There are about 3 dozen great craft breweries in Colorado Springs, but there's nothing on the southeast side (Security-Widefield/Fountain area). That's about to change with the arrival of Peaks N Pines in Fountain.
It may not look like much now, but the property at 212 W. Illinois Ave in Fountain, Colorado will soon be home to Peaks n Pines second location. The first is located at 4005 Tutt Blvd in Colorado Springs.
Peaks N Pines serves dinner as well as drinks. The new location will actually serve as the primary brewing site. The 10BBL brewhouse will have 20BBL fermenting capabilities. It's being constructed now, by Forgeworks of Ridgeway, Colorado.
Craft Breweries and tap houses are increasingly serving as neighborhood gathering places. Peaks N Pines aims to serve as a community focal point as well. The new location will feature a 1200 square foot taproom, 450 square foot events room and an 800 square foot pet-friendly patio. They hope to be open for business in late Spring or early Summer.
In the meantime, you can preview their brews at the Tutt Blvd location. They're open from noon to 10pm Monday through Thursday, noon to midnight Friday and Saturday and from noon to 9pm Sunday.

Note to all you other brewmasters out there. Security-Widefield still needs a brewery. Thanks to Peaks N Pines for stepping up and getting the party started.
