Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery, the burgeoning microbrewery in the Ballpark Neighborhood, is joining forces with Sleep Tight Colorado tonight to celebrate the local organization's fourth anniversary. Sleep Tight Colorado is dedicated to providing the homeless with sleeping bags and support, and to date it's donated over 1,000 sleeping bags to the homeless and vulnerable. For every beer sold today at Jagged Mountain, $1 will go to Sleep Tight. Then starting at 6:30, the group will celebrate its Fourth Anniversary with appetizers, drinks and a silent auction. The event is free, but donations are suggested.
