The story of The Colorado Farm Brewery began …
over 80 years ago when Ray Coody (Cody) settled his young family in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado. He hoped to create a sustainable living for his wife and two young sons, Billy and Bobby. He broke the barren soil and planted the seed that is now The Colorado Farm Brewery. Four generations later, his grandson and great-grandsons own and operate Colorado Malting Company and now The Colorado Farm Brewery on the same property where Ray homesteaded. In the tradition of their forbearer, Wayne, Jason & Josh have harvested the seed that Ray planted 80 years ago, creating a brewery unlike anything else in the world. Come experience the brewing renaissance!
“Colorado Farm Brewery in Alamosa, Colo., takes farm-to-tap to a new level as the only brewery in the world where every ingredient in its estate beers comes from the farm in which they brew.”

“ ‘We’re making estate beers,’ Mr. Cody said. As the head brewer, he uses the farm’s hops, grain, well water and a yeast strain native to the property.”

BARREL AGED RYE
In returning to the roots of ales and spirits, this beer captures the heart of craft. Brewed 20 meters from the field that gave life to the rye for both the whiskey that saturated the aging barrels and the grist of the decadent brew, this beer exists as a world-wide one of a kind. The grain bill contains 100% estate grains, grown in sight of the brewhouse and taproom. The hops came to life on the walls and fences of the property, hand-picked for use in this beer. Boasting the best of both craft beer and craft whiskey, this unfiltered delight brings the fruits of the earth to the delight of the palate. The hue reflects rye in the ripest month of late August, light gold embraces a hint of amber. IBU’s lye low to make way for the magnificent marriage of rye to barley, and beer to whiskey. A culmination of the work of many hands, years of aging, plows, combines, brew kettles, stills, coopers, and friends, this beer holds the full brewing and distilling experience in each sip.
Enjoy slowly, responsibly, and fondly.
This is the taste of our home.
