Heartfelt thanks to those who support us. 

Ampersand Ice Cream

In 2016 we traveled through the classic distilling of the Lowlands, Highlands and the coastal ranges of Scotland; in 2017 we ventured beyond those ancient traditions into the world of today's contemporary craft distilling.  This year, The Mad Duck's Alex Costa and his team will take us on a journey away from Scotland to another ancient land, as we explore the fine art of Japanese whisky, where they have taken a vital corpus of work from the Scotch masters and imbued their own flavor and style to create a libatious masterpiece. Specially fashioned Mad Duck craft brews are always featured, and with our humble thanks, Cru Wines will generously flow this year.  Substantial artisanal fare will once again complement each tilt of the glass, while the Ben Boone designed jazz ensemble and a silent auction of works from some of the valley's finest artists will ensure our journey to Japan and back will leave us fulfilled in body, heart, mind and Ed spirit.​  ​

The HAMMER Tunes & Tires

WTF food truck

This year's TUNES element of the HAMMER features Liverpool's hot indie-rock band, BANNERS, as well as Southern California's Jeff Brinkman Band,

AC Myles and Call Me James, all gathered together in celebration of community, music and a grand adventure on two wheels.  Mad Duck Craft Brews, phenomenal food trucks, Allard's Art booth and other activities for adults and kids will complete the festive atmosphere.  The festival is a family-friendly event and admission is free to the general public.  

​The TIRES element of the HAMMER is a Road Rally format event with options for professional cyclists and rookies alike. Two-time National Champion, Olympic medalist and 3-time Tour of  California winner, Levi Leipheimer, participated in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 events and will be one of many

returning in 2018.  

​The Hammer Road Rally is a serious ride celebrating the love of adventure on two wheels.  It is perfect for your adventure road bike with 25c or larger tires. If you're going for the gravel options, most road cyclists will be comfortable on 28c tires, and are recommended. But if you're not comfortable with gravel descents on a road bike, you might even want to throw on some tires with a minimal amount of tread. To each his or her own!  Cool swag and unique awards are a given. Festival admission and a meal and drinks are also included with your cycling registration.

Whether you choose to ride or not ride, dance to the music or simply relax and enjoy it, The Hammer is an idyllic time to revel in good spirit and fond memories, while creating some new ones - as Ed would. 

If you would like to volunteer to help at the aid stations, Marshal, SAG, set-up or take-down, hospitality or kids activity station...We would love your help. Whether you have an hour or two or six, there is something for every skill level.   Contact our friend, Lisa, at Bike Monkey for more info.  She's awesome.

You certainly don't have to partake of whisky, wine or brew to appreciate this inspired gathering, as it is ultimately about enjoying the kinship of good friends and family.  Come join us.  Tickets are now available.

​​​​​​​​​​​A fine Scotch and a flagon of ale were two of Edward's favorite potations at the end of any good day.  Blessedly, there were many good days for Ed.

It is because he held a special place in his heart for the lands and libations of the Scots and exceptional art, that we gather as friends and community each year to explore the nuances of these uniquely creative endeavors at our Whisky, Brew and Art Affair, in celebration of those worlds Ed loved.

The Hammer Tunes & Tires

Edward was an avid cyclist and music lover throughout his life.  He never tarried around an opportunity to best his last time on a bike or enjoy an eclectic selection of tunes on and off the dance floor.
