Prost Brewery Tour Draws a Thirsty Crowd of Designers

Oct. 28th 2012

A big thank you to all of those that bared the rain on Wednesday and joined us for our Fall Oktoberfest Networking Hour at the Prost Brewing Company that opened late this summer.

Once everyone got settled in and grabbed a beverage we had a tour of the brewery where all the magic happens. Prost focuses on German lagers which are rare to Denver breweries. This brewing takes longer and they use two large copper kettles to begin the brewing process, which were shipped over here from Germany to give that authentic German taste to all their beers. It was quite interesting to talk to the owner of the brewery as he was highly involved in the construction and starting up of this brewery. After the tour WiD members mingled around the equipment and enjoyed their freshly brewed beers.

Calling All Do-It-Yourselfers, Artists, Teachers…and more!

Oct. 10th 2012

FREE MATERIALS for upcycling…courtesy of ZeroLandfill Denver.  2 Days Only!

You will be received with a smile and sleep better at night!

If that isn’t enough to get a creative soul interested to learn more, perhaps this will help:

  • ZeroLandfill is a national initiative that is committed to reducing pressure on local landfill capacity specifically targeting Architecture, Engineering and Interior Design firms and their material samples.
  • In their initial effort this past Spring, the local chapter, ZeroLandfill Denver, diverted 9000 pounds of waste from landfills. WOW!
  • In their second effort, (happening now) the materials have already been collected and just need to be picked up for upcycling.
  • Hundreds of pounds of ceramic tiles, carpet samples, binders, fabric, etc. are waiting to be claimed and have their lives extended so they don’t unnecessarily head off to the landfill.

The pickup location is Design Materials Will Call, 10498 East 49th Avenue, Denver on Friday, October 12th or 19th from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
