RMU Partakes in its First Oktoberfest: By Emily Booth

Tis the season for cooler days, colorful leaves — and seasonal beers, of course. The town of Breckenridge kicked off this year’s Fall season with their 23rd Oktoberfest, while RMU got to partake in their first. And what a better place to celebrate the famed German festival than RMU’s very own beer garden? Oops, we meant, Biergarten.We kicked the weekend off with a tap-takeover featuring two of Germany’s most famous breweries, Bayreuther and Maisel's Weisse. Both breweries hail from the very region Oktoberfest originated, giving patrons the opportunity to taste a few of the most authentic German beers in town. If a taste wasn’t enough, we offered 2.5 liter glass boots as a vessel of choice too. Hey, Oktoberfest only...

Behind the Bar: Charlie MacCrone

Behind the Bartender:  Charlie MacCrone by Emily Booth This week, RMU would like to take a minute and highlight one of our most decorated bartenders, Charlie MacCrone.  Odds are, if you live in Breckenridge, you’ve had the pleasure of letting Charlie pour you his latest and favorite cocktail.  It’s probably been accompanied by a loud, but hospitable ‘hello,’ and a ‘decent’ joke or two. Whether he’s sporting leather pants on the 4th of July, or his go-to, vintage Budweiser sweater, he can’t be missed. And if his boisterous personality isn’t enough to lure you in for one or two drinks, perhaps his stories are. Hailing from the panhandle region of Florida, Charlie’s first experience with adventure was via skydiving. Given...

The Grrowler, the World's First Water Bowl that Turns into a Dog Collar

When we introduced The Grrowler, a dog collar with a water bowl built in, people said, "Are you freaking kidding me? You're telling me no one has thought of this yet?" Well, Men's Journal called it "Best in Show at Outdoor Retailer". This patent pending product is a solution to the most common issues dog lovers face while on an adventure.  Outside Magazine said the Grrowler was the "best invention of all time". The concept is easy. We designed a dog collar that has a built in water bowl, with room for a spare leash (included) and doggie convince bags. To use it, simply unzip the top and bottom, open the bowl and pour in the water.  Check out what others are saying...
