Going Ape for Wynkoop Beer

The good folks of the Wynkoop Brewing Company, as well as its six related saloons, have launched an extensive fundraising effort to assist Africa's endangered mountain gorillas.

From now through October, when the annual Gorilla Run goes ape in downtown Denver, the Wynkoop and its allied establishments -- Gaetano's, the Cherry Cricket and Pearl Street Grill among them -- will be serving Silverback Porter, a richly roasted smoked porter. And 25 percent of all sales of the beer will be donated to the Denver-based Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund.

The campaign also includes a drawing to send two people to Africa to see these gorillas, which the late Dian Fossey made so famous.
