“This is so Colorado,” I overheard a particularly disheveled flannel-clad man say as he took another swig of his Upslope Craft Lager and let out a huge yell for The Motet who just kicked off the opening song of the night.

To celebrate Outdoor Retailer taking place in our home state of Colorado for the first time last week, we threw a big ol’ bash at The Ogden Theater, and invited some of our favorite Colorado-based companies and industry folks to celebrate with us. The Motet provided the funky tunes, Upslope Brewing Company brews were flowing at the bar, and we raised $2,250 for Big City Mountaineers.

Jam bands, craft beer, innovation, collaboration and do-goodery… I guess that is about as Colorado as it gets.
