Owned by James and Tina Pachorek, who also own the Cheeky Monk Belgian Beer Cafe next door, Lost Highway will have six beers on tap: a pilsner, a blonde, a wit, a pumpkin, a Belgian quadrupel and a Belgian IPA, along with fresh bread, charcuterie, olives and other "lunchables," says Tina.
The Pachoreks first announced their plans to open a brewery -- originally called Three Saints to fit the Belgian theme -- in October 2011, but ran into numerous problems with the building and their contractor. He eventually had to be replaced.
The Lost Highway name came about because of Colfax Avenue's designation as U.S. Route 40 -- once the gateway to the west, at least before I-70 was built.
Last year at this time, the Pachoreks revealed that they had hired a brewer -- T.J. Compton of C.B. & Potts -- and that they had entered two beers into the competition at the Great American Beer Festival; they received their permits in 2012. Although the beers were brewed and entered, it would be a year before the contractor problems were worked out and the building completed.
Lost Highway will open at noon on Saturday and Sunday and keep regular hours after that. It will hold a grand opening sometime after GABF.
