Biz briefs: Broken Compass teams up with Lone Tree to fight cancer

Breckenridge’s Broken Compass Brewing is collaborating with Lone Tree Brewing Company to create a new beer — CancerBlows Coffee IPA — for the annual Brews for CancerBlows dinner at the Lone Tree brewery on Friday.

In addition to the new beer, the event is to feature five beer-paired courses crafted by chef Paul Worley, private tours of the brewery and live music by the H2 Big Band and trumpet players from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Proceeds will benefit CancerBlows and The Ryan Anthony Foundation.

To create the new beer, Kenyan Thaita AA roast from Denver’s Boxcar Coffee was added to the CancerBlows Coffee IPA after fermentation. According to the brewery, the beer comes with a light grain bill — comprised of two-row malt, biscuit malt, crystal malt and oats — which makes for bold and juicy Mosaic hop additions and lightly roasted, fruit-forward coffee. Lactose is added for a coffee-and-cream mouthfeel.

Tickets for the beer dinner are $70. Buy them at For more info, email Emily Hutto at
