Girls Rock Denver at the Oriental Theater!

Denver, Colorado is home to many fantastic organizations, providing opportunity for all walks of our every growing life, here in the shadow of the Rockies. One particular organization stands out in their relentless pursuit of creating “rock stars” from young ladies.

“Girls Rock Denver seeks to empower young women and girls by putting instruments in their hands and unveiling what they already possess in their feet, fingertips, vocal cords, hearts, and minds.” –Girls Rock Denver, Vision Statement

And rock they do! 13 newly formed bands of empowered young women rocked a sold-out Oriental Theater, playing original works to adoring and shrieking fans. On this hot August Saturday afternoon these girls rocked Denver! It was an amazing and impressive showing.

The Girls Rock Denver program occurs annual and is offered only one week. Demand is high and potential rockers must complete an application and personal essay to be considered for participation. Once enrolled, the week is jam-packed with exercises, drills and lots of practice. The finale, of course, is the showcase concert.

The volunteer non-profit organization annually plans, raises money and selects the lucky few that get to experience this week-long journey to rock-stardom. To learn more bout this fantastic group of individuals visit their website or, better yet, join the crew for some delicious craft-beer and fundraising at Ratio Beerworks.

Time to party! Ratio Beerworks turns 1.

A lot can happen in a year. A milestone in the timeline of new business, the one-year-mark is reason to celebrate. Ratio Beerworks, located in Denver’s RHINO District, embraced this milestone with vigor and created an amazing Anniversary Weekend. Perhaps aided by an opening date that falls on Valentine’s Day, it was evident that there is much love for one of the hottest new breweries, not only in Denver but the entire U.S as well.

The weekend featured a packed schedule of entertainment, local food trucks and of course finely crafted and tasty beer. Limited releases of new brews brought happy crowds throughout the sun-drenched weekend. The events wound up Sunday with a special “Hangover Firkin” and Valentine’s Day brunch.

Pushing the hype was recent national recognition for this yearling brewery. Already a favorite of local craft-beer enthusiasts, Ratio Beerworks was named as one of the nations top 33 new breweries by the Beer Advocate, as well as one of the best new breweries in America by Thrillist. An honor for sure and as Brewmaster Jason says,” The beer is the core….”

Congratulations on the first year and here’s to many more to come.
