Gear and Beer: Join us in Denver for an Event Celebrating Cottage-Industry Brands

There are two things all hikers unanimously adore. The first thing? Gear. The second thing? Beer. Be steady your beating but aerobically fit hearts guys, because the two have been melded into the perfect symbiotic partnership in the form of the upcoming Gear and Beer event in Denver, CO. The Trek is a proudly a media partner for this event, and we’d love to see you there. This event is FREE to the public.

Gear and Beer hosted by Forlulu Events is a festival celebrating up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the outdoor industry. There will be lots of gear to buy or demo, food trucks, music, raffles, and of course, lots and lots of cold craft beer.


Vendors include: Bedrock Sandals, Gossamer Gear, FattE Bikes, Purple Rain Adventure Skirts, Stunt Puppy, Cold Case Gear, Roofnest, Colorado Teardrop Trailers, Fourpoints Bar, Trail Threads, and more. They will all have fully stocked booths to help attendees reveling in their gear obsession.

Best of all, the event is completely and totally free. If there’s one thing hikers love more than beer and gear, it’s free things. Everyone is invited to come shop for gear, test out some gear, or try to win some gear. All while drinking beer. Isn’t that the dream?
