It all started in 2008 when the gift of a home-brewing kit turned into an obsession. Eric and Jason were both engineering students at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Like many engineers they became fascinated with the scientific process of beer making. Their nerdiness and precision that was natural to both of them led to some truly excellent beer. It didn’t take long for the idea of starting a brewery to get mentioned, and the continued support of friends and family along the way kept the dream alive until it became a reality.
Jason and Eric quickly realized that in order to start a successful business they needed someone who had the sales skills that they lacked. Enter Morgan. In 2013, Morgan and Eric became next-door neighbors. Their mutual passions for beer and sharing good times with others ignited the afterburners on what would become FlyteCo Brewing in 2019. Since then, the brewery has added a coffee shop and bagel eatery, 15 more taps and a number of awards, including a silver medal for the FlyteCo Marzen Copter and bronze medal for the P-38 Pumpkin Porter at the 2021 Brewski Awards.
Coming Summer 2022: FlyteCo will be taking flight to Denver’s Central Park neighborhood, opening the second location at the recently revitalized former Stapleton International Airport Control Tower.
