Behind the Brew
The story of Loveland Aleworks starts with Nick Callaway, the owner, founder and head brewer. While in school at the University of Northern Colorado, Nick began home brewing on his back porch and joined the Brewnion Colony, a home-brew club where he developed many of his brewing recipes.
In 2006, Nick installed and commissioned Crabtree Brewing Company’s brewing system at their original location in Greeley, Colorado. This experience filled him with a desire to open his own craft brewery. In 2012, he made this dream a reality and opened Loveland Aleworks in downtown Loveland, Colorado.
Nick Callaway leads with the mentality of brewing “simple, honest beer.” He utilizes his home brewing background and many years of experience to create a range of beers inspired by traditional European and American craft beer styles. It is important to Nick that the Loveland Aleworks beers are both consistent and great-tasting.

Molly's Staff Thoughts - Grant's Pick
“If you had heard of the feijoa fruit before now, then you are smarter than me. A very rare sighting of a South American fruit here in Colorado allow the tropical notes of this fruit to blend perfectly with the tartness of this barrel aged sour.”
