In 2016, what started as a conversation among close friends turned into reality. The group had a common passion with a shared set of values to create balanced brews, community engagement, and adventure.
Goat Patch offers a variety of brews from pale ales, IPAs, porters, and stouts. They don't offer more than small bites; however, they do host a daily food truck to tempt your taste buds and they also welcome you to bring in outside food.
Even if you're not a huge beer drinker, supporting Goat Patch Brewing Co is well worth the occasional brew because you aren't only supporting a local business but, you are supporting the community. Goat Patch chooses two non-profits a year to host the It Takes A Tribe Initiative giving money back to the non-profit.
Another way they give back to the community is their Bleating Heart Night, which takes place every Tuesday night when they proudly sponsor a local community organization that is making changes to the Colorado Springs community. During the evening, representatives from the organization will provide customers with more information about what their organization is about. Goat Patch will donate $1 from every pint, growler, and cooler to the featured organization.
