Today, on the #COVirtualHeritageJourney, take a tour of the craft brewing scene in Fort Collins and learn how you can support your favorite brewers by purchasing the Colorado Strong Pale Ale!

Our local breweries are an integral part of the Northern Colorado culture and heritage. Many of these breweries rely on the Poudre River to brew their beer. A healthy river = a healthy brewing economy! And, lots of happy beer drinkers too. Please support craft brewers by sharing this video, drinking local, and purchasing Colorado Strong Pale Ale.

Colorado Strong Pale Ale is a benefit beer made with Colorado ingredients by Colorado breweries to support the local supply chain, small independent breweries, and raise funds for the Colorado Strong Fund to provide aid in response to the impacts of Covid-19 across Colorado.

The Colorado Brewers Guild and the Left Hand Brewing Foundation, have partnered with the Ball Corporation, On Tap Credit Union, StickerGiant, Root Shoot Malting, Colorado Hop Company, and Shirts On Tap. 20% of all sales of Colorado Strong Pale Ale will return to the Colorado Strong Fund and will be allocated directly to provide assistance to healthcare, hospitality, service industry, and gig economy workers across the state.

By purchasing a growler, crowler, or 6-pack of Colorado Strong Pale Ale from your local brewery you not only provide a charitable contribution, but help your favorite brewery to make payroll, keep the tasting room open, and most importantly, keep brewing delicious beers for years to come!
