Raise a Glass for Wildlife at Four Peaks Next Month

The Phoenix area's Four Peaks Brewing Company and the Rio Salado Audubon Center are teaming up to raise awareness of two bird species.

Tapping Into Conservation consists of two one-month campaigns at Four Peaks locations in Tempe and Scottsdale. The summer campaign begins this Saturday, August 1, while the winter campaign's start date has yet to be determined.

The summer campaign aims to teach people about the Western yellow-billed cuckoo, which has lost 90 percent of its habitat along Western rivers. In winter, the campaign will focus on the sandhill crane (pictured). For each event, Four Peaks will make available a special single-tank brew, and on hand will be materials for visitors to learn about the animals and how to get involved in protecting them.

A kickoff party for the summer campaign will be Saturday, August 1, at the Audubon Center in Phoenix. There, Four Peaks will tap the first keg of its single-tank Western Rivers Ale. Food trucks and local musical acts will be on hand. And admission is free, but you have to RSVP to [email protected].
