DURANGO, CO—Ska Brewing is proud to announce that the breweries who participated in the Save The San Juans Saturday fundraiser for Fire 416 relief raised more than $28,000 for Durango’s Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF).

Save The San Juans Saturday was initiated by Ska Brewing to catalyze statewide brewery support of fire relief efforts in Durango last month. The Colorado Brewers Guild, more than 25 brewing companies, and local bars and restaurants joined the effort.

“With fifty percent of the fire contained, evacuees (including some of our employees) have returned to their homes and the National Forest is open again— but it’s not exactly business as usual,” says Ska Brewing Founder Dave Thibodeau. “Now more than ever it’s an important time to spend tourism dollars in Durango. We’ll be here with cold beer when you arrive.”

Fire relief efforts continue at Ska Brewing this month through Token Tuesdays. CERF and the Durango Food Bank are the recipients of this
month’s donations. Customers receive a token for each beer on Tuesdays, and they can choose which charity to donate their token to. At the end of the month, Ska will write a check to both organizations, $1 for every token.
