Colorado’s First Frack Free Beer Festival is the first in a series!  This is the inauguration event for the Frack Free Beer Festival Tour across Colorado  (next one will be held Oct 26 in Grand Junction).

The Frack Free Beer Festival is meant to raise a glass to Colorado brews and the clean water that goes into them, and to raise general awareness of the impacts and risks of fracking, including the risks to Colorado water and beer.

Monies raised will go towards covering the considerable expenses of the event, providing some compensation to the fabulous musicians, and raising the money to set up the next Frack Free Beer Festival event.

Vendor booths:  $200.00   (Additional vendors being sought !     Please contact Wade to arrange for a vendor booth at wademnorris@gmail.com

Group Sponsorship:  Colorado grassroots concerned citizens groups and environmental groups are asked to make an advance donation for the event (at whatever amount  your group can afford to donate) and will be welcome to bring literature/buttons/etc  to share.  Each group is encouraged to bring their own table and chairs.   If you are far from Boulder but would like to see the Frack Free Beer Festival come to your area, make sure your group donates, to help get this tour off the ground !  Additional group sponsorships needed !   Please contact Wade to arrange donation and group sponsorship via email at wademnorris@gmail.com

Fracking and Beer?                                                                                                                                                                                                 Making beer and fracking (for oil and gas) both use a lot of water.  But the water that the frackers use becomes permanently contaminated with toxic chemicals and heavy metals and radioactive materials, and there is risk of this toxic water and the fracking process contaminating our drinking water (and beer water !) supplies.  Colorado has very limited water supplies.  With 100,000 fracking wells planned for Colorado, will the toxic air emissions make us too sick to enjoy our Colorado brews?  Will the climate change that fracking  expedites make it hard to grow barley and hops?  Will we run out of clean water to make beer?  How do we protect our Colorado natural splendors and quality of life and Colorado craft beer from fracking?  Who’s ensuring our beer security?  Colorado beer drinkers unite !
