Battle of The RiNo Bands

  • The Rackhouse 2875 Blake Street Denver, CO, 80205 United States (map)

Watch your favorite RiNo craft beverage producers rock out in an old school battle of the bands! This year marks what we hope to be the inaugural Drink RiNo Battle of the Bands. TICKETS ARE ONLY $15 AND INCLUDE YOUR FIRST 2 BEERS! Members of the Drink RiNo collective will form bands consisting of employees of their breweries, wineries, cideries, or distilleries. Each band will have the opportunity to perform 3 songs on stage. They can play/perform any songs of their choosing, which can be either covers or originals. We will have a panel of local judges on hand to critique their performances and pick a winner. The audience will be able to get in on the judging process, as each attendee will receive a ticket to vote. The current judging panel is:
Shon Cobbs: Host of Behind The Scene Podcast, member of Plume Varia, former Sofar Denver City Leader
Braden Rauen: member of Hangman's Hymnal
Kurt Godfrey: RPM Events

The emcee for our event is Chris Rippe: Owner/Operator Rackhouse Pub

Each Drink RiNo member will be represented by a beverage of their choice, so expect a pretty awesome lineup. There will also be food available for purchase for those who would like more than just beer, cider, and wine to get through the concert. 

In addition to watching your favorite Drink RiNo members perfrom, we will be raffling off some kick-ass prizes for everyone who purchases a ticket. Some of the prizes include: Tickets to the upcoming Colorado Classic/Velorama Festival, Growlers and fills, Private Tours & tastings, Merch, and a whole lot more!
