RAND JUNCTION, CO (June 14, 2016)   Kannah Creek Brewing Company announces partnership with Many Rivers Brewing Company to contract brew at Kannah Creek’s production facility located at 905 Struthers Avenue Grand Junction, CO.

Many Rivers Brewing Company is a Colorado public benefit corporation giving all beer sales’ profits to organizations who work to improve rivers.  Tim Carlson, Many Rivers’ President has worked over the past 15 years with watershed groups throughout the West and is the driving force behind this venture.

“Since we love rivers, why can’t we do something like make really good beer and then give all the profits away to communities and organizations that do great river work, such as the Colorado Riverfront Foundation,” states Carlson. “So that’s what we are doing.”

Kannah Creek’s brewers will work with Many Rivers to develop their flagship amber ale recipe.  This beer will be brewed in 60 barrel batches approximately every four to five weeks totaling 600 barrels for the first year.  Many Rivers will offer this flagship beer for the first year throughout Colorado with eventual expansion into other markets such as Arizona.

“Stacy Beaugh, the Tamarisk Coalition’s Executive Director introduced us to Tim a little over a year ago,” states Kannah Creek Brewing Company Marketing Coordinator, Katlin Birdsall. “I hadn’t heard of any other breweries participating in a collaboration as innovative as this and thought it was a perfect opportunity for Kannah Creek to help provide a continual revenue stream to aide in river conservation.”

Many Rivers Brewing is currently applying for state and federal liquor licenses, which take approximately three months to secure. Once these liquor licenses are granted brewing can begin with the first batch anticipated for early fall.
