Ignite Denver 10 – VOTE

The submissions for Ignite Denver 10 are incredible. But don’t take my word on it. Go over to the voting site and get your vote on!

These are only a portion of the overall submissions. We’ve got an awesome line up of GABF presenters as well as the great Denver crowd you’re voting on. It’s gonna be an awesome night. Hope you bought your ticket. They’re going fast!

Ignite Denver 10 – BEER

You’ve seen the tweets, you’ve heard the hype…

It’s all true.

Ignite Denver 10, GABF is gonna be off the hook. Yes I said, it was cool back then it’s cool now!

We’ve got some really awesome submissions from both Denverites who want to share their knowledge and passion with us, and folks from the Brewers Association (the list is here). This will be a great Ignite Denver.

To celebrate GABF and all it means to Denver and us the beer drinking masses, Ignite Denver is moving downtown. We’ll be at the Sherman St. Event Center! An awesome space right downtown, not far from the capital and 16th St mall shuttle.

Tickets go on sale Friday at noon. There’s 300 tickets and if you think waiting until the week before Ignite is a good idea, you’ll be very sad. Get yours now!

It wouldn’t be a GABF Ignite Denver if we didn’t have craft beer on hand. We’ve got beer from Ska Brewing, Great Divide Brewery and Renegade Brewing, plus maybe 1 or 2 more we’ll reveal later. Beer tickets will be on sale onsite for $5 so you can enjoy these awesome local brews. You can also buy a $10 ticket that includes 2 tickets. (Do the math. Ignite Denver is $5. The other $5 gets you two beers, which will be $5 each onsite. Two beers for the price of one. Booya!)

See you in September!

Ignite Denver 8 – It’s about Charity

If you joined us for Ignite Dnever 6 at the Rack House, you know that as part of Global Ignite Week, we give all proceeds to a local charity.

This year we’ve selected SOS Outreach as the charity we’ll be supporting!

From their about page:

SOS Outreach was founded in 1993 in Colorado’s Vail Valley. As a nonprofit organization, our programs build character and self-esteem in youth through outdoor activities and the SOS curriculum. SOS served 5,190 youth across the nation in 2009-2010 and offered 18,553 total program days.
SOS Outreach began as the “Snowboard Outreach Society,” before expanding to include skiing. This past winter, we began snowshoeing and telemark skiing programs as well. In January, we merged with Meet the Wilderness, which has served a similar demographic with outdoor sports since 1974. The merger means SOS Outreach is now a year-round, perennial organization that – in addition to snow sports – now includes activities like rock climbing, teams courses, hiking and camping.

Your ticket purchase goes towards making sure we’ve got beer (and maybe even some wine), as well as goodies for speed round prizes!

See you in February!
