Here at Denverspeax, we have always been drawn to people who are passionate. We recently had the opportunity to interview one of the most passionate breweries in town: Black Shirt Brewing (BSB). Our first visit to Black Shirt Brewing was on the Slow Roll Pub Crawl a few weeks back. We really enjoyed the beer and vibe in the short time we spent there, and wanted to experience more. We were given the opportunity to sit down and explore the mind of Chad Miller CEO and co-founder of Black Shirt Brewing.  Continue reading

Not sure if you recall, but DenverSpeax did a special feature on the She Devils roughly one year ago (see article here). Since then, they have organized even MORE rides and are looking at additional community involvement as far as bike classes for women, and other special events. Stay tuned for more on those fun events later… it’s time to promote!

It costs money to enter races. It costs money to get to races. Let’s be honest, every aspect costs money! And, with being such a new group to Denver, the She Devils have to fundraise a TON in order to be able to make these things happen.

 

They need the Denver community’s support – YOUR support!

This Friday, August 29th, 2014, the She Devils will hold their annual Babes in Bikeland fundraising event at Denver Bicycle Cafe. Come on down for the food, beer, and festivities including an auction, give-aways, and raffle. Just like last year, it’s sure to be a heck of a good time. All of the fun starts at 7 pm, so make sure you head down early, mingle, and grab a spot. Hope to see all of your bright, shining faces there!

Brews with your fave comrades at Comrade Brewing

Although there’s no proven science (yet) stating that fermented barley boosts muscle growth, we sure do feel the positive affects of a nice, craft brew after a long bike ride (check out Bicycling.com‘s top picks for Post-Ride Brews).

Bike riding and craft brews go hand-in-hand here in Denver, and it’s no wonder Colorado is ranked 3rd on the list of 10 Best Craft Brew States in America (USA TODAY – 10 best craft brew states in America).

After heading south from Denver on the Cherry Creek Trail via bikes this past holiday weekend, a group of us checked out Comrade Brewing at 7667 E Iliff Ave, a couple blocks west of the trail. Continue reading
