Beer Man

We toast Prost, Freshcraft and Todd Alström in this week's beer calendar

Peaches aren't the only Western Slope product heading east over the mountains these days. Kannah Creek Brewing in Grand Junction has just begun distributing two of its bottled beers, Lands End Amber and Standing Wave Pale Ale, to Denver for the first time. Eventually Republic National Distributing will help Kannah Creek sell the beer, in six-packs, twelve-packs and kegs, all over the Front Range. The eight-year-old brewery recently opened a second brewery and bottling facility, Edgewater Brewery, in Grand Junction. It houses a thirty-barrel brewhouse and a bottling line.
