Acting as a mike stand so Sheree Beddingfield and crew can thank the crowd at Salida Brew on May 16, 2019.

Salida Soup celebrated 4 years of micro-granting success with the first soup-less Soup at Soulcraft Brewing on May 16. Dubbed “Salida Brew”, Salida Soup 48 welcomed three great presenters and an enthusiastic and hungry crowd to the hometown brewery HQ on Highway 50. Due to the Colorado Creative Industries summit being held at the SteamPlant facility, the Soup had to find a new, temporary home for its fourth anniversary. Eric and the gang at Soulcraft were willing to give it a shot - and it was a great success!

Presenting for the Soup pot that night were the Youth Disc Golf Tournament group, folks from the Chipeta Rising project looking for funds for the Mountain Heritage Park on Tenderfoot, and A Church stumping for their Summer Youth Programs. Amidst a giant spread of hot and cold bar snacks and tasty beers, the sizeable crowd listened and voted - in the end, choosing A Church as the winner of the second-highest Soup pot ever.

Thanks again to Soulcraft Brewing - we’d love to do it again soon!
