This steak place was crammed with nurses in town for a convention, but even they couldn't save an overdone cheeseburger that we ordered medium rare, but arrived without a trace of pink. And a replacement was just as DOA when it was delivered. The gracious (if overwhelmed) management did take the $7 ... More >>
Baseball fans are in for a few new treats when they return to Coors Field this weekend -- although if they're not careful, those treats will get the fans too drunk to remember what they were. Team owner Dick Monfort led several dozen media members on a walking tour of the stadium on Wednesday and s ... More >>
Craft breweries and related companies love April Fool's Day and each year, they skewer their fans, their competitors, big breweries and themselves with jokes. But these breweries are also innovators, and a couple of years ago, one of these jokes actually became reality when Wynkoop Brewing produced ... More >>

I chose this cocktail because I'd never had a drink with an emoticon in its name -- but I should have paid attention to its ingredients instead, because they turned out to be Jim Beam Eight Star, red wine, Coors Light, orange juice and simple syrup. It tasted like a fancy version of a Skip and Go Na ... More >>
Yours Truly, Cupcake is now open on Upper Larimer, with a novel business plan: The bakers inject booze into every confection, creating combos like a Coors Light cake and a Whiskey Sour lemon cake with whiskey icing.
Tiffany Rose Goodyear came up the idea for Yours Truly, Cupcake after winning a cupcake challenge in 2009. Inspired by Denver's burgeoning experimental food scene, she decided to make her cupcakes unique by adding alcohol to the mix. "Before we introduce a new cupcake, our confectionery bartenders ...

As evidenced in our "7 best-dressed (and undressed) fans at Colorado Rockies home opener," the fans at Coors Field were far more entertaining than the shutout loss for the home team.

Yes, those are the only options (but at least the brews are local). I was so stunned by the cost that ... More >>
After spending two-and-a-half years and a boatload of money on research, Molson Coors learned that women don't drink beer. At least, 79 percent of the women they studied don't drink beer. And since that represents a sizable market untouched by the brewing industry, the company decided to craf ... More >>
Rockies Coca-Cola hat.With the Colorado Rockies mired in a weeks-long slump, there are fewer and fewer reasons to go the ballpark in the heat of the summer.
