“First Ever State-Wide Colorado Craft Beer Calendar Produced By Fort Collins Based Pitchfork Pinups Calendar Company—On Sale Now ”
Pitchfork Pinups Calendar Company has produced the first, full color wall calendar that celebrates Colorado’s unique craft beer industry. The calendar features fine art photography of 12 award-winning Colorado breweries.
The 2013 “Colorado Craft Brewers” calendar provides a unique showcase for Colorado craft brewers with beautiful art photography and graphic design. Each month of the calendar features one brewery, a distinctive craft beer, recipe or special event and information about the brewery. Proceeds from the calendar go to Save the Colorado River Foundation ( www.savethecolorado.org ) because exceptional Colorado beer begins with pure water.
Karla Baise, Community Outreach Coordinator at Odell Brewing Company, one of the featured breweries, believes the calendar will help celebrate the Colorado craft beer industry’s culture of collaboration. Baise says, “The Colorado Brewers Calendar has connected us with our industry peers to celebrate our commonality and illustrate the diversity of our artistry. The calendars, with their fun images, are a great representation of Colorado’s unique and collaborative culture. They allow us the opportunity to model our pride in our region at our desks and in our kitchens!”
The breweries featured in the calendar are: Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont and Lyons), Great Divide Brewing Co. (Denver), Odell Brewing Company (Fort Collins), New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins), Strange Brewing Company (Denver), Pug Ryans Steakhouse and Brewery (Dillon), Bristol Brewing Company (Colorado Springs), Ska Brewing (Durango), Golden City Brewery (Golden), Pagosa Springs Brewing Company (Pagosa Springs) and Colorado Boy Pub and Brewery (Golden). Photography for the calendar was provided by Darren Mahuron of Summit Studios, featured in Entrepreneur magazine, The Denver Post and The Fort Collins Coloradoan.
