Call to Arms Brewing Company was founded by the three fellas to the left: Jesse Brookstein, Jon Cross, and Chris Bell. Like so many friends you meet later in life, the three of us struck up a friendship while partaking in a shared passion – in this case, brewing, cellaring, and packaging beer at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, CO. And as is also the case with friends you meet as adults, we each come from fairly different backgrounds. Chris and Jesse are northeasterners, from Connecticut and upstate New York respectively, and Jon is a Coloradoan born and raised in Denver.
It’s these very backgrounds (both personally and professionally) that have shaped us into the people we are today, and with Call to Arms we plan to blend the cultures of the northeast with those of Colorado in a way that focuses strongly on a love of local, traditional food and drink to create a timeless, moody, neighborhood-friendly brewery focusing on craft beers, artisan provisions, and community awareness.
