horror) and instead open a craft brewery. Ah, but cooler minds prevailed…after all Fort Collins couldn't possibly need another brewery. Boy, were they wrong!
