Bristol Brewing Company launches 12-pack fundraising beers
COLORADO, COLO SPRINGS. – Bristol Brewing Company will launch its 12 benefit beer pack on Thursday, October 14. The beer pack will include three different beers, each dedicated to three local nonprofits.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the 12-pack will be donated to the respective non-profit association. So far, the brewery has raised around $ 750,000 over the past 13 years for the trio.
Bristol’s âGive Back Mix Packâ, the first of its kind, includes:
Pumpkin Ale, enjoying Venetucci Farm (launched in 2007)
After a COVID hiatus in 2020, Venetucci Pumpkin Ale is back. Located on the southwestern edge of Colorado Springs, the historic 190-acre farm was established by the Venetucci family in 1936. Nick and Bambi Venetucci donated thousands of pumpkins to area school children each fall, a tradition that continues today. Eager to perpetuate the property as a community legacy, the Venetucci have conserved it and donated it to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. This year the pumpkins are from Smith Farms at Rocky Ford. All beer profits will go to the historic Venetucci Farm, supporting several landscaping projects needed to preserve the character of the historic property. Today, Gather Mountain Blooms, a micro-flower farm operated by three sisters, manages the property and honors the Venetucci legacy.
This pumpkin ale is smooth and malty with lush pumpkin and spice undertones.
Smoked Porter, benefiting the Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts (launched in 2008)
Created in 1992, Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts pursued his vision of fostering creativity, innovation and collaboration in the Pikes Peak region. In 2001, the association created the Uncle Wilber fountain for the city and continues to support its maintenance.
In porter style, this smoky mahogany-hued porter is a richly roasted and rewarding beverage. A clever combination of smoked malts on peat and beech wood adds an ever so slightly smoky character to the finish.
PiÃ±on Nut Brown Ale, enjoying Friends of Cheyenne Canyon (launched in 2007)
North Cheyenne Canon Park is a 1,320-acre regional park that includes the Starsmore Discovery Center, Helen Hunt Falls, and miles of hiking and biking trails. Profits help the organization preserve and protect the park’s natural, scenic and historic resources.
From its subtle nutty undertones to its prominent malt profile, this dark piÃ±on nut beer is hearty, yet quite accessible.
âLocal nonprofits are the heart of our community,â said Mike Bristol, owner of Bristol Brewing Company. âWe’re excited to bundle a Brewer’s Bounty of Goodness into a 12-pack on-the-go, giving every member of the community the opportunity to give and swallow. Bristol is proud to give back to those who make our community shine.
