Mexican Lager 12-Packs, 12 Years, And A GABF Medal: Lone Tree Brewing Publishes 2023 Year In Review

LONE TREE, CO— In 2023, Lone Tree Brew­ing won a cov­et­ed GABF® medal for its best-sell­ing Mex­i­can Lager, intro­duced 12-packs of said lager to dis­tri­b­u­tion, con­tributed $4,500 to caus­es the brew­ery cares about, and cel­e­brat­ed 12 years in the Col­orado craft beer business.

Here is the 2023 Lone Tree Brew­ing Com­pa­ny Year In Review.

Beer In Review 

Lone Tree brought back its pop­u­lar Hefeweizen, Okto­ber­fest, and Vanil­la Caramel Amber in sea­son­al cans in 2023, and also intro­duced the year-round SKU Blue­ber­ry Blonde and win­ter sea­son­al Brown­ie Stout across Col­orado and Kansas. In the fall, the leg­endary Hop Zom­bie Impe­r­i­al Red IPA crept on tast­ing room taps for one day only. In the win­ter, the brew­ery intro­duced Brown­ie Stout in cans.

This year Lone Tree also intro­duced 12-packs of its flag­ship and dec­o­rat­ed Mex­i­can Lager. This beer, Lone Tree’s top sell­er, won its third Great Amer­i­can Beer Fes­ti­val® medal, a sil­ver in the Amer­i­can Light Lager cat­e­go­ry at the 2023 awards.


Lone Tree pro­duced 3,543 bar­rels of beer in 2023, using 239,000 pounds of grain and 3,600 pounds of hops. Lone Tree filled 570,048 cans last year.

Through­out the year, the brew­ery recap­tured 130,820 gal­lons of water and reused pal­let wraps that saved 400 pounds of plas­tic wrap from landfills.

Sales & Distribution 

Lone Tree sold beer across Col­orado and Kansas through long­stand­ing dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ner­ships; West­ern Dis­trib­ut­ing and Ska Brew­ing in Col­orado, and World­wide Bev­er­age Group in Kansas.

Com­mu­ni­ty and Events

Lone Tree’s phil­an­thropic con­tri­bu­tions totaled $4,500 in 2023. Among the recip­i­ents were Drink for Pink, Big Dogs Huge Paws, the Evans Schol­ar­ship Fund, Dou­glas Coun­ty Libraries, the Hon­or Bell Foun­da­tion, and the Mov­ing Moun­tains Ani­mal Res­cue. The third annu­al Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict Bridge Tran­si­tion Pro­gram & Lone Tree Brew­ing car show raised more than $12,000 that helps facil­i­tate the tran­si­tion from school to the adult world through mean­ing­ful learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties with­in the class­room and community.

In 2023, Lone Tree pre­sent­ed its annu­al mar­ket series includ­ing the Sum­mer, Okto­ber­fest and Fall Craft mar­kets; each fea­tur­ing more than 20 local craft vendors.

Excit­ing for Lone Tree Brewing’s tast­ing room cus­tomers is the instal­la­tion of a new pho­to wall that sports Lone Tree’s slo­gan, Take Root Grow Friends. Social media self­ies are encour­aged, with the hash­tag #take­root­growfriends.

In Decem­ber of 2023, Lone Tree cel­e­brat­ed 12 years in busi­ness with four spe­cial­ty beers made for the occa­sion. The brew­ery extends grat­i­tude to its friends and fam­i­ly for com­ing out to cel­e­brate anoth­er suc­cess­ful year in business.

Mov­ing Forward 

We’re always giv­ing our port­fo­lio close exam­i­na­tion to stay nim­ble in the dynam­ic Col­orado beer mar­ket­place, and we’re pleased to see con­sumer demand for styles that we love to brew the most— includ­ing lagers, fruit beer, and tra­di­tion­al Euro­pean styles,” says Lone Tree Brew­ing Sales & Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor Den­nis Stack. “We’re thrilled that our cus­tomers love Hefeweizen and Okto­ber­fest, two sea­son­als that sold out rapid­ly last year. Both of those beers will return in 2024, along with two new sea­son­al cans: Juicy IPA in spring, and build­ing upon the momen­tum of the Mex­i­can Lager cat­e­go­ry with Lime Mex­i­can Lager in summer.”

Lone Tree will cel­e­brate the grand open­ing of its sec­ond loca­tion in Park­er (at 18425 Pony Express Dri­ve) on Fri­day, March 1. After years of search­ing for anoth­er space, the com­pa­ny is thrilled to expand in 2024.
