The Wyoming Weed and Pest Council, along with the Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild, is excited to partner again on a fun initiative to help inform the public about invasive weeds and pests. During the second annual Wyoming Craft Beer Week from June 11 – June 18, participating breweries will release a collaboration brew called “WY So Sour” and a limited-edition pint glass sponsored by Wyoming Weed and Pest Council. Beer enthusiasts can find both the beer and glass in brewery taprooms starting on June 14.
“Protecting and preserving the natural resources in Wyoming is very important to our members,” said Michelle Forster, executive director of Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild. “We wanted to partner with the Wyoming Weed and Pest Council again to raise awareness of the threat of invasive species to our beautiful state.”
Invasive weeds and pests cost the U.S. an estimated $40 billion annually in damages to trees, plants, crops and related management efforts. They can threaten Wyoming’s economy, food supply, environment and, in some cases, public health. The Wyoming Weed and Pest Council is committed to stopping the spread through awareness, education and community engagement.
“We want to thank the Wyoming Craft Brewers Guild for supporting our mission to keep Wyoming wild and beautiful,” said Larry Smith, president of Wyoming Weed and Pest Council. “We’re excited to collaborate with them for this fun and creative platform that shares our message.”
