North Star Has Gone South
Sad news in northwest Denver. On July 31, North Star Brewing Company, the restaurant, bar and microbrewery at 3200 Tejon Street, pulled its last pint. As of Friday morning, Kyle Carstens’s beer-and-tater-tot joint was dark, the shades pulled on all the windows, the neon off.
I’d called the place twice in the previous week, trying to track down the rumor that the place was shutting down, and both times I got quote/unquote employee on the phone who were so hammered they could barely speak – beyond claiming that they had no idea what I was talking about. But it’s definitely true: A sign on the door pronounces that North Star is "Closed 4 Good. Gone Fishin'."
