Snowboards for Craft Beer Drinkers

Odell/Ska SnowboardsCraft brew snowboards a growing trend? It would appear that way. Both Odell Brewing and Ska Brewing have recently put their brands on some promotional snowboards.

Odell Brewing of Fort Collins is raffling off a snowboard made by OZ Snowboards-Colorado Crafted at their Mountain Standard Bash this Saturday. The raffle will benefit CSU Snowriders.

Ska Brewing also has a branded snowboard for both their Euphoria Pale Ale and for their Modus Hoperandi. Ska's boards were made by Venture Snowboards and feature Ska's ever animated skeleton mascot.

All of these boards have been featured in giveaways from their respective breweries over the last couple of years. Recently these boards were featured on Facebook and Twitter and caught some attention.

What do you think? Is this a cool trend for Colorado breweries? They may even make an expensive collectible to hang on your wall.

Brand labeled promo snowboards are nothing new, but they are trendy for craft breweries. Other breweries have also made branded snowboards like Tommyknocker Brewery, Oskar Blues, Founders Brewing in Michigan, Redhook Brewing, Alaskan Brewing Company, Granville Island Brewing, New Castle Brewing and Horny Goat Brewing Company. Here's hoping that trend continues.

If you can't find an existing brewery snowboard you can always approach a snowboard manufacturer and have one custom made just for you.

I'd love to see a Big Beaver Brewing snowboard with their "'bout got 'er licked" slogon on it. What would be your favorite beer-themed snowboard design?
