Beers Made By Walking public Hike

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO THE WALDO CANYON FIRE!

The BMBW program began last year in Colorado Springs and we wanted to make sure that this year we paid tribute to our beginnings. We have invited eight local homebrewers to come along on two separate hikes and make beers inspired by the edible plants we find along the trails. The hikes this year will be at North Cheyenne Canon Park in Colorado Springs and the Palmer Lake Reservoir trail in Palmer Lake. Each hike is public and will host four brewers, it will be fascinating to see how different each beer is even though it was inspired by the same hike. The eight beers will be brewed communally at Pikes Peak Brewing Co. in Monument in July. The beers will be served at the brewery in September, and again during Monument Beer Week in late October. One of the beers will be selected and re-brewed by PPBC brewer Chris Wright for the larger Colorado Beers Made By Walking series that will take place in Denver in October.

The first hike is June 30th at 10am at North Cheyenne Canon in Colorado Springs. It should last 2-3 hours and should be a moderate difficulty level. There are only 10 spots so make sure to reserve your place.

The second is July 1st at 10am. The hike will be to Palmer Lake Reservoirs. Moderate difficulty of 5+ miles. There are only 10 spots so make sure to reserve your place.
