Veteran-owned breweries, including Lost Friend Brewing Co.
The Colorado Springs area is home to more than 30 breweries, and most of them have more than beer-making in common. Well more than half are veteran-owned and/or have brewers who are active or former military, which should come as no surprise given the number of bases in the Springs and the appeal of craft among both entrepreneurs and consumers. One of the city's newest entries, Lost Friend Brewing Co., hews true to that trend, and ? like most of its fellows in the industry ? hosts fundraising events benefiting the local veterans community and the nonprofit groups that support it.
