Beer That Helps Our Rivers

If you need an excuse to have a cold one, here you go: Upon his retirement, environmental engineer Tim Carlson sought a way to combine his enjoyment of a good beer with his passion for cleaner water. The result was Many Rivers Brewery, a public benefit corporation that gives 100 percent of its profits to charitable organizations working to restore and protect our rivers. Many Rivers contracts its brewing through Grand Junction’s Kannah Creek, a common practice for small craft breweries. Rocky Mountain Amber Ale is available now; an IPA and blonde ale are coming soon.
