The Mish riverside venue and sister company Chipper's Lanes Entertainment venues (830 North in Fort Collins, 2454 West in Greeley, and 100 Nickel in Broomfield) and Fieldnotes Organic Vodka and Gin are proud to announce a new partnership bringing these 4 music venues and craft distillery, La Crosse Distilling Co. together to support musicians. Wisconsin-based La Crosse Distilling Co. distributes their organic spirits throughout the state of Colorado including their flagship brands Fieldnotes Vodka, Fieldnotes Gin, Downtown Toodeloo Rock and Rye, Robber's Straight Rye Whiskey and more.

La Crosse Distilling Co. will donate a portion of the proceeds of each bottle of Fieldnotes Vodka and Fieldnotes Gin sold to all Chipper's Lanes locations to Black Fret Colorado, a non-profit organization supporting local musicians. To launch the partnership, La Crosse Distilling Co. has pledged an initial $2,000 donation to the Colorado chapter of Black Fret, an artist granting organization that Mishawaka/Chipper's Lanes owner Dani Grant is assisting in its launch in Colorado.

Co-founder and co-owner of La Crosse Distilling Co., Chad Staehly, lived and performed music on the Front Rage of Colorado and beyond for twenty-five years before moving back to Wisconsin. Staehly mentions, "When we started the distillery, we wanted to focus on pairing our organic spirits with the music world, and specifically I was hoping we'd be able to partner up with some of the great music venues in Colorado. Mishawaka Amphitheatre and Chipper's Lanes music venues have been such a big part of the northern Colorado music scene. We're honored to be partnered with them to serve our spirits and to be able to give something back to the musicians who make these venues come alive."

Mishawaka Amphitheatre owner, Dani Grant, shares, “We're so excited to work with a company that shares a passion for music to represent our venues. La Crosse Distilling Co. not only supports our production quality but also the local musicians that play our stages across the Front Range.  It's a powerful partnership.”

Downtown Toodeloo Rock and Rye, an organic flavored whiskey crafted by La Crosse Distilling Co., will be a concert sponsor and will present select shows in the 2022 season, including two nights of Leftover Salmon on the first weekend of July.
