The West Valley Island Cultural Festival is pleased to announce Independent Talk 1100 KFNX and the Grand Canyon Brewing Company (GCB) as the Orchid Sponsor of the sixth annual West Valley Island Cultural Festival

About the Grand Canyon Brewing Company
In 2006, retired Navy veteran, John Peasley purchased Cruisers Route 66 Café in Williams, AZ, on a handshake deal. After an inspiring visit to a valley brewery, John set out to bring craft beer to Williams, the goal was to build a brewery that had a “Cabin in the Woods” feel. Grand Canyon Brewing Company was subsequently built on the back of Cruisers on August 27th, 2007 and began brewing beer that spoke to the breathtaking landscapes and adventurous lifestyle of Arizona. Now, 10 years later, GCB built a 40-barrel brew house and restaurant to keep up with the statewide demand. For more information, visit
