The 2018 brewfest is a benefit for the following groups:

Mancos Valley Resources is a community-based non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the cultural, historical, recreational, educational and charitable assets of the Mancos Valley. Mancos Valley Resources accomplishes its mission  by advocating, facilitating and supporting the efforts of others to meet defined needs through grants and other funding sources requiring 501(c)(3)non-profit status.

The Painted Turtle Studio has a mission to cultivate and provide a safe and inspiring space for people of all ages and walks of life to explore the world of art and their inherent creativity, curiosity, and playfulness.   They are a bridge for community and creativity in Mancos, Montezuma County and Southwestern Colorado. Committed to making art available to people across the spectrum of artistic skill levels, they offer a variety of ongoing classes and workshops, a Paint-Your-Own ceramic studio, Clay Co-Op Memberships, an art store, an ethnic arts and crafts boutique and gallery exhibitions that include the works of local artists and studio members.  They also regularly host special events, birthdays, team building activities.

Mt. Lookout Grange improves the economic well-being, social connectedness, and quality of life for agricultural producers and all in our rural community.  They believe that strong communities empower individuals to succeed and foster inter-generational collaboration and knowledge sharing.
