Cofounders Lee and Emily Cleghorn met in Manitou Springs, CO back in 2009 when they were both serving in the Army, Lee as a Special Forces Green Beret and Emily as a Military Intelligence Officer. Brewing and snowboarding were their two main outlets from the stresses of military life. After multiple deployments, they decided it was time to fuse their love of mountains with their love of craft beer and Outer Range was born. Outer Range Brewing Co. is focused on brewing the great styles of craft beer that inspire them, and they strive to be a place and source of inspiration for the people that choose to leave the life below.
