Craft Organizations Support Safe Streets Month in Denver This December

Industry leaders express their concern for getting everyone home safely during the holidays.

Denver, CO, December 08, 2019 --( We all know that the holidays are a time to celebrate with our friends and family. We also know that sometimes we get carried away and have a little too much. The Safe Streets Initiative is working to bring the community together to make a stand against driving while impaired.

This community outreach has brought together three industry leaders who feel that it is important to contribute to keeping our streets safe.

Safe Streets Initiative is excited to announce that Colorado Brewers Guild, Colorado Distillers Guild and The Colorado Association for Viticulture and Enology (CAVE) have decided to join their efforts to support Safe Streets Month this December in Denver, Colorado.

Meagan Miller, president of Colorado Distillers Guild states, "It is a great opportunity for the Colorado Distillers Guild to be a part of Safe Streets Month. This is something very close to my heart, so we are absolutely on board."

With nearly 700 deaths caused by impaired driving in 2016 during the week between Christmas and New Year’s alone, it is a community effort to reduce these numbers.

Cassidee Shull, executive director of the Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) says Safe Streets Month is a wonderful initiative and is proud to be a partner. "Our organization and membership are committed to safety and this time of year is no different, we want to ensure everyone is celebrating with their loved ones safely and responsibly this season."

“The lives and safety of the patrons of breweries is just as important to us as the brewers themselves. We are happy to support Safe Streets Month in Denver in an effort to get folks home safe,” says Shawnee Adelson, executive director of Colorado Brewers Guild.

Safe Streets Month in Denver will run the month of December. It is a collaborative effort to reduce the number of crashes caused by impaired driving. These leaders in the alcohol industry made a big impact by showing their support for the effort.
