Do This: Beers, Gears & The Whole Hog

RockyMounts aims to satisfy the cyclist’s sweet tooth this Thursday, with ice cold beer on tap and slow roasted pork on the spit.

Beers, Gears & The Whole Hog promises big fun for a good cause, with proceeds going to one the world’s great bicycling organizations, Boulder’s own Community Cycles.

Everyone’s invited. The party features beer on tap by Oskar Blues, an 8-hour, spit-roasted whole hog by the fab Boulder eatery Oak, and a duo of local semi-celeb bartenders. Join in from 5 – 9 p.m. this Thursday, June 13 at RockyMounts’ Boulder showroom: 2055 26th Street in Boulder.

This event is one of the popular “Guest Bartender” series put on by RockyMounts and Oskar Blues. An earlier party featured the beer pouring talent of local cyclist Ryan Van Duzer, and money raised went to InterCambio. (Awesome, right?)

The almost famous cyclists slated to pour beer at this Thursday’s Beers, Gears & The Whole Hog are Andrew “Just Keith” Unkefer and Michael Robson.

“I love what Community Cycles is doing and it’s my good fortune to help,” explains Unkefer, a local cycling enthusiast who is by day a commercial real estate developer at Multiprop, Inc. Unkefer became acquainted with Community Cycles when his good friend and cycling partner Jerome Contro passed away in 2012. Unkefer sold Contro’s large collection of cycling apparel and gear, and then donated the money to Community Cycles.

“To honor my friend by supporting people who want to get into cycling and may not have the resources to do so felt right,” Unkefer says. “It’s really generous of Bobby (Noyes – RockyMounts’ owner) to host this event and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. We’re hoping for a big turnout.”

So come.  Your initial donation will be $5 if you arrive by bike and $10 if by car. Plan to give much more if you can. The grub, brew and entertainment are splendid grade, and the end goal – a buoyed Community Cycles – is priceless.
