Lone Tree Brewing Reports Production And Philanthropic Impact In 2022 Year In Review

LONE TREE, CO— In 2022, Lone Tree Brew­ing main­tained its com­mu­ni­ty com­mit­ments with the pro­duc­tion of both fan-favorite and inno­v­a­tive new beers, and more than $20,000 donat­ed to phil­an­thropic ini­tia­tives. Here is their Year in Review.


Lone Tree pro­duced 3,923 bar­rels of beer in 2022. 248,772 pounds of grain and 3,541 pounds of hops went into these recipes, which yield­ed 3,566 kegs of beer on draft and 567,120 cans.

Through­out the year, the brew­ery was able to recap­ture 111,600 gal­lons of water and reuse pal­let wraps that saved 350 pounds of plas­tic wrap.

Lone Tree Hefeweizen, a tast­ing room favorite-turned-sea­son­al, hit cans for the first time in the spring of 2022. In the fall, the famed Vanil­la Caramel Amber returned for its sixth sea­son in cans.

Sales & Distribution 

Lone Tree con­tin­ued to sell beer across Col­orado through dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ners West­ern Dis­trib­ut­ing and Ska Brew­ing, and in Kansas through World­wide Bev­er­age Group.

On Hal­loween, the cult-fol­lowed Hop Zom­bie Impe­r­i­al Red IPA escaped from the brew­ery in lim­it­ed quan­ti­ties after sell­ing out in a mat­ter of hours at the brewery.

Com­mu­ni­ty and Events

Lone Tree donat­ed more than $8,300 and many beers toward non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tions in 2022, includ­ing Drink for Pink, Big Dogs Huge Paws, the Evans Schol­ar­ship Fund, the Hon­or Bell Foun­da­tion, World Cen­tral Kitchen, and the Mov­ing Moun­tains Ani­mal Rescue.

The brew­ery was proud to bring back the sec­ond annu­al Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict Bridge Tran­si­tion Pro­gram & Lone Tree Brew­ing car show, which raised more than $12,000. Lone Tree is also grate­ful for the six stu­dent interns from this pro­gram who help with dai­ly tasks to keep the brew­ery in good work­ing order.

Addi­tion­al­ly, Lone Tree par­tic­i­pat­ed in Dou­glas Coun­ty Library Brew Tours that raised funds and aware­ness for the Dou­glas Coun­ty Libraries.

Over the course of the year, Lone Tree also host­ed four local craft mar­kets fea­tur­ing 50 craft ven­dors; three dog adop­tion events with Big Dogs Huge Paws; a Hal­loween dog cos­tume con­test with 40 adorable pups in atten­dance; a Father’s Day Pig Roast with a 90-pound hog cooked by Hes­h­er BBQ Cater­ing; and its annu­al sal­sa and gua­camole con­test at which 30 con­tes­tants showed off their skills.

It’s worth not­ing that in 2022 Lone Tree Brew­ing staff achieved two hole-in-one shots at the Com­mon­ground Golf Course in Auro­ra, Col­orado— both on the same day dur­ing a fundrais­er for the Col­orado Golf Association’s cad­dy pro­gram that Lone Tree Co-Own­er Jer­ry Siote par­tic­i­pat­ed in as a kid.

In Decem­ber when Lone Tree cel­e­brat­ed its 11th anniver­sary in com­mu­ni­ty with their staff and many brew­ery reg­u­lars. “We are hon­ored that our com­mu­ni­ty choos­es us again and again, remind­ing us that we wouldn’t be here with­out them,” says Lone Tree Founder and Co-Own­er John Win­ter. “We’re com­mit­ted to con­tin­ue serv­ing com­pelling, qual­i­ty beers that help us do good out­side of the brewery.”

Mov­ing Forward 

In 2023, Lone Tree has an excit­ing line­up of canned sea­son­als planned: Hefeweizen will return in spring; sum­mer will reveal a brand new Hon­ey Cream Ale; fall sta­ples Okto­ber­fest and Vanil­la Caramel Amber aren’t going any­where; and win­ter will bring anoth­er new beer, Brown­ie Stout, to the mix. Stay tuned for release dates.

The brew team has plans for exper­i­men­tal, small batch­es that will be served in the tast­ing room only; and is active­ly explor­ing new prod­ucts beyond beer, too. “2022 rein­forced the impor­tance of stay­ing rel­e­vant for the long haul,” says Siote. “Our cus­tomers demand a high stan­dard of con­sis­ten­cy and qual­i­ty from us, so we take that very seri­ous­ly.  When it gets this com­pet­i­tive along with all the oth­er obsta­cles to grow and keep mar­ket share, the mar­gin of error shrinks that much more. We love the chal­lenge, and we know we have the goods to back it up.”

Many events will enliv­en Lone Tree’s tast­ing room this year, start­ing with the Hearts & Hops Sock Hop with Swingin’ Den­ver and local band Last Call Romance. The brew­ery plans to host many return­ing favorites, such as its local craft mar­kets, the third annu­al Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict Bridge Tran­si­tion Pro­gram & Lone Tree Brew­ing car show, and anoth­er Drink For Pink fundrais­er, among many oth­er activities.
