The founders of Denver’s Spangalang Brewery have started a special “buy one, get one free” offer for all K-12 teachers and school staff. Now through the end of August 2016, school faculty that present their valid school ID when ordering a beer at Spangalang Brewery’s tasting room will receive a complimentary second beer.
“Teachers and school staff do some of life’s most important work,” says Spangalang co-founder Taylor Rees. “Yet they are underpaid and don’t get the community support they deserve. With our Back to School Beer Special, we’re honoring their efforts by treating them to a few great beers to start off the year.”
“We have parents who are educators and a couple of us have wives in education,” says Spangalang co-founder Darren Boyd. “So, we’ve seen firsthand how hard they work and how tough their jobs can be.”
“We also know that while teachers appreciate apples and pencils, what many of them really like is a good craft beer,” Boyd adds. “A delicious no-charge Spangalang beer is a great way to say ‘thanks’ to a hard-working educator.”
Spangalang Brewery is located at 2736 Welton Street in Denver. It was founded in April 2015 by former Great Divide Brewery brewers Taylor Rees, Austin Wiley and Darren Boyd. The brewery crafts world-class beer for locals and celebrates the past and present culture of its historic Five Points neighborhood.
Spangalang earned numerous “best new brewery of 2015” honors and several other honors in its first year. Its beers have also won significant accolades, including gold medals at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival and the 2016 World Beer Cup for the brewery’s Belgian-style table beer, Sugarfoot.
