seriously people.... ok and rafters too...

we have had a great sponsor(s) of an awesome event.

pay it back to them, we all eat out occasionally. once or twice a year (or more if ya like) go to OB, tell them thanks.

this goes for all the sponsors. let them know we appreciate their support.

Oskar blues is awesome. Some Dales invariably finds its way on virtually every multiday trip I do. Good beer in cans is clutch

Lets get real here - G'Knight is where it's at. Yeah yeah, Dale's, Mama's both good, but G'Knight and Home Grown Hops are my go to's. I go to the Longmont store just to get those and some of the other amazing beers that they have on tap. And when I'm at the store that fact the OB supports our community, and the biking community that I am also a part of, it does make a differnce in my buying decisions.

Oskars goes with Bailey fest like pepperoni goes with pizza, like white goes with rice, like drinking goes with playing loud thrash metal at 2 am and making people move their tents.

Hey, I will say that I go around preaching "the gospel" of OBs brew because of their support of this event. I have seen this event grow as a true cultural event. The sky is the limit with this thing and Oskars has been there from the beginning and hopefully will continue to recognize what a great move this has been. People from not only across the state but across the country are starting to realize what an amazing event we have here and they too will soon be preaching the Oskar's gospel.
Go Dawgs!!!

Loved having them at the Fest. Mama's little yella is one of the easiest drinking beers around. And for dessert, it's hard to beat a Ten Fidy.

Awesome event and awesome sponsor. But I can't believe no one has thrown a shout out to Old Chub yet. You gotta love the Chubbie flavors perfect and it kicks you in the butt.

I didn't really need another reason to buy OB beer since they started the canned beer revolution and Dales is one of my favorites, but their sponsorship of Baileyfest makes the decision even easier.

As a paddler I make significant effort to support sponsors of worthwhile events. We can all attest to the communities that exist inside of the paddling world, and though not always totally harmonious, we do tend to support one another. Quality businesses (ESPECIALLY BEER) included.

Would I have bought BRAND X gear anyway? Probably, but it is easier when they sponsor quality whitewater events.

but can you see its opposition | comes a-rising up sometimes | that it's dreadful and position | comes blacking in my mind | ....and then I see a darkness
