Charity of the Month: Hearts and Horses
Please join us at the tap room this month to help us support our community partner, Hearts and Horses. Hearts and Horses works to promote the physical, cognitive, emotional and social well-being of people with special needs through equine-assisted therapy.
The power of connection between rider and animal creates a fundamental change in the patient. While riding, participants must constantly make postural adjustments to maintain their balance, which in turn increases their overall balance, orientation and body awareness. Other benefits include improved muscle tone, posture, range of motion, flexibility, social skills and emotional well being. In addition, horses provide a non-judgmental relationship, accepting individuals for who they are regardless of physical, emotional or social abilities.
Learn more about Hearts and Horses and how you can contribute.
Tip Jar: Hope House
Our committee has chosen Hope House as the July Tip Jar Partner. This important non-profit represents a too-often overlooked demographic in our greater Denver community: young mothers fighting for the health and sustainability of their families. The team at Hope House has thoughtfully crafted self-sufficiency programs that are tailored to each individual client through programs like their Mentoring Program and GED classes. They address the issue of homelessness through a Residential Program providing a stable place to begin the break from the cycle of poverty.
When you visit our tap room, please be sure to leave your change in the tip jar to help create change for these aspiring young mothers!

Charity of the Month: The Growing Project
9 years ago, a young woman working on her Masters Degree at CSU approached us with an idea: what if we were able to provide healthy, sustainable food for impoverished people living in “food deserts.” Food deserts are defined as parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and healthy food providers. The Growing Project was aspiring to provide Fort Collins the perfect way to endow our community with fresh produce and help insure healthy soil systems which lead to a healthy watershed, and beer made from the best water! We are so proud that we were able to contribute the first ever monetary donation to this amazing agency and have supported its success ever since.
The Growing Project has achieved a permanent home out at Hope Farms and continues to engage our community by utilizing property to grow healthy food, free farmers’ markets/stands to distribute the food to those in need, classes on agriculture and education for food preparation.
On Tuesday, May 2nd, we will host a fundraiser in our tap room for The Growing Project. Please join us at 7:00pm and learn from the farmers, gardeners and committed TGP fans what this group is really all about!
TIP JAR: The FoCo Cafe
Following the lead of Brad and Libby of the SAME Cafe in Denver, Jeff and Kathleen have created FoCo Cafe for Fort Collins: a space to serve food to folks from every walk of life where they feel like they belong, the food, albeit healthy and delicious, almost feels secondary to the ambience in the FoCo Cafe. As a patron, you are given the opportunity to pay what you can, volunteer to be fed or pay it forward (paying what you think is a fair price for your lunch and contributing a little extra for those in need. The food is fresh and tasty, sourced as locally as possible and most is provided through donations from local farmers, The Food Coop, Sprouts and Wholefoods. Through Jeff’s creative touch, he turns these piece-meal offerings into delicious fare not to be missed! On the BEST days, you can even find 90 Shilling Green Chile and at one point he made a cheddar soup with our Loose Leaf, Session Ale; YUM! Please join them for the most pleasant meal in town at 225 Maple Street.
