Red Leg Brewing Company’s Multiplex Is Open

It’s hard to tell what’s dreamier, all the craft beer and local foods — or those panoramic Westside views.

The Colorado Springs beer-iverse is expanding in a big way. It’s been a long time coming, but Red Leg Brewing Company’s multiplex is now open, bringing vast new patio and rooftop deck space for sipping your favorite sudsy brew with panoramic Westside views. The 2.5-acre complex also features shipping containers that house micro-restaurants and other local businesses in an open-air shopping and dining area called the Garrison. 

“To my knowledge, what we’re doing has not been done before in our community. We are a local business that is opening the first purpose-built brewery in the city from the ground up that will also support other local businesses and artists in the same complex,” said Todd Baldwin, president and founder of Red Leg Brewing Company, in a press release. “While Red Leg has been operational in this community for nearly a decade, this is an expansion that we are beyond excited to bring to the Springs and an opportunity to showcase other amazing local businesses and entertainers in The Garrison area as our community partners.”

At the center of the complex is a 14,000-square-foot airplane hangar-style facility that includes a taproom with 20 beers on tap as well as wine and cider selections and a scenic rooftop deck and bar. A year-round outdoor beer garden strung with hanging lights includes an outdoor stage for live music and a turf area for yoga events or games, such as corn hole. 

The Garrison is expected to be fully operational by fall 2021 with a lineup of local businesses including Nekter Juice, Criterium Bicycles, Sasquatch Cookies, Oliver’s Deli, PH Burger Bunker Bar by Public House, TacoQ by the Warehouse, and Red Leg Wine and Spirits. 

The new facility will also house Red Leg’s brewing operations, allowing them to produce 341,000 gallons of craft beer annually—that’s 22,000 kegs or 151,580 cases. The veteran-owned brewery will continue featuring its flagship beers like the Howitzer Amber Ale, Hazy IPA, Prospector’s Pick Kolsch and Helo Hefeweizen, plus seasonals and specials such as Space Force One Double Hazy IPA and our favoritely-named Disturbing Tan Lines Pineapple Mango Wheat.

“While we will continue to ship our beer to military installations across the country, this new location and expansion is going to provide locals and visitors a prime destination where they can stop-in for a refreshing beer, enjoy live entertainment, savor delicious food and relax in a welcoming atmosphere with some amazing views,” Baldwin says.

You can find the new Red Leg Brewing Company at 2323 Garden of the Gods Road and redlegbrewing.com.
