The first ever Vegan Drinks Denver was a great big success, and we are grateful for all the wonderful people that showed up to talk about what they're working on, or just hang out and drink delicious beer from Denver Beer Co. And speaking of Denver Beer, thanks a zillion to them for making room for us in the brew area when we showed up and there was standing room only in the bar. (We put a big sign in the main doorway, but I heard that a few people couldn't find us, and I'm sorry for that! Next time, be sure to ask the bartenders where we are.) Also, thanks to Jill at the Examiner for the glowing review!
We also had some great prizes to give away. Here's more about the folks that provided them:
- Five Points Fermentation Company is a new, Denver-based food company that produces super tasty raw, vegan kraut, with ingredients sourced from Colorado farms. Their Soulkraut is to die for, and the Currykraut is killer for those that like a little bit of heat. In the near future, you should be able to find their products at Marczyk and Truffle Cheese Shop. Restuaranteurs should contact them directly for bulk orders.
- Chocolate Spokes Bike Studio is a new full service, community oriented bike shop in Denver's Five Points neighborhood. In addition to building custom frames and offering bike repair and maintenance services, Chocolate Spokes sells locally made chocolate (much of it vegan), and plant-based bike maintenance products.
- Denver Seitan Company is a CSA style wheat meat service! When you buy a membership, you can arrange to pick up your seitan at a Cap Hill or Wash Park location. Their seitan is really good, so go ahead and get a multi-month membership.

(And PS: Don't forget about tomorrow's Neat Market at the Leon Gallery! This is your chance to stock up on hard-to-find vegan food items, and support local vegan vendors.)
