The 2013 Colorado Craft Brewers 12 month wall calendar features a different Colorado brewery each month. Through the lens of local photographer Darren Mahuron you get to see the colorful personalities behind each of these innovative and unique breweries that call Colorado home. Travel with us through the state and visit each of our 2013 “pinups”, learn about their specialty brews, recipes, a brewery farm and a brew school.
It is often said that Colorado produces world famous beer because of our great water. 5% of profits from the 2013 Colorado Craft Brewers calendar are donated to the Save the Colorado non-profit (www.savethecolorado.org). Both our farmers and our breweries depend on water from Colorado rivers. Save the Colorado works to protect the Colorado River and its watershed, from high in the Rocky Mountains all the way to the Colorado River Delta. Learn about the breweries that make up your “beer-shed” and help Save the Colorado protect our most vital asset.

Pitchfork Pinups Calendar Co.’s mission is to produce calendars for a cause. This year we have partnered with Save the Colorado to learn about how we might conserve water in Colorado and throughout the West, so communities, brewers, farmers and ecosystems all have the fresh water they require.
