Colo. Blood Drive Offers Free Beer

October 27, 2003

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) _ Sounds like a fair trade: blood for beer. United Blood Services of Durango, Colo., held an unusual blood drive this weekend.

Donors got a free pint of beer for a pint of blood. Four area breweries took part in the promotion.

People from the blood bank got into the spirit of the season, by dressing in Halloween costumes including vampires.

There was a little more at stake for the brewers than just civic pride. The owner of the brewery that collected the least amount of blood will get a makeover today: hair dyed blood red.
