Five Longmont breweries will be taking part in Colorado Pint Day on April 6.
More than 175 breweries across the state will be selling pint glasses April 6, with $1 from each sale donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild. This is the highest number of participants ever in Colorado Pint Day.
Longmont participants include 300 Suns Brewing, Left Hand Brewing Company, Primitive Beer, The Post Brewing Company and Wibby Brewing.
“Every year we see more interest in Colorado Pint Day and are beyond excited to have more breweries than ever participate,” Colorado Brewers Guild Executive Director Shawnee Adelson said in a release. “This will make it easier for beer lovers across the state to get their hands on this one-of-a-kind glass. We can’t wait to see the state decked out with Colorado Pint Day glasses out on April 6.”
Each participating brewery chooses how they want to celebrate Colorado Pint Day. The tradition has now seen beer drinkers going near and far to collect the one-of-a-kind limited edition Colorado Pint Day glassware.
This year’s theme celebrates Colorado Parks and Wildlife and their 125th anniversary. The design comes from Anna Long, graphic designer and marketing manager from Copper Kettle Brewing Co. and CEO of Norlo Design.
The artwork includes the tagline “Supporting Those That Keep Colorado Wild,” and draws inspiration from all of Colorado’s natural beauty, with a great horned owl representing state parks and a park ranger that overlooks the land.
“Colorado Pint Day is a great way to try a new brewery while also supporting member breweries and the Colorado Brewers Guild,” Adelson said. “Make sure to get out early because these glasses will go quickly.”
