Beer, Punk Rock and Drag at Denver Brewery

Share Post

Denver’s Ratio Beerworks is a craft brewery with punk rock roots. So when Spencer Duncan approached Ratio about hosting the Punk Rock Drag Show series, the brewery was all in.

“This represents our spirit,” says Ratio Beerwerks Marketing Manager Tristan Chan. “When we do stuff like the Punk Rock Drag Show, it’s all about creating the safe, welcoming environment.”

Along with providing a forum and an audience, Ratio donates $1 from every beer sold during Punk Rock Drag Shows to One Colorado, the state’s largest LGBTQ non-profit organization.

Ratio has hosted six as of summer 2019, with another planned for later this year.

Tristan and Punk Rock Drag Show host Spencer Duncan tell us how the plan came together in this video.
