The first annual North gate summer block party will be held on Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1 from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Owners of The Brass Tap-Colorado Springs, Mike and Darlene Warmouth, are hosting the event with neighboring Polaris Pointe businesses: Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse & Tavern, Dog Haus, Overdrive Raceway, Boot Barn, Lillie Avenue and Magnum Shooting Center.
Wrist bands provide entrance for $10 and all associated vendors will be offering incentives, like 25 percent off all alcohol at The Brass Tap. They will also feature live music, discounted beer and a stein hoisting competition at 5:00 p.m. both evenings.
The Brass Tap will donate all the proceeds from the five participating breweries to Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention, along with a contribution of $0.25 for every Colorado pint sold April 1 through June 30. Warmouth anticipates that they have already raised more than $3,000 for the organization.
“We have been touched by this, like a lot of people have unfortunately, and this is a significant problem that needed our help,” says Mike Warmouth. “We also wanted to find someone local because everything we do here is based on giving back to the community.”
