Freshcraft was a member of the class of 2010, the creation of brothers Lucas and Jason Forgy. Lucas was working as a chef in Milwaukee when Jason, a self-described beer geek, approached him with the idea of opening a casual, comfortable restaurant that would serve a menu of homemade comfort food paired with a giant roster of truly exceptional craft beers. When the Thunderbird BBQ address opened up on a hot LoDo restaurant block, the Midwesterners took on the space and opened Freshcraft. The concept is more casual than fine-dining, but also more upscale than a sports bar. The menu features familiar bar-room appetizers, as well as soups, salads, sandwiches in a couple of sizes and a handful of hefty entrees. The list is mostly American: burgers and Reubens and just about anything that can be battered and deep-fried. But there's an international influence, too, seen in the tacos and schnitzel and other foods that go well with beer. And, of course, the beer is just fine on its own.
