Beer calendar: Pliny, Bligh's headline major beer releases, plus two new breweries open

Kannah Creek Brewing in Grand Junction has just released a new beer in bottles called Crossed Irons Irish Ale that it will use to help raise money for the Colorado chapter of the Terry Farrell Firefighter Fund, which helps injured or sick firefighters or the families to those were killed in the line of duty. Kannah Creek began helping firefighters in 2008 when a local firefighter, a regular at the brewpub, was diagnosed with leukemia. Crossed Irons (which refers to the tools used by firefighters) is a 5.2 percent ABV red ale with medium malt body and light hop bitterness. It will be available throughout Colorado.
