No one from Faricy Boys was available to speak to the CSBJ.
From its website: “We truly care about our customers and want them to walk away happy for years to come. We’re always willing to help, whether it’s jeep-buying advice, or real-life suggestions about making a trade-in. Every driver deserves the wave of satisfaction that comes with getting behind the wheel of a perfect-fitting car. Our staff aims to do that every time by being attentive, passionate, knowledgeable, and open-minded. We’re certain that auto shoppers will drive away from The Faricy Boys smiling!”

What sets Bristol apart from its competitors?
“Our business model is based on the community, doing what’s best for the community as a whole. That’s what sets us apart from the rest of the breweries in Colorado Springs and in the state. We set aside a part of our budget to donate to nonprofits. Called our Karma Hour, we donated $1 per pint sold during the hour to a specific nonprofit. We also participate in fundraising. Our goal is to be an active part of the community, to work to make it a better place to live.” — Kristen Olson, former minister of community and director of events
