Our family runs Big B’s Juices, Hard Ciders & Delicious Orchards in the heart of the majestic North Fork Valley of Colorado. This tiny mountain valley with high elevation, crisp, thin air, Rocky Mountain water, cold nights and warm days produces some of the finest fruits in the world. Big B’s produces a full line of ORGANIC and LOCAL apple juices and hard ciders from organic Western Slope fruit.
Delicious Orchards, the home of Big B’s Juices and Hard Ciders, has a beautiful farm store with great local organic products, a café serving delicious food made from local ingredients, a camp ground nestled in the orchard with views of the surrounding mountains, and guests can come by and hand pick organic cherries, pears, peaches, and apples. Delicious Orchards and Big B’s are proud to support local sustainable agricultural and land stewardship.
Tim and Tommy Thwaites, brothers from America’s coffee heartland, left the Seattle area in search of adventure and prosperity. They took different paths but reconnected in Denver, Colorado. Over the years they had acquired a significant amount of experience in the specialty coffee industry. They have studied all facets of coffee from the origin characteristics of green coffees, to the art of roasting, through drink preparation and retail interface. As young entrepreneurs with a combined 22 years industry experience, they partnered with Tom Sr. to develop Coda Coffee Company. The mission is simple: to set the standard for coffee excellence through education, advocacy, and partnerships. With the belief that success is reciprocal, Coda will do what it takes to exceed expectations.
Founded in 1922, Shamrock Farms is one of the largest family-owned and operated dairies in the U.S. They produce and distribute a full line of dairy products, including fresh milk, sour cream, cottage cheese, whipping cream, half and half and more. And since their family farm is home to our very own herd of more than 10,000 cows, they thought it only appropriate to feature one of those bovine beauties as their official spokescow – Roxie – on their packaging.
Opened in 2008 in Denver, Colorado, The Infinite Monkey Theorem started as an urban winery operated by a mad scientist working out of a back alley in Denver. They continue to buy the best grapes and make ridiculously good wine. When the winery opened, they decided to focus on the variables that really mattered: using the best grapes, harvesting them at their peak, nurturing each batch of juice as it became their wine, and getting to know the people who drink it. The locale of the winery promotes urbanity and social-mindedness, both giving the winery access to the city and the city access to the winery. The wines are not only expressions of the local fruit, the process, and the personality of the winemaker, but also expressions of the people drinking the wine. It is a product born out of the community and thus representative of the community. Welcome to the family!
Brook Eddy, founder of Bhakti traveled to India in 2002. She was fascinated with a social justice movement based on Bhakti (or devotion through social action) and wanted to learn more about it firsthand. On the journey she fell in love with two things that would ultimately become the foundation for her life’s work. The first love was this idea that no matter what your station in life, you have a responsibility to contribute to the community and doing so will have a pervasive and lasting impact. In the communities where she learned about Bhakti, families would invite her into their homes and share their experiences about how this social movement had impacted them and their communities over a cup homemade spicy chai. She couldn’t help but fall in love with its incredible flavor and aroma. When she returned home, she began brewing her own chai. Standing over the pot of steaming chai on her stove and inhaling the layers of fragrant spices, Brook was suddenly swept back into the chaos, colors and vibrancy of India and all that she had experienced there.When her homemade brew gained attention (and even addiction) from friends and neighbors, she decided to take the principles of Bhakti that she had learned in India and build a company on this ideal. This single mother of twins took a deep breath, quit her full time job, and dove into the process of bringing consumers a craft-brewed chai that was steeped in social and environmental change.

Black Project is the personal passion project of James Howat, owner and brewmaster of what was formerly Former Future Brewing Company. Black Project began production in January 2014 and won bronze medals for coolship ales (Category: Experimental, Subcategory: Wild Ales) at The Great American Beer Festival 2014 and 2015.
All of our beers are fermented with microbes captured from the local environment via our coolship. We believe this creates a beer that is unrivaled in complexity. Our beers are intended to have a sense of place, terroir, no matter how hard one tried our beer could not be replicated outside of our brewery. In fact, our microbe cultures are purposefully allowed to evolve from batch to batch, creating variations and interesting twists from different releases of the same beer.
Laws Whiskey House is a fiercely independent Colorado distillery committed to producing the highest quality whiskey using local ingredients. We are guided by three simple principles: CRAFT OVER COMMODITY – QUALITY OVER QUANTITY – WHISKEY ABOVE ALL.® Al Laws took concepts from paper in 2006, to production in 2011; in October 2014, Laws brought whiskey to glass, harvesting only when the whiskey said it was ready. Today the Laws team of dedicated craftsmen employ the same “no-compromise, no shortcuts” approach to making a growing family of high-quality, authentic American whiskeys that capture the character of Colorado and the people that make it.
Their four ingredients:
Carbonated Colorado Water
Pure Cane Sugar
All Natural Flavors
Non GMO Citric Acid
They make the highest quality, most unique soda in the World. It just happens to also be All Natural, non GMO, Gluten Free, Kosher, and Vegan. They custom craft each of our flavors in small batches and package every bottle by hand the day it is made. The end result of our efforts is realized in every sip you take. We thank you for the opportunity to present our soda for your drinking pleasure. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do… Cheers!
