Grand Junction’s Kannah Creek brews now available for purchase in bottles
After almost a decade of visionary planning, Kannah Creek Brewing Company is finally selling its bottled beer throughout the Grand Junction area.
“We’ve been in business eight years this October, and the owners had this idea to be in bottles even before then,” Kannah Creek Spokeswoman Katlin Lubeley said. “We came from a seven-barrel to a 30-barrel facility, and now we’re distributing our beer in bottles. That’s pretty awesome!”
Kannah Creek began brewing and bottling its beer at a new facility built next to the Colorado River earlier this summer. Its new tasting room and restaurant — Edgewater Tap & Grill — opened on the same site in mid-May.
Currently, the local micro-brew business is self-distributing its Lands End Amber and Standing Wave Pale in bottles around Grand Junction. Bottled beer can be purchased at Fisher’s Liquor barn, Andy’s Liquor, College Liquor, Country Club on Horizon Drive, and Crossroad Wine & Spirit. Lubeley also noted that Kannah’s bottled beer will soon be carried at Bookcliff Liquors and Pete’s House of Spirits.
“Fisher’s and Andy’s are the only two carrying the 12-packs, but I know more are interested,” Lubeley said. “Each liquor store sets its own pricing, but we are hoping most of our 6-packs will sell for around $8.99.”
Kannah Creek Brewing Company owners are additionally exploring regional distribution options, and they hope to expand their reach to stores across the state by the end of the summer.
As of now, Kannah Creek serves seven types of beer as menu mainstays at both the Seventh Street and Struthers Avenue locations. Other special beers rotate on tap as they become available. Though only two beer flavors — Lands End Amber and Standing Wave Pale — are being bottled, Lubeley said brewers will likely bottle a seasonal beer, too, around Christmas.
