Lone Tree Brewing

Getting to Know You: Lone Tree Brewing Company

First published Dec 6th, 2016 by Jeremey Duvall, DFP Co-Founder

 Lone Tree Brewing Company have been huge supporters of Drink for Pink from the very beginning. In 2015, they were our biggest donors, and this past year, they helped us run not one but two events including our second annual DfP Cornhole Tournament and an amazing food and beer pairing.


What’s the origin of Lone Tree Brewing Company?

Emily: Lone Tree Brewing Company began as a dream of two but shared by many. Way back in 2011 the suburbs of Denver did not have a strong Craft Beer presence. A local tap room where neighbors could meet and share a story and a pint was hard to locate. Lone Tree Brewing Company was the first Craft Beer only tap room to open in the small town of Lone Tree, Colorado.

What’s your favorite beer and why?

Emily: Well Made! Anyone can put water, hops, yeast and malt together and call it beer but it is the well-crafted beer made by a truly passionate master that gets the vote as favorite.

If you could make any beer, what would you call it and what would it taste like?

Emily: I’d make the only beer you will ever want, and it would be called “This is IT!” It would encompass all the characteristics a truly crafted beer would contain.

Three words that describe your brewery

Emily: Community, Dependable, Welcoming

What’s next for your brewery?

Emily: There is always something going on here at LTBC. We are turning 5 in December, and having a weekend long celebration, December 8-10. In addition, we’ve got some updates to the tasting room in the works, a re-branding on the horizon, and potentially even some seasonal can offerings!

A special thank you to everyone that came to the Drink for Pink events at Lone Tree this year. Between the cornhole tournament and the (delicious) food and beer pairing, we can’t wait to be back at Lone Tree in 2017!


Building Relationships Over Time: Digging Into Our Third Annual Corn Hole Tournament at Lone Tree

First published Oct 12, 2015 by Jeremey Duvall, DFP Co-Founder

2015 was a whirlwind for Drink for Pink. We spent the first half of the year figuring out the research aspect of our charity as well as our non-profit status. Thanks to the wonderful folks at Anschutz, we were able to meet with Dr. Virginia Borges who gave us the push we needed to make Drink for Pink a reality.

As far as our non-profit status, we decided to table until 2016 by partnering with the Cancer League of Colorado, a wonderful local charity who share the same mission and vision we do. Once we knew where we wanted the money to go, it was time to start reaching out to breweries and hope somebody would give us a chance.

Enter Lone Tree Brewing Company (LTBC).

Through a bit of networking and cold emails, we were able to meet Christine who heads the charity division at LTBC. She is a fantastic person who immediately shared our passion; it was her dedication and creativity that kicked off one of our favorite annual events: The Lone Tree Corn Hole Tournament.

Since then, we have enjoyed a tremendous partnership with Lone Tree and can’t say enough good things about them. As a brewery, they always have something going besides delicious beer. From their Hop Zombie release, to weekly Brewery Bootcamps, check out their Facebook page and you will see something for every single day in the calendar.

We would be remiss to omit another huge influencer and positive factor in this relationship, Tasting Room Manager Emily Schofield. She is the steam behind all things DFP/LTBC, a tireless worker who helps us plan the Corn Hole tournament (this year we are expanding to 16 teams!) as well as other events in the past like a Beer + Chocolate pairing and a Drink for Pink Beer Dinner. In fact, just 48 hours before the beer pairing dinner at Lone Tree in 2016, our original chef backed out of the event. Emily ultimately saved the day by stepping up and finding a replacement! She also tagged along to our first ever Lab Tour for the 2015 recipient, picture proof here:

We raise a glass and thank LTBC and all of its wonderful employees for helping us make Drink for Pink a reality!
