Signed by the Artist- Stampede Hand Printed SerigraphAvery Brewing Co Gear Shop
The University of Colorado Boulder has partnered with Avery Brewing and an incredible artist to share the spirit and tradition of “Ralphie” with the Buffalo community. Reaching speeds of 25 miles an hour, Ralphie is best known for leading the football team onto Folsom Field on game day. The Ralphie Program has been funded exclusively since 1966 through donations, which covers expenses for feeding, care, maintenance and travel as well as equipment for handlers.
This hand-printed serigraph that is signed by the artist, supports our university in a way that promotes art, culture and alumni. Half of all proceeds from sales will help fund the Ralphie Program.
Avery Brewery represents enthusiastic curators of all things beer with 25 years of experience delivering fan favorites and bold innovations to curious beer lovers. Close neighbors and longtime friends, Avery Brewery employs many CU graduates and students. With so many connections to the university, the compassionate team of Avery brewers have brought the spirit of “Ralphie” to life through Stampede-a crisp, clean Colorado Gold Lager at 4.5% ABV. A symbol of “Buff” pride, Stampede is available on draft, in 15-packs, and in 6-packs across Colorado, available at Folsom Field, the CU events center and bars and liquor stores across Colorado.
