“We are excited to partner with Pikes Peak Brewing Company to promote the protection of the Greenback Cutthroat Trout.” Said CMCTU’s President, Erik Heikkenen. “The Greenback is 1 of 4 native trout species historical[ly] found in Colorado. We’re trying to raise and broaden public awareness of this threatened native species found right here in the Pikes Peak Region.”
A small portion of water was taken from Bear Creek River, the Greenback Trout’s natural habitat, and was added to the boil of the beer. The beer is named Bear Creek Porter and a portion of all proceeds will be donated and used to help protect the trout and their habitat.

On another note, I thought I’d use this opportunity to announce that Pikes Peak Brewing will also be contributing to Beers Made By Walking. The last four beers from BMBW will be made at the brewery so that they are official commercial products. The first four beers were brewed through Rocky Mountain Brewery. We are grateful to both breweries for the generosity and time. More information to come soon.
