Who says the holidays around Colorado Springs have to be celebrated in December?
The Gazette's Empty Stocking Fund will release "Blackberry Paws," a beer flavor created in a partnership with Fieldhouse Brewing Company and Jon Eddy Productions, at 719 Brewfest from 5 to 9 p.m. on July 19 at Weidner Field.
The brew will be available for $5 a pint, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go back to ESF.
Prior to the release, Fieldhouse is giving a preview of the beer at noon Thursday. The Gazette will show the event on Facebook Live.
"Blackberry Paws" will be produced, canned and sold later around Christmas time at the Fieldhouse Brewing Company taproom and by its distributors. Some of the proceeds will go back to ESF.
