Help Yourself to a Beer: A Second Helping of Westword Food and Drink, March 2-6
First Draft will allow you to pour your own beer when it opens this summer.
First Draft/Mark Slattery
Craft beer fought back against the industrial giants this week: Jonathan Shikes visited Caution Brewing, where several Denver breweries have collaborated on a pumpkin peach ale to highlight the hypocrisy behind Budweiser's pro-macro Super Bowl ad. And who knows, maybe you'll be able to help yourself to one of those pumpkin peach ales when First Draft, which will be Denver's first self-serve beer bar, opens this summer.
