When he opened FATE Brewing in January 2013, Mike Lawinski had a hunch that his two patios might be ideal for watching July 4 fireworks blasting off over Boulder's Folsom Field. "We almost marketed it last year, but we wanted to test our theory first," he says. The theory turned out to be correct. FATE's patios feature cornhole games, flat-screen TVs, a trellis with hops growing on it, a few patio armchairs, and heaters in the winter; there are views of the base of Chautauqua and the Flatirons year-round. Customers can order food or just beer -- say, the refreshing Watermelon Kolsch. "We really want people to just enjoy it, push a few tables together and be as comfortable as possible," Lawinski says. "I don't think we skip a beat from inside to outside, which is something that places can have trouble with."
