Rockyard Canning 2018 Blue Ale for ZPIII Memorial Softball Tournament

Rockyard Canning 2018 Blue Ale for ZPIII Memorial Softball Tournament

CASTLE ROCK, CO — Today Rockyard Brewing canned a limited run of its 2018 Blue Ale, brewed in honor of the first annual ZPIII Memorial Softball Tournament. This tournament, slated for September 9, was organized to honor and memorialize Douglas County’s fallen officers.

Rockyard Brewing collaborated with Douglas County, Adams County, and El Paso County’s sheriff’s offices to craft the Blue Ale, a Kristalweisse with added blueberries, for the ZPIII Memorial Softball Tournament. Blue Ale weighs in at a sessionable 5.2% ABV. This fruit-forward beer has traditional Hefeweizen flavors of banana and clove.

Blue Ale is a refreshing reminder of the sacrifices that law enforcement officers make each day. It will be available in cans only at the tournament, with proceeds supporting the Douglas County Fallen Officers Fund. The beer will tap at Rockyard’s tasting room the first week of September, and will only be available while supplies last.
