(Monument, CO) – Pikes Peak Brewing Co. is very proud to have been chosen to brew the Local 5 beer again in 2013. This “Pale Ale with a purpose” is brewed with and for the members of the Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Association IAFF Local 5.
The proceeds from the sale of Local 5 Pale Ale assist the Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters with arranging travel for Local 5 members to attend the funerals of our heroes who have lost their lives in the line of duty across the nation. As host for the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial in Colorado Springs, the Local 5 welcome firefighters from around the country each fall for a celebration of this ultimate sacrifice and service.
“We are pleased (about) our continued partnership with our dedicated friends at the Pikes Peak Brewing Company. “ says Jeremy Kroto, Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters Association IAFF Local 5 President. “We cannot thank Chris and the family at Pikes Peak Brewing Company enough for their tremendous dedication to assisting their local fire fighters with this solemn duty.” says Kroto.
“We began canning our Elephant Rock IPA back in June, and have seen such success, we decided that the Local 5 Pale Ale could really benefit from the exposure we can get by having our cans out in local liquor stores. So, with the help of some local firefighters, we will can 260 cases of this community brew on September 13,” says Chris Wright, Founder and Head Brewer at Pikes Peak Brewing Co.
Cans of the Local 5 Pale Ale will be available in the taproom on September 13 and in local liquor stores shortly after. Pikes Peak Brewing Company’s Monument taproom will have a local celebration of the release, complete with the Tucson firefighters Pipe and Drum Corps during Monument Beer Week on September 18 at 6:30pm.
