Colorado Springs has long been a hot bed for incredible nonprofits and individuals who support them.

The brewery scene is no stranger to raising money, and we’re going to start our new monthly series Brewlanthropy in an effort to shine a light on the breweries who are giving back.

Everyone knows that Bristol does Karma hour, but did you know they’re not alone? You probably did, because you’re out there as much as we are. In the off chance you didn’t, check out these fundraising nights at local breweries and help give back as you drink your next pint. If we missed your brewery’s event, let us know and we’ll add it!
