Notes

Visited: July 9, 2002

Opened: 2001

Copper Eagle is the first brewery in my hometown since the early 1900's; hopefully, it won't be the last. Doug is serving six of his own beers and several guest beers from Spilker, Thunderhead, Gottberg, and New Belgium. They're located at the corner of Third and Sycamore in the historic old Red Rooster building, and they're for sale as of March 2003.
