Coopersmith's Pub and Brewing
The oldest pub-brewery in Fort Collins, Coopersmith's has rich history with the community and the craft beer culture of the town. Although Fort Collins has over 15 breweries today, at the time of Coopersmith's creation in 1989, Fort Collins only had six breweries. The pub is named after the founder, Scott Smith's, son Cooper. Scott sold off a majority of his ownership in 2014 to long time employees, keeping the rich tradition of the venue alive.
