Pre-Festival Brewery Event
Yampa Valley Brewing Company (YVBC) is partnering with Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition (CCCC) to offer a special event at their brewery in Hayden, CO on Sunday, August 26 from 2 – 5 p.m. The event celebrates the upcoming Yampa Valley Crane Festival and the launching of YVBC’s fabulous Sandhill Crane Red ale in cans, previously only available on tap. Each can of Sandhill Crane Red features the Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition logo and the special slogan “Celebrating Colorado Crane Conservation.” YVBC will be donating a portion of their revenues from the sale of the Sandhill Crane Red cans to CCCC to benefit the cranes and the Yampa Valley Crane Festival. Volunteers from CCCC will be on site during the event to provide information about our Greater Sandhill Cranes and the upcoming Yampa Valley Crane Festival.
The event will feature all kinds of activities for kids and families including crane face painting, crane cookie decorating, crane coloring, a crane calling contest for kids and adults (with prizes), a crane film, and other bird and crane games. Commemorative glassware will be available for purchase as will children’s beverages and food offered by the Grit Girls including a special dish in honor of the cranes. Don’t miss this fantastic pre-Yampa Valley Crane Festival celebration!
