Kickin’ up the Hops with Revelation Ale Works

Revelation Ale Works

Craft breweries are “hoppin” up everywhere and it is awesome. Revelation Ale Works is about to kickstart a Northwest Minnesota craft brewery aimed to launch in 2016 with a hometown, family feel.

This unique brewery is looking to brew and distribute local ales with a family friendly taproom in the heart of downtown Hallock. They are going to be open to all ages and dogs, serving beer alternates of craft sodas, kombucha, and coffee.

Their final approach for the project is running a Kickstarter campaign to get the final funds to get their brewery set up right. Revelation Ale Works has an awesome logo, as seen above. With every level on their Kickstarter pledge options, backers will get their logo decal included. Not only will people be founders of Revelation Ale Works but they will get to represent them with their awesome premium white decals.

Start a local business the right way, get support through pledges with custom decals to back it.

Sponsorship Desk: Go Code Colorado 2016

Tonight kicks off Go Code Colorado, an event we’ve sponsored for the past two years (see coverage for 2014 and 2015), and this edition begins at Galvanize in Denver.

This state-wide, state-sanctioned coding initiative features events in Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Grand Junction and Durango, and the Challenge Weekend will take place April 1 – 3. Mentor Weekend  will be from April 15 – April 17, with the Final Event taking place on May 26.

This year’s edition has a longer development schedule than last year’s version, so the teams can:

“…work on their apps and business concepts much earlier and longer than previous years. At stake: a mentor weekend in Boulder for the 10 semi-finalist teams, and $25,000 for the final three winning teams.”

The sponsored stickers for 2016 feature three different shapes (see above): a teardrop with a code-based design, a circle with all of the participating cities, and colored gradient on a rounded square.

While this event unfolds over the course of the spring, we’ll have more coverage. If you’re on Twitter, check out the local hashtags for your region: #GoCodeBldr, #GoCodeCoS, #GoCodeDen, #GoCodeDgo or #GoCodeFoCo. You can also connect on the Go Code Colorado Facebook page and the Go Code Colorado Linkedin page.

And as the event organizers like to say: “Whether you are an app developer, entrepreneur, member of the press or a curious citizen—the kickoff event has become a can’t-miss event for anyone wanting to network in and keep a pulse of the Colorado tech entrepreneurship community.” So come grab some appetizers & drinks at Galvanize Platte in Downtown Denver.

Check out this video to get a closer look at last year’s Go Code Colorado events.

Sponsorship Desk: Sunny Southeast Regional Workshop – Stone Mountain, Georgia

At StickerGiant, we love our local parks, open spaces and rivers, plus the access to nearby National Parks like Rocky Mountain and the many museums down in Denver. That’s why sponsoring a local event like this year’s NAI Regional Interpreter’s Workshop at beautiful Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia, means a lot to us, because it’s the people (the interpreters) behind these institutions that really make them special. The theme for this gathering is Interpreting Nature and History in an Urban Environment, and attendees will be networking and enjoying fields trips throughout the Atlanta region. Interpreters connect visitors to important cultural resources and help them learn about places.
Here’s some more about the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) from their website:

The National Association for Interpretation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to advancing the profession of heritage interpretation, currently serving about 5,000 members in the United States, Canada, and over thirty other nations. Individual members include those who work at parks, museums, nature centers, zoos, botanical gardens, aquariums, historical and cultural sites, commercial tour companies, and theme parks. Commercial and institutional members include those who provide services to the heritage interpretation industry.

Here’s a video from the NAI about what it means to be an interpreter.
