Kannah Creek Brewing Supports Colorado Firefighters With Crossed Irons Ale

Help our first responders
by Carrie Dow on Mar 21, 2016 in Beer

As Colorado heads into wildfire season, perhaps we should take some time to remember those who fight the fires that our state seems to have every year. For the third year in a row, Kannah Creek Brewing Company in Grand Junction is offering Crossed Irons Irish Ale throughout Colorado. A portion of the seasonal beer’s sales will go to the Terry Farrell Firefighter Fund – Colorado Chapter to help our firefighters who are injured or sick, their families, and small volunteer departments with little funding. All of the money raised by this chapter stays in Colorado.

“Since its inception in 2011, the Colorado Chapter of the TFFF has been able to donate well over $100,000 to Colorado Firefighters and their families for medical needs, education, tools and equipment,” says Board Member Doug Lee. “All funds raised by the Colorado Chapter stay in Colorado to help our local firefighters. Without the generous support of companies like Kannah Creek we would be unable to fulfill the numerous requests for assistance received throughout the year.”

Kannah Creek began helping Colorado firefighters in 2008 when a local firefighter, a regular at the brewpub, was diagnosed with leukemia. The owners changed the name of a seasonal beer, then known as Monument Red, to Crossed Irons Irish Ale. Crossed Irons refers to a fireman’s hand tools; the Flathead Axe and the Halligan Bar. A portion of the seasonal’s sales were directed to the firefighter and his family. Kannah Creek has donated $2,058 to the TFFF-CO over the last two years.

The Crossed Irons Irish Ale is a traditional red ale with medium malt body and a light hoppiness at 30 IBU. With an ABV of 5.2%, it is easy to enjoy this spring seasonal with friends. You can find the Crossed Irons in six-packs or on draft at bars and restaurants throughout Colorado.

So raise a glass and help out Colorado firefighters. Slainte!
