Fun At Ska Brewing

Our tapping party for Euphoria Pale Ale last Friday was a blast, packing the Ska tasting room with folks eager for the start of winter.

A-DUB ROCK kept the party pumping with their special blend of Rocky Mountain Reggae.

Arlo from Ska and Lisa from Venture present a VERY excited winner with the grand prize giveaway - a brand new Venture Zephyr!

No doubt about it, this guy was stoked. We hope he enjoys the ride!

A longtime Venture/Ska devotee packs his trunk with sixers of the hoppy elixir. His reason for hoarding beer? "I'm going to Utah..." 'Nuff said!

Best of Test!

The retailers have spoken: Venture's Storm-R model is a "Best of Test" in the Rocky Mountain territory!

Snowboarder Magazine's Best of Test Snowboard Review takes the pulse of savvy shop staffers at the largest on-snow retailer demos in the nation.

Snowboarder queried more than a hundred riders at events in California, Colorado, Michigan, Vermont, Utah and Washington last spring to find their picks from literally thousands of demoed models.

Hardpack, pow, moguls, boxes, banks, cliffs, corduroy, quarterpipes, halfpipes, steeps, cat tracks, glades, loose granular - you name it, these testers rode it all. Keystone, CO played host to this event in the Rocky Mountain territory, and when the final votes were in, Venture's Storm model took top honors!

One tester commented on the board's "great control and precision," while another stoked rider said "this thing charged all over..the mountain."

Venture is surely onto something with the newly redesigned Storm, as the split version of this model was also named a Backcountry Magazine Editor's Choice.
