3 Hundred Days of Shine
We make the best sippin’ moonshine this side of the Continental Divide. In fact, we think that Southern ‘Shine has nothing on us.
Originally dubbed Colorado's unofficial slogan in the 1870s, "300 days of Sunshine" encouraged frontiersman to head west. Our products are made in Colorado's Rocky Mountain Front Range using methods that predate prohibition. 3 Hundred Days of Shine is a smooth moonshine infused with natural ingredients to create an experience that brings you back to a time when quality, craftsmanship and tradition were important.
3 Hundred Days of Shine is the vision of six Colorado families. Our distiller, a retired Army EOD Veteran, produces these small batch recipes by hand. Bringing together the time-honored traditions of old with the technologies of today, we provide a western American moonshine experience you will remember for its full flavor and easy drinking.
Our distiller makes all of our Western sippin’ shine by hand in delicious flavors - Apple Pie, Margarita Moon, Summertime Strawberry Lemonade, Firebomb, Peach Cobbler, and Colorado Honey. Come on down to the distillery or visit a local retailer to taste for yourself.
We will often feature fun new flavors at the Distillery Tasting Room which will soon include: Pineapple, Wild Berry and Lemon Lime and Sweet Iced Tea.
Jack Rabbit Hill Farm
Jack Rabbit Hill is a diversified farm located in western Colorado’s North Fork Valley, near the town of Hotchkiss. Our 70-acre property grows 18 acres of grapes, sheep, and cattle. When it comes to making tasty products, we have our noses in the dirt as much as in the glass, because all great beverages start with clean growing practices! We started out in 2000 as a certified organic farm, and got into biodynamic farming in 2006.
Jack Rabbit Hill products are available in Colorado and throughout other U.S. and European markets. We host tours, tastings and visits year-round by appointment.
Rising Sun Distillery
In 2004, two self-proclaimed foodies, Sol & Dawn, set out to find an opportunity to open a fun and creative business in the food and beverage industry. The right opportunity had to blend Sol's business savvy and technical leadership in the technology industry with Dawn's great abilities as a cook. In the winter of 2011 they hit on the idea to open a Colorado micro-distillery in their home town of Denver. While working to open their location they discovered that making spirits was in Sol's blood. During prohibition his family was moonshining outside Chicago. As the story goes the old still remains buried in a secret location in Indiana.
In 2014, with a few dollars and a new still (the old one hasn't been located yet) Rising Sun Distillery was born.
At Rising Sun Distillery our mission is to produce the finest hand-crafted distilled spirits and have fun doing it! As a true micro-distillery, we pride ourselves on making sure every lovingly prepared batch of spirits is as good as it can be. How do we do it? It's simple, we do everything from scratch and we don't cut corners. For us, this means starting with the best locally sourced produce and grains we can get our hands on. Using this approach is smart, sustainable, and oh so good! We then process our raw ingredients and prepare them using pure-filtered Colorado water. Finally we distill it to perfection with our custom built equipment and artfully finish it for your consumption. While other processes may be easier, we know doing it this way creates the best quality and consistency for making each and every batch.
Life's too short not to drink well! We invite you to enjoy our products responsibly and make Rising Sun spirits your everyday getaway!
State 38 Distilling
Agave spirits: We ONLY use 100% Organic Raw Weber Blue Agave as a base for our five agave spirits. Each batch is fermented in small 250 gallon tanks using crisp Colorado Rocky Mountain Water. After fermentation, the Agave mash is distilled through custom copper stills designed specifically by Owner/Master Distiller Sean Smiley for State 38. When distillation is completed, the high proof alcohol is blended with reverse osmosis filtered water and either bottled immediately after to make our Agave Blanco, or redistilled and carbon filtered to create our clean, fresh, World’s only agave based Vodka.
If barrel aged spirits is your thing (it certainly is ours), our World’s only barrel-reserved Gin goes through another distillation process using only handpicked Colorado juniper berries and a special mix of organic spices, then barrel aged in charred North American White Oak Barrels and allowed to age 1 month to make an intensely crisp, spicy and outrageously flavorful spirit. Last, but certainly not least, we also take our Agave Blanco and fill it into new heavy charred North American white oak barrels where the agave spirit will age and become Agave Reposado (aged 3 months) or the only Anejo made from scratch in the United States, our Agave Anejo (aged 18 months).
Loveday bourbon whiskey uses specialty malt grains to create a smooth chocolate and coffee finish to the bourbon, complementing its mellow oak noise and sweet caramel front. McKenzie Scottish peat smoked whisky uses grains originally sourced from Scotland with real Scottish peat smoked malted barley, creating a soft oak nose with a vibrant peat smoke front and rich chocolate finish.
Wood's High Mountain Distilling
The inspiration for Wood’s High Mountain Distillery was founded by brothers P.T. and Lee Wood and their passion for outdoor adventures. The goal to bottle the essence of the Colorado Mountains was created deep in the Grand Canyon after many days on the river and bottles of whiskey shared among friends.
After the gathering of equipment, a building, and distilling know how, the brothers started creating spirits that give enthusiasts the ability to bring a little high mountain living to wherever they are.
“We have been distilling in historic downtown Salida, CO since November 1st, 2012 with a copper German pot still built in the 1880’s, named Ashley. The art of creating a flavor which reflects our passion is based off of Colorado’s spectacular 14’er mountain water. We share our spirits in the hope that when people sample them, they are able to taste the adventure that got us here; and our excitement, hard work and passion for distilling.” - PT Wood
Red Wolf Collective
Red Wolf Collective started as a group of local artists meeting for brunch on Wednesdays to share knowledge and experience as full-time Artists in Denver, in order to support one another and grow as entrepreneurs. Since 2017 they have been exhibiting work together in local art shows and now have a gallery here at BOOZ hall RiNo featuring work by members Amanda Vela Charbonneau, Cody Kuehl, Ashley Joon, Jen Herling, and Matt Verges.

