Biodiversity, Bluegrass, and Brews

Date: 
September 26, 2018 5:00pm to 8:00pm

The Global Biodiversity Center is hosting its 1st annual 'Biodiversity, Bluegrass, and Brews' event on September 26, 2018 from 5-8pm on the back patio of Avogadro's Number. This event is a way to create further awareness across the Colorado State University and Fort Collins communities of the efforts of the GBC and the work that CSU conservation scientists are conducting around the globe, while also bringing to light important conservation issues. Entry into the event is $15 (cash only!) and will allow attendees a chance to enjoy the get out of your seat and dance, local bluegrass music of Lineage (http://www.lineageband.com/), while sipping on three limited time only brews from a keepsake commemorative tulip glass. The GBC is teaming up with Intersect, Maxline, and Zwei Breweries to create three conservation-themed brews. This year the brews will honor: 1. The Boreal Toad, a Colorado endangered species, with a berry Gose named 'BeetleJuice'; 2. The reintroduction of the Gray Wolf back into their native Colorado range with a North German Pilsner named 'Howla Back'; and 3. The Tropical Andes region of South America, which the World Wildlife Federation lists as one of the most diverse and endangered ecoregions in the world, with a spiced ale named 'Arroz con Leche'. All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the mission of the GBC.
