This year the Brewers' Olympics benefited The House that Beer Built II, an effort by 12 NoCO breweries and several local craft-beer-centric businesses, spearheaded by Odell Brewing Company and New Belgium Brewing Company, to help FoCo's Habitat for Humanity build a house this fall for the Beavers family in FoCo. Watch for other upcoming events that enable each of us to pitch in (financially or with a hammer) to this effort! (e.g., Check out Bowling with Brewers this Thursday night -- 6/23/16 -- at Chippers Lanes (North College), and watch for our upcoming beer release, Groundwork Red IPA, the proceeds from which will go directly to the HTBBII effort).
I'm uploading our pictures below -- if you want the commentary, click on the picture to read our ever-so-accurate editorial take on the day. Suffice it to say that this day is one of the reasons we 100% love FoCo.
Despite our best efforts, we failed to bring The Torch home to H&D for another year -- it'll be residing at Fort Collins Brewery for 2016-2017. Big ups to them. We'll bring our best game next year, though, so be prepared, all y'all!
First stop is a video (borrowed from FCBeerWeek's Instagram), of our team's entrance. Backstreet Boys got nothin' on them. Or at least, they brew beer really well!
