A new brewpup is hoping to open in the Spring. Yampa Valley Brewing Company is based in Hayden and hopes to open the Barrel Cathedral at 576 Yampa Avenue in Craig. The business owners have to get a petition signed, as part of the regulatory process in Craig. It’s what they have to do when an establishment is looking to get a liquor license and they haven’t had one there before. The new Barrel Cathedral plans to focus on community and families, also serving food and having music. In addition to craft beer, they’ll also hope to make some home-made root beer.

Beka Warren has been recognized by the board at Memorial Regional Hospital, because she is retiring. They honored Warren at their meeting recently for her years of service to Craig and Moffat County, as a medical professional, deputy coroner, and community leader.

Get ready for more snow, and some very chilly temperatures in the Yampa Valley. Snow should start falling tonight with heavy snow tomorrow morning. Then it will be getting very cold at night, with the coldest temperatures Friday night, when it could be minus 10 degrees.

It is the day after Christmas. For those who are un-decorating their tree, you can recycle it. The Christmas Tree Recycling program starts today in the parking lot at Howelsen Ice Arena in Steamboat Springs.
