For the second year in a row, the Jefferson County Library Foundation is celebrating beer and books.

“We’re thrilled to be able to do this and raise money for the Jefferson County Library Foundation,” said Jo Schantz, the foundation’s executive director. “Tax dollars only go so far. We fill in that gap of funding.”

The foundation supports Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs, summer reading and early childhood literacy at all the Jefferson County Public Libraries.

The self-guided Stouts & Stories, Ales and Tales beer tour takes place Sept. 28-Nov. 11. How it works is participants pick up a free passport from any of the 10 Jefferson County Public Libraries or at any of the four Jeffco Westerra Credit Union branch locations. Then, visit the 12 participating breweries, all local to Jefferson County, to receive stamps after a purchase. Prizes for stamps can be redeemed at Westerra Credit Union. Participants are asked to document their brewery visits on social media to enter to win a prize at the end of the tour — make a public post or Facebook or Instagram with #JCLFonTap.

A kick-off party for Stouts & Stories, Ales and Tales took place Sept. 27 at the Steel Affairs Automotive Gallery at the Lamar Street Center in Arvada. The event featured craft breweries participating in the tour, live music, games and beer talks by the brewers themselves.
