Breckenridge Brewery can't wait for Opening Day!

Restlessness. Eagerness. Anticipation. Can you feel it? We can! It's cooling down at night, and we're getting snow at higher elevations. You know what that means, right? OPENING DAY IS ALMOST HERE!

It's this time of year that we get together with our friends at Never Summer to prepare for Opening Day of the winter sports season. Opening Day isn't just a day, though; it's a living, breathing, mini-season that varies by region. It's celebrated across the country with events throughout November and into December. 

Central to Opening Day celebrations is the creation of the "Artist Series" Breckenridge Brewery Never Summer snowboard featuring local, custom artwork crafted into a high-performance all-mountain board. Denver artist Nick Hughes submitted this year's winning design. "This board's art was inspired by Colorado history, from the Old West to today," explained Hughes. "The subject bridges the gap between old and new with the way she's dressed and her personal style." 

Fourth in our series of original "Artist Series" boards, the limited-edition snowboards will be given away at many Opening Day events. 

We're officially kicking off Opening Day in Denver on Saturday, November 5th, at the Punch Bowl Social. Plan to join the party and enter to win the first of the snowboard giveaways. From 5:00 - 10:00 pm we'll be serving up Breck beer with live music from MF Ruckus. Never Summer is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and they'll be showing their new full-feature film. Be sure to check out Nick Hughes' art exhibit & play some games with friends while you're there.

So, put those golf clubs and fishing poles aside and bring out your snowboards and skis for a fresh wax courtesy of 7Twenty Boardshop. It's a free parking lot party you won't want to miss!

We're getting ready for Opening Day...are you?
