For the 2024 Natural Selection Tour, the premier backcountry snowboarding competition, it has partnered with 10 Barrel Brewing to make Pub Beer the Official Après Beer of Natural Selection Tour. Pub Beer adds its inaugural title sponsorship with snowboarding’s most progressive competition to a growing list of partners in the culture, including The Bomb Hole, Monster Children and Slush Magazine.

This new partnership has brought together two pillars in the outdoor space. Pub Beer’s partnership with Natural Selection strengthens the core snowboarding community while bringing Cheap Fun to the après for competitors and fans alike.

10 Barrel Brewing is known for its ethos of “Drink Beer Outside,” and for innovating award-winning brews that defy convention. Once a radical concept for the craft beer brand, Pub Beer reinvented norms with an easy-drinking, economical lager that quickly became a mainstay on and off the slopes.

The brainchild of snowboarding icon, Travis Rice, Natural Selection Tour has risen to the pinnacle of snowboarding since its first event in 2008, changing the way the world views competitive riding. Its unprecedented contest format features the world’s most daring freeride athletes taking on natural and naturally enhanced obstacles in wildly dynamic terrain.

Among the riders, Pub Beer also backs veteran competitor, Ben Ferguson, a man who’s led the charge in progressive snowboarding for years. From athletes to media outlets, and now to its biggest backcountry event, Pub Beer’s supportive role in the community has become integral to the core culture of snowboarding.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Pub Beer as the Official Après Beer of Natural Selection Tour,” said 10 Barrel Brewing Marketing Director, Brian Hughes. “Our attitude at 10 Barrel is simple – Brew Beer. Drink Beer. Have fun doing it. This collaboration with Natural Selection Tour allows us to bring that vision to the world of backcountry snowboarding, amplifying the après-snowboarding experience and celebrating the spirit of adventure.”

As an optimistic renegade in the craft beer space, Pub Beer’s trailblazing spirit compliments Natural Selection Tour, challenging conventions and redefining expectations for an end-product in a league of its own. By locking arms with the most progressive competition in action sports, Pub Beer aims to help carry the torch of competitive snowboarding and its community into the brightest future possible.
