Do you want the good news first or the bad news… okay the good news.
Denver Beer Co., the new brew pub on Platte street in LoHi/CPV is opening up August 12th. The ribbon cutting invite is right here Facebook style. The starting lineup: Platte Pils, Graham Cracker Porter, Kaffir Lime Wheat, Gear Up IPA, Rye Twenty Five, Confluence Pale Ale, and Summer Stout.
You can also vote for your favorite brews here and see if the Denver Beer Co. Brewmasters are watching.
Ok, now the bad news.
Remember when I wrote the post that we were losing the Squeaky Bean at their Tejon location but the silver lining was that those great mixologist masters from the Bean were going to reopen a new cocktail bar called Occidental in the same spot (and hopefully a new Squeaky Bean somewhere else in town).
Well the silver lining turned out to be fake… the word on the street is that the landlords and the Occidental team couldn’t come to an agreement.
Really? It’s like Washington arguing about the debt ceiling… nothing ever happens.
Oh well, I’m disappointed to say the least. First the loss of the Bean and then the dashed hopes about the Occidental going in. I wonder if the ARV Holdings (the landlord and folks tied into Rosa Linda’s next door to the Bean Spot) have something planned for that location and just don’t want a deal. I’m sure someone out here knows what they were thinking but that someone isn’t me.
Anyhoo. The Bean’s cocktail master Sean Kenyon is temporarily (?) at Euclid Hall while a new hot spot for the Squeaky Bean is negotiated.
I heard a rumor it could be the previous site of Little Peppinas… but it’s only a rumor.
Since Beer is the winner of this post today’s photo comes from a very very very little mountain town known as ParPan in Switzerland where Ali and I hiked up a mountain with friends to find this little tiny wooden shack serving beer, sausage, and blocks of cheese. Yep folks, when you are doing mountain hikes in Switzerland you might just run across beer and cheese to be eaten at picnic tables looking out to the mountains. Awesome!
Here is the rumored location… anyone heard of any other possible locations?
