In the late 1800's, German immigrant Martin Walter purchased The Pueblo Brewery for $7,000 and in the tradition of his brothers in Wisconsin established his own brewery, thus the tradition of The Walter’s Brewing Company began in Pueblo. Brewed with clean Colorado water, the company supplied brews under dozens of labels in more than 20 states and became a Pueblo legend.
In 1975 the brewery property sold and the doors of Walter’s were closed by the new owner. Fast forward to early 2014 when a group of Puebloans obtained the pre-prohibition pilsner recipe from the Walter Family descendants.
In addition to the Walter's Original, Walter's Brewery and Taproom also makes several varieties of beers every generation of drinkers will appreciate--from our great city's forebearers who labored at the steel mill and in Pueblo businesses of all types; to modern craftbeer drinkers, artists, Bohemians, and bicyclists who keep Pueblo lively today. All proof that some things never change with time and that great beer binds us all in good cheer!
