About Horse & Dragon

A small family run operation, founded by husband and wife duo Tim & Carol Cochran, has very quickly become a Fort Collins staple since its inception in 2014. However, their passion for craft brews dates back much further – all the way to their early courtship in 1987 and a little brewpub in Mountain View, Ca. This brewery has been dreamed of and planned for since their honeymoon, in Napa Valley, Ca. where they spent every dinner at a local brewpub.  Since then they’ve spent many years traveling and sampling beers from around the world.

Even the name Horse and Dragon has its own history, combining the couple’s childhood in the western US (symbolized by the horse) with their 10 year stint in Asia (symbolized by the dragon). Final planning for Horse & Dragon Brewing Company just so happened to begin in January of 2013, the end of the Year of the Dragon, and opened to the public in May of 2014, the Year of the Horse. The name was written in the stars.

The couple, along with their Brewer Titus Bentley and with the help of their friends and family take meticulous care to ensure they are creating fresh, tasty craft beer for you to enjoy. Whether at their taproom or around town, they strive every day to operate an environmentally sustainable, approachable, and unforgettable craft beer experience.
