Our History

Colin and Shannon Westcott started Hops and Berries in the fall of 2005, with a lot of help from their son, (then 15 months old) Elias. Having recently moved to Fort Collins, they were shocked to find there was no home brew and wine supply store. So, rather than sit idly by, they took it upon themselves to start one.

The Westcotts moved to Fort Collins in October from Anchorage, AK with their 13 month old son Elias. In Alaska, Colin brewed for Midnight Sun Brewing Co. Shannon was a project manager for a Web development company. Colin has nine years of commercial brewing experience.  He started home brewing at the age of 19 after taking his father’s equipment. Over the past several years, Shannon has absorbed a vast knowledge about the brewing process. Eventually, the two began making mead and wine at home also. As a result, both have a lot of knowledge that they’re very willing to share.