Cody is a Colorado born New Western Artist. Born in Northern Colorado, Cody moved to Denver 8 years ago to pursue his art more seriously in the metro area. In the intervening years, Cody has displayed in many galleries around town as well as shows around the country. Cody’s work seeks to tell one image stories of the West, which is a genre of art that often glorifies a fundamentally flawed American character study. With images that are “more West than West”, he seeks to build up and undercut many of the myths and truths that we hold as an individually American identity. You can find his work on display here at BOOZ hall, and at Gallery 1505 on South Pearl St. In Denver. Connect with him at Kuehl.email@example.com.
The need and desire to create called so loudly I had no choice but to become an artist. My love affair with creating started as far back as I can remember, holding coloring books like sacred treasures. I grew up moving states every few years and hated feeling like the new kid. Art gave me an outlet that kept me company. I briefly lost my connection with art while finishing my business degree and working in the corporate world. It didn't take long for me to notice how unhappy I was without creating. I became determined to find who I was artistically and to live a creative life. After 7 years of due diligence in the studio teaching myself how to paint, I found my creative voice. I’m happy to say, for the past 4 years, I’ve been living my dream as a professional artist in my Denver studio.
Every purchase big or small helps supports me continuing my passion. To purchase, Venmo @AshleyJoonArt and take item off the wall. Make sure to follow @AshleyJoonArt for behind the scenes in the studio.

He has pride in his ability to work in a diverse range of styles, but his most prevalent themes are the strangeness of nature, the duality of life and death, and dark humor. His art has been showcased in numerous galleries, festivals, and events around Denver. When he’s not hunched over a drawing tablet, you can find him skateboarding, rock climbing, or sword fighting a two-year-old.

Something Vinyl Club
Something Vinyl Club started a couple of years ago when Wesley Barnes realized he had a problem. What once was a hobby had become a habit, and buying records was now an all-out obsession. His friends, family, and partner all urged him to stop, but he wanted more and more records...
Before he knew it, he was up to his ears in stacks of records. He was forced to form tunnels among the stacks of vinyl that littered his floors. It finally reached a tipping point when he couldn't even reach his turntable to listen to any records!
He recognized that his way of living was no longer sustainable, nor enjoyable. He chose to accept that a change was much needed, and that he had to let go of that which he had held so dear. (Well, not all of it. But some of it. Just the duplicates, and the records he doesn't spin when he's DJing. Or the really rare stuff that someone else would love, and that he would be too afraid to play anyway for fear of possibly scratching it.)
And so it came to pass that Wesley learned how practicing non-attachment to something he truly loved enabled his ability to share this love with others. At pop-up vinyl shops, 'Vinyl Nights', and Farmer's Markets he shared his fairly-priced vinyl collection with the good people of Denver. In truth, he was sharing the experience of finding your favorite record, again and again.
This new path felt more sustainable, and more enjoyable, than his old habits. This was the start of Something Vinyl Club, a club where anyone who appreciates good music on vinyl is counted as a member. Before long, this act of sharing came back to him, as folks offered their old collections for him to sell. It was the gift that kept giving!
The idea caught on, and business owners were eager to book a pop-up vinyl shop or 'Vinyl Night' of their own. And although he loved sharing his joy of records with others, Wesley grew tired of carrying around crates of records up and down and here and there and everywhere. His lower back grew sore.
After some searching, he found a new place unlike any other in Denver. Or anywhere else for that matter. It was called "Boozhall": a pink and vibrant building in the arts district of Denver. With art and alcohol all under one roof, all that was missing was a vinyl shop. He loaded up his truck full of records and parked that sucker right inside the building and set up shop. He felt right at home at Boozhall RiNo.
This is where you will find Something Vinyl Club and all of Wesley's crates of records. He carries anything from Folk to Funk, Soul to Soundtracks, Classic Rock to Jazz Fusion, 80's Pop to 90's Hip-Hop... There's an ever-rotating, always-changing selection of albums to be found! On occasion, you'll hear him spinning records from the back of his truck, which he has converted into a DJ booth. There's something special about spinning vinyl that people appreciate, and they show their appreciation by singing and dancing along.
Do you like good music? And appreciate vinyl, too? Welcome to the club.
