FATE BREW­ING WILL LEAVE BOUL­DER FOR NEARBY CITIES

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS - — An­thony Hahn, Daily Cam­era

Boul­der-based Fate Brew­ing’s ex­pan­sion plans in­clude a new brew­pub in Louisville’s Colorado Tech Cen­ter and a restau­rant in Lafayette.

The move comes as the com­pany puts its brew­ing space — Avery Brew­ing’s for­mer ware­houses at 5763 Ara­pa­hoe Blvd. — back on the mar­ket. The de­ci­sion was made af­ter com­pany of­fi­cials ceded to fed­eral li­cens­ing is­sues, ac­cord­ing to spokes­woman Alyssa Lund­gren.

The ware­houses made it too dif­fi­cult for fed­eral li­cens­ing au­thor­i­ties to ap­prove plans for a man­u­fac­tur­ing brew­ery cou­pled with a brew­pub on the same site, Lund­gren said, adding that Fate tried un­suc­cess­fully to solve the prob­lem by switch­ing its brew­pub li­cense to a man­u­fac­tur­ing li­cense.

Now, the com­pany has leased a 15,000-square-foot build­ing in Louisville’s Colorado Tech Cen­ter — an in­dus­trial hub typ­i­cally re­served for space-race in­no­va­tion and largescale man­u­fac­tur­ing — where it plans to open a larger brew­ing space to fill the com­pany’s pro­duc­tion needs and a small restau­rant.

“The goal for the Louisville space is pro­duc­tion,” Lund­gren said. “More beer is al­ways good.”

The open­ing could come as early as late 2017.
