Pikes Pub: Pussy Riot beer, weekend brew fests dead ahead

Raise a glass to your inner hooligan - and help support Palmer Land Trust - today at Cerberus Brewing Co.

The Colorado Springs brewery is one of seven across the state tapping a spice-style version of Makin’ Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer, a collaboration brew and community fundraising campaign inspired by the Russian feminist punk-rock band, whose members gained international recognition - and charges of hooliganism - after a 2012 performance protesting the Russian Orthodox Church’s support of Vladimir Putin.

Launched earlier this year by a Denver-based group of beer industry professionals who wanted to put their talents to philanthropic use, the Makin’ Noise campaign has raised nearly $30,000 and expanded to breweries across the Front Range.  

At Cerberus, the fourth iteration of the brew is a Fall Belgian Witbier with grains of paradise, sweet orange peel and star anise. A dollar from the sale of each pint benefits Palmer Land Trust, which supports and protects parks and open spaces in the Front Range. For a full list of participating breweries, visit the group on Facebook.
