Two Arizona businesses, THAT Brewery and Pin Drop Travel Trailers, have teamed up to help preserve the Verde River.
Verde Valley, Arizona - Two northern Arizona businesses, THAT Brewery and Pin Drop Travel Trailers, are collaborating on a project to raise awareness around Verde River conservation and to promote river sustainability. Both businesses are current champions of Arizona’s natural resource stewardship in a variety of ways. Furthering their efforts, the business pair will be raffling off a one-of-a-kind Pin Drop Travel Trailer Road Runner model highlighting THAT Brewery’s signature Strawberry Blonde Ale. All net profits will be donated to Friends of the Verde River.
“We are excited to partner with Pin Drop Travel Trailers to benefit Friends of the Verde River,” said Tamara Morken, co-owner of THAT. “We love everything outdoors so the Verde River is near and dear to us. THAT Strawberry Blonde is a great beer for outdoor gatherings, and will be a great feature ale for this effort.”
How It Works
Buy a raffle ticket, and be entered to win the ultimate adventure package including a fully loaded Pin Drop Travel Trailer Road Runner model, specially wrapped with THAT’s Strawberry Blonde iconic image, and additional adventure gear and accessories including a Canyon Cooler fully stocked with THAT Beer. The trailer and total adventure package is valued at ~$32,000. Only 400 tickets will be sold at $100 each. The winning raffle ticket will be selected at the 13th Annual Strong Beer Festival in February 2023 or when all 400 tickets have been sold.
Proceeds to Benefit Friends of the Verde
All net proceeds from the adventure package raffle will be awarded to the Friends of the Verde River, a registered 501c3 non profit organization. Friends of the Verde River focuses on restoring habitat, sustaining river flows, and building supportive communities. They proactively engage in a combination of “boots-on-the-ground” projects and policy solutions guided by sound conservation principles.
“Friends of the Verde River is honored to be working with these two fine businesses,” said Nancy Steele, Executive Director of Friends of the Verde River. “Their commitment to the work we do here at Friends is truly gratifying.”
Being one of the last free flowing rivers in Arizona, sustaining the Verde River is critical for the region and the state of Arizona. Friends of the Verde River will be dedicating the funds raised to help keep the river clean and flowing, to increasing healthy habitat for wildlife, and to connecting communities to the Verde River.
“Having grown up on the East Verde near Payson and now raising my daughters on the Verde River in Cottonwood, it is important to me that this free flowing stream is protected for generations,” said Tim Elinski, founder and owner of Pin Drop Travel Trailers. “We have built sustainability into Pin Drop’s core values and into our business model from day one, so this raffle is a perfect fit to broaden our reach in this space.”

The winning raffle ticket owner will receive a one-of-a-kind wrapped Pin Drop Travel Trailer Road Runner Model including the branded trestle span roof rack and ARB Awning, and a Canyon Cooler stocked with THAT beer.
