Our Story begins with four friends and beer enthusiasts cultivating an idea to join the exciting industry of craft beer. In 2015 Peaks N Pines opened with one mission in mind; serving great beer to great people. In a market where beer lovers have countless options for great brews along the front range, we at Peaks n Pines wanted to create a family friendly atmosphere on the northeast side of Colorado Springs where great beer is matched only by great service and experiences.
Serving great beer to great people!
