Lone Tree Brewing Expands Footprint, Produces Top Barrelage To-Date

LONE TREE, CO— In 2021, Lone Tree Brew­ing pro­duced its high­est annu­al vol­ume of beer yet, expand­ed its mar­ket across Col­orado, and earned a pres­ti­gious Great Amer­i­can Beer Fes­ti­val® award, among many oth­er com­pa­ny mile­stones. Here is their Year in Review.


Lone Tree pro­duced more than 4,000 bar­rels of beer last year, mak­ing 2021 the sin­gle best sales year that the com­pa­ny has had to date.

For the very first time, Lone Tree canned its annu­al batch of Okto­ber­fest. The pop­u­lar­i­ty of this Ger­man-style sea­son­al lager will bring it back in cans in 2022.

Sales & Distribution 

Lone Tree announced a new dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ner­ship with Ska Dis­trib­ut­ing that brought its canned beers to the South­west cor­ner of the state— includ­ing Duran­go, Tel­luride, Ridg­way, and Ouray. Lone Tree con­tin­ues to sell beer through dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ners West­ern Dis­trib­ut­ing on Colorado’s Front Range and along I‑70, and in Kansas through World­wide Bev­er­age Group.

Lone Tree hired Doug Fenske, for­mer­ly of Bon­fire Brew­ing, to man­age sales along the I‑70 cor­ri­dor and con­tin­ue to grow the com­pa­ny’s pres­ence in Colorado’s moun­tain region. In 2021, Mex­i­can Lager’s out­side sales grew the largest, fol­lowed by Red Ale, GABF win­ner Peach Pale Ale, and IPA.


One of Lone Tree’s time-hon­ored recipes and first canned beers, Peach Pale Ale, earned a bronze medal in the Amer­i­can Fruit Beer cat­e­go­ry at the 2021 Great Amer­i­can Beer Fes­ti­val.

Com­mu­ni­ty and Events

Amid the ongo­ing pan­dem­ic, Lone Tree was proud to con­tin­ue to host char­i­ta­ble and com­mu­ni­ty events through­out the year, rais­ing funds for sev­er­al dif­fer­ent foun­da­tions and sup­port­ing many oth­ers. They donat­ed more than $10,000 and copi­ous beers toward non prof­it efforts, includ­ing Drink for Pink, The Hon­or Bell Foun­da­tion, and the first annu­al Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict Bridge Tran­si­tion Pro­gram car show.

Over the course of the year, Lone Tree also host­ed three local craft mar­kets fea­tur­ing more than 30 local craft ven­dors. They also helped facil­i­tate both Lone Tree’s Bike to Work Day and Lone Tree’s Day of Service.

In Novem­ber, the com­mu­ni­ty showed up to show the Lone Tree brew­ers their ping pong skills. Win­ners were paid in beer. They came back in Decem­ber when Lone Tree cel­e­brat­ed its 10th anniver­sary with a week­end of spe­cial tap­pings. The com­pa­ny pub­lished a sum­ma­ry of its decade in busi­ness here, includ­ing 4,000,000 cans pro­duced, 27,675 bar­rels of beer brewed, 1,705,476 pounds of grain brewed, and 36,000 pounds of hops used.

Mov­ing Forward 

Lone Tree is mov­ing into 2022 with a host of sea­son­al spring brews and a few new beers, too.

Return­ing beers include Vanil­la Caramel Amber in the cold­er months, Pineap­ple Sour to ring in spring and sum­mer, and Okto­ber­fest to cel­e­brate the sea­son with a malty Ger­man amber lager. The new Hefeweizen and Pil­sner beers are a few of the upcom­ing options Lone Tree is debut­ing in 2022. See the full 2022 beer cal­en­dar here.

Look for Lone Tree’s annu­al tra­di­tions such as the infa­mous one-day release of Hop Zom­bie, and some new ones, includ­ing the next ren­di­tion of the Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict Bridge Tran­si­tion Pro­gram car show to go live at and on Face­book in com­ing weeks and months.

Global Can shortage

During these difficult times, many obstacles have emerged and currently the brewing community is experiencing an aluminum can shortage. We at Lone Tree Brewing wanted to let our fans know that we are working hard to keep beer on the shelves. However, you may notice some of our cans will look slightly different than they typically do as we utilize cans from many irregular sources. Rest assured, the beer will remain true and we will continue to provide quality craft beer to our community.

Many cheers to our friends!
