New Beer For Paddle Fest
The Eddyine Brewery started a new beer today to raise funds and awareness for BuenaVista's long running and super successful special event, PaddleFest.
Eddyline Brewing Company had a beer in mind which was started today at the brewery by owner and operator of Eddyline, Mic Haynekap, and with volunteer help from Jenn Fisher, the event organizer for Paddle Fest. They spent time together going over the recipe and how beer is made in a micro brew environment. It is going to be a light and refreshing, and easy to enjoy pilsner style beer.
The name will be Boater Beer, to celebrate the character of the Arkansas River Valley, which has been shaped by boaters (or people who paddle) since the 1950's. It will be available at the Eddyline, and in several local and regional establishments and will be canned into 16 oz. "to go" cans in their new state of the art facility . Boater Beer will also be privately labeled as Paddle Fest Pilsner in the spring to help aid in the promotion of Paddle Fest in Buena Vista which occurs every Memorial Day Weekend.
"Paddle Fest is honored to have our local brewery making a specialty beer that will not only publicize this great event, but it will also promote the town of Buena Vista and our paddling resources that we have here to the many beer enthusiasts of the western US." Earl Richmond, Owner of Colorado Kayk Supply and Paddle Fest planner.
