Thrivers beer from Distillery of the Year now available

-A A +A

Three Rivers Brewery — recipient of the coveted 2018 Distillery of the Year Award from the New Mexico Restaurant Association — is celebrating the culture and community of Farmington with a beer named Thrivers.

Dubbed the “taste of Farmington,” the American Amber Lager is a delicious way to get a taste of the area, and the beer’s name derives from a combination of Farmington’s branding and the Three Rivers name.

“Farmington is known as the place where outdoor lovers and active families ‘thrive,’ and this is illustrated in what we see every day,” said John Silva, co-owner of Three Rivers Brewery. “In Farmington, we have a culture of hard work, outdoor activity, and fun. Whether you live and work in Farmington, or you’re just visiting, you’re likely working up an appetite during the day. We wanted to create a beer that could be enjoyed after a hard day’s work or a hard day’s play in our incredible outdoor areas.”

Known for its nearby national park sites, hiking, biking, kayaking, water sports, off-roading and fishing, Farmington is a hotspot for adventure seekers, outdoor enthusiasts and active families. The tight-knit community is also rich with history and culture.

Opened in 1997, Three Rivers is located in the Andrews Building, which originally housed the Farmington Drug Store and the newspaper.

With a strong history in Farmington, Three Rivers started out as a standalone brewery, and has grown significantly.

The business currently owns most of a block of historic downtown Farmington with businesses including a game and taproom, pizzeria and distillery.

“Our commitment has always been to preserving the history and culture of the area,” added Silva. “With Thrivers, we’re thrilled to be serving up a taste of that history and culture, as well as a taste of the community we love. Thrivers will be available throughout the year, so whether you’re visiting or you call Farmington ‘home,’ we’d love for you to try our community-inspired brew.”
